Apple In-Ear Headphones

  • Conclusion: Apple's In-Ear Headphones feature extras like a built-in remote and mic, but they're a bit overpriced given the audio quality you get.
  • Pros: Secure fit. Built-in mic and remote control. Works with latest-generation iPod's Voice Memos feature.
  • Cons: Audio output is decent—but could be stronger for the price. Short on bass response. Volume controls don't work with iPhones.

What Hi-Fi?

  • Excerpt: If Apple's iPods have an Achilles Heel, it's the headphones that come with each player. We've always suggested you upgrade to get the most from its machines. Apple does have a pricier in-ear option, but are they up to scratch? These buds feature an in-line remote control and mic, which is compatible with the Apple iPod Touch (2nd gen), nano (4th gen) and new, 3rd gen iPod Shuffle. To their credit, these headphones feel comfortable and fit securely.
  • Pros: Comfortable, secure fit
  • Cons: Poorly defined bass, lack of focus

These in-ear headphones retain the style of the standard Apple ear-buds, but produce far better sound and have extra functionality.

  • Conclusion: Apple includes a one-year warranty against defects for each pair of headphones, which isn't quite as generous as the two-year warranty offered by manufacturers such as Shure, but fairly standard for products in this price range.
  • Pros: All-white design will show wear over time, iPhone users can't take advantage of the headphone's in-line volume control, Owners of older iPods have no use for the remote and microphone
  • Cons: Great sound, Stylish design, Comfortable ear tips, One-year warranty, Spare set of mesh caps, In-line microphone with an iPod remote control
