MAGZET is a Kickstarter project that looks to bring MagSafe-like functionality to the audio jack.

The MAGZET consists of a MAGkap and MAGjack. The MAGkap is attached to the end of your headphones cable and the MAGjack is inserted into the headphone jack of your device. Using magnetic technology the MAGkap snaps together with the MAGjack. If your headphones cable accidentally gets yanked, the magnets will come apart.



Notably, the MAGZET is compatible with the controls on your headphones allowing for mic, volume, and track control. It also keeps the same audio quality.

"We took the design time and have run tests to make sure the Series1 functions correctly with all your favorite devices, including Apple and Android-based models. You will still be able to answer calls, use the mic, adjust volume and skip tracks via the cable inline controls when using the Series1. The audio quality is superb too! Whether you’re using your favorite phone, tablet, headphones, or computer, we have made sure that your device’s functionality, audio quality, and features will continue to work just as you have always experienced with your wired solution."

You can pledge $35 to get one of the first MAGZET adapters at the link below.

I dropped my phone with headphones and still stay with the cable plugged in. I can handle the yank feeling from the earbuds to.

Its already patented. And the patent killed a similar project. Check: http://www.fastcodesign.com/3016412/magsafe-for-headphones-is-here-and-patents-have-already-killed-it

The opposite has been more helpful. I have dropped my phone, only to have it saved by the headphone cable inches from the ground. Cool idea, but maybe more for a MacBook than iPhone.

What a wonderful idea, because it's well worth $35 plus shipping if it allows me to YANK cords out of my phone at a moment's notice. I'm sorry, but aside from once or twice tripping over a cord (on my desktop or laptop), I've NEVER had a need for such a service.
