hey guys, are the iphone 4S earbuds the same as the iphone 4 Earbuds or they are different?
They've been the same since the iPhone 3G/3Gs.
you are wrong, the iphone 3g ear buds had a different microphone
Reading my post you'll see I included a slash between the 3G and 3Gs. This signifies that I am currently uncertain of the exact time the newer version was released. Furthermore, some iPhone 3G's where sold with the newer version.
i noticed on the iphone 4s earbud that they added a small rubber reinforcment i guess below the part where the mic starts. so whats with that?
umm, they decided that area needed reinforcement. does it really matter?
i want to know if its a better headphone, thats all.
In terms of sound quality, there's no difference. Apart from the minute visual difference that you made, there's nothing new.
Sound quality from these iPhone headphones have been the same for me since the iPod mini...which I consider decent.
It's all in what you're used to. Any brand of high quality ear buds are far better than the included pair. The Apple ear buds are sub par at best when compared to other OEM ear buds. They're also quite uncomfortable if you're used to ear buds that fit properly. Spending the money for a good mid price range set will make a huge difference in your enjoyment.
Agreed, they are definitely better than a lot of other "cheapie" headphones. Definitely not good quality, but decent enough for a lot of people.
you can buy many headphones far superior for a reasonable price. Skull Candy, Meelec, Shure, Sony too name a few. I'm talking in the $20 range but even around $10. personally I can't stand Apple's headphones. it depend on your ears and your listening range. and how much music you plan to listen too. if it's allot then look at a-jays 4 $70 Kilipsh S4I about $100 btw ebay has a ton of cheap knock off's on these. (stay away) you won't be sorry. also stay away from from Dr. Dre overpriced overrated. http://www.head-fi.org/ has great reviews by users.
Love head-fi. I got my Westone UM3Xs from a user there for an awesome price. Great place for reviews too.
Picked up a Skullcandy earphone when they went on sale. Pretty impressed with the quality.
The Apple ear buds are a embarrassment to Apple engineering.......
Wow!...Thought this forum would clober me for that statement....

I read a while back that they hired a guy or had a job req for someone to improve their headphones. Maybe we'll see something new for iPhone 5. I'd rather stick with my phenomenal Klipsche S4i ear buds regardless though.
