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 minimize sound loss and maximize 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.

Fantastic for $30
These little suckers are on par with my Bose $130 headphones (MIE2i). They are a HUGE leap forward from the prior Apple Ear Buds. These little suckers are on par with my Bose $130 headphones (MIE2i). They are a HUGE leap forward from the prior Apple Ear Buds. There are immensely comfortable, and even the buttons on the chord have a better feel (more satisfying click) than the prior Ear Buds. As for sound, they produce a great, rich, range; with much improved bass.
I seriously couldn't recommend these more. …

Handsdown, these are best $30 headphones you can buy.
I just got these today and they are the most comfortable headphones I have ever used.
Having had high end headphones for many y I just got these today and they are the most comfortable headphones I have ever used.
Having had high end headphones for many years I can say that Apple has outdone themselves in every aspect of these Earpods.
As far as the old headphones that came with my iPhone one of the annoying parts were over time the rubber washer around the earpiece would fade away leaving the rough inner part exposed. This one is smooth and sleek. It fits perfectly in your ear with no compromise.
The first time I put these on I could not believe the sound difference.
There is a presence there that was not on the older iPod headphones.
The bass is rich but not too overbearing. The highs are clear and the mids are there to balance things out. I've tested these out thoroughly and I have to say at $30 its a no brainer.
When I saw these headphones I knew there must have been something magical about them. Apple doesn't just change their headphones without a good reason.
I've been listening to random music. One track in particular sounded just incredible on these Earpods it was Phaeleh Afterglow. I'm not sure if its on iTunes but the lows are jaw dropping.
Along with all of the Tool songs and A perfect circle. I test these with Classical works from Vivaldi, Mozart, and Bach.
This was one of the many gifts that Steve Jobs left us before he passed.
I tip my virtual hat to you Apple. …

1. The sound is a huge improvement. There is a lot more bass and clarity. They almost sound as good as my Philips O'Neil Stretch Over-ear Headphones. There is more isolation from outside noise.
2. The fit in the ear is better. They feel bigger in your ear.
3. The cord is a bit thicker and more smooth. The old version was more rubbery.
4. The microphone/control buttons are bigger and feel better made and more clicky. The microphone does not seem any better than the old version. …

I got a new set of these god awful earpods with my new iPod. They will NOT stay in my ears, so makes them useless for the purpose I got a new set of these god awful earpods with my new iPod. They will NOT stay in my ears, so makes them useless for the purpose they were designed for. Thank goodness my original pair of earpods from my second iPod are still working, though the plastic around the base of the buds is starting to perish. I even gave these new earpods to my nephew because he needed a new pair and he threw them away because they wouldn't stay in his ears either. Please Apple, listen to your consumers and offer both designs to your customers, if you offer both options, you'll increase your profits even more - however, charing $40 for a set of earpods, which are just earphones is a bit rich! …

Haven't found anything better
Sound quality & comfort of earbuds are very personal & subjective things. That said, I've tried Klipsch, Bose, & Harmon Kardon ear Sound quality & comfort of earbuds are very personal & subjective things. That said, I've tried Klipsch, Bose, & Harmon Kardon earbuds that cost $100-$150. I listen to rock, pop, blues, & some jazz. I am a hobbyist musician & consider myself to have a pretty discerning ear. In the under $200 price range, I have not found any ear buds with better overall sound quality or comfort. I have not tried custom fit earbuds (that usually cost over $400) so I can not comment any any comparison to that category of earbuds. EarPods produce deep, rich, balanced sound & stay in my ear without causing discomfort. Unless you're looking for over the ear, true noise canceling headphones, for $29 (or free with your new iPhone) these are pretty much all you need. …

What are the technical specifications for the earpod headphone?
- Asked by Lairon L from Miss
- Sep 15, 2012
The technical specifications are:
Impedance: 23 OHMS
Sensitivity: 109 DB
Frequency (high): 21 k The technical specifications are:
Impedance: 23 OHMS
Sensitivity: 109 DB
Frequency (high): 21 kHz
Frequency (low): 5 Hz
Operating Principle: Open Air
Weight: 10 g
Cable Length: 1.395 m
In other words, for £25 (currently), they're absolutely fantastic. The frequency range is slightly larger than the average earphone and I believe a low-end was boosted sightly so you get a more 'natural feel' in your ears. These are a ridiculously massive improvement on the previous earphones and in comparison to other earphones at that price, you get a lot of sound for your money! …
