    Didn't last more than 1 month

    • Written by from Madison

    Don't get me wrong, the quality is awesome (probably the best I've had for small headphones) but they only lasted 1 month... I did not drop them or anything but the right ear just stopped working...

    Horrible Horrible

    • Written by from Bronx

    These headphones are the worst. The sound is horrible and the way they fit on your ears is so uncomfortable. I don't recommend these headphones to anyone they are a complete waste of money!!!!

    Faulty Product

    • Written by from San Francisco

    At first these headphones appear to be awesome. Comfortable, good audio, and they stay put when working out with them in. Then the below par durability kicks in. Generally 1 ear will start to drop out and then the other will making these completely useless. This happens with standard use for only a couple of months.

    I've had to return THREE pairs of these. Look into other headphones before buying these!

    Multiple Broken Pairs

    • Written by from New York

    I got these to replace my beloved Apple Earbuds which I would love, until they'd stop working after 6 months or so. I know headphones don't last forever, but at twice the price of Apple Earbuds, I was hoping they'd at least last a year. Well, my first set lost hearing in the left earbud after 4 months. They were under warranty so I asked for a replacement (which they did not make easy since I bought it through Apple), but they did replace them about 2 months later. The new set lost hearing in one of the earphones after a mere 3 months. I'm done. I thought the sound quality was excellent but clearly an unreliable product. It's possible I just got two bad examples, but I'm not going to try again.

    Incredibly uncomfortable

    • Written by from BALLWIN

    These headsets are so uncomfortable - I tried them every way possible on a 4 hour cross-country flight. And as much as I wanted to listen to music - the most comfortable position I could find was still so painful on the ears that I could only go 20 minutes. I ended up throwing them away when I got home. I didn't want to give them away, because that would be like giving away a tool of torture....

    Good while they last

    • Written by from Marquette

    I bought a set in March 2012, and three months later they lost sound in one channel, without being unduly stressed or dropped. Apple.com was kind enough to replace them, and now, two months later the second set failed in the same way. They must be poorly designed and/or manufactured, to fail so quickly.

    I bought a pair of these. One side had no sound and none of the earpads came close to being the right size. A complete failure as far as I'm concerned. The only bright side was that Apple refunded my money with apologies.

    The sound from the working side did sound good.

    horrible build quality

    • Written by from OTTAWA

    Sound is not bad. Fit is a bit uncomfortable if you have small ears. But here's the big problem: the cord's material is too soft and therefore the wires underneath will bend and eventually break... repeatedly. I went through 2 of them in less than a month each. Unfortunately I had purchased them directly from the manufacturer in Europe so the exchange process was a headache and I had to pay for shipping. So I have given up on them. Don't make the same mistake. I can't believe that they are still selling these, they are garbage.

    Ouch - again not for small ish ears

    • Written by from BRISTOL

    The reason why I hate the apple ear buds is because i swear they give me a headache when i'm using them. Maybe the person who reviewed these headphones was right. They're not for smallish ears (I don't think my ears are tiny either). If you don't like apple headphones, you may not like these.

    I changed out the nubby piece so it doesn't hurt being in my ear...and these SOB's fall out when I'm working out non stop. So much so that I had to listen to the crumby gym music instead. I was sooo frustrated. I hate these headphones.

    I bought them because my previous two pairs of jelly types eventually broke, I should just stick to those and spend a little more.

    Cool looking headphones

    • Written by from Columbia

    These are some of the best lookin in ear headphones i have ever seen! When i bought them almost 2 weeks ago, i loved how they matched my hoodie. Guess what tho? I hav since returned them due to a malfunctioning right ear! Already!!! I was an active user of them, but still. Dont believe the ratings that seem more like advertisimg 4 the newly released product. Imma keep it real wit ya!

    I was 1 of the first 2 purchase these after there release. I saw all the wonderfully written reports on the debuting medis plus after i purchased them. I felt good about my purchase, until 2day!

    The medis b4 the plus reviews hav spoke of this problem & it still seems 2 b the case wit this version as well.

    If u want some cool looking headphones these are the 1s! Ppl will ask if they are beats by dre. Lol Good luck 2 the young medis developments. The sound quality could also be better. Thank you apple 4 the return policy. Carrying products like these headphones in store u may want 2 consider extending it tho.
