    Earpods Work Great!

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    Mine went through the wash in the pocket of my school skirt, and they still work! And now they're clean, too. I know guys in my grade who buy Beats and they break within a week. I've had the Earpods for two months (which WENT THROUGH THE WASH) and they still work. Even the actual silver part is slightly crooked and they still work. The sound quality is good, they're super portable, and I love the remote. I recommend these!

    Comparable to more expensive products and lasts under regular use for years

    • Written by from Tulsa

    Around three years ago near the original launch, I bought a pair for use with my iPhone 4. Immediately noticed the difference in sound quality back then; difference was like night and day, between the previous model of Apple earphones. Since then, I've had experience with other products. I think the Apple Earpods are some of the best out there, especially for the price. The audio is accurate and the bass surprises.

    WIth regular, reasonable usage (i.e., not catching your devices by the cord or tossing them into the bottom of your bag) these should last as long as you need them to. You don't ever have to clean them; they dirty only very slightly over time. You don't really need the case, either. I actually used my pair practically every day until I sold them yesterday, for $15, and am about to open the pair that came with my 5s.

    Not for me...

    • Written by from Toronto

    Everyone's ear is shaped differently. But the shape of mine, albeit pretty standard, is still not one these pods accommodate well. They fill in my ear perfectly, so it's not down to the size of my ear being too large for them, yet they still fall out like crazy even when I move my head just a little, save to say when I'm exercising, be it running on a treadmill, stepping on a stepper, or even exercising on a mat in a lying position. I'm bitterly disappointed - these pods are clearly not for me. I'm glad that Apple's salesperson assured me that albeit they're earphones, they will take them back without ifs and buts.

    AVOID

    • Written by from Wellington

    Just got my brand new iPhone 6 and the (also brand new) buds doesn't even work. I also tried them with my previous iPhone (4S), my MBP and my iPad, no sound out of it, so... straight to the waste basket where they belong...

    Great Improvment, here are some pros and cons...

    • Written by from Edgerton

    Been using iDevices since the original iPod. And for a long time the headphones that came with the devices where complete junk.

    The remote on the iTouch headphones were a great improvement. And now with my new iPhone 6 they are actually a joy to use! Still the audio suffers due to the fact that they are earbuds, I listen with my PX360 Mixing headphones normally, so I can tell the difference in audio quality.

    Let me tell you the pros and cons of these headphones.
    Pros:
    1. Light, easy on the ears, don't pull bad.
    2. Fits Adults and Older Teens well.
    3. Great bass range.
    4. Great mic and controls. In a great place, easy to get to them.

    Cons!:
    1. They are $30... This is a little pricy for earbuds. I feel its worth it for what you get.
    2. They don't fit Kids/Small/Young teens ears well. Some might say it actually hurts to try using.
    3. The range is focused on bass, that being said, Highs and even Mids suffer badly. NOT TRUE AUDIO REPRODUCTION. Don't use for professorship mixing or music training.
    4. The insulation is still that rubbery type that apple clings to so much, so that it might crumble or break if you don't take care of them.

    This is just my experience, trying to stay true and not present to much favoritism to apple, it's just hard not to.

    Excellent!

    • Written by from Hawick

    Absolutely wonderful, great quality and no degrading of that quality. My experiences with these EarPods are excellent and no cheap ripoffs come anywhere close. Alas mine finally broke through my own carelessness and the jack bent. They still work (amazingly) but with a broken jack I don't want to risk plugging them in. I might have to forego a replacement due to budget though. It's a shame.

    Terrible Design for comfort

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Are all the reviews that say these headphones fit well and are comfortable to wear written by Apple employees? Without any type of rubber gasket, these headphones do NOT stay in the ear even when you are stationary. The hard plastic casing hurts like heck just trying to set them inside the ear. They may look great, but whoever designed them did so without any consideration that not all ears and ear canals are the same size... Yet again Apple pushes form over function without proper user experience (UX) testing. I now have two unusable pair of earbuds, one that came with my 5s and one from my 6 Plus. Anybody want to buy a pair at a very cheap price (just pay for shipping)?

    Awesome Ear Pods

    • Written by from Santee

    Recently I began checking out new ear buds. After buying and returning several very expensive brands I found that the Apple Ear Pods were far superior to even the $100 plus ear phones. Nice job Apple.

    Good earbuds, junky build quality

    • Written by from Toronto

    These earbuds came with the phone I purchased in September 2014. The sound was an improvement over previous incarnations of earbuds however after dropping the phone with the 'buds plugged in, the connector broke free of the cable. For $35 Apple should put a bit more quality into their products.

    Fix it!

    • Written by from Ozoan park

    I have no complaints about its sound quality, fitting, design. They all are superb. But I felt disappointed when I tried to unplug it from my phone, the base came up without the pin and then the earphones died! And that wax in the mics aren't perfect aswell! :( Make sure you fix it ASAP.

    Worst earphones EVER!

    • Written by from Scarborough

    I bought these earphones because of all the positive reviews people have left for this product, but after testing them out for myself, I just realized that I made a big mistake! These earphones are TERRIBLE! They are so uncomfortable and awkward! The bass is very good, and the overall sound quality is amazing, but the actual earphones are not. I listened to one song on a decent volume level, and I immediately got a painful headache! Who came up with the design for these earphones? They are shaped so weirdly that they fit so awkwardly in my ears. The bass is so clear that it literally feels like the music is trapped in my ears and spilling into my brain! I couldn't even listen to a few songs because of the terrible headache I got after using these earphones. What a waste of money. What happened to the simple white earphones that came with the older iPod generations? Those were simple and shaped properly. They were round and simple, and the bass wasn't so strong that your ear drums felt like they were under attack. I fear that these earphones could actually cause damage to people's hearing. I warn you not to buy these, get something else!

    HURTS SO MUCH

    • Written by from Columbus

    I actually like that sound and the microphone feature, but my ears have developed sores while trying to wear these. Are these made for men only? They are too large and hurt so bad.

    I prefer these over my Expensive ones

    • Written by from Clawson

    I own Bose Mie2i's and Ultimate Ears 600vi's. While I like those two a fair amount I actually prefer to use my Apple Earphones 90% of the time. I find them to be perfectly balanced, very clear and pleasant to listen to without getting fatigued. My Bose are nice but too bass heavy. The UE are very clear but zero lows and their flat EQ just feels so bland. Overall I find my Apple ones to be the best balance.
    I love the amount of artistic design put into these as well, they are gorgeous, came packaged in a very handsome case and they look and function very nicely. The reason I continue to stay with Apple (just got my 6 today) is because of polish and attention to detail such as these.

    Hard to clean :(

    • Written by from Espoo

    These earbuds have a ton of bass, good audio clarity, and they fit nicely! The only problem occurs when they don't have any removable eartips. Mine broke because they got too dirty, but it's okay because they're affordable, so I bought a new pair :)

    Simply 5*

    • Written by from Sheffield

    50 times better than the old apple headphones, fit better, sound better, better in every way (except collecting ear wax D: a quick clean and wipe fixed though). the wire is very strong. i have a 2 year old set of these that i chewed where the two wires joined to make one and after i accidentally went to sleep on them and got them rapped around my waist, the plastic rubber wire is coming off the join. but i chewed it anyway, it is still very strong and hasn't effected performance. also mine seem to be waterproof. :)

    Okay headphones

    • Written by from warner robins

    These headphones sound very good. The bass is pretty nice. The first few days of me using them they have made my ears hurt and sore. I hope they fix this in the next gen of headphones.
