iPhone 5 EarPods

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

What do you guys think of the new EarPods? 3 years of design for a new headphone. Included in the 5th generation iPod Touch, 7th generation nano, and with the new iPhone 5...

I think that they are not a portable device but instead belong in Portable Headphones, Earphones and In-Ear Monitors forum. which there are already two threads there.

I think they will be the same **** as apple earbuds.

we won't know til we get to hear them.  

 

Just remember Apple innovated the whole category of buds and created a passable in ear experience for dirt cheap.  I would expect another innovation, but let's see how far up the quality ladder they are once we can actually hear them.  It could be a big step up for the millions of non-audiophile, non-headfi users who to this day still use those ubiquitous white buds.

too bad, these arent included in to the new shuffle (updated).

I wouldn't expect too much out of them since they're freebies with the new iPhone... but of course they'll sound noticeably better and perhaps more comfortable smile.gif

There is a pretty good thread on the Portable Headphones area.  Might help you out.

supposedly they are much less poo than the old buds but the one review i saw still found the cx300's to be far better so i dont expect them to make much impression round here

I am reviewing them right now.  I can't say I'm a fan.
