Headphones, Earphones, Earbuds, or Earpods? What do you call them?

One of the things we've realized since bringing our braided buds to the masses is that different people call them different things - headphones, earphones, earbuds, ear phones, earpods, etc. Given the variety of options, we were interested to see what the most common was, and here's what we found courtesy of Google Trends.

Headphones was the top reference, followed by earphones, then earbuds; while Apple's "earpods" don't seem to have caught on as a ubiquitous term yet. What do you call them?


Another interesting find - it varies from region to region. In the US and UK, headphones is the most popular terminology, earphones is more common in Southeast Asia, and ear phones (two words with a space) is more common in India for those Ravi Shankar fans. Interesting stuff. Whatever your preference - happy listening!
