Unlike traditional, circular earbuds, the design of the EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear. This makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphone. The speakers inside EarPods have been engineered to minimize sound loss and maximize sound output. So you get high-quality audio that's just as impressive as what you'd hear from more expensive headphones. The audio quality is so superior; they rival high-end headphones And you can use the improved remote to adjust volume, control music and video playback and answer or end calls on your Phone.
