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 …

Maybe for an emergency
Just tried these with my new iPhone and... horrible. As a person with small ears they were painful to wear and took awhile to fit Just tried these with my new iPhone and... horrible. As a person with small ears they were painful to wear and took awhile to fit properly to hear the music at the right volume.
Secondly, though you put it as one of your highlights, the richer bass feature would have been better if it could be turned off depending on a person's preference; for me, with quite sensitive hearing, found it quite a sickening experience. All this for the duration of one song!
Overall I would only use them for a call but never again for music. …
