Remember: the iPhone has never been recalled.
I use the bose in-ear ones. Simply because they were the only ones that fit me well. I know I can get custom fit ones for much more money, but with all of nyc noise and such I can't be that picky. I don't consider bose "fancy" in the least. They are probably the highest end of the lowest tier of audio products.
I was going to point out the same thing. We are talking about independent reviews here. They don't really have a stake in this game other then getting these reviews out generate page views. If you think a negative review wouldn't do the same, you are kidding yourself. It would likely generate more. Think back to all the "antennagate" stories that got repeated over and over again.
EDIT: I'm mainly talking about tech sites with neutral coverage. Not your Macworld or Daring Fireballs of the world.
Where the hell is the iOS update? Can't wait to start playing with the new features.
It hits today. In a few hours.
What's fancy anyway? I guess I am not much of an audiophile but I can't tell much of a difference in $100 pair vs. a $300 or $400 pair. Certainly not enough to pay a couple hundred more.
I know. I was expecting to be able to load it already. What's the hold up!?!?!? Deep breaths.....
Regarding the new Earpods, reviews are saying they are much improved over the old stock pair. I wouldn't spend $29 on a 2nd pair based on the reviews, but that does not change the fact that they are now giving you a better pair for free with your iPhone/iPod purchase.
With all that goes into apple products they really skimp on audio quality across the board.
Do any handset makers include headphones with their phones one wouldn't want to replace immediately if they really care about audio quality? I know HTC has a Beats Audio partnership for some of their phones, but that's about all I can think of. Even then, I don't know if they are that good. Why single out Apple here?
Wait a couple months. I frequently purchased the old ones through amazon and ebay for $5-$10. I probably have a dozen pairs. Well worth it at that price IMO.
BTW, if Pio ends up loving his iPhone i'm going to request they change his custom title to "The Best Fanboi Yet."
I will take action if you do not stop trolling me. You have been warned.
Looks like iOS 6 has been released. Unfortunately the Apple servers are taking a beating and my phone is in a continuous search for updates. Will have to try again later.
