    Introduction:
    The Brainwavz Krudal Duo - Earphone Management System is the latest in earphone accessories from Brainwavz Audio, designed to help you store your earphones neatly and conveniently.
     
    Disclaimer:
    I received the Krudal Duo in exchange for my honest impressions and review. The opinions here are based on my own personal experience with the product. I'd like to thank Brainwavz and Pandora for giving me the opportunity to test their latest product.
     
    Here is the description from the Brainwavz product page:
     
    "Krudul Duo by Brainwavz, an earphone accessory made in two individual parts; Krudul Monitor and Krudul Vertical, used to store earphones in an inventive and creative way.
     

    Designed specifically as an earphone management system, the Krudul Duo allows convenient storage of earphones right by your monitor, desk space or workstation depending on which Krudul unit is used.
     

    Made from die-cast aluminum, the Krudul Duo attaches onto surfaces using a 3M VHB™, a strong double-sided acrylic foam tape making the Krudul Duo a trusty and dependable earphone hanging solution.
     

    Sold as a pair, both accessories are designed to keep your earphones safe and secure in a practical and convenient manner. A new and innovative accessory, Krudul Duo is the answer to earphone storage solutions to keep your earphones accessible and safe."

    Packaging:
    The Duo came in a compact plastic box which is very similar to the one that came with the Brainwavz Hooka. You can see my review of the Hooka here. The front of the box is clear allowing you to see the Duo inside. On the back of the box are some pictures of possible mounting options for the pair of hangers. On the sides there is a label stating that they come with Brainwavz' exellent 24 month warranty. That's all there is to it - no need for any other accessories and its this simplicity that makes them all the more appealing: you don't have to worry about screws or tools. Just find a good location and stick them on.

    Build and looks:
    Made from die-cast aluminium the Krudul Duo feels extremely durable. There is a nice, light texture on the surface which is painted black. Both the Krudul-Monitor and Krudul-Vertical are minimalist in their design and that's a good thing. After all their job is to hold earphones and there's no need for anything fancy. Having said that though I think these things look very classy, similar to the Hooka. Both have Brainwavz in white print on the surface and it compliments the appearance without being distracting. These should fit in just about anywhere and look classy and without any silly gimmicks.

    Application and use:
    These are really easy to use. You just need to decide where you want to put them, peel off the plastic from the 3M VHB tape and apply them to your monitor, desk, wall or any flat surface. Make sure though that you choose your location carefully because the tape secures itself very firmly and you may damage it or your surface while attempting to remove it.
     
    As for how to use these, it's pretty much self explanatory. You...hang your earphones in them. What else is there to say about that? There's enough room to hang 2 or 3 earphones if that tickles your fancy.

    Conclusion:
    I didn't realize I needed these until I had them. The Krudul-Monitor attached to my desk is the perfect companion for the Hooka as I'm always switching between headphones and earphones and things immediately felt more organized after I had installed it. I'm still deciding on a final location for the Krudul-Vertical but it will most likely end up either in my bedroom or living room - 2 places that I've always got earphones lying around.
     
    Priced at US$14.99 for the pair I think it's quite reasonable considering the quality materials, durability and usability. If you're like me and always have earphones littering your desk, coffee table, dresser and all other manner of places then you need to get some of these.
