Apple EarPods review: A $29 revolution in earbuds or another set for the recycling bin?

 

Whether you think they're infamous or merely a signature piece of Apple design, there's no doubt most of us have been exposed the company's iconic white

Comfortable fit ; Best-in-class sound quality ; Improved inline remote

Not ideal for loud environments ; White cord, earbuds will get dirty fast

Apple's EarPods are a clear improvement over the company's old earbuds, but that's not saying much.

Apple EarPods Review

 

After 11 long years, Apple finally decided it was time to update its ubiquitous white earbuds. During its September 12 launch event, Apple introduced the EarPods, calling attention to all the design and engineering efforts that had gone into their...

Considerably improved bass ; Slightly better short-term comfort ; Slightly larger in-line control microphone

Hot and brittle treble ; Midrange sucked out ; Still uncomfortable for long-term use

When all is said and done, Apple’s new EarPods are an improvement on the earbuds they replace, but only marginally so.

Apple EarPods

 

After 11 long years, not counting a very minor mid-cycle update, Apple has finally completely redesigned its trademark white earphones that come bundled with every iPod and iPhone. And with good results. In fact, Apple may have achieved the impossible:...

Great sound for the price. Surprisingly strong bass considering it's not an in-canal design. Inexpensive. Includes small carrying case

Design still doesn't fit everyone. Doesn't block out any external noise and some sound leaks out

Apple's new EarPods are the better-fitting, better-sounding earbuds iPods and iPhones should have had all along.

Apple EarPods (with Remote and Mic) review: Apple EarPods (with Remote and Mic)

 

As part of the launch of the iPhone 5 and new iPod Touch and iPod Nano , Apple introduced a set of completely redesigned earbud headphones , the EarPods. Apple says they were three years in the making.

The Apple EarPods offer mostly impressive sound, with good detail and better bass than Apple's previous headphones. They're also lightweight, with a comfortable fit, and have an integrated inline remote and microphone for making calls and controlling...

Some people may find that the EarPods don't fit securely in their ears, and these earbuds also let in a lot of sound and leak a little sound, too.

Apple's EarPods offer much-improved sound over the previous standard-issue earbuds, but they won't fit all ears equally well -- and that fit will determine whether you think they're great or just so-so.

The new Apple EarPods are here and they are an incredible improvement.

Not the best in the world, but extremely impressive for $30 new

Review: Apple’s new EarPods

 

I already had tons of earphones in the house.

Nice, new ergonomic design ; Great sound reproduction ; Relatively inexpensive for its class ; Stays in the ear

Not very loud ; Distorts a little at maximum volume

Apple’s EarPods aren’t the perfect pair of buds, but are certainly decent, inexpensive earphones that stay comfortably in your ears.

Apple has changed its iconic white earbuds quite a few times since their inception with the first ever iPod. Improving them little by little. This time Apple drastically improved and redesigned one of the most discerned headphones ever created. The new...

According to the Cupertino brand - the Apple EarPods took three years to create, but was it worth the wait? We went ears-on...

Slick design ; Decent bass ; Improved noise isolation

Pricey for the quality ; Don't feel entirely stable ; Sonics lack clarity

As far as Apple audio goes, the EarPods are certainly a welcome improvement. There's no way that we would've recommended using the Cupertino brand's previous earbuds, but the EarPods do the trick if you don't want to splash out on a new pair, having...

Apple EarPods review

 

If there has been one certainty when it comes to Apple products since the launch of the original iPod, it was that the headphones in the box were rubbish.

Comfortable, volume control on cable, sound good, cheap

Easily fall out, no real depth to the bass

Overall we are very pleased with the performance of the EarPods
