Here are some photos we have of the new EarPods earbuds for iPhone 5, the new iPod touch and nano.
It’s been a while since Apple last redesigned their earbuds. With the launch of the new iPhone 5, they decided to refresh the earbuds as well.
It comes with a travel case, which is probably ideal if you are a frequent traveller or if you like to get things organized.
The shape is pretty unique, don’t you think? According to Apple’s website, their designers created 3D models of various ear types to find a common shape across many different people. That shape led to the unique look of the new Apple EarPods. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphones.
It was also claimed that over 600 people tested the new Apple EarPods during its development. 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.
How about sound quality? Apple sound engineers were focused on improving sound quality, which we believe they were successful.
Take a look at the acoustic vents 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.
Our first impressions are they look good and the deep bass is quite impressive. Hopefully, we can get our hands on the iPhone 5 soon!
