Are EarPods water and sweat resistant?

The issue I've had with previous Apple Earbuds is that they tend to short circuit when they get sweaty during my workouts. Has anything been done to the construction of Apple EarPods to improve their sport performance?

    I put the ones I got with a new phone through my washing machine accidentally. I was, of course, horrified that my new headphones were fried, but they still worked just fine, even all wet. Plugged them in and there weren't any problems, so I'd say they're at least water resistant.

  • They have been designed differently to help resist sweat

  • Well I wouldn't say that they are completely water resistant, but they should work just fine under sweat conditions. I have listened to music underwater with mine for just a few seconds and they are still fine, but don't get the idea that they are water proof

  • No for water resistant
