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.
- Designed by Apple
- Deeper, richer bass tones

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

Amazing so far

I would be prepared to pay around £75 for these because I have found the quality as good as my beats which cost well over £75 …

Amazing for the price, especially with foam covers
As these were always falling out of my ears I hunted around to find some extra large foam covers.
I found the difference in so As these were always falling out of my ears I hunted around to find some extra large foam covers.
I found the difference in sound amazing - from an okay £25 pair to an outstanding £100 pair for around 50p.
I've tried a lot of different 'phones in my time and with foam covers they are only beaten by an old pair of Shure in-ears I have (and the Apple earpods are much more comfy for long listening.) …

Clear sound, comfortable but utterly useless in day to day use
These came with my iPhone 5s, I tried them just to see how they would compare to my Dr.Dre Beats I got with my old HTC some 4 year These came with my iPhone 5s, I tried them just to see how they would compare to my Dr.Dre Beats I got with my old HTC some 4 years ago. The sound quality is great - providing you're sitting in your living room with no people around. On the street you can hear EVERYTHING that's going on around you, they cancel zero noise. They are comfortable but don't stay in your ear even when just walking around, forget about running with these. Mine are now permanently confined to my PC at work as that's the only thing they are good for, my 4 year old Beats beat these hands down in just about every single aspect. …

Get a good pair of in-ear headphones like the $13 Panasonic RP-TCM125. You'll get much more immersiv Get a good pair of in-ear headphones like the $13 Panasonic RP-TCM125. You'll get much more immersive, accurate sound than you could ever get from earbuds like the EarPods. Don't get me wrong, the EarPods are about as good as you'll ever get in earbuds, but you'll get a much better experience from in-ear headphones. …
