    Vietnamese site Tinhte.vn has posted a video of what it claims to be redesigned headphones for the new iPhone which is expected in September.


    Update: Video was replaced. This one has no audio. ​
    The video shows the new headphones and compares them to the old headphones provided on the iPhone 4S. A translation of the video is provided below:
    The site claims that the new headphones are manufactured in Vietnam which are also written on the cables themselves. According to Tinhte, the new headphones are being manufactured in a Foxconn plant in Vietnam.

    Though we can't vouch for the authenticity of the video, Tinhte.vn has been able to get a hold of pre-release and protoype Apple devices in the past.

    In a blog post, Tinhte seems convinced the headphones represent an authentic Apple part:

    Apple is widely expected to announced the next generation iPhone on September 12th.

    Whoa! Those look pretty cool... but also weird at the same time. How do you even put them in?!

    Interesting.. though nothing beats in-ear for quality.

    They look extremely uncomfortable, doesn't look Apple-like one bit.

    Over the ear headphones would beg to differ.

    Agreed...

    Soo.. do we have enough parts to build our own iphone yet? All these leaks should get together and mail all their parts to gizmodo to put the phone together and see if it boots. haha

    Can't wait to see the new iPhone in one piece, I'm tired of little part leaks. :)

    HA! Beats and quality don't belong in the same sentence.

    I find them poorly constructed for how much they cost.

    Spikes!

    The spikes have been redesigned to be more painful? Less painful? Either way, probably not very good sound quality.

    The headphones look nice, but I am getting so tired of these part leaks... I miss the times when I could be completely surprised during an Apple keynote.

    Until Apple tells us otherwise, it's a logical name to use that makes it easy to identify the subject as well as turn up in the average google search on the subject.

    Reread his statement. I first I thought he was talking about Beats audio too, but he's using the word "beats" as in "defeats", not the over-priced earbuds/headphones.

    I have real hassle with in ear phones falling out of my ear if the buds are not right, it looks like this is what will happen with these. These look really weird, what is with the bit on the side? I am guessing these are bluetooth?

    Thought these were Cookie Monster eyes at first glance! Anyway, what's with the openings on the side of the earbuds? (You have to watch the video to see this--you can't see them in the picture, only the front opening which I assume is the actual "loudspeaker" part.)

    In 5 months Samsung's earbuds will look exactly the same.

    Hahaha, while I agree, I don't think the post you quoted was referring to Dre Beats.

    They have a jack, so no Bluetooth.
