I’ve reviewed some Boxwave products before and they have a very clever
"winding" mechanism included in a lot of their products. The
Boxwave MiniSync cable scored highly with me and… let’s be honest,
this does too. Before I’ve even got it out of the little packet I know it’s
going to score well. The "winder" mechanism is a little like a
As you pull the cable out you’ll hear a soft "clicking"
noise. Each click is where you can stop, let go and the cable will stay at
that exact length until you give it a quick tug (oo-err) to get it to wind
back in again. As you can see above, there’s plenty of cable to play with
Above you can see how the cable winds all the way in. The

I hate cables. I hate going around the back of my TV because
I know that there’s cables there. I hate having to get heaphones out because
I know that there’s going to be knots galore. This wins me over big style.
Neat and tidy, not messy knots or cable to deal with as you’re about to
listen to your favourite tunes – bang on. The cable isn’t stretchy or
twisty, it’s flat and very durable and doesn’t get knotted. On the end of
this is a 2.5mm gold plug which goes directly into your C500 – no adaptors
needed! The sound is crisp and clear, with great bass and treble response.
Look. it’s feckin brilliant. Get one.
These particular headphones (or "miniBuds")
are available here for $22.95 (about £12.50) and come in various colours
and you can get 2.5mm or 3.5mm variants!
