    Default Redesigned Headphones to Ship With Every Next-gen iPhone?


    Everyone has been uneasy about the next generation iPhone, expecting nothing other than a completely redesigned iPhone case with new hardware. Everyone may get that wish, but also a little more than he or she had in mind.

    So far we can expect to see a redesigned next generation iPhone and a redesigned 8-9 pin sync-cable, but a new video has surfaced today on the Vietnamese news site Tinhte.vn that appears to show a pair of redesigned Apple headphones. If these are the real deal, it is likely that they will be shipping with each next-generation iPhone unit instead of the headphones that we've gotten used to for over five years, which are both despised and enjoyed by many people everywhere.

    These redesigned headphones appear to have a much more closed case than the previous headphones and a strange forward-shooting design with holes in front apart from the small opening that would be placed into the ear for sound. The previous headphones were literally just an open circle speaker that was placed into the ear without any strange design. Below is a side-by-side comparison picture by the same Web site with the discovery, followed by Apple's signature that says "assembled in Vietnam" instead of the common 'assembled in China' that we see on most of Apple's products.




    Taking a moment to let the design of these headphones sink in, they look too good to be any mock-up. The machined build quality of the plastic and rubber, the color and font of the label on the wire, and what appears to be a perfect color match of the plastic all add up to show what appears to be a legitimate design by Apple.

    Apple’s headphones definitely have a record of below-par sound quality compared to some popular aftermarket headphones, however it’s likely that this rumored redesign will not only look different, but also perform different. Apple currently offers two kinds of headphones – the normal kind you get with every iOS device and a higher quality in-ear version. Perhaps this redesign helps combine the two to bring the best of both worlds.

    With Apple having such a large footprint in the music industry with iTunes, it would only make sense for them to invest a little research in better sound quality for their top-of-the-line products, right? Check out the full video by Tinhte.vn below:

    Me too, make sense. Totally redesigned iPhone, new dock connector, new headphone jack placement, why not new headphones. Nice.

    Maybe now the stock Apple headphones will do more than gather dust.

    Ever stop and wonder why people are so into headphones these days?(Skullcandy, beats, etc.) Its because iPods are so popular. And while they are extremely popular, they come incomplete and everyone knows it. Apples headphones are easily surpassed in sound quality and durability by almost any 'ol pair of $20 earbuds.

    It's about time they wizened up and stopped printing money for their competitors. If true, this is a good move. Long overdue, but still. A good move.

    I love the stock headphones. But they break easily, and I'm too dirty of a boy to have white headphones, they get dirty fast.

    Am I the only one who loves the apple ear buds? I really hate the in-ear ones because it transfer any noise from the cables and my own breathing! Plus, I've found the ear buds sound better then other buds on the market. Nothing beats the in-ear sound but I don't like the feeling of plugged ears all the time.

    I wanted to see him try putting them into his ears, I don't quite get how they fit/feel. I guess we'll have to wait and see

    If they don't occlude the ear canal they are not going to have very good bass. Why not just include the in ear phones that they sell for $79 dollars. Can't cost apple more then 10 bucks a set to mass produce those and they sound a way better then the ones they have now. The Galaxy 3 comes with headphones that are the equivalent to the 79 dollar ones Apples sells and they sound pretty damn good. If they can do it, why not Apple.
