Unlike traditional, circular earbuds, the design of the new Apple EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphone.
The speakers inside Apple EarPods have been engineered to minimise sound loss and maximise sound output. So you get high-quality audio that’s just as impressive as what you’d hear from more expensive headphones.
The Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic also include a built-in remote that lets you adjust the volume, control the playback of music and video, and answer or end calls with a pinch of the cord.

Well worth the purchase
I have been looking to buy a new set of headphones for a while, however, couldn't justify spending £100+.
This evening I decide I have been looking to buy a new set of headphones for a while, however, couldn't justify spending £100+.
This evening I decided to buy a set of EarPods from my local Apple Store. The quality of the sound as good, if not better than some of the professional headphones I have tried over the last month.
The tones are clear and the base is superb. I thoroughly recommend EarPods if you are looking to replace your headphones …

Amazing but Noisy

Improvement on the last but still not good enough, I usually use my Sennheiser CX300II headphones and they've finally kicked it, b Improvement on the last but still not good enough, I usually use my Sennheiser CX300II headphones and they've finally kicked it, back to using the apple ones temporarily and the sound is shocking. Im no audio expert but theres a clear difference in the sound quality, and for the cost of these you could get a decent pair. When you spend £500 on a phone you would think they could chuck in a lasting charger and decent set of headphones haha! Taking liberties apple, sort it ;) …

So which one is better between this Earpods and In-Ear ??
- Asked by Kunakorn Y from Bangkok
I really like these new Earpods! They sound fantastic. They do not completely seal out background no I really like these new Earpods! They sound fantastic. They do not completely seal out background noise but can handle high volume quite nicely. Great for biking,hiking,walking,running(YES! they stay in your ears!).Great for situations where you have to be aware of your surroundings.
In-Ear types are great if you want to put out the "Do Not Disturb" sign. They seal out almost all background noise to force more created sound into your ear canals. It also increases friction noise like your headphone cord rubbing while you're in motion.
My vote is for the new Apple Earpods! We use all of our sences naturally. Why eliminate one. …

I have ridiculously small ears so these, like the regular apple earbuds, didn't fit at all for me. B I have ridiculously small ears so these, like the regular apple earbuds, didn't fit at all for me. But a couple of my friends who's ears were also too small for the regular apple earbuds have said that these fit them fine. They clearly fit a more wide variety of ears though so if regular earbuds were too big for you, there is still hope :) …
