Why have the headphones that come with the iPhone within the last year lost their sound quality?

Doesn anybody know why all the replacement headphones and headphones that come standard with the iPhone and iPod lost their quality?  I broke my headphones I got with my iPhone two years ago and I went in to get a replacement pair.  All the ones (standard iPhone headphones) I tried have no bass anymore.  I let the store person hear the difference and he agreed.  A friend of mine bought an iTouch recently and I listened to the ones that came with his iTouch and they are just as bad (he doesn't know the difference because he never heard the older pairs).  Why has the quality dropped on the new issuing headphones? I am so disappointed because I was happy with the quality of sound coming from the original pair, but they are no longer making them...WHAT HAPPENED???  New manufacturer?  Or is this a way to get people to have to buy after-market products?

Why would Apple care if you bought after-market headphones? They don't make them. Unless maybe the manufacturers of those headphones bribe Apple...

  • Why Apple deleted the new iPad (refer A1416 )  supposedly  "the  iPad 3" that Many people we bought before june last year Of their web site

    Why Apple deleted the new iPad (refer A1416 )  supposedly  "the  iPad 3" that Many people we bought before june last year Of their web site. I say this because the Apple store sold me the new Apple in this moment, but really two months after arrive other model with better things, retina, HD, etc

    There is no "unfair trade" in releasing the next version soon after the last version. No "unfair trade" in releasing the new version the day after the last version. No one made any statement or guarantee that a new version would be a year away. Yes, most people who bought the "iPad 3" expected it would be a year before another release and, yes, some (or many) were not happy about the iPad 4 coming out so soon. There may have been some trust or love lost beween those consumers and Apple but there is nothing illegal or improper about it.

  • Does the warranty cover the headphones that comes with it ?

    so does it ? Because mine just sound REALLY, REALLY bad when its at full blast and me loving loud music (rock), i always put it at near full blast. so do you guys think i can return headphones and get a replacement ? its only been less than a month.

    Yes, they are covered under warranty but you ARE gonna damage your ears at full blast.

  • I can't sign in with the YouTube app that comes with my iPhone?

    For some reason I can't sign into YouTube using the preinstalled app on my iPhone 4. I can sign in okay with Safari. Any ideas. I've tried the 2 step verification setup with Google but either I'm not signing in with the special password correctly or it's not working.

    Try  linking my youtube acct to your gmail. I log in now with my gmail user name and gmail password,

  • Firefox will not open web pages that are called from the mail program that comes with Vista, anyone out there have a solution?

    I have installed Firefox ver 4 on a Toshiba laptop running Vista. My problem is when using the mail client that comes with Vista any url in an email message will not load in the browser, a new tab is created and has the url from the mail message but that is as far as I get. There is no revolving icon on the new tab and clicking on reload does nothing. So far this is happening with every website I have tried. There is no error message of any kind. The websites are working sites and can be opened if I navigate to them manually

  • I purchased Photoshop CC but I already have Lightroom 5.1 installed. Do I need to re-install the Lightroom download that comes with the purchase of Photoshop CC?

    I have purchased Photoshop CC that comes with Lightroom 5. I already have Lightroom 5.1 installed and wondering do I need to install the Lightroom that comes with Photoshop CC 2014?  Thanks

    As  you bought the CC plan of Photoshop plus Lightroom, you should uninstall your standalone copy of Lr as it may interfere with the correct working of the CC version, and install the CC version.
    I don't think that's true at the moment; the CC version of LR5 is identical to the stand-alone version, and it will interwork with Photoshop in the same way.
    However, when LR6 is released then that comes free with CC but not with the stand-alone version.  So you might want to follow johnhawk666's advice when LR6 is released, if you haven't done it by then, or you won't get the upgrade to LR6.
    By the way, uninstalling your existing LR5, then installing the CC version (via the CC app) shouldn't alter anything - your settings, catalog etc should be picked up by the new installation.  However, a wise person would back everything up first anyway, just in case!

  • I have the version of iPhoto that comes with my OS when I purchased my MacBook, but now I can't open it, because it says this, "You can't open the application "iPhoto" because it may be damaged or incomplete. Please help I have tons of family photos.

    1 - the iPhoto application is an application and does not hole your photos - your photos are in the iPhoto library an dour normal daily backup will back them up so your photos are safe
    2 - what exactly does the error message say? You probably need to reinstall the iPhoto application form the original source
    3 - note that no version of iPhoto comes with any OS - iPhoto comes with all new Macs but not with any OS and most OS versions can run many different versions of iPhoto

  • I keep getting "undelivered mail returned to sender" that comes with an attachment. I have not opened the attachment but the email returned is usually from people that i have not emailed in a long time.

    I keep getting "undelivered mail returned to sender" that comes with an attachment. i do not open the attachment but i get email returned from people that i have not emailed in years. I also have current people that tell me they receive email from me and there is nothing on the email and it is a repetative thing for them and for me. I have scanned my computer and it keeps telling me there are no viruses but i keep getting these emails. can anyone help me please!

    Someone is probably sending spam with your address forged on the To: line.  Could be one of your old contacts with a Windows machine has a virus that's doing it.  It's also possible your e-mail account has been hacked, though I'd think such a hacker would be a bit more purposeful.

  • I have an Imac using the old Classic operating system.  The printer I was using died and I need a new printer that will work on the OS 9.1/9.2 operating system.  Does the install disk that comes with the printer allow the computer to communicate with the

    My printer died and I need a printer that is compatable with OS 9.1/9.2.  Some printers say they are compatible with OS 9.1/9.2 but do they need a driver or is it included with the install disk that comes with the printer?

    As long as the printer is accurately described as being compatible with OS 9.1/9.2, if it needs to have software (such as drivers) installed that software should either be included (usual) or downloadable from the net(usually from the manufacyrer's website).
    Not all non-Apple printers need drivers installed. Some, such as many Postscript ones that connect via ethernet, are quite comfortable using the LaserWriter 8 printware that's part of OS 9. Some of those, though, may need to have a model-specific PPD (Postscript Printer Description) installed, a small document that informs the printware of the capabilities of the printer.

    how do i print the bonus books that come with some albums i purchased?

    I have a Mac so I tried this. I opened the booklet outside of iTunes and the app that opened it, has a print option.
    These digital booklets are simply PDF files and Adobe makes an app that can open them and print them and it is free to use.

    What DVDs are this ?
    If it is OSX Snow Leopard Installation DVD then yes this disc contains the BootCamp Drivers version 3.x and is needed after the installation of Windows to install the BootCamp Drivers.
    With OSX Lion BootCamp is at version 4.x and the BootCamp Drivers have to be downloaded during use of the BootCamp Assistant in OSX.
