Apple introduces new EarPods headphones coming with the iPod Nano, iPod Touch and iPhone 5


Although they managed to leak out ahead of the iPhone 5 event, Apple has now introduced a new set of earbud headphones for iOS devices. EarPods, as they will be reffered to will come with all of Apple's new products such as the iPod Nano, iPod Touch and iPhone 5 as well, be available as a stand alone accessory.

As we all know, there has been many complaints about the included earbud headphones for a while now and as noted during the keynote, Apple has been working on these EarPods for the past three years now. The new EarPods will be made available for purchase starting, today.

I personally like the new design and think that they will be a hit. As for iphone headphones sucking i dont know what you guys are talking about i prefer them over a lot of in ear headphones. If i realy wanted to listen to music a movie etc i get my over-the-ear to get the job done...
