Finally in July we see many photos of what could be a Lightning earpod headphone set from Apple. The photos show Apple Earpods with a Lightning connector. The Lightning connector looks oddly large, but it may be to keep the headphones from fraying like Lightning cables or it could be to house some kind of audio processing chip. Many more photos are shown on .
Like everyone else, I've tried about every style and brand of earphone out there, but none of them have ever had the sound of the Apple brand phones, or the in-ear fit of this particular earlier design, for me. I have never been able to comfortably use the latest "perfectly ear-shaped" Apple earphone, or keep them inserted while walking, running or working out. No such problem with these - comfortable fit, and they stay put. Needless to say, great sound!!
Unlike traditional, circular earbuds, the design of the Apple EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphone.
