The Apple iPod nano is the real deal. I believe they are similar to the iPhone headphones, but they are definitely worth it. The pricing of the nano headphones are worth it. They don't break easily and it can last for years. In my opinion i believe the iPod and iPhone headphones are the best. You can also adjust the volume through the headphone instead of doing it on the phone. The speakers inside Apple Ear-pods 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 Apple Ear-pods with Remote and Mic also include a built-in remote that lets you adjust the volume, control the playback of music and video, and answer or end calls with a pinch of the cord. The remote and mic are supported by all models of iPod, iPhone, and iPad (not all models support volume up/down functions). Audio is supported by all iPod models. At some electronic store its cheaper and you can get it for half the price. These are the second best headphones in my opinion, Beats by dre are the number one headphones. The price range of these type of headphones are between 15-30 dollars. You might find it cheaper on somewhere like amazon. Dont be fool there are similar headphones to theses but are fake, you would be able to tell by the structure of it. If it feels like plastic those are fake.
After losing the originals that came with my iPhone, I really needed a replacement asap. The last thing I wanted was a fake, and supposing there are supposedly so many on Amazon: I wanted to ensure I was getting the real thing. I was on the verge of forking out the full £25 from Apple themselves (which is a complete rip off, they're good, but they're not that good) when I came across this product.
The reviews were the most positive I had seen, and thats what encouraged me to get them. They come in the package shown (something the fake one's supposedly don't), which was encouraging, and the music quality is very good. I have compared these one's the real thing (which I ended up finding) and they are identical in look, and sound quality; thus leading me to believe that this is real thing (thank god.) I personally have Spotify Premium, and therefore I have the extreme music quality function, and as I say, these earpods can deliver this quality; again this is one of the comparisons I made when comparing these to my old pair.
I have come across the fakes which cost next to nothing, and there is a distinct difference in the product (hopefully not just the placebo effect that because I paid considerably more that ive got the better/real product.) The fakes have poor music quality, and will break with just a tap.
The only slight suspicion I had was that the volume control was a little unresponsive, sometimes when trying to change the sound level it wouldn't register your click; I don't know whether over time I have got used to this, or whether its fixed itself. But otherwise, the only suspicion I could have is that it wasn't dispatched from Apple themselves.
Im convinced that they are the real thing, and if they're not, you're still getting your moneys worth!
