EarPods with 3.5 mm Headphone Plug

  • Overview

    Unlike traditional, circular earbuds, the design of the EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphones.

    The speakers inside the EarPods have been engineered to maximize sound output and minimize sound loss, which means you get high-quality audio.

    The EarPods 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.

      Fantastic for $30

There are immensely comfortable, and even the buttons on the chord have a better feel (more satisfying click) than the prior Ear Buds. As for sound, they produce a great, rich, range; with much improved bass. I seriously couldn't recommend these more.

      Handsdown, these are best $30 headphones you can buy.

Having had high end headphones for many years I can say that Apple has I just got these today and they are the most comfortable headphones I have ever used. Having had high end headphones for many years I can say that Apple has outdone themselves in every aspect of these Earpods. As far as the old headphones that came with my iPhone one of the annoying parts were over time the rubber washer around the earpiece would fade away leaving the rough inner part exposed. This one is smooth and sleek. It fits perfectly in your ear with no compromise. The first time I put these on I could not believe the sound difference. There is a presence there that was not on the older iPod headphones. The bass is rich but not too overbearing. The highs are clear and the mids are there to balance things out. I've tested these out thoroughly and I have to say at $30 its a no brainer. When I saw these headphones I knew there must have been something magical about them. Apple doesn't just change their headphones without a good reason. I've been listening to random music. One track in particular sounded just incredible on these Earpods it was Phaeleh Afterglow. I'm not sure if its on iTunes but the lows are jaw dropping. Along with all of the Tool songs and A perfect circle. I test these with Classical works from Vivaldi, Mozart, and Bach. Simply incredible... This was one of the many gifts that Steve Jobs left us before he passed. I tip my virtual hat to you Apple.

      Very Impressed

They almost sound as good as my Philips O'Neil Stretch Over-ear Headphones. There is more isolation from outside noise. 2. The fit in the ear is better. They feel bigger in your ear. 3. The cord is a bit thicker and more smooth. The old version was more rubbery. 4. The microphone/control buttons are bigger and feel better made and more clicky. The microphone does not seem any better than the old version.

      Great sound if you can bear the pain.

However, after five minutes I feel like my ears are burning. SUCH an ill-fitting pair of earbuds! Surely I'm wearing them wrong or something. I've tried every positioning trick imaginable to no avail. After a few weeks of trying, I've come to the conclusion that I'm stuck with a pair of the BEST earbuds for sound but the worst for fit. Just impossible to use. Why????

      Don't waste your money

      I can't tell you how many pairs of these I've had that have broken after a short time. Most recently I took a pair out of the box and the FIRST time I wore them I can't tell you how many pairs of these I've had that have broken after a short time. Most recently I took a pair out of the box and the FIRST time I wore them they shorted out. Now every time I try to use them Siri activates, music fast forwards or skips to another song. Will never buy these again.
