So I have had the Ear Pods(ePods) for two days now and here are my impressions. The cord is slightly longer than the old headphones that came with the iPhone and the inline controls are slightly higher up on the cord. The packaging is very nice however getting ePods back into their case proves to be a bit of a chore. Next let me say that I'm not an audiophile, I've been using the normal headphones for the iPhone for a few years and my primary complaint was that they wouldn't stay in my ears. That being said, the ePods do sound quite a lot better though they still fall out of my ears occasionally. I've started stuffing my ears with Kleenex behind the ePods to wedge them more throughly in my ears and weirdly enough not only does this prevent them from falling out of my ears but it makes the audio noticeably awesome. I'm thinking of either returning them in a few days or buying some suguru to modify them more permanently so they stay put. All in all a very mixed experience so far. If audio is all your after then I'd say buy them as the quality is markedly better than the headphones that came with previous versions of the iPhone, however if you have had problems keeping ear-buds from falling out of your ears then the ePods are not the solution.
