    Seems to be the only good thing apple makes lately. These ear pods have great sound quality and works great with my galaxy s5. Only problem is that they seem to become quiet over a few months of use, I have tried cleaning them out and they are still quiet. Overall they are fairly good for $30 earphones even though they seem to have a short life span.

    Well, I loved them when they came with my IPod Touch. The sound was great, and the shape and size fit my ears perfectly! I loved them, until the truth hit me. The plastic covering was coming off, and the jack its self, Was bending and breaking. I had them for almost a whole year! I got aggravated when the jack had bent so much that it was causing only one earphone to work. I had to bend it back into place every 5 second. Worth buying, just try to preserve them longer than I did.

    Very comfortable

    • Written by from SLINGERLANDS

    Love these earbuds, much more ergonomic than the older style. My only complaint has to do with the plug end, where it is attached to the device. If they would just make the part you grip when disconnecting a little longer & easier to grip, it would last longer. Or is that the point? Mine are tearing there, from the few times I've slipped my grip as I was disconnecting them.

    Best-Buy For This Price Range

    • Written by from Bucharest

    I’ve bought my first pair about six months ago. I was impressed and they actually fit into my ear. They are actually comfortable and I prefer them over most in-ear models which actually hurt after a while.

    After a while, due to my own fault, the remote broke. I was surprised to see the headsets still working. A few days ago I’ve replaced them and this is my second pair. Since I could have invested in something theoretically superior (don’t think BOSE but you can get a low end sennheiser at this price and I’ve kept them, then I do enjoy the EarPods.

    As far as sound quality, I think they are somewhere in the middle. It sometimes sounds harsh and it could use a bit more clarity. But the thing is that, from my own tests, unless you want to spend $200 on a really good quality pair of in-ear headsets, any other choice brings only marginal improvements.

    - The shape and the fact that they fit perfectly.
    - Decent sound quality, NOT audiophile level, even a $20 on-ear pair of headsets blows them out of the water.
    - The brilliant remote, maybe the #1 reason why I’ve bought them again.
    - Price, kind-of.

    - Fragility.
    - The case is not that practical.
    - Major distortion at over 80% volume.

    More Colors!!!

    • Written by from Taunton

    I love these headphones more than anything. They are comfortable and have a perfect sound, as well as a perfect price. Also they last a pretty long time. The only downside is that with everyday use they no longer look white. I wish Apple would make these headphones in other colors like black or grey

    I would like to see these earbuds on a Bluetooth model around the neck . They fit my ears perfect but the cord to my iPhone gets in the way of my work . I have been thru 6 pair due to hanging on an object and getting cut or damaged in some other way .

    Really nice product for default headphones.

    • Written by from Karac

    It is really good if I compare with to other headphones/earphones that come with other smartphones. It is quite good, sound is clear and seems of quality. Really enjoy it.

    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.

    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 :)

    Great fit! Not so great sound quality...

    • Written by from Newent

    The title says it all really: the fit is great so far more comfortable than earphones with round earbuds, but the sound quality isn't that impressive. The built in mic and play/pause/volume buttons are useful though. Would recommend if you're looking for a pair of earphones on a budget.

    Not Just "For the Price"

    • Written by from Patterson

    I listen mostly to orchestral classical music. For this, you need much more than "great bass." In fact, when 50 or more instruments are playing at once, bloated bass can get in the way. What you need is balance from top to bottom. I have a pair of IEMs that deliver it just right. But in search of 'outer' earbuds that provide similar balance, I've tried $10, $15, $40, $80, $100, and $140 buds. All respectable brands. And I find every one of them distracting in some way. One sounds tinny. Another, toylike. A few sound too murky at the bottom. One is refreshingly clean and open, but lean--too lean to faithfully reproduce the sound of a full size orchestra. I've tried each one with earpads, without earpads, and with donut-foams. And none of it is satisfactory. Sure, these higher priced buds might enable me to hear a flutist take a breath or a cellist turn his page, but there is always some aspect of the music that is annoyingly out of balance.

    And now I try Apple ear pods, and find them . . . the best. Deep, rich, clean, crisp. And balanced. I can listen to the music without being distracted by some recurring idiosyncrasy. AEPs just give me the music.

    Now, I find this disturbing. Why should so many more-expensive earbuds have such significant flaws or deficiencies when a pair of $30 ear pods can get it right? I don't know the answer. Of course, sound quality is a subjective thing, so maybe it's my ears that are flawed and deficient. But at the proverbial end of the day, I have to trust my ears over the reviews, experts, and critics. And the Apple ear pods sound, to me, just right. Balanced. And not just "for the price."

    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.

    Better than I thought they would be

    • Written by from Spring

    I got these with my iPhone 6. They are pretty comfortable for the first 30mins of wearing and then start to hurt the inside of my ears. I am usually using my Skull Candy 50/50 that have a deeper bass than these but are also $25 higher in price. For the money (if i would have paid for these separately) I would feel they are worth the $30. I think anyone that buys these will be surprised by how good they sound.

    Amazing Sound

    • Written by from Saint Petersburg

    Fantastic sound. Unfortunately the round foam pads don't fit them. Without the foam pads, after some time, sweat gets in the speakers and ruins them. Anyone have a fix for this?

    Great sound, but don't be too rough

    • Written by from Lawrenceville

    I love using my EarPods. They sound amazing, they're comfortable, they don't fall out easily. But I use them every day, and constantly put them through a lot. Before long, wires begin bending, breaking, insulation strips off, and eventually one side may stop working (it's been the right side every time). It's not necessarily bad build quality, but I do wish they were more durable. However, I keep coming back to EarPods because they're still great. If you get these, just be sure to keep them in the case when you're not using them, or tape certain areas (I'd suggest around the headphone jack and where it splits into the left and right bud). I love 'em, you just can't be too rough!

    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!

    All around very good

    • Written by from Laguna Niguel

    These are one of the best pair of headphones I've ever used. Their unique design creates it's own category. They don't have the discomfort of the seal of real in-ear headphones but still have the same amazing sound quality, if not better. They are so COMFORTABLE. I can wear them for hours and forget they are there, whereas I would get headaches after about an hour with other headphones. They are very durable and well designed. I use them for music, video editing, movie watching, just about everything and now I have 4 pairs! One complaint: they do leak sound considerably so I can't use these in the library.

    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.

    Best earphones I have ever had.

    • Written by from Keswick

    I don't know how Apple did it but they feel great in the ears and the sound is really crisp and the quality and craftsmanship is impressive though the microphone could use an update. Works well with my MacBook Pro I love how it can change the volume on my Mac my iPhone and any iPods I have. Great buy, I would recommend this to anyone even if they don't use an Apple product to get a set and try them out. I guarantee you'll be satisfied with your purchase like I have. I tip my hat to you Apple. The only reason I'm giving it four stars is because the microphone needs to be updated.
