Redesigned Apple iPhone 5 earphones show horse head-like appearance

Redesigned Apple iPhone 5 earphones show horse head-like appearance
You would have to be living on a far away island with no radio, television, internet, newspaper or telephone not to know that the 6th generation of the Apple iPhone is expected to be unveiled on September 12th. We've also seen a number of mock-ups of the phone, put together by assembling leaked parts. One video that was released on Saturday purportedly revealed the real Apple iPhone 5 until it was discovered that the model number and FCC ID number on the back both belonged to the Apple iPhone 3GS.

Still. we now have a pretty good idea of what to expect on the 12th of this month when Tim Cook shows off the new design of Apple's smartphone with a larger screen, a faster processor, a smaller dock connector and a new location for the earphone jack. And actually, it is the latter that we want to discuss. A video on a Vietnamese site claims to show the redesigned earphones that will come in the box with the redesigned phone. The wire on the new earphones say that they were designed by Apple in California and assembled in Vietnam. The site goes on to say that the earphones look like they won't come apart like earbuds and that they resemble horse heads.



Vietnam has seen some legit Apple iPhone leaks in recent years, so while we would advise you to take these leaks with the proverbial leaks with a grain of salt until the phone is introduced, there could be a reason to believe that the earphones for the Apple iPhone 5 will look exactly like what you see in the video.

Looks Ugly...Horrible..Disappointing. Keep the old headphones damn it Or make them with Flat Cables so they dont tangle so frequently. Like the BEATS Earphones

I hate the old headphones, they fall out of my ears. These look like they'll stay put. Anyway,,, shouldnt sound be more important? I mean, I don't necessarily wear headphones to make a fashion statement.

"Revolutionary" i see... Please apple, i didn't like your headphones before (because of comfort reasons) and I certainly don't like these (it doesn't look like apple's doing).

1) i don't like trolling, i was stating the truth... 2) those things are already molded versus apple's gel buds which are way comfier, knowing the previous headphones already being molded these would probably be unconfortable unless they had different sizes.

I heard you stick those damn things up your nose holes. Apple has patented it already.

How does it even look like a horse? It looks more like a pair of cat testicles, if anything.

APPLE VS BUDWIESER Anheiser bush banned in the US over Horse design. Budwieser claims they had Horses in their commercials before apple. When suddenly Apple shows exhibit A: a 200 page email showing how Budweiser wants to copy apple's headphones. shame on you Budwieser tsk tsk.

Just like how apple sheeps troll about how android suck, copycat and sh*t everytime there's something new about it. It's a never-ending cycle so get used to it, my friend. At least we, android fans are truthful about what we say about Apple; it sucks, and so this earphone.

Haha ,that's funny because I just said they make headlines. No judgments nor snide remarks made by me, won't you agree?

Ugh, who's gonna use those ugly POS? Maybe if people bought Android or WP, they'd have enough money left over to get some decent earphones like Audio-Technica or Sennheiser.
