Rediscover your music.
Put on the Apple In-Ear Headphones, select your favorite track, and hear musical details you never knew existed. It's almost like you're experiencing your music for the first time.
Two drivers in each earpiece.
Each earpiece contains two separate high-performance drivers — a woofer and a tweeter — resulting in rich, detailed, and accurate sound reproduction and amazing bass response for all types of music.
Impressive sound isolation.
Choose from three sizes of soft, silicone ear tips for a comfortable, stable fit. When inserted in your ear, they create a seal that blocks outside noise so you can get the most from your music.
The control capsule located on the cable of the right earpiece includes a microphone and three buttons. Here's what you can do with this convenient remote*:
- Adjust volume by pressing the + and - buttons.
- Control music and video playback — including play/pause and next/previous — by pressing the centre button.
- Record voice memos on supported devices.
- Answer and end calls.
Steel mesh caps for protection.
Stainless steel mesh caps protect the precision acoustic components from dust and debris. You can remove the caps for cleaning or replace them with an extra set that's included in the box.

Excellent price for earphones with two drivers

The trick is to choose the correct ear tip to get a good seal in the ear. If the seal is poor, the bass will be reduced. With a good seal the sound and noise isolation is quite good. …

Pads drop out and are irreplaceable
This has great sounds BUT once you have lost one of the little silicone pads, you cannot buy a replacement (despite the efforts of This has great sounds BUT once you have lost one of the little silicone pads, you cannot buy a replacement (despite the efforts of a helpful guy at the on-line Apple Store). So for a few cents worth of silicone, you have to buy a new headset. Forget it and buy Sennheiser, which has excellent quality and offers replacement pads. …

no match to the earpods!
i bought these thinking since they are priced more than the earpods, they would be better. execept for the noise ioslation, nothin i bought these thinking since they are priced more than the earpods, they would be better. execept for the noise ioslation, nothing is better than the earpods.
they lack the deep bass of the earpods, they slip out of the ears, and they are fragile!
if u already have the earpods, u are purchasing inferior music quality with these. just get the EARBUDi accessory for the earpods and enjoy much better music with almost the same noise isolation as these earphones.
thumbs down! …

My Favorite Headphones
I love these earbuds! They are the only ones I have tried that don't hurt my ears and stay in place while I run. I was incredibly I love these earbuds! They are the only ones I have tried that don't hurt my ears and stay in place while I run. I was incredibly bummed when I sent them through the wash by accident and stunned when I discovered they still worked afterwards. I rate these above the Bose earbuds I own, the sound quality isn't quite as amazing but those make my ears hurt, a lot. …

- Asked by Jeongnim K
Hi, I doubt your troubles are because of the microphone, it might seem that way (touching the mike w Hi, I doubt your troubles are because of the microphone, it might seem that way (touching the mike will make audible noise in your ears).
I can assure you the microphone actually IS shut down when no app is using it: e.g. you're not in a phone call, no app is recording stuff, not talking to Siri, etc.
What you're most probably experiencing is the so-called "microphonics" or "microphoning effect". In short, it means that mechanical vibrations on the headphone cable are transmitted along it into your ear. It's similar to banging on pipes and how that sound travels along. The rubbery ends between the headphones and the cable are there for the purpose of muffling these noises, though apparently they don't muffle it enough.
The key to reducing this kind of noise is in reducing the length of cable that is exposed to mechanical vibrations and could transmit that sound into your ear. One way of doing this is using a clip to attach the cord to e.g. your shirt. The closer the clip will be to the head the better. The recommended way though is to wear the earphones over-the-ear, that way the outer ear will absorb most of the noise.
Also this way you could find a more comfortable angle for the headphones to enter the ear. In my case I was able to insert them much deeper that way which also improves bass transfer and further improves noise insulation. …

Can I use my the earbuds that came with the iPhone 5 to watch movies on an airplane
- Asked by Murray B from Calgary
Probably. As long as whatever you're watching movies with has a 3.5mm jack, you should be fine.
