Apples or Pears?
on 30 December 2014
I'm not sure if to give this a two star or three. It seems below average but not hugely so. I'd like to give it two and a half but I opted for a two here. I bought the EarPods to use with my iPad Air tablet. The pros are they seem to be made quite well. The sound level can be adjusted on them also. They were not expensive.
The main con for me is that i have small ear openings and the pods are too big to fit comfortable in my ears. They are quite painful. I think they are made for more men then women. Also, though i have very sensitive hearing, the volume level seems limited and i cannot hear properly through them as they do not go up loud enough. Also the two earpods are joined together with a little connector, but it's opened on one side so they constantly slip apart and don't stay together. It is a annoying and seems like a manufacturing fault. It does cheapen their feel abit it also. Over all I am disappointed. I expected Apple to make better products than this. I have only had them a short while so I cannot comment on longetivity of the product. I think there maybe better products available as well as worse ones too.
