    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.

    Amazing

    • Written by from Kamiah

    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.

    Ah-MAZING

    • Written by from Ash

    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.

    Surely an upgrade

    • Written by from Paros

    Got these with my new ipod touch. It is a clear improvement over the classic we were used to since the first ipod. They are the most comfortable earbuds i have ever used. They just fit in the right spot into my ears. Sound is not bad. Could definately be a lot better. There is actually some base now unlike the previous model. I am sure though that the sound could be a lot better. I expected better from a model 3 years in the works. I would not recommend spending 30 bucks for it yet, as a free pair of earbuds with your new ipod, they are very pleasant and actually much better than any free pair of earphones i ever recieved before with a music device.

    Wow I was Surprised!!!

    • Written by from Amsterdam

    Being that my lab partner of the past two years, initially made a connection off the strength of having the same Mac Pros, I can say whole heartily that I trust his just judgment, but even I was hesitant when he said that these pods, where on par with his $100+ Bose.

    Being that I'm really particular about sound, so much so that I own a $250 pair just for gaming, still after seeing how happy he was i wanted in. Picked them up today and after getting past the difficult packaging they slide gently in my ear, and I was surprised at what was coming thorough these small, comfortable, but hard shelled pods. Really nice bass, and lows, highs a little lacking but really happy with the product.

    Great Job Apple, you amaze once again, with your Engineering and style!

    Best Sound

    • Written by from Laguna Beach

    They really do work much better than the last apple ear buds I used, and now I don't have to turn the volume all the way up to get the full sound. I had no idea what I was missing, and I would recommend these to anyone who has the older model

    My only complaint is that the wires coming out of (and going into) the volume control have little edges that snag on the collar of my dress shirts when I turn my head to the right.

    Pretty good for $30

    • Written by from POINT PLEASANT BORO

    They have really nice sound quality. I used to have SO many problems with other earbuds; the hard plastic ones hurt and the silicone bubble ones constantly fell out. These, however, fit my ear perfectly and haven't fallen out once. I've had them since November, and the only complaint I have is that they shock me CONSTANTLY in the left ear. Really annoying, but I saw that tons of people had the same problem and since it's not damaging to the earpods or my ear, I'm willing to put up with it for the amazing bass. Overall, great headphones for a great price.

    Nice product

    • Written by from Cottekill

    I'm not an audiophile, but I find these earpods to have a much higher quality sound than the Apple earphones they replaced. They fit in my ears securely, never falling out during my runs or other exercise routines. There may be better units available at this price point, but none I've seen have the unique shape of the earpods. I do not like the kind that fit inside my ear canal. They never stay put and I have sanitary concerns. The kind that fit over or around my ears are too bulky and cause sweating during workouts.
    If you're interested in these I suggest buying direct from Apple so you can rest assured your not buying one of the many clever knockoffs out there. It's worth the money for peace of mind.

    Apple EarPods

    • Written by from Atlantic Beach

    The new Apple EarPods are great headphones. I love them. There is only one problem. The 2 places where there is wire mesh allows wax to buildup. The mesh should be level with the surface of the EarPod. Similar to the old Apple earphones. This would keep wax out.

    not for all ears..

    • Written by from Gilbert

    A huge improvement from the original earbuds! However, I guess I have 2 different shaped ears because with all earbuds of any kind, one fits perfectly in my left ear and one always falls out in my right. If you are considering actually buying these separately, try to find a friend that has them so you can try them out and see if they fit in your ears.

    Much improved from the previous model

    • Written by from Richlands

    Overall these headphones provide a very clear and crisp sound with bass that's clean and not overpowering. Comparing these to the previous model would be like apples and oranges as its in a higher class.. I rate it 4/5 due to the fitment being one size fits all but is assumed that the design has to do with it. The inline controls are its short comings as it has you to do a series of multi taps and/or holds to exicute a function. Just one more thing to try to remember and fumble around with. All in all if you like clear, precise sound, these are for you. I would compare the earpods to higher dollar headphones due to the sound quality.

    Price 5/5
    Fitment 3/5
    Sound Quality 5/5
    Controls 2/5
    Design 3/5
