Our favorite headphones for iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Mac

We often get asked what we're using, be it devices, apps, or accessories. Ever since Apple bought Beats, we've increasingly been asked what headphones we're using. Given that there are a number of secret headset shortcuts for controlling the iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Mac as well, that should come as no surprise.

So, we rounded up the staff here at iMore and enlisted several of our friends from Mobile Nations and put together this list of our headphone favorites!

Secret headphone shortcuts: Twelve clicks to control your iPhone, iPad, and Mac

The Apple EarPods that come with your iPhone or iPod touch can be used to control a wide range of features, including music, phone calls, and even Siri.

So can any other set of headphones, from Beats to Bose — as long as they integrate the remote and mic hardware. The remote controls are great for accessibility, but they're also great for convenience. What's more, they also work with the Mac!

If you're not familiar with all the options, here's a complete list!

Amazon Echo review

65

Amazon Echo review

Everything has to be smarter these days. Connected to something. Connected to everything. And these days we have to talk to those things.

Google brought us, well, Google Now. But excellent as it is, you're taking to a machine. Apple personified things with Siri. And now Amazon has Alexa in its Amazon Echo Bluetooth speaker. Why? Oh, why not. On one hand you've got a decent speaker that ties into Amazon music. And lets you make shopping lists for later. On Amazon, of course.

But really that's just the tip of the iceberg with Alex. And it's a bit of an odd product, not available for general purchase. You register your interest with Amazon, finally are given the opportunity to buy, and then wait a few weeks until it ships. Maybe available will expand, maybe it won't. It took about a month for ours to arrive, a few minutes to get it set up, and not much longer to see that this thing has some serious potential. The question is whether that potential leads to anything on down the road.

And if it does, the likes of Google and Apple are going to find themselves with even more of a competitor in Amazon.

How would you change Apple's Health app?

How would you change Apple's Health app?

Apple's Health app for iPhone debuted with iOS 8. Health provides a central place for all your medical, fitness, nutrition, sleep, and related information.

Categories include Diagnostics, Fitness, Lab Results, Me, Medication, Nutrition, Sleep, and Vital Signs. Data is presented in both graphs — which can be added to the dashboard view — and in separate sub-catagories. Once the information is collected, you can either keep it just for yourself, or you can choose to send it to other apps, or even share it with your medical professional via Apple's HealthKit framework. There's even a medical ID feature to help responders to find out vital information in case of emergency.

Privacy is a huge emphasis for Health, and you can control not only the data you collect, and not only which apps can access that data, but which apps can read it and which apps can write it. And if you don't give permission, an app — and any insurance or health organization behind it — doesn't even know it's there.

That's what Health is, but what do you want Health to be?

On Apple Watch pricing and strap swapping

There's a lot we don't know about Apple Watch. We don't know how much it will cost, beyond the $349 price tag Apple's hung on the entry-level Sport model. We don't know if any other straps will be made available, including gold links to match the gold Edition. We don't know if we'll be able to buy additional straps separately so we can take advantage of the stellar strap-swapping mechanism Apple has included in all the collections. We know the broad strokes, but we know few if any of the fine details.

Emotional terrorism and censorship

Emotional terrorism and censorship

Speaking up for yourself is hard enough. When others try to silence you through threats of violence and intimidation, what should be the appropriate response?

A game developer announced plans this week to withdraw from exhibiting at the upcoming PAX East game conference in Boston, Mass. Giant Spacekat cited death threats against the company's head of development as the reason for the decision. What's happening is nothing less than a mental health crisis in online communities.
