  • Apple Earbuds: The original iPod earbuds were modified a little to add a volume controller and microphone. In 2007, these earbuds were paired with every iPhone that was sold. The  clarity of the sound was better when compared to the iPod earbuds, but the wires of the headphones tangled a lot!
  • Apple EarPods with Lightning Connector: Unlike the other circular iPod earbuds, they are sleek-looking, geometric travel cases which are made of rigid white plastic that sits in the cleft of the ear, just above the earlobe. Like the previous versions of the headphones, even Apple Earpods have the symbols “R” and “L” below their earpod shells. But, the left earpod shell is protruded towards the right, and the right earpod’s shell is protruded towards the left to give the better in-ear experience to the users. They create acoustics and deeper bass sounds.
  • Apple AirPods: The most expected product of the decade amongst the users is the Apple AirPod, undoubtedly! They make rich bass sounds, and the sound quality is incomparable. It is a lightweight device which makes it highly portable. Apple AirPods do not pair with any Android devices and have low battery life.



Are you a music lover or always indulged in calls? Then, an Apple headphone is the best gadget to accompany you! These Earpods go well with most of the iPhones such as iPhone 7, and iPhone 8. Even though it is expensive, its amazing design, long-lasting design, and inseparable in-ear experience attract the users towards it.
