The Apple EarPod portable earphones have a non-isolating earbud design. These iPod/cellphone-centric earphones have a 44-inch audio cord with a modified stereo four-contact mini-plug that works with iPods, iPads, iPhones, and some cellphones, but it may not be compatible with other audio devices. The earphones have an inline microphone and inline remote with integrated volume, player function, and call connect/disconnect controls. The EarPod comes with a carrying case, and is covered by a 12-month warranty.
Plug typeThe type of connection at the end of the audio cord, which will be plugged into the source component. Most have 1/8-inch standard (3-contact) "mini" jacks that fit portable devices. Models intended for use with newer iPod, iPhone, and some Blackberry smartphones, that have integrated microphones, audio player controls, and call connect/disconnect controls use a 1/8-inch 4-conductor mini jack. The audio function of models with 4-conductor mini jacks may not work properly or consistently with non-iPod/iPhone devices.
