EarPods - Apples newest entry into IEM - Page 7

post #91 of 164

These leak and dont isolate pretty much at all.

They leak far less than before - there is a graph midway down in this review that shows the difference from the old.

Well comparably to the old ones but they still leak, its like using a pair of PortaPros.

the whole point of these earbuds is that they DO allow sound in.  I'm sure if they sealed out sound, somebody wearing them would get hit by a car and then sue apple.

I quite agree that them being open is a conscious choice by apple, both for safety and convenience (You don't have to remove them to order something when you're at starbucks, just pause the music).

 

Also, I think the open design improves the sound stage quite a bit, and for me, this is their main selling point.

@Arve: Good to hear that. I am looking forward to trying them out when I get the new ipod touch.

Was wondering if anyone knew if the newest generation iPod touch would have better sound compared to the older generations iPod touch?

I hv been using the Earpods with my iPhone5 for a few days ksc75smile.gif

Honestly, it's even worse than UE350......

Ye, they're not designed to isolate and i think this was wanted by apple that way.
Also their soundstage is quite a treat.

Then CrApple are deliberately launching their drone machines into the world with the explicit intention of inciting maximum rage and annoyance in public places.

Damn them. Damn them to hell.

Golden Ears measured the earpods-- the results correlate well with the other two set of measurements as well. 
I'm sold... almost.


But GE is raving about the bundled in ears of the Optimus G (phone?) at the moment. To me, it's encouraging that people are getting (supposedly) better headphones bundled with their phones.
Ahem, overpriced phones. :P

And here I am reading e-mails on my Blackberry. Blackberry FTW!

Just to update after a week of use~ I think the Earpods sound pretty good paired up with the iP5. But when pairing them up with my iMod+iQube, the deficiencies are immediately noticed.

 

On a different note, I've noticed that the TF10 pairs very nicely with the iP5~ etysmile.gif
