Doesn't sound as impressive at the alleged 16 iPhone XS but hey.... Since I bought my iPhone XS on 21st of September last year I resorted to replacing EarPods 4 times which makes me on my 5th pair for the moment. They would randomly change, start/stop songs, hang up on calls and etc which points at intermittent connection somewhere along the wire or connecter. I'm not a fussy user and normally don't complain stuff but it made it impossible to listen to music which I do a lot. The reason of me posting this in the first place is to get your thoughts on this. Is it deliberate that Apple makes EarPods of inferior quality to push people to buy airPods? I never had it so bad with mini jack EarPods with my previous phone. 5 pairs of headphones in 4 months is just unacceptable. I'm sure this won't the last time I have to replace them again. I know the obvious answer will be - get airPods and stop moaning - which I might do but it's not the point. Apple is using unfair tactics to push their products on people. #nogoodapple Any thoughts?
