    I used the h-e-double-hockey sticks outta these (Apple won't let me curse)

    ...and after three years, they're starting to fall apart. Still, a good value at $27 a year. For all you haters who can't hang onto the silicone tips (yeah, I lost one too), go to Amazon and order a three-pair set of Comply Whoomp Foam Tips for $15. They will absolutely block out outside noise and allow you to listen to music or carry on a phone conversation in a noisy area.

    Good buds...

    • Written by from Calgary

    I must admit the sound quality is really good. However, living in a dry climate (Calgary) like I do, I have noticed, after time, static electricity build up on the metallic speakers to which the rubber buds attach to. Sometimes the discharge of static electricity is quite painful, so I remedied the situation by taking clear tape and adhering to the speakers on both the left and right side. It definitely solved the problem, but I hoped I wouldn't have resorted to such measures. Out of really good ear buds that I've used, these are good except that.

    Thanks for your attention.

    An Ok Headphone, Not worth the price

    • Written by from Mountain View

    The highs and mids are good. as expected with a two driver headphone, It really does allow you to hear more detail. However, the bass is non existent unless you create a perfect seal with the headphone in your ear. I was expecting more. They look like the regular headphones Apple offers, so don't expect anyone to notice your 80 dollar headphones. Now for the major downfalls. The earpieces are not comfortable! it comes with 3 sizes and none fit just right. and they begin to hurt after a while If you manage to get them in just right don't expect them to come off in one piece. The earpiece will pop off in your ear while the rest comes out and you have to fish it out of your ear. In fact they pop off so easily i have already lost almost all of them.

    A huge apple fan but honestly the worst purchase I've ever made...

    • Written by from Manchestet

    I purchased the headphones less than one month ago and was quite happy with the product even though over priced at £65 in my opinion but hey, then they decided to BRAKE. The headphones were fine for around 2 weeks on till the left ear began to develop a crackle in the the quality, soon after the sound became quieter and seem distant and exactly 5 days ago the left headphone stopped producing sound altogether . Recently the right ear headphone has developed the same crackle and most probably will STOP WORKING altogether like the left side of the headphones. So anyone interested in these headphones look away because they are not worth the MONEY absolute let down !!!. I personally would purchase the standard pair that you receive in the box of your iPhone/iPod ect which I will be doing on payday, a cheaper, longer lasting product with with still quite impressive quality.

    Fantastic in-ear buds.

    • Written by from Jarrell

    I was a little skeptical about purchasing these headphones because, to be honest, I have never really liked the traditional Apple earbuds that come with the new products. I actually received these as a gift from a friend. Now that I've had a chance to use them, I would definitely buy them for myself.

    Considering the fact that these are not studio monitors I can still hear a higher level of detail than with traditional earbuds. I keep seeing people talk about not getting the bass response that they want from these and it's really a simple matter of fact... The drivers are tiny. They fit in your ear. An effective bass speaker needs to push a lot of air very slowly to make a big bang and that's why car speakers are so large and in sealed boxes most of the time. Tiny little speakers just aren't very effective at reproducing the super low notes, but I digress.

    I would recommend these ear buds for those who like sound quality more than sound quantity.

    Love them!

    • Written by from Tukwila

    I put off buying these for a long time because I wasn't really a fan of the in ear type. When I upgraded from iPhone 4s to iPhone 5s in January or this year with the newer type I started using them. And a few weeks ago I broke down and purchased these from a local store. I love them! I haven't had them very long but I have had no problems with them. I originally put the small covers on them then switched back to the mediums when I read another review about finding the best fit being important for the sound. And it was a huge difference! Now my bass is excellent! I love that you can skip and rewind songs right from the remote on them! I would definitely recommend them to a friend or family member!

    Remote is great; sound not so much

    • Written by from Los Gatos

    These are great if your audio is limited to mono conference calls with your boss. If you're interested in listening to much on these things, make sure it's not rap, as there is 0% bass. The remote is awesome, enabling you to shuffle through your music (sorry, conference calls) quickly.

    They sound tinny, shrill, and way too bright for anything other than Brian Eno or EDM. Into dubstep? Do NOT buy these headphones.

    DO NOT BUY THESE HEADPHONES

    • Written by from Diss

    These headphones cost £65 - but YOU CANNOT REPLACE THE RUBBER END BITS - apple does not sell them and the headphone is smaller than standard brands so other makes do not fit.

    THIS NOW MEANS THAT 16 WEEKS AFTER SPENDING £65 ON THESE HEADPHONES - I NEED TO THROW THEM AWAY...

    (I lost a small size rubber end bit in a taxI - when travelling. It cannot be replaced. Headphones now useless)


    So DO NOT BUY THESE HEADPHONES YOU ARE WASTING YOUR MONEY !!!!

    It's a good headphone but Apple is not making headphones as their main thing so I suggest going with the Apple EarPods their are extremely great sounding headphones I have ever seen and it's just $30.But,if you like In-Ear Headphones go with the others or take this one.

    Apple In Ear Earphones

    • Written by from st.Austell

    Sound is amazing, amazing bass and vocals. Good for all genres of music and block out other noises very well. They are also very comfortable and definitely worth £65. Found that bass is better if i push the earphones into my ears then they sound better and feel more comfortable as i can hardly feel them

    Poor sounds quality, poor construction

    • Written by from Miami

    I bought these because I didn't like the EarPods that came with my iPhone 5. The EarPods would not stay in my ears. The In-Ear headphones stayed in ok, but the sound quality was poor - weak to none existent bass. Then about 3 weeks after receiving them, the left earphone stopped working.

    Fantastic, the best...... Almost!!!

    • Written by from Darlinghurst

    The best in ear headphones ever, but let down by the fact the rubber ear pieces constantly come off and are lost, which renders them useless....as stated by other customers.
    Apple. Please make the grip fit tighter, so you attain a perfect score!

    Most awful earphone i ever owned. not worth 30 cents. much less $80 dlrs.

    • Written by from East meadow

    RUN!! Keep your money!!!

    Only now i KNOW i had it VERY good with the original $30 pair that came with the iphone. i like base and i need to hear sounds around me while wearing earphones. i dont need to crank up the volume. So for the original earphone, i purchased black foam covers, at Radiio Shack, so the earphones didnt slide out of my ears constantly.

    Then i spent/threw away $80 dlrs. VERY VERY Disappointed with Apple. horrendous sound. i used the medium plugs and couldn't hear ppl talking to me and the base was VERY poor.

    Then i replaced for the small buds. Now there is no base at all - only treble. In addition I still can't hear ppl around me very well.

    They sounds like CHEAP AM radio. i mean horrendous!
    Save yourself $50.
    i WISH i could have had a Test Drive! would not pay 30 cents.

    Wil buy the $30 dlrs pair and the black foams.

    Warning!

    • Written by from London

    Do not be mislead by the £65 price tag. These headphone are very, VERY poor quality. Apple's own £25 earphones are vastly superior in terms of sound quality. Please don't waste your money (and it is a lot of money)... like I did.

    Great sound, but significant issues with reliability

    • Written by from Toronto

    I've gone through three sets now. I've re-purchased because I'm pleased with the sound. I'll enumerate three issues:

    (1) ambient noise tends to get in around the buds
    (2) the remote mic and builtin controls tends to fail
    (3) the silicon in ear pieces tend to fall off easily and get lost

    Were these $40 I'd be delighted, at their current price point I'm looking for alternatives next purchase.

    Last 6 months, Apple will not replace them

    • Written by from Reston

    Despite the excellent sound quality and great price point for dual-driver headphones, I do not recommend this product. They are extremely fragile, made for aesthetics rather than durability. At six months old I had no audio in the right earphone, and Apple refuses to replace them even though they are in warranty and appear as new condition-they attribute the failure to wear and tear, which is not covered by the warranty. My experience with this one product has tarnished my opinion of Apple, especially their service procedures.To add to the frustration, you cannot obtain extra silicone ear tips for these headphones. They tend to come off easily and do get dirty over time.
