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

 

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

When all is said and done, Apple’s new EarPods are an improvement on the earbuds they replace, but only marginally so. It’s hard to imagine anyone would compare the two and express a preference for the older model. With that said, we had hoped for a...

Apple's EarPods sound decent -- if they fit

 

The iPhone 5 and new iPod Touches now come with new, improved in-ear headphones with a built-in mic. While they're a lot better, they do have some potential shortcomings.

The ; 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 your music...

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.

Apple EarPods

 

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

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.

Performance and Conclusions Second welcome surprise: Bass. In my tests, Muse's "Uprising" had all the kick drum and midbass rumble it was supposed to have. In Metallica's Mastered-For-iTunes "Hate Train," I could still hear the kick drum even with the...

Apple EarPods HEADPHONES

 

The Apple EarPods are simple but decent earbuds for casual listening. They're well-built, comfortable but not the most versatile headphones as their open fit lets in a lot of noise. They're also a bit too unstable to run with (unlike the ). But, on the...

Great portable design. ; Simple and easy-to-use controls.

Poor isolation from ambient noise. ; Easily falls out of your ears. ; Bass and treble delivery varies significantly across users.

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.
