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.

Ratings & Reviews
Nice package but very, very low sound quality
I never intended to do a review, and at the time I bought them I presumed they were fine, since, well, they seemed to sound better I never intended to do a review, and at the time I bought them I presumed they were fine, since, well, they seemed to sound better than the default headphones, sound was clearer. The problem is that now I got hold of two pairs of more or less decent over the ear headphones and while comparing which pair is better, I decided to compare the subject of this review, as well. My findings are quite shocking: playing the same bit of a song, wearing Apple in-ear headphones I cannot hear parts that I now know are there, predominantly at low frequencies. This is really outrageous, I cannot believe I payed £66 pounds for such a piece of trash! I even compared the default iPhone 4S headphones. Even though they are less clear, using them I can actually physically distinguish all the parts and instruments of a song, which in a sense tells you that given the retail price of £66 one needs to try, and try hard, to make as rubbish headphones as Apple in-ear ones. …

They are overpriced if you ask me. …

They were miles better than the free ones i got with my iPhone and i've just doubled the experience by fitting them with some Comply Whoomp! memory foam earbuds. I'm now unable to listen to them at full volume because the bass is head numbing!
After having them for nearly 2 years the rubber has started to split where the leads go into the headphones on both sides, which I've cured with some white electrical tape Blue Peter style!
When it's time to replace them i'd definitely consider another pair. …

Can you buy replacement ear tips for apple head phones
- Asked by Irene S from Kelowna
No, you can't yet, which is really bad PR from my point of view since they are not cheap! I have the No, you can't yet, which is really bad PR from my point of view since they are not cheap! I have them and they are really good, may be the best i ever had in terms of sound quality and comfortability, but i seriously can't believe that MAC will not be aware that the rubber that goes on it needs replacement every several months. The fact that they are not available is really revealing of their intention to make you buy new ones.
As they changed the plug for the Iphone a few years ago when they didn't needed it, now they are coming out with a product that you can't fix. At least up to today! …

Will in ear headphones improve clarity of movies on ipad, especially in flight?
- Asked by Susan H from Perth
Short answer: Yes. I travel a lot and I actually swear by these headphones for flying. As soon as yo Short answer: Yes. I travel a lot and I actually swear by these headphones for flying. As soon as you put them in, it's like wearing earplugs. They cut out most of the sound around you, including all the white noise that you'll quickly realize is actually quite loud on a a plane. As a result, when you watch movies with them, you don't need to turn up the volume nearly as high and you can hear much more of the detail in the soundtrack. Not only does this improve your movie watching experience, it reduces the amount of fatigue you'd normally experience from being exposed to loud noise for the duration of the flight. I put them in from the moment I sit down, even if they're not plugged into anything and don't take them off until the plane lands. Just remember to turn the volume down first if you ever plug them into an inflight entertainment system, because it's almost always set way too loud by the person before you who didn't have these. As a bonus, on long flights, I also find them small and comfortable enough to sleep in. Just be a bit mindful when you have them out of the case and out of your ears. The tips can fall off and then be difficult to find if they roll under someone's seat. It's happened to me about three times in about four years of flying with these, but it's a pain when it does. …
