They have volume control and an in-line microphone. They come in all white color. Apart from this, the design has some drawbacks. The connector of the EarPods isn’t really strong and is prone to damage which means using them a lot can result in the damaged wire. The EarPods may stop working after this.

SOUND QUALITY

VERDICT
The Apple EarPods are classical and stylish-looking earphones. They are very comfortable to wear. If your main goal is to get earphones that are comfortable to wear, and feature a good quality mic, then these are perfect for you.
