Apple’s earbuds named “worst-sounding audio product”

Steve Guttenberg:

I suppose it’s a good thing that Apple includes any headphones at all, but for such a quality-oriented company, why have they, year after year, included those awful headphones? . . . Apple’s ear buds’ comfort isn’t great, and they easily fall out of my ears, or maybe my ears are pushing them out! Those opinions about their sound quality are based on the ‘buds that came with my one-year-old iPod Classic. I also have a pair of first-generation Apple ‘buds in my stash, and they are a lot worse!

The best part of owning Apple ear buds is that you can be sure that whatever you buy to replace them will sound a good deal better. . . .

    I always thought there must be something wrong with the shape of my ears. Surely Apple would not design a product that fits so poorly in ordinary ears. Wrong.
