Unlike traditional, circular earbuds, the design of the Apple EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear. This makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphone.
The speakers inside Apple EarPods have been engineered to minimize sound loss and maximize sound output. So you get high-quality audio that's just as impressive as what you'd hear from more expensive headphones.
The Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic are designed to rest comfortably inside and stay inside a variety of ear types. The audio quality is so superior; they rival high-end headphones that cost hundreds of dollars more. And you can use the improved remote to adjust volume, control music and video playback and answer or end calls on your iPhone.
