Is it me or do the apple earpods...

Thread Starter 

Don't actually sound like total crap?

 

 

Complete suprise since its coming from apple. Maybe I need to get my ears checked.

The new earpods are decent and just a lot more enjoyable than the earlier (let's just say it: crappy) earbuds.

They made big claims about them...

Ah yeah, they overdid the advertising a bit. :-)

You can't. Generally what we do for a mistaken post is delete everything but a single period.

not amazing, but excellent for being included or even for the $30 they ask.  i personally have found i wouldn't want to listen to them very often but i'm really picky.  They so much better than every other apple headphone.  More bass, better frequency response.  I just find them a little fatiguing over a while of listening.  I would still recommend them as a cheap set any day though if they fit your ears well...

I have just purchased a set to use with my little Nano when I'm at work. My logic was that the in line remote would be very useful (which it certainly is with the Nano) and the fact that they leak somewhat would ensure I hear people when they are shouting me. Previously I was using the excellent Shure e500's which isolate too much perhaps. I shall test this out on Sunday.

From a pure sound quality perspective, I have to agree with the others, they are remarkably likeable and inoffensive sounding headphones and are very comfortable and easy to insert - makes a refreshing change for someone who normally listens to Triple Fi 10's and the Shure's.

All in all, no buyer's remorse from me on these.

How can you go wrong for what you get with $30?

not bad for earbuds. but some of the sennheiser line up are better choices.

SQ wise its just fun oriented, bass and bass and muffled mostly, fit is comfortable but isolation is below par, I sold my earpods after getting my A161P which was equally comfortable, a lot better in SQ, overall, these are great for 30$ for normal unfatiguing listening, not for audiophiles at all though, a lot of options @ 30$..

you simply cannot compare buds with iems.

post #13 of 21

Got a pair today with my new iIP5 and the bass is a bit much right now, but on balance, much better than the iBuds. And they stay in my ears decently enough. If the bass tames down with time, a pretty decent throw-in by Apple I say. No, not W4s or such, but not bad at all. FYI, there are some very expensive "buds" that can compare with IEMs. PK1 is one of them, and there are a few others.

post #14 of 21

Are there any buds in the same price range of $30 that are better than the pods?

sennheisers
