    Not for Exercise Use

    • Written by from Edinboro

    These EarPods work fine while I'm sitting still, but I mainly use headphones to listen to music on my iPhone while tracking my exercise workouts. When I'm running they will not stay in my ears. Every 3 to 5 steps they fall out.

    Broke

    • Written by from Frenchtown

    Loved these headphones but they broke within about a month and a half of getting them. The sound quality is great for 30$ but if I have to buy a new pair every other month I'd rather get another kind entirely.

    malfuntion

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    IVE had them for a little over a month and just last week the side with the mic completely went dead. I lost control of it. Only the left side works. i took good care of them. Now its just a waste of money.

    Loose and Slippery

    • Written by from Markham

    The sound quality and the ability to control the volume and song play is great but the the ear buds keep slipping out of my ear. Maybe if it wasn't such a smooth surface around the area that goes into your ear or if they provided textured "bumpers" that you could cover the bud with to help keep them in place. This is a huge disappointment because it means I can only rely on them to stay securely in place when I'm sitting at the office listening to music. Any walking/running means I'll be constantly fumbling and pushing them back into my ear. These earpods would've been perfect otherwise.

    ehhhhh

    • Written by from Torrance

    kind of a let down. apple has been all about how ears are shaped weird and why would you want headphones that are circular when ears aren't circular, but these headphones fall out of my ears constantly. i had to buy different ones because the slightest touch to the cord would make them fall out of my ear. unless they give you them for free with a new device i wouldnt suggest buying them. that being said i will say that the sound quality is pretty good.

    Poor quality - don't last long

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I got these with my iPhone 5 last winter and now only 1 of the earbuds works. When they did work, I compared them to the old apple earbuds I had lying around and found the older ones to have a slightly richer sound quality to them (maybe something to do with the bass levels), Overall sound is pretty good (when it works) and I do like the in-ear feature to prevent leakage. I just wish they were made with higher quality standards and built to last (the old ones did last much better). I'll probably end up replacing them so...maybe apple is okay with the quality being poor.

    Horrible size, great sound

    • Written by from Lacombe

    I recieved these with my new iPhone 5. I love the sound output from these, however, as I have tiny ears, these either fall out constantly, or if I do manage to keep them in for any period of time, start to hurt my ears after just a few minutes of wear.
    I wish they were just a bit smaller and had a slight rubbery/grippy texture on them to prevent them from slipping out.
    They do have really great sound though. :( too bad that I can't use them.

    Right side shorts out

    Got these with I-phone 5. There is some sort of short in volume on right side. Works sporadically. Worked great for a about 1 week.

    :/

    • Written by from morristown

    i bought 2 pairs from the apple store, with the first pair within a month the right earphone stoped working, and honestly their great headphones! if you have both of them :(, with one it sounds very obsolete, and it made it harder for me to hear out of my left ear. With the second pair i was much more careful with them,and the right earphone, AGAIN stop playing music. now i do not have headphones :(. and if it helps, i only used the ipod 4th gen with them. strangely enough the controller (witch is located on the right side) still works on both. i hate to say this (because i really like the company) but i see why so many people hate apple :/.

    Great while they lasted

    • Written by from Lexington

    I got these for Christmas, and they sound great! Definitely a step up from the old stock earphones that would come with iPhones and iPods. These Earpods fit my ears well and rarely fall out. The mic quality is also pretty good and I can get a good sound without having to hold it up to my mouth. My favorite part of these EarPods are the volume control. The controls are built nicely and I have no problem pausing and playing tracks. Skipping tracks can be either a hit or a miss, sometimes it skips, sometimes it just ends up pausing the song.
    What I don't like is just a few days ago the right ear stopped working and I can only hear sound coming from the left EarPod. This is pretty disappointing and I was hoping this wouldn't happen like it has with other Apple earphones. Alas, for $30, these aren't so bad. I'd definitely recommend them.

    Headphones

    • Written by from cocoa

    Got them out of the package and the wires were showing a little. Then started using them and now one headphone doesn't even work. They only lasted a few months, but they sound good.

    Good but Cheap Material

    • Written by from Elmwood Park

    The sound is great. The Remote and Mic keeps on breaking. The remote was causing crackle and the wires broke off. On my second pair and the Remote and Mic broke again.

    Good if free but...

    • Written by from Peterborough

    They are OK, and good looking, but the special features (mic etc.) only work on newer i-products. Also, the cord is too short (not practical to use with my desktop at all). Sound is good, but does not compare to Bose buds.

    These headphones are so uncomfortable! I can only where for a short time before they start hurting and irritating my ears. I thought apple would come out with more comfortable ones!

    Good sound but extremely uncomfortable

    • Written by from Woodbury

    These have good sound and they stay in my ears better than the old pair of headphones but these earpods are SO EXTREMELY uncomfortable. I can only wear them for a short amount of time and then when I take them out, my ears ache. I've only ever bought apple headphones and hate buying another brand, but unless the design gets redone, I don't believe I will be buying another pair.

    Great sound, but...

    • Written by from Columbus

    All the hooplah from Apple about how it's shaped to fit the ear and yet this thing is uncomfortable as it gets! Would it kill Apple to use a little foam or rubber for comfort's sake?

    Sound is great, but I just can't wear these for more than 10 minutes, so pretty worthless to me.I gave it 2 stars for the sound quality, deducting 3 stars for lack of comfort.

    Terrible

    • Written by from philadelphia

    These are the cheapest, most uncomfortable earphones I have ever tried. They are painful to the inner ear and the cord shorted out the very day I recieved them and tried them with my iPhone. I replaced them right away with a much better and comfortable pair of Sony earphones.
