Apple Launches New EarPods


It was a big week at the Apple headquarters as they’ve just released the new iPhone 5, drawing lines of fans and techies eager to get their hands on it. Also released on the same day was their new Apple EarPods ($29), a definite improvement from the Apple Earbuds.  Designed by Apple, the EarPods are “defined by the geometry of the ear”, has great protection from sweat and water, controls music and video playback, and improved bass sound. Three years in the making, the EarPods’ 124 prototypes were said to be tested on 600 people to make sure that it would fit snugly and comfortably on most ears, as well as to maximize each user’s listening experience.
