The i.am+ EPs, as they are called, are a pair of single cord in-ear earphones that run behind your neck like the Jaybird X2 or the Plantronics Backbeat. But while these two are designed to be used during workouts, the EPs are meant for casual listening, as they don’t have a secure fit design or sweat resistance.
What you get instead is a spun metal finish on the back of each speaker that resembles vinyls. A remote control on the left side lets you control your music playback and the microphone lets you make calls or talk to Siri. The earphones themselves don’t seal your ears but rather sit inside like Apple’s own EarPods.
The EPs come in limited edition box set with lifestyle booklet custom-made by will.i.am, and also features his voice when you turn them or connect to Bluetooth.
