    Fantastic!

    As soon as i got these as a Christmas present, i made sure i fitted the correct silicone buds for my ears, which is where i guess a few of the negative reviewers went wrong. 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.

    Apple In Ear Earphones

    • Written by from st.Austell

    Sound is amazing, amazing bass and vocals. Good for all genres of music and block out other noises very well. They are also very comfortable and definitely worth £65. Found that bass is better if i push the earphones into my ears then they sound better and feel more comfortable as i can hardly feel them

    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 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...
