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. …

These are quite comfy, but have a thin reedy sound with no bass. Tried all the the different ear cushion sizes and not much difference. If these were £25, I'd be unimpressed. At £65, frighteningly bad. …

Overall, the sound on these earphones are well balances and you can hear notes you never heard before due to the enhanced clarity.In the past I have owned sennheiser and soundmagic earphones and these blow them out the water. The only headphones that beat these are the Beats Solo HDs/Solo 2, but that is understandable because they are headphones. I have had these pair for a year, a little disappointed that they stopped working in the left year, but I will still have no doubt in buying a second pair. Well worth the money. …

Decided to give it a t Have been thinking of buying these headphones for a while, been waiting due to the bad reviews I had read.
Decided to give it a try being conscious I could return them in case of disappointment.
What to say? I am VERY SATISFIED.
Very good sound and, differently from the other apple headphones (£25), if the volume is set to the highest level nobody next to me (let's say while on the train/bus) can hear anything. Also No outside sounds are coming in, at all.
3 different sizes of silicone ear tips are also in the box, so you can be sure they'll suit you perfectly.
Nothing else to say, absolutely stunning. …

- Asked by Jeongnim K
Hi, I doubt your troubles are because of the microphone, it might seem that way (touching the mike w Hi, I doubt your troubles are because of the microphone, it might seem that way (touching the mike will make audible noise in your ears).
I can assure you the microphone actually IS shut down when no app is using it: e.g. you're not in a phone call, no app is recording stuff, not talking to Siri, etc.
What you're most probably experiencing is the so-called "microphonics" or "microphoning effect". In short, it means that mechanical vibrations on the headphone cable are transmitted along it into your ear. It's similar to banging on pipes and how that sound travels along. The rubbery ends between the headphones and the cable are there for the purpose of muffling these noises, though apparently they don't muffle it enough.
The key to reducing this kind of noise is in reducing the length of cable that is exposed to mechanical vibrations and could transmit that sound into your ear. One way of doing this is using a clip to attach the cord to e.g. your shirt. The closer the clip will be to the head the better. The recommended way though is to wear the earphones over-the-ear, that way the outer ear will absorb most of the noise.
Also this way you could find a more comfortable angle for the headphones to enter the ear. In my case I was able to insert them much deeper that way which also improves bass transfer and further improves noise insulation. …

Can I use my the earbuds that came with the iPhone 5 to watch movies on an airplane

Probably. As long as whatever you're watching movies with has a 3.5mm jack, you should be fine.
