Looks like it's taking the concept of IEMs without any tips to deal with. Isolation might suffer as a result though, can't really customize it to your ears.

Apple says it has mapped hundreds of ears to find " commonality  " and therefore it should fit right and deliver what they want to precisely..!

 

I am no apple fan..though..

"EarPods are designed to direct sound into the ear."

 

...into the ear you say?

" They’re more stable and durable, too. Apple engineers asked more than 600 people to test over 100 iterations of the Apple EarPods. Testers ran on treadmills in extreme heat and extreme cold. They performed various cardio workouts. They were even asked to shake their heads side to side, up and down. The result: Apple EarPods provide stronger protection from sweat and water, and they’re remarkably stable in the ear. Which means they stay in, even when you’re on the go.  "

Apple.com says :

 

Apple sound engineers — acousticians — were focused on improving sound quality. First, they established a target sound for the Apple EarPods. That target: a person sitting in a room listening to high-quality speakers.

 

The biggest determinant of what you hear from any speaker is the movement of its diaphragm. The inward and outward motion is what creates sound. But earbud speaker diaphragms are typically made from a single material, which can limit sound output.

So Apple acousticians re-engineered an earbud speaker diaphragm with both rigid and flexible materials to minimize sound loss and maximize sound output. Adding to the superior audio quality are strategically placed acoustic vents. The most notable of these vents is the one located in the stem of each EarPod. It allows air inside the stem, which acts as an acoustic chamber, to flow out. So you hear deeper, richer bass tones. The overall audio quality of Apple EarPods is so impressive, they rival high-end headphones that cost hundreds of dollars more. 

 

 

Are they serious..?

 

Guyz..

somebody technically comment on this?

So nice fit, some vents, okay. Direct sound into the ear? sure.

 

Do they sound good, though?

post #10 of 311

They mentioned ports for midrange and bass... I'm taking a guess here that these won't really have much of a high end.

 

Will probably be a hit with the general public, though.

post #11 of 311

I will most likely be buying the iPhone 5, so look out for a review ;)

Edit: and the old earbuds were the same price? Yeesh

Win over Headfiers? I thought Apple's bundled earbuds have been the reigning standard for what uninformed people thought was decent sound quality until they heard real headphones or IEMs. The vast majority of noobs on Headfi explain how they always thought their Apple buds were fine until they were blown away by some high quality headphones we recommended them to listen to.
