Apple EarPods

 

Boxed with the iPhone 5, Apple is looking to revolutionise headphones with the EarPods

Good clarity, Much improved bass response, Good remote

Weak mid-range, Quickly work their way out of optimum position

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

Apple EarPods

 

The Apple EarPods are worthy new buds for the latest iPhone 5

Comfortable fit ; Spacious sound ; Good amount of bass

Midrange a little harsh ; Could do with more precision and clarity

Casual listeners are likely to be very happy with the ones that come bundled with the iPhone 5 and the latest iPod Touch. When it’s time to upgrade, however, better sound can be had for a little more money.

Apple EarPods review

 

Apple's redesigned earphones

Comfortable fit ; Bigger clicker ; Improved performance

No noise isolation ; Muddy performance ; Awful price

There is no value to be found here. Buy something else.

Apple EarPods review: They’re free with all iPhones but are they any good?

 

Apple's EarPods are the most commonplace headphones on the planet but when they break is it worth buy a new pair?

Classic design and colour ; Inexpensive (free with all iPhones) ; Good in-line mic

Poor sound quality ; Fragile ; Tend to fall out during brisk exercise

If you’ve got a set of EarPods and are happy with them, keep them till they break and then get yourself a pair of Brainwavz Delta for £20 or the incredibly impressive Creative Outlier One for £20 instead; both are miles better than the EarPods.

New Apple EarPods review: hands on

 

Speaking of the earpieces, that's where the action is. The new earpieces have an oblong, roughly teardrop-shaped silhouette rather than the circular silhouette of the previous earbuds. This shape is the result of Apple's new design process for the...

We'll update this hands on review with more-thorough impressions of sound quality after we’ve spent more time with the EarPods.

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...

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...
