    My previous earbuds completely broke down, so I went ahead and got the new Apple Earpods seeing all the good reviews in Apple Store.
    For $30, what they have to offer is definitely amazing.
    People have been bashing about Apple for not making truly innovative products lately,
    well, I'd say at least these Earpods are noteworthy!
    So yeah, anybody hesitating if they should get one, GET ONE you wont regret it.

    Anyways I do have a minor question/discussion,
    is the case it comes in with supposedly a case thats designed to be taken with us for daily usage or did Apple just decide to use fancy packaging now rather than the plastic wraps?
    Cuz as much as it kinda looks cute, its not the most user-friendly case for a pair of earbuds.
    I just got them today and havent taken them out of the room yet, but I can just imagine how much I will not like it.
    What do you guys think? Are you using the case for the Earpods??

    I like them over and above the original ear buds.

    Are they better then my Shure's, no.

    Are there better ear phones that SEAL the ear for the same money, yes.

    Are there better outside the ear products like the earpods for the same money? No not really, but folks will debate that.

    No not using any case

    It's actually decent. I'm somewhat of an audiophile and normally prefer headphones, but for the $30 pricetag, the EarPods don't sound too bad. In terms of its case, I only use it when I know I won't be using the EarPods for more than an hour.
