Excerpt: I teach with videos. There are times that I am on the video also when I share my screen. Before I purchased the Apple Earpods, I used to wear a large headset to provide clear voiceovers for the video. I was not happy with the way I would appear on the video wearing that huge headset. After I used the Apple Earpods, I could see that I looked like a person that someone would normally talk to on the street.
Excerpt: The overall performance of the EarPods are great when using simultaneously with other Apple devices. Sounds quality is a huge step up form that of Apple's iPod/iPhone 4 earphones. The bass quality has greatly improved in this model. The mic and remote control feature are great pluses if taken advantage of. The improved "in ear" design makes loose fits and falling out slightly more difficult than usual.
Summary: I bought these Ear Pods for my grandson at his request He is fourteen years old. He loves these. He says they are perfect and the music sounds nice through them and he loves that he can control the volume.
