the bitch SCP-XXXX-J, shown here, plugged into a █████ brand smartphone.

Item #: SCP-XXXX-J

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-J is to be kept in a 20 x 20 x 20 meter cell at Site-██. The object is to be under 24-hour video surveillance to lessen the chances of a containment breach.

Description: SCP-XXXX-J is an ordinary pair of █████ brand earbuds. The object has multiple anomalous properties. SCP-XXXX-J will, at random intervals, disappear and reappear somewhere else, usually within 100 meters of where the object was originally located. SCP-XXXX-J tends to "favor" certain reappearance locations. These include buried in blankets, on the floor of sleeping quarters, under beds, in backpack pockets, in the back of desk and dresser drawers, and in pants pockets. It favors the pockets of teen's hoodies particularly, for a reason currently unknown. The object's "teleportation" to random locations has not been able to be impaired as of yet, classifying SCP-XXXX-J as a Euclid class object.

The object's second anomalous property is that, when it is not being viewed, it will become tangled. This effect will manifest regardless of how tangled it already is. Even if you straighten that shit out and wrap it up all nice, it will still become tangled because it's a bitch. The duration of time that the object is not viewed has no effect on this. SCP-XXXX-J also becomes more tangled when on a teenage subject, particularly in a backpack, hoodie pocket, when plugged in to a smartphone, or in a school environment. The reason for this is unknown.

When SCP-XXXX-J becomes tangled, any human subject who makes contact with it enters a state of emotional distress, and is compelled to untangle it. Many subjects have reported the state of emotional distress to be extreme anger, feelings of frustration, and even sadness or extreme depression. This is considered normal, as this thing is really damn annoying because it won't stop getting tangled up every time it isn't watched, for Christ's sake.

Addendum: Contact with SCP-XXXX-J is not to be made when at all possible, but in the instance that the object becomes tangled, 1 emotionally stable and extremely patient D-Class personnel is to be dispatched to untangle it. In the event of a containment breach where SCP-XXXX-J relocates itself outside of its containment unit, 1 D-Class personnel is to be dispatched to locate the object and return it to its containment unit. Due to the object's display of favoritism towards certain environments, it has been tentatively classified as animate.
