Does the iPhone 6 come with Beats headphones?

I suspect Apple would've made a big deal about this if it were the case! But does the iPhone 6 comes with Beats headphones? Is there anything Beats about the iPhone 6 at all?

Not to my knowledge. They ship with the earpods. Maybe the Beats crew had something to do with 'finetuning' the performance? But tbh, I doubt that. The acquisition happened fairly late in the iPhone 6 design phase. Has the sale even been finalised?

Even if there were, and Jan's right it's not even finalised before production started on the 6, what would be the benefit?

Unlike many, I have no problem with the iPhones' sound. The problem is that Apple's earphones - especially the pods do not offer much volume. They are not loud enough. Connect some good Sennheisers or Marleys or whatnot, and everything's okay.
Shame, as I find the earpods give a nice fit, and their sound is good. But they took the EU directive to the max.

that's a good point Jan, if/when the Beats takeover happens, are they likely to impose a cap on volume and bass to keep within that directive ?

Afraid so... would be a shame. I accept that some gizmo were way too loud in the past.
But iPhones with default cans are a joke imho.
