Summary: These in-ear buds come with apple products. Everyone uses them. Not much to explain, really. They are not very high quality and hurt my ear after wearing for a few minutes. Only pro besides that they are free is that I have them when my other IEM or earbuds break
Summary: I don't know whether it's a conspiracy or a joke, but Apple's talk of these being good quality just makes them seem like hilarious liars who could sell ice to eskimos. If their intent is to drive aftermarket sales, then they've managed it. As far as I can tell these things literally don't play bass.
