Apple’s (AAPL) in-ear headphones have seen few changes since being introduced alongside the company’s original iPod in 2001. According to images published by Vietnamese site Tinhte.vn, however, Apple may introduce redesigned headphones with its next-generation iPhone. The site claims that the earphones were manufactured in Foxconn’s Vietnamese factory — the cable even includes the company’s iconic signature, “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in Vietnam” — and are convinced of their authenticity because of the superior build quality. The new earphones are said to be smaller and, when they are worn, do not hurt the ear. It should be noted that the headphones do not feature an in-line remote, however, so it is unlikely that they would ship with Apple’s new iPhone in this state. Apple is widely expected to announce its next-generation iPhone at a press event on September 12th. A video of the new earphones follows below.
