10 coolest things of the week

Tapper in GQ Magazine

As the great André 3000 once asked, “What's cooler than being cool?” That's right, “Ice cold!” And these 18k gold-plated AirPod chains from Tapper are practically freezing, so fresh and so clean, just waiting to hang around your neck and blind passers-by when they catch the sunlight. Sure, you don't need them, but did you really need those £159 AirPods in the first place? Thought not. If you're going to flex, then at least flex hard.

Will a Swedish start-up’s US$90 accessory to keep US$249 AirPods safe find any takers in China?

Tapper in South China Morning Post

A fashion accessory has come to the rescue of AirPods owners in China who fear losing their expensive wireless devices.

Tapper, a Swedish start-up, plans to sell smart looking leather straps and chains to hold the AirPods and AirPods Pro in China as early as April, according to co-founder Robin Westlund. It will initially be available at the upmarket Chinese retail chain SKP’s outlets in Beijing and the northwestern city of Xian before the brand potentially rolls out e-commerce sales.

But the seemingly counter-intuitive design has led to initial commercial success. The company sold 3,500 units within days through US department store Nordstrom after discussions about the accessory blew up on social media in early December, Westlund said in a recent interview.

These $60 ‘anti-loss’ straps turn your AirPods into normal headphones

Tapper AirPods Carrying Strap in New York Post

Designed by Swedish manufacturer Tapper and available from Nordstrom, the device is touted as one that “protects your Apple AirPods. The magnetic lock snaps the AirPods around your neck.”

Nylon and leather versions with brass detailing are available via Nordstrom, but gold-  and silver-plated versions are up for grabs on Tapper’s UK-based site.

”We believe that premium products should be a combination of great functionality and smart design,” Tapper hypes.

Well, perhaps there’s a built-in audience for such retroactive accessories.

Tapper AirPods Carrying Strap in ABC7 News

 Airpods are having a moment, and if you have them, you know they're pricey.

To ease the anxiety of losing the wireless earbuds, retailers are now selling carrying straps.

They're a sort of leash for your expensive earbuds.
A company called Tapper makes them and retailers like Amazon and Nordstrom are selling them. All you have to do is attach the carrying straps and suddenly the wireless buds look like -- you guessed it -- headphones. Someone on Twitter is going viral with commentary, "Ladies and gentlemen, we have officially come full circle."

The straps cost about $60 on top of the roughly $150 to $250 for the airpods.

Regular old headphones? $5 and up, and straps are included.

How not to lose your AirPods: Put them on a $60 cord

 Tapper AirPods Carrying Strap in CBS News

Scared of losing your AirPods? Here's one way to secure the pricey, cordless earbuds: Attach them to a cord. Nordstrom is selling a $60 leather "AirPod Carrying Strap."

"Avoid losing your wireless AirPods by attaching them to this magnetic-locking leather strap," reads the description of the product, which the retailer recommends "wearing around the neck when not in use." 

More than 5,000 online shoppers were viewing the accessory Tuesday afternoon, according to website analytics.

Retailers like Nordstrom and Amazon are selling items like a $60 AirPod 'carrying strap' to capitalize on people's anxiety around losing a wireless earbud

Tapper AirPods Carrying Strap in Business Insider

Anxiety over misplaced AirPods has been on the rise since the product was first unveiled in 2016. The ease at which a single bud can go missing has become the source of chronic stress dreams and mounting detritus on subway tracks. (I myself have personally lost one or both of my AirPods several times in the less than six months I've owned them — and that doesn't count the time the charging case was run over by a Lyft.)

"I actually felt free," one AirPod user told The Wall Street Journal after one of his AirPods fell onto the runway while boarding a flight. "I'm back to holding the phone to my ear, which seems primitive. But, hey, it works."

In response, some retailers are looking to capitalize on the fear of losing a singular AirPod, which as a set retails for either $159 for the regular model or $250 for the recently released AirPod Pro. On Monday afternoon, a viral post mocking a carrying strap on the Nordstrom website began making the rounds on popular Instagram meme accounts like @FuckJerry.

"Ladies and gentleman, we have officially come full circle," @FuckJerry wrote on a post that currently has more than 200,000 likes.

You Can Get AirPod Carrying Straps That Make AirPods Normal Earphones Again

Tapper AirPods Carrying Strap in Unilad

The straps, which let the AirPods dangle around the wearer’s neck (you know, like the wire already attached to earphones), have magnetic locks that are said to ‘protect’ your pods by snapping them around your neck.

Sold by Tapper, the straps come in a range of different colours and materials – ranging from nylon to leather to gold-plated rope chains – and cost anywhere from €30 to €70 (£25 to £60).

Tapper

Which begs the question: why?! Sure, the leather straps look fashionable and I’m sure the gold-plated chain has its perks, but I thought the whole point of AirPods was so you didn’t have to deal with the wires getting tangled?

Well, maybe that wasn’t the whole point – that could have something to do with their impressive features – but you know where I’m coming from.

Regardless, this just goes to show we’ve well and truly reached peak millennial and there’s no turning back from here.

Shoppers are mocked for buying a $60 'carrying strap' to link wireless AirPods together.

Tapper AirPods Carrying Strap in Daily Mail Online

The carrying strap can be bought on clothing and gift website Nordstrom, which sells leather versions for $60 (£49.31).
Customers were apparently delighted and left irony-free reviews.
One wrote: 'Perfect accessory for Air-Pods. Bought this for my daughter in law as a stocking stuffer, as we are also giving her new Air-Pods for the holidays!
'Exceptionally well made and very reasonably priced!
'Highly recommend as a gift for someone special or even for yourself!'
Another said: 'Love the high quality and the touch of fashion. It's the perfect accessory for my AirPods. Can't live without it.'
One customer was a little more sceptical, commenting: 'Great idea but it's a little short. May have been better if it was adjustable. It should be a little longer.
'Otherwise, your pods will be very secure. it keeps them held in very well.'
Tapper and Nordstrom have been contacted for comment.

For $60, This 'Carrying Strap' Will Turn Your AirPods Back Into Regular Headphones

Tapper AirPods Carrying Strap in People Magazine

As the saying goes, everything old is new again.

The Swedish company Tapper has created what they believe to be the perfect solution for keeping track of your Apple AirPods — a carrying strap. But commenters have noticed one hilarious issue…

While Apple’s tiny bluetooth earpieces are notoriously easy to lose, the internet was quick to point out that Tapper’s strap essentially turns your futuristic and pricey ($159-$249) listening devices back into the original wired Apple EarPods of yore.

According to Tapper’s website, the product was dreamed up in 2016, just three days after Apple announced the original AirPods, and allows users to “avoid losing your AirPods by attaching them to this magnetic-locking leather strap and wearing around the neck when not in use.”

 

December 6th, 2019
People Magazine Online

Carrying straps are being sold for around Rs 6k to turn AirPods into earphones. Netizens are laughing over it.


AirPods are undeniably one of the most popular tech products in the market at the moment. The expensive tiny earpieces are considered futuristic and revolutionary for how they provide a unique wireless experience for the users.
However, a product called 'Carrying Strap' has been introduced by a Swedish company, Tapper, which is meant to prevent the AirPods from being lost.
How they do that exactly has a funny twist.
The product is basically a wire-like accessory that lets the user keep track of their tiny AirPods. These carrying straps basically turn Airpods into the usual wired earphones. Irony just hit really hard.
The straps, along with the website of Tapper are also being sold on several online retail websites for around Rs 2,300 to Rs 6,300 ($33 to $88).
The product is going viral on the internet and for all the right reasons. The netizens can't help but laugh over how it defeats the basic purpose of AirPods.
Interestingly, a variant of the carrying strap collection called Black Leather Lamb/Brass is already sold out on the Tapper website.

Retailers are selling $60 cords for Apple’s wireless Airpods

Tapper AirPods Carrying Strap in Fast Company

Wireless earbuds seem great, of course, until one falls out of your ear and down a sewer grate. Single Airpod Syndrome is a very real consequence of the new, untethered world of audio. That’s why Apple actually offers single Airpod replacements. That’s also why one company called Tapper introduced a solution of its own: Airpod cords. 

First spotted by Boingboing, the $60 strap wraps around your neck and connects to your Airpods via magnets. That means if one falls out of your ear, it’s anchored to your body—like a rope climber is anchored to a mountain, or, you know, a normal, wired pair of earbuds were once anchored to your phone. What more is there to say here?

"Produkten finns av en anledning och det är att det finns ett behov av att man inte vill tappa bort sina Airpods helt enkelt", säger Robin Westlund, en av grundarna till Expressen.

"Man vill också göra det lite personligare, lite som en accessoar."

Men trots hånen så verkar det ändå gå bra för Tapper. Robin Westlund säger till Expressen att man nästan har sålt slut på snörena i det amerikanska varuhuset Nordstroms webbshop.

Internet goes nuts for Swedish ”anti-loss” straps turning your AirPods into normal headphones. Three years after the founding, everyone has been talking about Tapper during the last week.

Tapper AirPods Carrying Strap in Scandinavian Man

Last week, after being featured in a post on Instagram viral account fuckjerry, the brand was picked up by a bunch of leading media outlets, including New York Post, UNILAD, Daily Mail, 9gag, Business Insider, and i-D. Some reports being ironic, some not.

— The attention the fuckjerry post garnered, along with the subsequent reposts and the products virality, certainly caught us by surprise. We’ve always known that the Tapper Strap is an easy target for quick jokes but the feedback we’ve been getting from our actual customers speak for itself; the AirPods are easy to loose and the Tapper AirPod Strap is there to assist. Plus, it looks good! With all the irreverent posts — and some quite funny memes! — our spike in sales only emphasize the want for our product, says Sandmark, adding that the brand has big plans and a new range of products for 2020.

Wireless listening is bliss. We’ve declared AirPods our most-prized piece of tech (excluding our phones, naturally) and it’s true; that is until you lose a pod. Sure, Find My iPhone allows you to see your AirPods on a map – you can even play a sound to locate them – but if your AirPods are offline, you have a problem. Clumsy, careless types can rest easy with Tapper’s chic leather strap (a nylon version is also available). It’s designed with a magnetic lock that snaps the AirPods around your neck – think mitten minders for your headphones.

A BIT MORE ABOUT TAPPER

Everything began when Robin Westlund read his final year at Stockholm School of Economics and Apple for the first time presented the AirPods (7 September 2016), which got viral in social media. Mostly with memes were seen where the AirPods got compared with toothbrushes as well as comments on how easy they would be to lose. As a result, Robin and some classmates understood that it is possible to create a product that minimizes the risk of losing the AirPods and giving them an alternative look for those who do not like what they look like when they’re being used. 

Three days after Apple's release, Robin and his friends sat overnight and created a 3D sketch of the product, built their own website and launched a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo. After 10 hours of uninterrupted night job everything was ready and the press could start. Tapper was immediately mentioned in CNN Money, MacWorld and Product Hunt. There were several other AirPod straps that popped up the months after Apple's release and it still does. However, Tapper was one of the first players, which made Tapper succeed in positioning themselves as "The World's First Premium AirPod Strap".

Tapper Leather Strap for AirPods now Available In-Store and Online at colette

Tapper, a new fashion/tech brand based in Stockholm, just launched at the iconic concept store colette in Paris. Their debut product is a Leather Strap for AirPods designed to snap your AirPods around your neck when not in use. 

The leather strap comes with brass detailing and is made of premium lamb leather. The soft shells makes it easy to attach the AirPods and thanks to the built-in magnets the AirPods snaps together around your neck. All products are handcrafted in Sweden using only the finest materials for that ultimate premium feeling.

The idea of a strap for AirPods came when Robin read about the AirPods and understood that there would be a demand for how to keep track of and use the AirPods in a smart and functional way. ”That's why we decided to design Tapper so that you easily can hang the AirPods around your neck when you're not using them”, says Robin Westlund, Founder of Tapper. 

The brand was founded in September 2016 by Robin Westlund. In March 2017 Robin's friend Robert Sandmark from the Swedish sneaker label Eytys joined the company. They both have backgrounds in the fashion industry, specifically high-end accessories and they both share a passion for technology and fashion.

”I’ve always been interested in fashion and nice aesthetics. Growing up within the late 90’s, technology and its development was always present for me”, says Robert Sandmark.

Their vision is to create innovative accessories for your most used tech products. The name Tapper comes from the Swedish word for brave or courageous. Inspiration for the name was derived from Apple's senior vice president, Phil Schiller, saying that the decision to lose the headphone jack wasn't about a wireless future, it was essentially about being brave.

Tapper is exclusively available at colette in-store, at 213 Rue Saint Honoré in Paris, and online at www.colette.fr. The product will soon also be available in Tapper’s online shop at www.gettapper.com. The product is retailing for 50 EUR and will be released at additional retailers starting in April. Additions to the Tapper product portfolio will be presented during 2018.
