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
I tried them today when my friend's iPhone 5 arrived. They do sound truly wonderful, but anyone around you will also hear what you I tried them today when my friend's iPhone 5 arrived.

What are the technical specifications for the earpod headphone?
- Asked by Lairon L from Miss
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! …

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. …

Well, these do not stay in my ears when just walking. I was very disappointed as the sound of these is great and much improved from the classic ones.
