Does the iPhone 5 come with new earbuds / EarPods?
Yes. Apple will ship the iPhone 5, iPod touch and iPod nano with completely redesigned earbud headphones, named EarPods. Not only do EarPods have 5 ports for air flow that improve bass, but they are hooked up to a microphone for calling and an audio remote control.
Apple has been shipping its mobile devices with included white earbud headphones since 2001. The company has engineered the EarPods to drastically improve sound quality and ergonomics. Made of white plastic, the EarPods are also designed to be more durable than older models.
EarPods will ship free with the iPhone 5, latest iPod touch and iPod nano. If you are interested in buying a pair of the new Apple earbuds, they are available for $29.
