    Do you want health sensors in your Apple EarPods headphones?
    How would you feel about Apple putting health sensors into their next-generation EarPods headphones? There are a ton of health-related rumors swirling around iOS 8 and Healthbook, the iPhone 6 and even the still-mythical iWatch, and forward deploying sensors into wearable electronics, including headphones, is clearly the future. But is it the imminent future? Would you want it to be?

    I'd rather them make EarPods that fit my ears! They do not stay in snug and just fall out. They're useless for me, except to snap photos with.

    They can do whatever they want to them. I'm not a huge fan of their sound quality so I never bother to use the EarPods

    First Apple needs to make earbuds that are attached to a band. Behind the ear or over the head earbuds.

    It would be great, as long as they fit and feel comfy

    It'd be a cool feature but I'd need them to be more comfortable before I could use them regularly

    No. I would not want Apple to place health sensors in the EarPods.

    No...and that's based solely on the fact that I don't use the Apple supplied ones. Need to be redesigned, IMO.

    It's interesting, but for me I have no need for it.
