    Default New Apple Retail Store In-ear Headphone "Demo Kits" Pictured


    It was in the beginning of March that we reported on the upcoming Apple retail store in-ear headphone "Demo Kits" that Apple would be implementing inside of its stores so that customers would be able to test out various brands of in-ear headphones before they bought them.

    Japanese Web site Macotakara has reportedly snagged a photo of what these Demo Kits will look like in stores.

    The headphones, which are a mix of Beats-brand headphones, Jaybird-brand headphones, Bose-brand headphones, and RHA-brand headphones, give customers a good comparison between some of the leading in-ear headphone types right inside of Apple's retail stores. The headphones in this particular demo kit are (by order of price, cheapest to most expensive):

    • RHA MA450i ($49.95)
    • urBeats ($99.95)
    • Beats Tour ($149.95)
    • JayBird BlueBuds X ($169.95)
    • PowerBeats 2 Wireless ($199.95)
    • Bose QC20i ($299.95)


    Customers are given disposable in-ear pieces that the customers can then take with them, or throw away at the time of testing the in-ear headphones. This prevents the spread of ear infections through sharing in-ear headphones.

    If you were in the market of buying in-ear headphones for your iPhone, or other mobile device, is testing the headphones like this something you would want to do to ensure that you were buying a quality product despite the risks of bacteria and germs?

    The biggest obstacle to actually get the best sound is a perfect fitting ear piece. You can have the wrong size and the best in ear headphones will sound like crap. The best thing they could do is make sure they give a proper fitting piece. If they don't then it's not going to work well.
