    They say the new ear pods are sweat and water resistant, but I wouldn't recommend trying it just for the heck of it. Its not something you should do often, but again, they are supposed to be sweat and water resistant:)

  • I already bought it last month, i like the design it did not slip in my ear , also not so loud and not so low but it seems the quality is low than the first one and sometimes it did not work at the same time

  • Found my pair in workout shorts that had gone through a full wash cycle in the washing machine. Amazingly they still work like new. Remote and earpieces.
    I had multiple problems with the remote on the previous versions from moisture.
    Its appears those issues have been corrected on this version.

  • I think it's sweat + water resistant, but not sure. You can go on Youtube and search "Apple Earpods Review And Unboxing" and that's where I got the answer. I'm heading over to the Apple Store to get these today!
