Descent and sleek Apple earpods are fine to listen to relaxing music. Let’s see whether you should go with Apple earpods just because of Apple's brand and affordable price or they really deserve to be in your bag.
In my opinion, if you are looking for something daily usable rough headphones with good durability even after drop downs then Apple earpods with lightning connectors are good for you. They are pretty comfortable because of unique and untraditional nozzles, but the hard plastic built-up may bother some people.
They offer quite well protection from water and sweat Hence can be wearable in the gym if fit in the ears properly. Soothing sound performer Apple earpods offer refreshing and clear sound quality. Remarkable call quality will make you happy but you will be disappointed with the bass. The happiest thing is they keep your pocket warm as the price is comparatively low.
How is the Design and Build Quality of EarPods?
I was searching for something sturdy and rough earphones at an affordable price. Keeping the finger cross, I got an Apple Earpods with a lightning connector that fulfills most of my needs. They fall down frequently but still work perfectly. The Apple lightning earpods looks a little different from the traditional earpods. 2.08 ounces of Apple lightning earpods are specially designed to fit in the ear comfortably.
Yes, they were pretty comfortable for me but may not be that comfortable for everyone because of the hard plastic built up. Though the IPX rating is not specified but they are good water and sweat resistant. So, you can wear them in the gym but again you have to push them frequently inside the ear canal to adjust them.
They have no extra tip to adjust the nozzles ear-wise. Either they will fit in or one has to go for something else. They look pretty well in all white. Plastic nozzles of the Earpods give aesthetic pleasure. In-built mic and remote make it handy to volume up-down or to receive and end the phone calls. Eventually, a good built-up and aesthetic look makes you happy but you will be disappointed if you want something stylish and a color variant.
How is the Sound Performance of EarPods?
I would not say that Apple Earpods with a lightning connector is a very good sound performer, but yes they offer a satisfying music experience while listening to free and open music. It can be in the office while doing any boring task or while regular office traveling. They do well for high as well as treble notes. They are good entertainers and offer soothing and deep music with clear sound for instruments in the song. But lack to perform extraordinarily. In short, they are soothing sound performers but not that incredible.
How is the Call quality of earpods?
I would like to recommend Apple lightning Earpods as they are really good in this department. In-built mic provides nice call quality while the remote of three buttons make it easy for calls as well as handling the media But again you will not fairly isolate yourself from outside noise because the tips don’t go deep inside the ears.
How is the Connectivity and Durability of earpods?
You can connect Apple Earpods with a lightning connector to your iPhone or iPod that should have iOS 10 or further. If you try to connect two headphones to an iPhone simultaneously, that is One with a 3.5mm jack while another with a lightning connector, then audio would be played by the last one you have connected.
Coming to the durability, my Apple Earpods with lightning connector goes for a minimum of 2 years without any trouble. As I said, they have rough and hard built-up so they won’t get damaged easily.
