    Amazing so far

    • Written by from Cirencester

    I purchased these EarPods about a week ago and so far I have only got positive things to say about them because they are purely stunning and the quality is not matched for the price. I would be prepared to pay around £75 for these because I have found the quality as good as my beats which cost well over £75

    Amazing for the price, especially with foam covers

    • Written by from London

    As these were always falling out of my ears I hunted around to find some extra large foam covers.

    I found the difference in sound amazing - from an okay £25 pair to an outstanding £100 pair for around 50p.

    I've tried a lot of different 'phones in my time and with foam covers they are only beaten by an old pair of Shure in-ears I have (and the Apple earpods are much more comfy for long listening.)

    Clear sound, comfortable but utterly useless in day to day use

    • Written by from Glasgow

    These came with my iPhone 5s, I tried them just to see how they would compare to my Dr.Dre Beats I got with my old HTC some 4 years ago. The sound quality is great - providing you're sitting in your living room with no people around. On the street you can hear EVERYTHING that's going on around you, they cancel zero noise. They are comfortable but don't stay in your ear even when just walking around, forget about running with these. Mine are now permanently confined to my PC at work as that's the only thing they are good for, my 4 year old Beats beat these hands down in just about every single aspect.

    The best earphones under £200

    • Written by from Gorleston-on-sea

    I have been using them ever since the launch of the iPhone 5 and have loved them ever since. I use them every day on my mac, my iPad and my iPhone. They are amazingly comfortable and can be worn for hours without any trouble. I have no complaints whatsoever.

    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.

    Fix it!

    • Written by from Ozoan park

    I have no complaints about its sound quality, fitting, design. They all are superb. But I felt disappointed when I tried to unplug it from my phone, the base came up without the pin and then the earphones died! And that wax in the mics aren't perfect aswell! :( Make sure you fix it ASAP.

    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 :)

    Simply 5*

    • Written by from Sheffield

    50 times better than the old apple headphones, fit better, sound better, better in every way (except collecting ear wax D: a quick clean and wipe fixed though). the wire is very strong. i have a 2 year old set of these that i chewed where the two wires joined to make one and after i accidentally went to sleep on them and got them rapped around my waist, the plastic rubber wire is coming off the join. but i chewed it anyway, it is still very strong and hasn't effected performance. also mine seem to be waterproof. :)

    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.

    Maybe for an emergency

    • Written by from Chichester

    Just tried these with my new iPhone and... horrible. As a person with small ears they were painful to wear and took awhile to fit properly to hear the music at the right volume.
    Secondly, though you put it as one of your highlights, the richer bass feature would have been better if it could be turned off depending on a person's preference; for me, with quite sensitive hearing, found it quite a sickening experience. All this for the duration of one song!

    Overall I would only use them for a call but never again for music.

    Earphones came with my iPhone and within 2 weeks of hardly using them the left earphone cracked open leaving the earphone unusable. Will not be buying a new pair due to expense and because of what happened to my other pair

    For £25, it's thoroughly worth it.

    • Written by from Cheltenham

    I bought these over a year ago, not long after they were announced with the iPhone 5. I asked my local Apple distributer if I could try them since I wanted a good pair of headphones. When I put them in, I was surprised at how well the fit my ears, they didn't hurt after a while as other pairs do and my lord, the sound was something I hadn't heard from a pair of stock headphones. I tried the in-ear buds which were much more expensive a year before and not only did they not fit my ears and feel awkward, to me they sounded tinny and awful, but with these it was like night and day. The clarity is brilliant with great mids and lows and music sounds fantastic on them. I'm sure there are better sounding headphone buds but for £25, just even for apple branded devices, I don't see how you'd complain.

    Also, whilst the cables have slowly became more dirty over the year, I have never had them tangle and knot so badly I spent more than a minute unravelling them. Neither buds have worn or broken and it's all in great order. Whilst designed for Apple devices, be assured, these work with many many many more devices as it's almost a standard interface. Personally I use them on my PCs and my Samsung Galaxy S2 and they work flawlessly and sound just as good on anything I use with them. I honestly recommend these to any person looking for decent headphones, even non-Apple lovers.

    As the title says, for £25, I can't see how you can go wrong.

    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.

    Poor headphones - they break every 5 months

    • Written by from London

    Why waste £25 on a new set of headphones when you can spend £150 on a pair of Bose which will last longer? The rubber may come away at the jack but at least the music still plays which is more than can be said for Apple products. Very disappointing Apple.

    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!

    Worth the money. I've owned soooooooo many pairs in the past, most of which break within a month. The quality hasn't ever been as good as these and when I have paid a little bit extra to get better ones they still manage to break. These ones have lasted for at least 5 months now and the quality is brill. Love the sound! Apple, you actually have one decent priced product that works well
