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. …

Right now I have the volume turned up full and can't really even hear the bass. Apart from that the treble is tinny.. I wouldn't be surprised if these headphones are actually bad for your ears. They are overpriced if you ask me. …

You're all wrong... These are good.
I bought a pair of these about five years ago on recommendation from a friend after complaining about another pair of headphones t I bought a pair of these about five years ago on recommendation from a friend after complaining about another pair of headphones that had perished after limited use.
Since then I have had two more pairs (I lost a pair and bought a replacement, and HMV had reduced them to £30 once, so I couldn't resist)... None have experienced any build quality faults after extensive use (my in-line remote on a £130 pair of Bose is temperamental)... They dismantle easily for a deep clean...
All Apple users will appreciate the simple understated look, the excellent compact carry case and the hardy in-line remote...
Now to address the well-documented flaws:
- replacement buds... I got some from the Regent Street Apple Store for free... I don't know if that was a lucky exception or something that other users have not done.
- lack of bass... I agree with the other user - PUSH THEM IN - get the snuggest fit buds and push them to create a seal with the ear... And this helps block out the external noise...
- clarity... for most users paying £60 I guess that these will be for your iPod/iPhone whilst on the bus/tube and not for studio-listening... I get plenty of clarity for in-ear headphones and they compare well to similarly priced Sennheiser and Sony sets that I have bought... I agree with another reviewer that the only time I notice extra 'parts' to a song is when using higher-end on-earphones in a quiet environment...
[ I personally would recommend Bose earphones if you live near a store as they will give you unlimited replacement buds and will replace the headphones under a two-year warranty... When out of warranty they heavily discount a new pair to replace them... ]
Make your mind up for yourselves but if you get a chance to try these then do... …

These ear phones come with different sized silicon ear buds, but they are very easy to lose and are then impossible to replace fro These ear phones come with different sized silicon ear buds, but they are very easy to lose and are then impossible to replace from Apple. I found the smallest the only size that fits me, and having lost one - and I store my IPod and ear phones in a ziplock bag as they easily pop off - they are pretty much useless. The next size up is both uncomfortable, and springs out of my ear. You can buy replacement ear buds from other companies, but had I known before how easy they were to lose, and that they cannot be replaced, I would have bought in-ear headphones from a company that sold replacements. Also the replacement ones I've found are black, which would look better if I'd already got black headphones. …
