    Very good quality headphones

    • Written by from Cedar Bluff

    The new EarPods by Apple are much better than the previous earbuds. I have used them day in and day out for 2 weeks and they are amazing headphones but if you're willing to spend more than $30 there are much better headphones out there. They are definitely the best headphones you'll get for $30 dollars.

    They feel like clouds in my ears but there is an obvious imbalance of sound

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    I love these headphones because they are so comfortable however there is one problem. These headphones (at least mine) have an imbalance of sound meaning one earpod is louder than the other. I have 2 pairs of beats and I have decided to switch back to them.

    Headphone Jack

    • Written by from Pahrump

    The sound is very good, especially for the price, and they are a thousand times better than the old earphones, but my only complaint is the jack. The headphone jack that goes into your iPhone/iPod, etc., bends and that affects sound after a while. Give it a stronger jack and this will seriously become the best pair of headphones I've ever had.

    Amazing Sound!!

    • Written by from Erbil

    Apple has done a really good job (as usual) in making an amazing piece of hardware.

    - Sound is amazing (Rich Balanced Bass + Very good Mids + amazing highs)
    - Nice bigger in-line remote
    - Nice Case (although I don't use it)
    - Looks Durable and very precise built
    - Delivers the Audio Quality of In-Ears but they don't seal like them
    - I had to do a custom silicon mold (to hold them in my ears, because of my ears cavity shape)
    - I gave 4 Stars, because I wish they had an optional silicon fit, to fit ears like mine!

    I'm using them instead of the (Apple in-ears), for music, movies and even gaming.

    People who know me took my recommendation and bought them, and they are very satisfied.

    These ear buds correct a particular flaw in all previous Apple ear buds, namely audio direction. Old Apple ear bud speakers were directed towards the center of the skull, essentially just facing skin and cartilage. These direct the audio slightly forward, more directly towards the ear canal as it should be. Noticeable difference.

    Impressed but can't run

    • Written by from Oak View

    The sound quality is far superior to the previous iteration. I enjoy the new features and the limited noise leakage. The downside, I cannot run with these without them falling. With that being said, they are far more comfortable than the old ones.

    Fantastic Improvement Over Previous Model

    • Written by from Summerville

    These came with my iPhone 5, and while I already have a pair of quality headphones (Klipsch Image S4i), Apple Earpods are significantly more impressive than the tired-but-true Earphones from the 2000's.

    The remote and microphone speak for themselves; both work very well. The Earpods are very impressive in the way they handle Mids (Treble and Bass being on each end of the spectrum). As with its predecessor, the Earpods lack bass, and seem to have difficulty handling extreme trebles. However, the overall sound quality is very nice for Apple 'phones, and I would be hard-pressed to find a better sounding pair for the price. Not to mention, these are significantly more comfortable to wear than the Earphones.

    I recommend listening to these genres while using the EarPods (w/o EQ):
    Rock/Progressive Rock
    House/EDM/Trance (this is because these subsets of Electronic music aren't entirely bass heavy)

    I do not recommend the following types of music while using the EarPods (w/o EQ):
    Dubstep/Electronic (that's bass heavy)
    Thrash/Industrial/Punk Metal

    Properly good product

    • Written by from Dallas

    I had accidentally blasted this on full for like a split second but since the new speaker cones are made out of paper it didn't blow like the plastics one do. I think now that it sounds good your music better be clear! I hate the hissing noise that I now notice because I can actually hear it.

    Could be better

    • Written by from Ankeny

    Very good sound quality but lots of sound gets in and more gets out, comfortable but only for so long, to hard, don't fit right, speakers go on and off, other than that, nice sharp bass and good echo, can get very loud, and most usually have good sound quality. To be better the shape could be changed a little, gel instead of plastic, better speakers, louder, less escaped sound, clearer sound and better listening quality. Sorry if this review is bad i think highly of apple and love the products just trying to help apple help the buyers!

    Mic and volume

    • Written by from Taytay

    I got a problem with my earpods, we know that if we press twice it should move to the next song, but sometimes it is not accurate, it stops when I press twice. Is it really that? But overall, the design is very comfortable and presentable. Clear and loud sounds produced.

    the best earbuds that I've ever used.

    • Written by from Allentown

    I plugged them up plugged them in and I was astounded by the sound. It was really clear and it delivered a great bass. Then I got an itch to try something new so I went out and brought a couple of different earbuds to see the differences. The earpods from Apple were better than or on par with earbuds that cost way more. Needless to say I returned them and I'm back with my earpods.

    The new ear pods are phenomenal. The sound is rich, crisp, and the sound is so well distributed that I can hear things with these that I never heard before in the same song with other earbuds. They make me feel like I am able to enjoy my music at a deeper level.

    The fit is interesting, I wasn't sure at first but now I love them, they stay in place and fit well.

    These earpods are good for sound and bass but ....... After a few hours they shock my ears nothing serious but I would prefer ear pods that don't shock my ears.

    These headphones are well worth the $29 dollars that they are. The sound is incredible; I can hear every part of my songs and it feels like heaven. Plus, they stay in my ear far better than the regular Apple headphones or any for that matter. The case is very adorable and portable and it saves me the trouble of getting a tangled mess.

    I bought these headphones on my birthday this past Black Friday for $22. I had my original pair until this month. I did trade them in for new ones at the store because it began to spark and sting my ear which brings me to a rating of 4 out of 5.

    Very good, but not great. Nice sound, has design flaw.

    • Written by from Northampton

    SUMMARY: The earpods are a much needed improvement from Apple's previous earphones. They offer truly great sound for the price but the design doesn’t fit as advertised.

    DETAILS: When you compare the sound of these earpods to premium sound alternatives (Bose, etc.), you will get just as good sound but at a very attractive price. I use the earpods pretty much everywhere: the gym, while waiting at an appointment, when I’m out and about...wherever I want without a problem. But I must comment on the disappointment I feel with the fact that, just like the previous earphones, the earpods still fall out of my ear. I’m not alone in having this experience. And what got me really disappointed was that they were advertised to stay in the ear better. That has not been my experience. However, if you want a really great listening experience, and don’t mind occasionally having to put the earpods back in your ear...purchase the earpods! My recommendation to Apple is that they have something similar to the Bose StayHear® clips.

    Overall good, but could use improvement

    • Written by from New York

    These earphones are great. The sound quality is so much better than the old ones, and others can't hear what you are listening to (like the old ones). However, I do find that these earphones don't last very long. Apple should find a way to improve durability so that they last longer.

    Good Set

    • Written by from Norfolk

    These are a way better set of head phones then previous sets that Apple was distributing with there devices. They fit well and don't fall off when I run. Sound quality is not great, but its not horrible. There don't have much base, but they are clear. I would definitely recommend these to anyone.

    Best in it's class.

    • Written by from Cortland

    These earbuds are very fairly priced, I've owned every pair of Apple headphones and these are by far the most comfortable, best sounding, and best designed. I'd compare these earbuds to some similar priced models by AKG and Audio-Technica. Sure there is better stuff out there but in THIS class in THIS price range they are totally worth it. Bass is exceptional, mid's are present and sound great and highs are brilliant. I give them my seal of approval!

    sound quality great but...

    • Written by from Monticello

    other than the great sound quality and the very handy mic and remote, it tend to slip off your ear and it only last for about 4-5 months and the right speaker is starting to stop working maybe thats just me but its pretty great.
