    Perfect For Country Road Runners!

    • Written by from Helston

    I received my EarBuds with my new iPod nano 7, however the iPod was faulty so I had to return them, but I did try the EarPods before this mishap, and I loved them! They had a clear sound whilst allowing me to hear the sound of a car, which was several metres away. This was really useful to me as I run on windy country roads, and therefore need to be able to hear any traffic.

    I had no problem keeping them in my ears - I've tried many different earphones, and through just walking, many have fallen out. Not these, these stayed put after a hard and fast 1 mile run, with no extra assistance from headbands or anything like that, very impressed!

    After my faulty Nano, I've decided to get a shuffle, and am disappointed that it will come with regular Apple Earphones. I was considering buying these as an upgrade, but after listening to the performance, I thought they might be very expensive. After seeing them for sale at £25 I shall definitely be purchasing them!

    Good quality but not as durable as I'd like

    • Written by from Brighouse

    As most of the earbuds on the market are those weird ones which stick right in your ear canal, I love the shape of these and find them really comfortable. I'm no music fanatic either but the sound quality is definitely good enough. The remote is also super helpful and I can't live without one anymore.

    My only issue is the durability. For a £25 pair of earphones I'd quite like a minimum of 6 months use. Mine are pretty much dead now after 5 months - I can get music to play if I wiggle the wire a bit but the remote is dead. I think if I'd been a bit more careful they could have lasted longer but still, I expect a bit more.

    The ear-pods are great!!!! They're great value for money and you get them free with every new iPhone.
    The sound that comes out of the ear pods is amazing and they have never failed or changed their performance for me. I would advise everyone to get them because they are that good. Also, there's no doubt that they fit and stay in my ears. Well done Apple!!

    Amazing headphones

    • Written by from London

    These headphones are really good for listening to music regularly and have amazing sound quality however, they do not stand up to abuse very well. i recently fell asleep with them on and now the music flips from ear to ear. Still they lasted a whole year being just fine, just don't sleep with them on.

    Awesome earphones!!

    I have had vast amount of apple headphones, but these new ones are far greater, they seem more sturdy and less prone to ripping or braking, has last me for a while now, probably longer then the others and the sound quality is really good, would defo recommend !

    Bring back the old ones

    • Written by from London

    They don't fit my ears, so they fall out if god forbid I turn my head. The poor fit also means they are very quiet unless I hold them in with my fingers.
    There is something about the rubbery cord that means they are always tangled as if someone had deliberately tied them in nots every time I need them.

    WHY DID THEY BREAK?!?!?!?

    • Written by from Epsom

    i loved my earpods. They would go wherever i went. but then, on a warm summers evening, the jack decided to self implode. first the actual metal bit fell out of the cable section, and then when i tried to pull them out my phone with tweezers, the bottom section decided to split from the rest of the jack. By this point i was terrified, thinking my phone would have to go to the shop to get out. I am a very heavy user, but 5 months is not good enough for apple :( hopefully they are covered by my warranty.

    Summary: Buy them, but get a warranty

    What I would have expected

    • Written by from broadway

    The sound quality is very good and the volume control setting is very useful. But unfortunately they do not fit in your ears very well and occasionally fall out hence the 4 star. For the money they are good value but don't expect anything brilliant from them.

    Awful

    • Written by from Saltcoats

    After a month, these stopped working in the left ear. Two weeks later, the plug wouldn't stay in the iPad. Ridiculous, considering how much it is for one set of headphones and it doesn't even last TWO MONTHS!!!!! Do not buy these. They break far too easily. The old headphones lasted me THREE YEARS WITHOUT BREAKING, SO WHY CAN'T THESE?!?!?!?

    Brilliant

    I've had these headphones for 16 months now, not a single sign of wear and still sound as good as they did when I first got them. Used daily for hours and I have no complaints the sound quality is very good and the remote and mic is very useful. I have another pair unused from my iphone and at this rate I can't see me using them!!

    Great sound awful comfort

    • Written by from Bolton

    These actually sound really nice and have a good bass but they are just too uncomfortable for me to recommend. My ears hurt after just 5 mins. Plus they leak really bad too

    Poor

    • Written by from Manchester

    Improvement on the last but still not good enough, I usually use my Sennheiser CX300II headphones and they've finally kicked it, back to using the apple ones temporarily and the sound is shocking. Im no audio expert but theres a clear difference in the sound quality, and for the cost of these you could get a decent pair. When you spend £500 on a phone you would think they could chuck in a lasting charger and decent set of headphones haha! Taking liberties apple, sort it ;)

    Brilliant sound for the price

    • Written by from London

    I have not had another pair of headphones that sounded as good as these at this price. They are much better than the old Apple earbuds; good range, proper bass without being too heavy.

    I was reminded today how handy the remote control is as well, because I had to use some other headphones without one today, and found myself constantly reaching for the remote that wasn't there. I had to use others because I was waiting for the EarPods to dry out after sending them through the washing machine; they still work fine, as others said!

    I'm not sure why others have had problems with them breaking; I'd call myself a medium heavy user and mine are fine after nearly a year
