    I like the design better than the horrendous ones they currently use, but that's not saying much ;)

    I didn't see a microphone on the headphones in that video though, leading me to believe these are fake.

    They didn't really show the cord much, or at least the spot where the mic is located.

    It almost looks as if the big black bit on the side is a blacked out window rather than a hole (as I first thought when I looked at it). Possible sensor for the earbuds to tell when they are in your ear or not, pausing the music when they're not to conserve battery life?

    Those looks to be made of hard plastic. If that's the case, I can't imagine them being comfortable... at all.

    Don't know if these are real, but I'm betting the current headphones are going to be enhanced & different to some extent.

    I think drastically improved audio is going to be a big part of the new iPhone.

    The little black hole looks like an air hole, meaning they're kinda open backed headphones. Hopefully as the air port is small, they won't leak too much sound. and the new speaker port will be more focused.

    I do love the iPhone, but i absolutely hate having to listen to other people's music on the train! Such is life in London though...

    They look painful even before trying them!

    So they took a crappy set of headphones and made them crappier?

    It almost looks like Apple's old in-ear headphones.

    So, is that a sub-woofer built into the sides of those things?

    No, it's probably a bass port, it allows more air into the enclosure and allows the speakers to work harder, giving a deeper bass.

    I doubt it, seems like a lot of money to put sensors in these things to conserve what would be not a whole lot of power.

    In regards to the OP, hope these are the real deal, would be nice to get a bit of an upgrade with the iPhone 5.

    Are the new ones going to stop disintegrating after a few months of use?

    Looks like they are using the same materials. Really a shame.

    can't believe people use the stock buds. They are uncomfortable and have horrible SQ.

    You and me both! The official headphones are literally the worst earphones I've ever used...
