As stupid as the name “EarPods” is, Apple has completely redesigned their headphones. These headphones have a much better fit to them, meaning they won’t fall out as much, or at least that’s the idea here…
Here’s a description from the Apple Store online:
The Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic are designed to rest comfortably inside — and stay inside — a variety of ear types. The audio quality is so superior, they rival high-end headphones that cost hundreds of dollars more. And you can use the improved remote to adjust volume, control music and video playback, and answer or end calls on your iPhone.
I sure hope these headphones are good. They look rather odd to me, but if they sound good and actually stay in my ears, I’ll be happy.
