Earpods are another line of earbuds developed and manufactured by Apple Inc. They were first introduced in 2012 as a successor to the original earbuds that came bundled with Apple’s portable devices, such as the iPhone and iPod.

Earpods are wired earbuds that feature a more ergonomic design compared to their predecessors, with a shape that is intended to fit more comfortably in the ear. They come with a remote control and microphone built into the cable, allowing users to control audio playback, adjust volume, and take calls without needing to remove the earbuds.

While Earpods are not wireless like AirPods, they are designed to work seamlessly with Apple devices that have a 3.5mm headphone jack, such as iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers. They provide a simple and convenient audio solution for users who prefer traditional wired earbuds.

Earpods have been praised for their improved sound quality, comfortable fit, and compatibility with a wide range of Apple devices. They continue to be included with certain Apple products or are available for purchase separately.
