  • It just depends on how long of a torso you have, I'm 6'1 and I run with my ear phones in and my iPhone at the bottom of my pocket with just a little bit of slack, so I would say they would probably reach. Unless you're much taller than I am.

  • The In-Ear Headphones for reasons I don't understand are a solid 12"+ shorter than the standard Apple headphones.

    I am taller (6'6") and there is no way I can use the In-Ear Headphones and put my iPhone in my pants pocket.

    I can do that fine though with the Apple Earphones that came with my iPhone.

    I'm still trying to find a compatible extension cord that will support the Mic, controls, etc. on my In-Ear Headphones.

  • I suppose it depends on how tall you are. I'm pretty short and I can put my iPhone in my back pants pocket and still have some slack.

  • The cord could stand to be a couple inches longer. I'm 6'1" and when I wear pants with deeper pockets the phone has to stand up absolutely vertical which, inevitably, it doesn't and the earbuds pull on my ears. I am searching online now for a "long" version. I'd like to use it at the gym too, with the iPad on my treadmill.

  • The answer depends on your body length and the placement of your jeans-pockets.

    I'm 1,93 meter. I'm wearing standard jeans with pockets on a standard position (no skater stuff or something). The cable is long enough for me when I put my iPhone in my pocket.

    This cable is just a few centimeter shorter then the original iPhone earbuds, about 3cm I suppose.
