    Quality of the sound is so awesome there is no doubt why you shouldn't buy one.

    Really good headphones

    • Written by from Pasadena

    Great improvement compare to the old Apple headphone. Fit is MUCH more comfortable, does not hurt my ear anymore. I have not wear it for a super long time yet, but so far so good. Sound is also much better. Pretty good bass, sound clarity is pretty good. Overall much better in every way than the old one.

    I still don't think it is as good as my Bose MIE2 headphone in sound quality. I think the Bose has a better, stronger bass. More detail in the sound and even better clarity and natural sound. But that is about a 120 bucks headphone, about 4x more in price. Overall this new earPods are very good! I have tried other in ear headphones in the 100 dollar range from Klipsch, Sennheiser, and Beats, and imo, these EarPods are better. Much better in comfort and better sounding. Most in-ear headphone, despite what reviews or others say, do not have good bass.

    With these earPods, I don't feel like I am wearing a headphone when I wear it and that is a good thing. Only other one I feel as comfortable is my Bose MIE2 headphones.

    Too Slippery in the ears

    Although the sound effect is good, it keeps falling off my ears.

    Not 100%

    • Written by from Tallahassee

    These earpods are stylish enough. If your sitting listening to music and such, they are great. But, once you start doing any exercise activity they pop out of the ear from sweat and movement. I always wondered why the deleted the foam pads from there older model.

    Are they small or my ears big?

    • Written by from Pasadena

    They sound and work great. Be better if they didn't fall out of my ears when I'm sitting and turn my head.

    Sound great...won't stay in place

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    I love the sound quality of the new EarPods but they do not stay in my ear for more than a few seconds before I have to adjust them. I have all but given up on them at this point.

    they don't fit!

    • Written by from New York

    I couldn't find my original iPhone headphones so I decided to try these. I should've known better. I have very small ears and these were big and painful and kept popping out. Maybe they work for you but not for me.

    Great sound quality, broke after 6 weeks!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I love these headphones, they're a great upgrade over the standard apple earbuds. Mine broke after 6 weeks. The remote started triggering play/pause by itself. Thankfully apple replaced them for me! I hope to enjoy this pair longer!

    Ear ache isn't worth the hype

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    I have been using this headphone for the past two days now and there isn't much good as well as bad to report.

    Comfort: Sure the redesign is nice and is slightly a better fit that the previous model but even after I get them settled into my ears for about 15 minutes my ears start feeling sore. I tried to set them in different positions to see which is best but its the same results where my ears get sore. Maybe if I have surgery to remove some my ears' cartilage then the headphones might fit and feel better.

    Sound: Much better: They do have a better frequency response and better dynamics.

    Remote: The finger press response is SO MUCH more better! The clicks feel solid and smooth compared to the previous model where I found myself having to click multiple times for the correct sequence.

    Summary: Good sound with great user experience for the remote and worth the $30 for those reasons. However, its a gamble with comfort; hoperfully you will have the right size ear where they don't get sore.

    Good price, comfortable

    • Written by from Ferndale

    I must have strange ears to fit. The round earbuds would NEVER stay in my ears, and hurt after less than an hour. I've tried them with various sized pads and cuffs. Meh! The in-ear earbuds cut out the outside sound, but then my own breathing is a distraction. And they fall out after a few minutes. I even have trouble getting those spongy earplugs for noise reduction to seat properly.

    These EarPods are comfortable to wear for hours. In fact, I haven't found them uncomfortable at all. They stay put in normal activity. I used them while picking blackberries for hours, but not while exercising. The sound is fine, but they're not headphones. I actually LIKE that I can hear what's going on around me.

    I now own three pairs of these.

    GREAT EarPods!!

    • Written by from Gilroy

    I know not every ear is equal, especially when you're 60 years old. But these EarPods are fantastic in my somewhat failing ears. The mid and high frequencies are crisp and clear, much better than my expensive Bose earphones. The only downside is the bass is not quite as good, but, only slightly. However, overall they're great!!! Highly recommend if your hearing is starting to wane like mine.

    Great Headphones

    • Written by from Mesa

    I am very happy with my Apple EarPods. They fit my ears perfectly, do not fall out and sound great. I have had many, many sets of head phones for my iPhone and these are my favorites. I can see where they would not fit everyone the same but, they fit me perfectly. Congratulations Apple on another great product.

    What an improvement.

    • Written by from York

    I still can't get this style earphone to stay in my ear. I prefer Apple's dual armature in ear design. However, if you can get this style to stay put, you'll be very happy. The sound quality is much improved from the old style. I also have several high end head sets by Ultimate Ears and Shure. The sound quality from this head set is very competitive. If they would stay in my ear, I would certainly use them.

    The new earpods are a great improvement over the previous one, especially the build quality and the new design.
    Not the greatest out there, but for $30 - its worth every penny.

    Great Sound, Poor Fit

    • Written by from Seattle

    I love the sound quality, it really is great. The fit needs improvement. As with the other Apple earbuds these keep falling out. I use them for running and I constantly have to adjust them or they fall out. With the older earbuds I used to be able to use those foam sleeves to get a good fit, but those won't work with the new design. The best fitting earbuds I have found so far are the Nike+ Vapor which have an adjustable hook that goes over the top of the ears.

    Great, sort of...

    • Written by from San Antonio

    Love the sound. There is an obvious improvement in the bass over the previous earphones. One ear fits perfectly, but the other ear keeps sliding out. Need to develop some silicone covers to hold them in place.

    Nice new shape but i think apple need to make an other size for this pods because I'm facing problems fitting them in my ears.
    They don't stay all the time on my ears which makes me not relaxed in them

    So Worth It

    • Written by from montreal

    I just bought these suckers last night and I'm thinking abut buying another pair. So amazing. Sound quality is way better then any headphones i've ver had. One problem is that when i go for a fast run, they can slip out A LITTLE. But still way worth it.
