During the tail end of the Apple event yesterday announcing the iPhone5 there was also the unveiling of a new headphone design, bundled with the iPhone5 but also available separately.

The latest generation of Apple headphones are dubbed EarPods and were designed to rest comfortably inside, and stay inside, a variety of ear types. Apple say they tested “over a hundred prototype designs on hundreds of people” before settling on this new form.

Unlike traditional, circular earbuds, the design of the new Apple EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphone.

The speakers inside Apple EarPods have been engineered to minimize sound loss and maximize sound output. So you get high-quality audio that’s just as impressive as what you’d hear from more expensive headphones.

The new EarPods include the standard Apple remote with volume up/down, microphone,and a central button to answer/end calls and pause/play/skip music or video.

They’re available on the Apple Online store now for £25.00
