I own these Apple ear phones: The original ones. Lasted me from 2003 (or so) all the way to 2014 when a few weeks ago one of the ear pod parts just fell apart. I only used them when I went out. At home I have some open cans I like a lot. But I don't take those out. My question is are the new Apple ear phones any good? Are better than the old ones I have but are broken now? $40 from the Apple store online for me. I am looking for this style (shown above) of headphone as I don't really like the ones that go right into the inside of your ear as shown below here: Or should I get look into a different brand for roughly the same price. I'm just after something relatively cheap (around the $50 mark) that fit nicely into the ear (as I showed above in the 2nd "middle" set of headphones) to take with me when I go out places for use with my iPad. What do you all think?
