Are the 6s's earbuds a new model? They're terrible.

    Are the earbuds/headphones that come with the 6s the same as what Apple's had for the past few years? I was shocked at how much worse the sound quality is compared to the old style ones I had been using. I know they're not the best, but the previous model sounds so much less tin-canny than the new earbuds.

    They only fit me if I reverse them

    Right into left ear

    Left into right ear

    Then they don't fall out

    It's crazy I was so excited when they video came out for the debut of them, then again I honestly thought they weren't hard plastic at the time

    Apple's earphones have always been terrible, so that is no news.

    ^ disagreed....the earpods aren't half bad. They won't win awards vs. legit IEM but they fit/sound good for included hardware.

    I noticed that the new 6s earpods do seem to fit slightly different. Might just be placebo effect, I don't know.

    Seriously? And even the mic, too? When making calls with the earbuds, I was told I sounded worse with the new than with the old ones.
    Yes, that's not news, but the fact that an Apple product saw a decline in quality should be.

    decline in your opinion. I feel they are better than the last ones.

    The older model definitely did not fit my ears (small ear canal).
    These are slightly better but not a great fit. If I twist and manipulate them, at least, they'll go in a bit.
    They usually don't stay in but better than the previous model which didn't go in at all.
    Perhaps, they'll stay in better with a head band over them :0
