    Nasty White EarPods

    I've read some expert reviews of the Earpods.Certainly an improvement over the old model, but by no means a game changer to the earbud market. For many reasons I don't see customers shifting from skul and others to the earpods in aftermarket sales. With the improved earpods, it will certainly increase the # of people who use them rather than throwing them away cuz they were just unusuable. But these people (like my parents) were never in the Skul audience to begin with. Skul offers fasion and quality and the earpods are not challenging this market. And certainly I don't envision the pods challenging the headphone market....totally different.

    Summary...minimal impact from the apple earpods. I see the Beats and others as a bigger threat to Skul.
