“Apple’s newly redesigned headphones, the EarPods, have been taken apart to reveal a more durable design that is more resistant to water and sweat damage,” AppleInsider reports.

“The teardown of Apple’s new EarPods was published on Tuesday by iFixit,” AppleInsider reports. “In their teardown, the repair website found that Apple ‘had durability in mind’ when the company designed the new EarPods. In particular, the redesigned controls include larger cable wrapping on both ends to reduce strain on the wires.”

AppleInsider reports, “The EarPods are also said to be more resistant to water and sweat damage. This was accomplished by removing the external microphone grate Apple employed on its previous earbuds.”
