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 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...

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 EarPods Review

 

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...

Apple's new EarPods headphones

 

Apple's new EarPods headphones: what's the verdict?

Secure and comfortable fit ; Solid bass ; Improved overall sound

Sound leakage ; Fit still far from perfect

If you don't have a set of EarPods, are they worth spending $35 for? In the world of headphones, $35 is fairly inexpensive, and if you're simply looking to upgrade from existing Apple earbuds, or to replace a lost or broken set, we can recommend the...

Hands on: Apple EarPods review

 

The Apple EarPods have been three years in the making but was it worth it?

Slick design ; Decent bass ; Improved noise isolation

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