Apple just introduced its latest line of earphones -- and Apple, being Apple, couldn't help but give them a clever new name: "EarPods."

"They look like no earphone you've ever seen before," said Jony Ive, senior VP of industrial design at Apple. "The shape of the EarPod is actually defined by the geometry of your ear, but they don't create a seal the way other in-ear headphones do," he stated, as reported by Engadget.

The company released information about many new products today, including details on the highly-anticipated iPhone 5, as well as upgrades to its line of iPods. The EarPods will automatically come with both of these new devices, or can be bought separately for $29.99.

TechCrunch reports on the technology behind Apple's new headphones:

A port in the back is aimed at delivering better mid-tones, and there’s one in the stem and the primary one for delivering sound to the inside of your ear. It’s all aimed at delivering the best sound possible.

As with Apple's last line of headphones, these Earpods will include a small remote and mic on the cord so that you're able talk on the phone hands-free or quickly adjust volume.
