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

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.

      Can’t even make a decent set of EarPods?

      All these cool gadgets and they can’t update these useless EarPods? Why even include them in the box? They’re so bad. Waste of box space and money. Either upgra All these cool gadgets and they can’t update these useless EarPods? Why even include them in the box? They’re so bad. Waste of box space and money. Either upgrade them or don’t make us pay for them when we buy a new device. It’s been five years since they updated the design, but all they did was go from one crummy design to the next. 99% of customers just buy new headphones from third party companies.

      Product review, not old person review.

      I’ve been using my EarPods for the last 2 years and they work just as good as it was originally, besides tiny scuffs and dirt. Reviews of poor quality must not I’ve been using my EarPods for the last 2 years and they work just as good as it was originally, besides tiny scuffs and dirt. Reviews of poor quality must not have been in good care. The whole point of Apple ditching the 3.5mm jack is to use wireless headphones (because blue tooth works on EVERYTHING). Wireless is the future. Do you expect to be using wired headphones in the next 5 years? The EarPods are for people who want to stay in the old age who like plugging things in. But Apple ain't forcing you to get these because you can just as easily buy lighting versions of your favorite earbuds you use for your phone.

      Faulty right out of the box

      I bought an iPhone 8 today and the EarPods with lightning connector were faulty right out of the box. I checked to make sure the port wasn't faulty, and confirm I bought an iPhone 8 today and the EarPods with lightning connector were faulty right out of the box. I checked to make sure the port wasn't faulty, and confirmed it was just the EarPods. This is pretty disheartening for a product I bought less than six hours ago.
