Apple ships iPods with EarPods sans mic

When Apple raised the curtains on the iPhone 5, apart from the redesigned dock connector known as Lightning, the brand also took the opportunity to showcase

When Apple raised the curtains on the iPhone 5, apart from the redesigned dock connector known as Lightning, the brand also took the opportunity to showcase its new line up of earphones, which they have dubbed EarPods. A neat feature of these EarPods is that they are ergonomically designed and many Apple users had voiced their opinion in various forums claiming that the previous earphones were in desperate need of an upgrade. While Apple changed the design of the earphones, they also added a mic to it so that it can be used for hands free calling or for making calls over FaceTime. However, it now appears that the EarPod with mic will come only with the iPhone and not the recently announced iPods.As per a report by CNET, the author David Carnoy states, “iPod Touch buyers should also note that while Apple has included its new EarPods, they're missing a small but important feature -- the inline remote with integrated microphone found on the iPhone 5's EarPods. The same mic-less EarPods also ship with the new iPod Nano. Oh, and these step-down EarPods don't come with a carrying case. In all other respects, including sound quality, the two EarPod versions are the same. “
