    Worth it!

    • Written by from San Francisco

    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.

    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.

    Sound Great/Won't stay in ears while exercising

    • Written by from Vermillion

    These headphones are awesome if you don't plan to move while listening to your iPhone/iPod. I highly recommend Gummies over these if you plan to use them while working out.

    Very little wind noise

    • Written by from Saint Petersburg

    Like to listen to my ipod while riding my mountain bike. These new earbuds allow very little wind noise to interfere with the music. Big improvement over the old 'buds.

    Maybe it's just me...

    • Written by from Waterford

    Maybe it's just me, but these things still do not stay in my ears. They stay in for about 30 seconds or so and then pop out as if they were skydiving and my ears are their airplane. While they're in, the sound is fantastic, but it's not very useful if they don't stay in. Perhaps I'm inserting them wrong, but if so, EarPods/EarBuds/Earphones should not require a user guide. The EarBuds did the same thing and these do have a higher quality sound so they are an improvement, but still don't work for me. I wish the outer layer were done in white PVC foam like Flents Quiet Time Soft Comfort Ear Plugs. They could use a foam that is less dense to prevent the total sound isolation, but still allow the EarPods to form a custom outer shape every time. That would be a winner.

    AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!!

    • Written by from Pembroke Pines

    The design of the product is truly "Ear Shaped". When you have them on you can barely tell they are there and all the sound is concentrated and released straight into the ear canal causing deeper lows, clearer highs and less bleeds making you feel like you are in a live concert. Big leap forward from apples' old headphones.

    Fits perfectly and delivers balanced sound quality

    • Written by from Esbjerg

    Good quality for the price. Fits perfectly in my ears and easy to take out if your are interrupted compared to in-ear headphone. Do not fall out while running and walking. You won't regret your buy.

    Great quality, but one problem

    • Written by from Santa Monica

    I bought these headphones to replace some I had recently lost. They worked much better than I could have expected. The bud fits almost perfectly in my ear, and the sound quality is top notch. The bass was also very good, a nice bonus. The only small issue was the noise cancellation. It is amazing for such a product, but not as good as in ear headphones. Also, if you buy these, you should be careful not to jam them in your ear too hard. I made that mistake and it was not fun.

    Better than before

    • Written by from Germantown

    I've used the previous earbuds for a long time and found their fit and sound quality to be average and did not really justify the 30$ tag. But after using the earpods, i have not had any fitting troubles. It sits in my ear very nicely and comfortably, movement is minimal if any. The sound quality has also improved in clarity quality. The bass is more pronounced now with the addition of the small air vents around the ear pod. I am also very pleased with the feel of the remote, it is much bigger and feels more durable. This can be said for the product overall. At this point, i can say it was a well spent 30$.

    Good quality, horrible fit

    • Written by from Saint-Laurent

    I use these earpod when I'm at the gym running on the treadmill, and I can say that they fit horribly. I have to keep pushing them with my finger or else they fall after 1 minute.
    The sound and build quality is way better than the older version but I will continue using my Monter turbine copper pro.

    Sound and Fit

    The headphones sound better than most in ear headphones in this price range, but they constantly fall out or move out of position.

    Fantastic for $30...

    • Written by from Prairie Village

    I've been looking for a good set of headphones for awhile. Specifically I was looking for an over-the-ear set, but just couldn't find a pair that I wanted to spend more than $150 on. So I heard about these... (okay, I got pulled in from the TV ad). Honestly, the bass is really good and these are much better than the old headphones. I'd say it's worth the money. They are only $30 and come in a case. Win. Win.

    Great sound, still falls out of my ear

    • Written by from Alexandria

    The sound is excellent. The earpods fall out of my ear just as often as the old headphones did. They are more comfortable when they're in your ear though. If they find a way to make them stay in your ear they get 5 stars!

    Muy Totally Awesome!

    • Written by from San Diego

    I appreciate things that are Bueno-Bonito-and Barato. I also like things that have integrity such as products by NAD, Paradigm, and Analysis Plus (Speaker Cables), all in the high end category. My point is that this headphones seemed to have been created with integrity and no lazyness as the latter version. The former ones are smooth, suave, cool, minimal, and amazing!!!
    I hope they fit your ear and enjoy!!!

    WOW. Just wow.

    • Written by from Florham Park

    As a DJ, I appreciate quality sound. I had the Apple In-Ear Headphones, which were very nice because of the noise cancellation, but these little suckers are almost a third of the price for the same quality! Now I don't think Apple's major focus is on headphones, but after hearing these I have to re-think that statement! The bass is incredible for non in-ear, and they are not junky at all. They fit my ears perfectly, which I thought might have been a problem, and they blast music right into your ear canal so you can listen to them on a lower volume and have great bass. I used to use bass booster which I now turned off because without it they preform as if it were on. Voices are clear, basses are low and not distorted, just awesome! Another concern people had was with running if they would come out. I haven't tried this yet considering I got them about an hour ago, but they seem pretty snug once you get them in. Overall, great work, Apple!!

    Wow

    • Written by from Newbury Park

    Wow! This is a huge leap forward from the standard apple earbuds that came with the old iPods and iPhones. I have an iPod 4g and this works much better than expected. The fitment is much better than the old ones. On the old ones, if you shake your head a lot, they will come out. On the new ones, if you shake your head a lot, they will never come out. What I also like is there are no more rubber caps. The old rubber caps get ruined and they fall out leaving you with the scratchy white part out. My favorite thing I like about these is the travel case. No more broken earbuds and tangled earbuds. Apple said that it fits MOST EARS so don't rant if it doesn't fit please. Some people said that the old ones fit better. Go ahead, use the old ones if they fit better. 75% of the people that have the new ones got it to fit really good. Go ahead, use the new ones if they fit better. Hope you have good luck with these. Bye!
