I bought these as an experiment to reign in the tangle on a pair of Yurbuds earphones, the kind without a mic. (I saw the note above about the mic) For that purpose this is a truly excellent device. You just fold the cord in half, load it in, tug back to unlatch the spring, and let the rotary bit do the winding. Their demo video is pretty good.
There's a couple of points not covered by the video, though, which I'll address here:
1. You can adjust the tension. If you feel the winder is pulling too hard on your earphones when they're all wound up, you can change that a bit. Just use a twist-tie or a ballpoint to force the latch to activate until the winder is completely unwound. Then you re-wind it until it's got enough wound spring to gently take up the entire length of your cable and no more.
2. You don't have to let go to wind things up. Once you loop the cord around the winder's catch, you trip a small latch that undoes the ratchet holding...
Overall, this works really well and it's light and easy to carry around. The only improvement I would suggest is making it able to stop mid-wrap, so that you could use the headphones while they were still partially wrapped in the winder (to shorten the wires, for example, when my iPhone's sitting on the treadmill three inches from me. The earbuds must be entirely off or fully wrapped up, so I'm a little nervous about losing the winder. But other than that, I'm very pleased with it.
I have been using Recoil Winders daily over the past couple of months and couldn't be happier. The winders are deceptively simple and solve the problem of tangled cords in a clever way: rather than toting around cords in various states of disarray, I now use winders to neatly store them in my car, home, and backpack. As an added bonus, it is faster to use the winder than it is to half-heartily attempt to store them in a way that won't lead to a tangled mess when I need them later.
I have 2 (small) winders that I use to store headphones (in ear buds: 1 for the gym, 1 for everything else). These winders have gone through approx 100 wind/unwinds and still work flawlessly. I use another winder (medium) to store an iPhone/iPad 30 pin connector and carry this in my backpack; I haven't wound/unwound this one as much as the others, but it is always with me - without the winder I wasn't willing to deal with the mess and left the cord at home.
