    Awful

    • Written by from Hull

    Earphones came with my iPhone and within 2 weeks of hardly using them the left earphone cracked open leaving the earphone unusable. Will not be buying a new pair due to expense and because of what happened to my other pair

    For £25, it's thoroughly worth it.

    • Written by from Cheltenham

    I bought these over a year ago, not long after they were announced with the iPhone 5. I asked my local Apple distributer if I could try them since I wanted a good pair of headphones. When I put them in, I was surprised at how well the fit my ears, they didn't hurt after a while as other pairs do and my lord, the sound was something I hadn't heard from a pair of stock headphones. I tried the in-ear buds which were much more expensive a year before and not only did they not fit my ears and feel awkward, to me they sounded tinny and awful, but with these it was like night and day. The clarity is brilliant with great mids and lows and music sounds fantastic on them. I'm sure there are better sounding headphone buds but for £25, just even for apple branded devices, I don't see how you'd complain.

    Also, whilst the cables have slowly became more dirty over the year, I have never had them tangle and knot so badly I spent more than a minute unravelling them. Neither buds have worn or broken and it's all in great order. Whilst designed for Apple devices, be assured, these work with many many many more devices as it's almost a standard interface. Personally I use them on my PCs and my Samsung Galaxy S2 and they work flawlessly and sound just as good on anything I use with them. I honestly recommend these to any person looking for decent headphones, even non-Apple lovers.

    As the title says, for £25, I can't see how you can go wrong.

    Amazing Sound But Has A Poor Life Span

    • Written by from London

    I've loved the EarPods ever since it was released two years ago. It's not too expensive compared to other brands available in the market and it has simply sublime audio quality unlike the previous earphones. I was pleasantly surprised that the sounds it produced were incredibly much better than some German brands or even the Dr. Dre Beats earphones.My only pickle with it is that is not very durable and I've had to replace it several times already when the wires start to wear and become exposed which seems to be a prevalent problem with all the cables and wires produced by Apple.

    Poor headphones - they break every 5 months

    • Written by from London

    Why waste £25 on a new set of headphones when you can spend £150 on a pair of Bose which will last longer? The rubber may come away at the jack but at least the music still plays which is more than can be said for Apple products. Very disappointing Apple.

    Great Earphones, but noisy.

    • Written by

    A few years ago i owned a horrible pair of the old Apple earphones, bad sound quality and felt uncomfortable in the ear. However, I borrowed a pair of these EarPods from a friend, and soon sought out to buy one for myself from the Apple Store. The earphones have a perfect base and great sound and are really comfortable, they fit perfectly in my ear. There is one issue though, the earphones are noisy and other people can hear them slightly. This is bad when you are taking them out and about. The remote is great, and bigger than on the old ones. The controls are handy on the tube and when running. Overall, a great pair of earphones and reasonable price. Recommended!

    Brill

    • Written by from Plumstead

    Worth the money. I've owned soooooooo many pairs in the past, most of which break within a month. The quality hasn't ever been as good as these and when I have paid a little bit extra to get better ones they still manage to break. These ones have lasted for at least 5 months now and the quality is brill. Love the sound! Apple, you actually have one decent priced product that works well

    I love my EarPods! Excellent sound quality, very loud too! Really well designed that you can answer/end calls, change/fast forward songs by using the control system. Great product, worth the £25!

    Perfect For Country Road Runners!

    • Written by from Helston

    I received my EarBuds with my new iPod nano 7, however the iPod was faulty so I had to return them, but I did try the EarPods before this mishap, and I loved them! They had a clear sound whilst allowing me to hear the sound of a car, which was several metres away. This was really useful to me as I run on windy country roads, and therefore need to be able to hear any traffic.

    I had no problem keeping them in my ears - I've tried many different earphones, and through just walking, many have fallen out. Not these, these stayed put after a hard and fast 1 mile run, with no extra assistance from headbands or anything like that, very impressed!

    After my faulty Nano, I've decided to get a shuffle, and am disappointed that it will come with regular Apple Earphones. I was considering buying these as an upgrade, but after listening to the performance, I thought they might be very expensive. After seeing them for sale at £25 I shall definitely be purchasing them!

    Good quality but not as durable as I'd like

    • Written by from Brighouse

    As most of the earbuds on the market are those weird ones which stick right in your ear canal, I love the shape of these and find them really comfortable. I'm no music fanatic either but the sound quality is definitely good enough. The remote is also super helpful and I can't live without one anymore.

    My only issue is the durability. For a £25 pair of earphones I'd quite like a minimum of 6 months use. Mine are pretty much dead now after 5 months - I can get music to play if I wiggle the wire a bit but the remote is dead. I think if I'd been a bit more careful they could have lasted longer but still, I expect a bit more.

    The ear-pods are great!!!! They're great value for money and you get them free with every new iPhone.
    The sound that comes out of the ear pods is amazing and they have never failed or changed their performance for me. I would advise everyone to get them because they are that good. Also, there's no doubt that they fit and stay in my ears. Well done Apple!!

    Amazing headphones

    • Written by from London

    These headphones are really good for listening to music regularly and have amazing sound quality however, they do not stand up to abuse very well. i recently fell asleep with them on and now the music flips from ear to ear. Still they lasted a whole year being just fine, just don't sleep with them on.

    I have had vast amount of apple headphones, but these new ones are far greater, they seem more sturdy and less prone to ripping or braking, has last me for a while now, probably longer then the others and the sound quality is really good, would defo recommend !

    Bring back the old ones

    • Written by from London

    They don't fit my ears, so they fall out if god forbid I turn my head. The poor fit also means they are very quiet unless I hold them in with my fingers.
    There is something about the rubbery cord that means they are always tangled as if someone had deliberately tied them in nots every time I need them.
