Who doesn't know it, the nerve-wracking minutes that go by to untangle the headphone cables. Despite practical tools around which you then try to wrap the cables properly, you end up not using them.
What a liberation this was when, in 2009, we were able to enjoy music immediately without the hassle of cables. The generation growing up today will hardly know these anecdotes, because we have arrived in the world of wireless enjoyment, and it is still booming. In 2020, the wireless headphones market cracked the billion-dollar mark for the first time. In just one year from 2019 to 2020, sales in Germany rose by around 40% to €1.3 billion. A decline in the wireless trend is not in sight. Due to increased demand from mobile devices, the headphone market is also on the rise. The increasing number of video conferences continues to have a positive influence on the trend. What sounds high-end today only because it has a cable attached will be on an even higher level tomorrow without a cable. In the future, those who still own headphone cables will frame them in pictures as a relic of the past.
