Apple (AAPL) still isn’t done yet! While winding up its fall press event, the company also showed off its new EarPods, the newest generation of Apple headphones. Apple said that the new headphones were designed for the “geometry of your ear” but added that they “don’t create a seal the way other in-ear headphones do.” The headphones feature three different ports — one on the inside leading directly to the ear, one on the outside and one on the stem — that Apple says have been designed to maximize sound quality. The EarPods will be included with the new iPod touch, the new iPod nano and with the new iPhone 5 and users can buy them standalone immediately.
