How can you tell? I got a pair from dailysteals a couple weeks back for $17 and it looks, quality and sounds identical to my Apple's store bought ($30 pls tax). The only extra thing from Apple is a nice carton box (both plastic casings are the same). This lead to believe that earpods is not exclusively made for Apple but from some OEM factory.

Highly unlikely. Apple runs too tight a ship for that to happen.
However, it is quite likely someone stole the blueprints and another Chinese manufacturer down the street is mass producing with the exact same parts. Which would explain why many of these fauxpods sound the same but also many are reporting high failure rates.
