Apple Announces EarPods Earphones

Apple today announced a new model of earphones, dubbed EarPods, to be shipped with the iPhone 5, the fifth-generation iPod touch, and the updated iPod nano. EarPods will also be available as a stand-alone accessory purchase starting today and priced at $29.


The new earphones feature a revised design to better fit a wider range of ear shapes and sizes and direct audio straight into the ear canal. The EarPods will still have a 3-button remote to control volume and playback on compatible iOS devices and Macs.

It will be interesting to hear and feel them. I was not able to wear the old headphones. Far to painful for my ear.

I don't know about the rest of you, but this is the feature I am most excited about. I've always hated those ear buds, ever since the original ones. They're just uncomfortable. I hope these will feel better. They sure didn't design them to be pretty, anyway.
