Images of Apple's redesigned Earbuds have been released by Vietnamese site Tinhte, along with a video preview making claims that the unibody style headphones will be released with iPhone 5 — which is expected to be announced later this month.
The current iOS headset that has drawn many complaints for its poor in-ear fit — has remained relatively unchanged since the iPhone first launched in 2007 with the exception of updating on the in-line remote control.
It's not yet clear if this new Earbud design will ship with iPhone 5 or be offered as an accessory item. Either way, Apple is long overdue for making improvements to their signature iPhone headset.
Additional photos posted on the Vietnamese website show a close-up of the words “Designed in California, Made in Viet Nam” printed onto the cable to confirm authenticity. What do you think of this alleged redesign?
