EarPods with Lightning Connector

  • 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 maximise sound output and minimise sound loss, which means you get high-quality audio.

    The EarPods with Lightning Connector 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.

      A Significant Improvement

As an avid runner, I was dismayed when my bluetooth headphones failed to survive the washing machine and was left with the prospect of what to do until the AirPods came out. These more than fit the bill. My running playlist heavily features a great deal of twee music and these EarPods greatly reproduced the panoply of jangly guitars, whisper soft vocals, and benign snare drums. I threw Angel Olsen's new album at them next (lots of earthy, meandering folk intermixed with a few pop tracks) and they more than performed. They sound better than both the 3.5mm EarPods and several high-end bluetooth headphones I've owned. These are a steal for what they're priced at. Am I upset that they won't plug into my Macbook Air? A bit, but I'd still recommend these.

      Surprisingly Remastered Very Well!!!!!!

      I had a feeling these new lighting EarPods were going to be good. They have a surprisingly punchy sound to them, great vocals and clarity. The bass is good to.

And for the price these are seriously worth buying, highly recommend giving these a chance.

      Watch for Ear Damage!!!!!!

      They are great until you get a text notification or ring. They will BLAST you out of your seat! Apple has provided NO WAY to control the notifications loudness They are great until you get a text notification or ring. They will BLAST you out of your seat! Apple has provided NO WAY to control the notifications loudness unless you remember to do it before a text comes in. There's lots of noise about this from other consumers and there is NO FIX.

      Shameful

      The EarPods actually work great with my iPhone 8 but I'm giving it one star regardless because I can't use them for my MacBook Pro (Early 2015). Of course Apple The EarPods actually work great with my iPhone 8 but I'm giving it one star regardless because I can't use them for my MacBook Pro (Early 2015). Of course Apple had to be pretentious and "try something different" despite the super obvious design flaw. What they need to do is release a Lightning-to-3.5MM adapter (basically the inverse of the one that comes with the newer iPhones), THEN I'll consider changing my review.

There was an issue with the volume controls after 10 months or so. It kept randomly pausing things. Since it was within a year of buying the phone Apple replaced for free. 3 months later the replacement right earphone and controls stopped working. A couple of weeks later the left earphones stopped working.
