Introduction

If you've purchased an iPhone 5, you've no doubt spied those little white things where your earbuds should be. Given their predecessors' terrible performance, can you really expect the Apple EarPods to do the trick as a headset? Well, apparently you can. With impressive measurables, Apple seems to have made their ubiquitous crappy headphones into a respectable option for portable audio. They're still tough for many to get a good fit, however, and if you had problems with the earlier versions, you will definitely have the same troubles here.
