You know whats more annoying?
Having to carry around this stupid little electric lighter that charges your tiny little earpieces every 5 hours.
That's ****ing stupid.
You should never listen to music via headphones for 5 hours straight and should be taking breaks while listening, leaving you plenty of time to charge it.
if you're in a situation where you'll be using it for 5 hours or more away from your house then you most likely will have an easy way to store and charge it (car, backpack, etc)
Case allows a 24-hour charge to be stored and a little 15 minutes of charging gives you 3 hours of use.
You also have Siri access with these, granting you the ability to use GPS features such as asking where a place is or requesting directions, making phone calls, picking what song to play, changing volume, etc, all while leaving your phone in your pocket.
Also Crono, you realize the headphones come with the phone right? It's not like people have to buy them separately.
