Apple's new EarPods come included with all of Apple's new iPhones and iPods and will also be offered as a separate accessory for $29.

I'm David Carnoy executive editor for cnet.com. And -- with the new Apple ear pods. These and view -- ear headphones that come with the new iPhone 5 as well as the next generation iPod Touch products and iPod nano. And these are the new de facto. Standard Apple white ear buds that Apple -- -- spent three years developing these new earphones. And they certainly sound a lot better than what they had before he simply have a lot more base they have a pretty clean sound and I I didn't like their sound their pleasant. They are not designed to seal inside -- that really designed to rest inside your ears. This is really an excellent free. Your phone for those who get it with their product it's a little hard to judge -- -- separate standalone product over because Apple -- that as the 29 dollar accessory. The -- -- these guys is that while they feel pretty comfortable -- years for some people they may not fit terribly securely in my case they just didn't fit that securely. If I -- little bit too much on they would actually fall out I wouldn't do anything active in these earphones. This model does have an inline remote with a Mike in it you can activate -- by simply pressing the middle but you can also. -- and and calls that way and you can raise and lower volume as well as pause and skip tracks forward and back using that in -- -- Does come with an excellent carrying case I'm not sure everyone would use that can case because you have to wrap it around and put it in acting case -- cutting -- but this model is it when they do you go when you hear that you have too little speakers and he said this of these events. On the -- themselves. And that sound does provide a bigger base they do have played a database for the small. -- -- style headphone. The other small detail what Beijing is that like Apple's previous -- but these -- heavy vary Nero. Jack on and that means that -- even with thicker iPhone cases where it's hard to get a thicker Jack into the -- port of these will actually fit into those cases. As he still -- -- a little bit harder -- people because there are other thirty dollar ear phones that use sound about as good as these. -- so it's really a choice of what he -- an Apple branded product. -- these and this particular style product. This does not seal out -- from -- do you get some leakage. As this is a little bit different style here but it really is designed to fit a little bit more loosely in your ear so if you like that kind of -- This is a good -- again I'm David Carnoy and those of the Apple your -- thanks for watching.
