Apple EarPods With Lightning Connector Review
Apple Earpods with Remote and Mic have received their share of flak but that is largely due to the (perceived) infamy of the parent company. The look and feel remains the same - white colour with a ceramic-like finish and the design ensures that the audio flows directly into your ears. This is possible due to the driver ports now near the edge of these accessories. The cable remains the same and the audio quality is excellent. You can use the remote housing to use these accessories hands-free. The Apple earpods with remote and mic price is USD29, much lesser than competing products – getting your hands on an Apple product at such a price is indeed a deal.
With the launch of iPhone 5, Apple launched the Apple-earpods-with-remote-and-mic to replace the earphones that simply didn't make the cut in the eyes of most users. The price is the surprising element in this product. While the basic hardware remains the same, there have been some design changes made in Apple Earpods with Remote and Mic to make the sound more immersive. The remote also has seen a better design change and offers a longer range of buttons. The Apple earpods with remote and mic cord length is about 1 metre, which is similar to the previous products from the manufacturer. The cord fits into the 3.5mm jack. The Apple earpods with remote and mic warranty is limited and lasts for 1 year.
What is the sound quality ?
Apple Earpods with Remote and Mic fare well in terms of sound quality. The bass response is rich and punchy and a lot of tuning would have gone into the bass element because these ear pods don't seal your ears fully. The treble extension is also impressive and the sound is natural. The dynamic range is good for the price. The sound lacks a bit of authority though and if the position of the ear pods is not perfect, you will not enjoy the high-quality sound that you usually get.
Are they comfortable to wear ?
Apple Earpods with Remote and Mic have a hybrid design and are made of hard plastic that is curved to fit the cleft of your ears. The fit is far better than the in-ear headphones. The fit of these ear pods is less invasive compared with the isolating earphones. The natural shape of your ears is used to fit the earpieces. However, if you fiddle too much with these accessories, there will be some discomfort in your ears.
Are they noise isolating ?
Apple Earpods with Remote and Mic are not noise isolating earphones. However, the design of these ear pods ensures that the sound leakage is reduced to an extent. This is because the design allows the sound to get directed towards your ear canals. Because these are not noise isolating earphones, you will not like to use them in areas where there is a lot of external noise.
Conclusion: Should I buy them ?
The Apple earpods with remote and mic compatibility is with Apple products – plain and simple. If you have used Apple earphones earlier, the change in design and improved sound quality will pleasantly surprise you. For USD29, you couldn’t get a better product.
