EarPods with Lightning Connector

Get help buying. or call 1‑800‑MY‑APPLE.
  • 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.

      A Significant Improvement

      I am absolutely shocked at how rich and punchy these sound. As an avid runner, I was dismayed when my bluetooth headphones failed to survive the washing machine I am absolutely shocked at how rich and punchy these sound. 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.

      Brand New and Awful

      I just got these this week, and if I want to listen to music they're fine, but if I ever want to use the cellular device as a way to communicate to the outside I just got these this week, and if I want to listen to music they're fine, but if I ever want to use the cellular device as a way to communicate to the outside world, then they are absolute garbage. If I want any chance of being heard, I have to hold the phone in my hands the whole time, as close to the mic as possible (so not hands-free. May as well hold the phone to my face the entire time sans buds). And even with the mic as close to my face as possible, apparently, it's the outside world these headphones want to transmit to the receiver. Anyway, it makes it impossible to talk to people on the phone. The poor quality of these earbuds feels like an awful and greedy ploy from Apple to make us buy their blue tooth buds or continue to buy their terrible products. In either case, Apple, you can do better.

I have to put it up all the way and it’s still not loud enough for my comfort.

      Unbreakable

      I washed and dried these earbuds twice, and the only problem i experienced was a slight drop in the quality of bass. I recently dropped and stepped on my earbud I washed and dried these earbuds twice, and the only problem i experienced was a slight drop in the quality of bass. I recently dropped and stepped on my earbuds on accident, and i cracked the right earbud, only to find the quality remained the same. I don't know how, but I've had these earbuds for a year and they refuse to break.
