    Just fantastic

    • Written by from Riverview

    Ok these are amazing. I have a set of Bose SIE2i and Beats studios I like these the most. The Bose crackles on certain bass levels and the Beats just crackle period and requires batteries. These are small with a lot of bass. Oh and I accidentally washed the several times and they still work like brand new.

    Great for running

    • Written by from Phoenix

    I run with these on my ipod shuffle and iphone 5. The mic and controls on the cord are wonderful. The pods don't fall out and the quality is amazing.

    I have deep ear canals and they fit me great. Love them.

    Annoyed

    • Written by from Dana point

    I have had to replace these at least 4 times. The left bud always ends up feeling bigger then the right and hurts. The sound also becomes muzzley.

    Out of the water!

    • Written by from Eagle River

    These came with my iPod touch 5th gen back in December 2012 and after reading reviews that said they were awful, uncomfortable, etc. I decided to sell them instead without even trying them out. Well, they sat in the box till now, and I decided why not try em out? I'm now writing this review with my Earpods in and I'm loving them! The sound, and bass is a huge step up from what I'm used to! Apple did an excellent job in designing these. The cord is smooth and almost silky. Cool, great sound, clean design, superb sound! Bottom line: Buy these, see if these are "THE ONES"

    Boy, was I ticked off !!!!!!

    • Written by from Evansville

    Just got a 4s and the OEM earbuds that shipped with it were atrocious !! A pop/crack at higher volumes had me pursuing a warranty claim from Apple and I received the EarPods as my warranty replacements.

    I am one happy camper now! The Classic R&R Soul is now being fed quite nicely.

    I love these things. THANK YOU APPLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Incredible

    • Written by from Wexford

    I believe Apple marketed these as comparable to headphones costing "hundreds of dollars more." I wouldn't go that far - my Sennheiser iE80's ($450), JVC FX-700's ($400), and Ultrasone Pro 750's ($450) completely destroy these buds.

    However, these are bundled free with iOS devices or cost $30. They come with an inline mic. They look and feel great. For the money, you couldn't do much better. Sure, the bass might be a bit muddy and the treble and mids a bit recessed, but they're overall vastly improved from the original Apple Earbuds.

    Mac Ear Pods on other non Mac products.

    • Written by from Spring hill

    I bought this to use with my new ipad! Works great. like the quality and able to chat when on a call or facetiming.
    One thing to keep in mind, I have a droid phone and these do not work when in call on the droid phones. I'm seeing this only works with mac products only for some reason.
    You can listen to music but that's it. Don't expect them to be in a phone call, no one can hear you. You can hear them, but mic is turned off when these are plugged in the headphone jack.

    But for mac products, headphones work great!

    No different than the first ones

    • Written by from Garner

    As far as sound quality, it's decent no different than the first pair. If you leave them in your ear for a while they start hurting, I thought that was suppose to be what these earbuds were suppose to eliminate. Other than that these earbuds are like any other pair on the market

    Uncomfortable and too much Bass

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    Dear Apple,

    Please, give us the option to buy the headphones that came with the iPhone 4S. The new headphone do not fit everyone's ears. And the bass is way too loud.

    Just please consider allowing us to buy the old ones.

    The beats are great!

    • Written by from Ulysses

    The sound of these earpods are absolutely impressive. The bass hits clear and hard. They treble is crystal clear, and the two together make for great sounding music.

    Such an improvement from the last pair! These actually fit in my ear and don't make me uncomfortable. I can actually forget their there if their not on. Love em, especially for the price!!

    Keep Falling Down

    • Written by from Calgary

    The sound quality was awesome,But they are keep falling down and they hurts my ears after wearing it for a longtime of period. For a person who loves music so much hates it when you can't listen to music because of the pain of your ear.

    Good Sound, But . . .

    • Written by from Essex Junction

    These are so uncomfortable to wear that they give me a headache. Unfortunate, as sounds are relatively clear and crisp.

    Awesome!

    • Written by from Franklin Square

    These earbuds sound so much better than older models! I love them, and I would definitely recommend them. I really like the fit of these in the ear.

    Also worth noting - I left these in my jeans pocket and they went through the washing machine, and THEY STILL WORK!! I certainly wouldn't recommend doing that, but it's nice to know! :)

    Awesome!

    • Written by from Waco

    These are awesome! The audio quality is incredible for such a small/cheep set of headphones. Be warned: these are not the kind that you stick INTO your ear. They kind of just sit there. It takes a little bit of getting used to, but as long as you don't head bang too hard, they should stay in just fine.

    Surprisingly great!

    • Written by from Phoenix

    After shorting out my iPhone 4 headphones by getting them caught and yanked one too many times (they took a lot of abuse), I tried going back to Bluetooth for a while. I was quickly fed up with the lack of clarity and volume as always, so I ordered a new set of these.

    The design was new since my previous pair, and they looked well thought-out. I've not been the greatest fan of previous Apple mice or iPod/iPhone headphones, but they have really nailed both in their current versions.

    These headphones are very clear with great base, have an open design (not sound isolating) so I can use them while driving, and despite looking thin and fragile they are among the most robust earbuds I've owned from any source. The bud shape may not stick in the ear as efficiently as the rubber type, but they are very comfortable and I can still have normal face-to-face conversations without having to take them out.

    Many naysayers like to joke about the "Apple tax" as an unnecessary premium for the caché of the brand. Those people have rarely owned or appreciated Apple products. Their criticism is true on occasion, but not most of the time -- and definitely not in this case. Subtle design features, like the wonderful rubbery coating on the wires that makes them untangle so easily, are worth the extra cost. These are surprisingly great earbuds that suited my needs perfectly.
