Rediscover your music.
Put on the Apple In-Ear Headphones, select your favorite track, and hear musical details you never knew existed. It's almost like you're experiencing your music for the first time.
Two drivers in each earpiece.
Each earpiece contains two separate high-performance drivers — a woofer and a tweeter — resulting in rich, detailed, and accurate sound reproduction and amazing bass response for all types of music.
Impressive sound isolation.
Choose from three sizes of soft, silicone ear tips for a comfortable, stable fit. When inserted in your ear, they create a seal that blocks outside noise so you can get the most from your music.
The control capsule located on the cable of the right earpiece includes a microphone and three buttons. Here's what you can do with this convenient remote*:
- Adjust volume by pressing the + and - buttons.
- Control music and video playback — including play/pause and next/previous — by pressing the centre button.
- Record voice memos on supported devices.
- Answer and end calls.
Steel mesh caps for protection.
Stainless steel mesh caps protect the precision acoustic components from dust and debris. You can remove the caps for cleaning or replace them with an extra set that's included in the box.

Excellent price for earphones with two drivers

The trick is to choose the correct e It is difficult to find earphones of this quality for the price especially with a microphone. The trick is to choose the correct ear tip to get a good seal in the ear. If the seal is poor, the bass will be reduced. With a good seal the sound and noise isolation is quite good. …

Great headphones, have lasted well
I've had these headphones since early 2012, bought them on a friends recommendation and I loved the isolation and sound quality. I I've had these headphones since early 2012, bought them on a friends recommendation and I loved the isolation and sound quality. I have had numerous other in-ear sealing headphones, including Sony noise-cancelling and expensive Etymotic headphones. I have found these the most comfortable and easy to wear for long periods, with an easy tonal balance and range that doesn't tire your ears out.
I'm buying a second pair for work now, because they have just the right amount of isolation for reading in the office. …

Beautiful sound, bad plugs (for my ears anyway)
I've tried all 3 plug sizes and they just won't create a seal unless I ram them in and that's just uncomfortable. And even then th I've tried all 3 plug sizes and they just won't create a seal unless I ram them in and that's just uncomfortable. And even then the M/L sizes bounce out from even even the slightest movement while the small ones don't create a seal at all. I can wear them comfortably but then it doesn't make a proper seal and the sound ends up sounding tinny because of it.
That said, the sound quality is excellent when you can wear them properly. Just disappointed that you have to buy your own plugs for a pair of headphones that cost this much. …

bought these when i lost the original buds that came with my iPhone thinking they would sound better, and i did find them somewhat bought these when i lost the original buds that came with my iPhone thinking they would sound better, and i did find them somewhat more comfortable than the stock units. however, i found the sound quality so tinny and seriously lacking on the low end that in less than 20 seconds they were on their way back to the store.
these don't sound any better than the freebies they give away at my office; very disappointing! …

Can you buy replacement ear tips for apple head phones

No, you can't yet, which is really bad PR from my point of view since they are not cheap! I have the No, you can't yet, which is really bad PR from my point of view since they are not cheap! I have them and they are really good, may be the best i ever had in terms of sound quality and comfortability, but i seriously can't believe that MAC will not be aware that the rubber that goes on it needs replacement every several months. The fact that they are not available is really revealing of their intention to make you buy new ones.
As they changed the plug for the Iphone a few years ago when they didn't needed it, now they are coming out with a product that you can't fix. At least up to today! …
