    Earpods work for ears with BIG BIG canals

    • Written by from Plainsboro

    Most of the sound seems to come through the apertures on the side of the pods. however when I insert these into my ears the side apertures are blocked by ear canal walls. I have big ears & relatively big canals and never had any issues with any ear phones so far until this one.

    I need to turn up the volume completely and insert the ear pods with side rotated upwards to get audio to levels that are just audible. But then they keep falling off.

    Apple - i am quite disappointed.

    Poor design

    • Written by from Grand Haven

    I would love to see the designer that came up with the new design try to wear these things without them falling out of his/ her ears. Not good at all. Original earbuds are way better.

    The worst

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    These headphone are standard issue w/ all apple products. If you are lucky it will last a couple of months. If you are extremely lucky maybe even a year. If I purchase a $300 phone or better yet a $2000 computer I would hope the headphone provided would last a decent amount of time. But then the shelf life of an apple isn't long so I shouldn't expect that much from your products.

    disappointed.

    • Written by from Busselton

    I got these earphones and i absolutely hated them that i had to get a pair of the old ones of a friend. They were uncomfortable in my ears and they didn't actually fit nicely as i have kind of small ears, i tried just putting up with them but they gave me a blister on my ear because they didn't fit well. Please bring back the old earphones.

    Just Not Worth The Money

    • Written by from Norman

    I bought these things back in mid-February. It's been two months and the right EarPod is dead.

    Two. Months. At $15 a month, that's not even as good as some of the cheap third-party in-ear buds.

    Don't waste your money; just go to your local big box store and get some cheap ones there and you'll already have saved money.

    Does not fit women's ears!

    • Written by from Bay City

    I couldn't stand the previous version of apple's earbuds, was excited when I got the new style with my iPhone 5s yesterday. I was impressed by the packaging of the earbuds, thinking how convient this would be to keep in my purse, and impressed at the sound quality. They are too big for my ears, no matter if I keep my face totally still and sitting on the couch they fall out, they fall out walking around the house, there is no way to get them to stay. I'll stick with my Yurbuds which have a similar shape but actually fit women's ears, and have adjustable sizers.

    The mic won't last

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    Less than six months in the mic is broken. I can hear sounds, but can't control volume, etc., and no one can hear me. I tried blowing every crevice out with canned air. No lint in the port, either. And what everyone else said about discomfort and earaches. They better replace them or I'm gonna get temperamental.

    Very uncomfortable

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    Most painful earbuds I've ever owned. They don't fit properly and are too large. Another failed attempt by apple to change something that was already designed well.

    A Pox on this Garbage!

    • Written by from Naples

    I hate these things.

    I hate them, hate them, HATE THEM.

    After my decent (for the price) earbuds died in a horrible dancing-chimp incident, I endeavored to replace them once I regained the use of my kegs. The old style being unavailable, I ended up almost wasting 30-something bucks on these, but decided to shoplift them instead.

    The sound is awful. The bass pounds my head unless I have the volume at the very minimum, and even then all I can hear is that dåmned thumping. The treble and mid-range are completely drowned out on this aural aberration, yet everyone praises the sound quality?!

    Is "dat bass" all you bacon-flakes care about anymore? What about Bob? Whatever happened to Robot Jones? Who am I? Does my shirt even exist? Bottom line, these things are bad. They make me wanna go out and set things on fire. Normally, I just wanna burn things in the comfort of my own home.

    If Sonic the Hedgehog taught us anything, it's this: "You're too slow!"

    Come on Apple, step it up.

    Good sound terrible fit

    • Written by from Kamloops

    They have great sound but they don't fit worth a dam. Keep the earbud and lower the price of the phone by $35.

    Don't like them

    • Written by from Whitehorse

    These EarPods must have been designed by a man and never tested on women. They are way too big which make them fall out easily and are very uncomfortable to wear. Definately not fit for smaller ears. I gave them away to a male friend of mine, he absolutely loves them. I wish I felt the same about it :(

    They were good... Until I could only hear in one ear. Within months of listening my headphones broke. Now I only have 1 ear to listen with

    Good sound, terrible fit

    • Written by from Federal Way

    While the sound quality is fantastic, that's a completely useless feature when I can't keep them in my ears. If I stay absolutely still, not even swallowing, I can keep them in for more than a minute. Otherwise, I can't get them to stay in my ears at all unless I grind them so far into my ear I think they're touching my brain. Completely useless product for me

    ok but dodgy

    • Written by from Brisbane

    bought this and the quality of the sound and the design is great but lasts for 3 months because one of the earpods lost sound and got it replaced and now my second set is completly dead. ive replace 2 sets for the passed 3 to 4 months.

    my Sony earphones lasts longer and got it for $8

    very pricey for $40 at the apple store, you can find it cheaper for $20 to $30 at JB or Kiosk

    Broke after 3 days

    • Written by from Visoko pri Poljanah

    When I got them i was very happy. but as soon as i tried to put them in my ear i found out that they don't fit. They constantly fall out. Because I didn't have any other earphones at the time i used them the first days but the left earphone stopped working. It randomly turned on sometimes but stopped quickly. I must say I'm dissapointed.
