EarPods with Lightning Connector

Need some help? .
  • 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 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.

    Highlights

    Designed by Apple

      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.

I took good care of them, I only ever really took them to school and there’s no outside damage. I have no clue why they stopped working. I can’t hear the music no matter how loud the volume is. I also used the earphones with another phone to see if my phone was the problem, but still no sound would come out.

They work fine for a month or two, then one side will go out and then the next. $30 each time for a faulty product. These are obviously engineered to break as you can see the overwhelming 1 star reviews and yet they make no correction. Not to mention there are very few other options out there. I actually like a $10 set of wireless earbuds I got from Target but it's a hassle to have to recharge earphones. I'm officially done with Apple products. I'll ride this phone out and when it's done I'm done as well. It was bad enough they took the headphone jack out so you can't charge your phone while listening without another $30 accessory. You would think a company that wants to keep it's customers happy wouldn't put out a product that gets 90%+ terrible reviews. Worthless and infuriating

      Sound quality dreadful

      Just received my new iPhone XR, complete with wired EarPods that connect through the lightening connector. I have previously used $79 Klipsch ‘in ear’ phones w Just received my new iPhone XR, complete with wired EarPods that connect through the lightening connector. I have previously used $79 Klipsch ‘in ear’ phones with 3mm jack plug to listen to my mp3 music. So I was interested to try these Apple pods and compare them to my previous excellent Klipsch units (now redundant unless I buy a converter). Well to say I was disappointed is an understatement, they are dreadful for music. I am sure they will be fine for taking calls, but not for music. Now that Apple have removed the 3mm socket I had hoped the ear pods would be ‘good enough’, unfortunately they are not!
