Today, Apple announced the latest version of the Apple Earbuds. The EarPods have been 3 years in the making, and look very much like the ones that were leaked a couple of weeks ago.

The EarPods are design to direct sound into the ear. They will start shipping today as a standalone product. They will also come packaged with the iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5G and the new iPod Nano.

Apple have also uploaded a video showing off the EarPods:
