That or the Shuffle is only $20 and the headphones actually cost more than the shuffle itself.

 

But hey, the iPhone 4 is free with 2 year contract, and my friend's thinking of getting an iPhone 5, so maybe I'll get my chance at giving them a shot soon enough.

That's what I am saying...

 

Let's try them out, Consider them fairly, Then we can draw some objective conclusions.

I've already ordered one pair (along with a more interesting pair of harman/kardon CLs). Dear God, I couldn't resist! biggrin.gif

Will check them out especially if I decide to get the new iPhone.

So this is just their next gen earbud that's going to come with the iPhone, iPad an so on, I'm sure it will sound better than their current earbud  (anything would) but nothing special.  Its not like this is some high end product or anything so count me out, I'm not an Apple fan as it is (except for their computers).

Three Years in development...

 

How many of the IEM Manufacturers of your current stable can say that?

 

Don't discount the most recent past iBuds either. Have you seen their specs and freq charts?

I know that nobody is particularly thrilled about a new apple product so i understand you being the voice of reason, but seriously do you work for apple or something

No I simply speak from my own perspective...

The last gen of Apple earbuds weren't actually that terrible, so I'm pretty confident these will probably sound equally not-terrible, if not better.

Even it is Apple, I don't believe they could build an ear bud that could compete with those IEMs made by traditional brands such as UE/Westone, who spent all their time specifically on researching IEMs. The new EarPod might be fun to toy with tho redface.gif

Er Um OK...

If they, Apple can't do it...

How do all these other crappy little companies do it?

Just Curious, Jim

I'm pretty excited about this EarPods too... Can't wait to pre-order my iPhone 5 with this.. this can be my gym earphones.. :)

He couldn't be employed by Apple at the same time as being employed by Etymotic, that would be a conflict of interest etysmile.gif

 

Seriously though, 'Turf gives great advice if not a bit repetitive.
