    I think most of these positive reviews are written by apple themselves. these headphones are amazing for the first month then after that they break. the cord is not durable and the headphones lose their sound. Especially, paying $29 for these is not reasonable at all. I wish apple would have let me know how quick their things break

    Terrible EarPods!

    • Written by from Gainesville

    I received the EarPods with my iPhone 5S. I opened the package today to use them for the first time. I plugged them into my iPhone and the left side doesn't work at all, as in, there is zero sound. The right side works nice, but why would I only want to listen to music in one ear? I've had the iPhone 5S for less than a month and I also own a Macbook Pro, iPad mini, and Apple TV. I have also owned an iPhone 4S and iPod Touch. This is the first time I've had an issue with an Accessory and seriously? It doesn't work right out of the box? Apple, you can do better than that!

    New earpods - poor design

    • Written by from Baltimore

    Not sure what the rave is about these new earpods. They are the most uncomfortable and painful earpods I've ever worn. I couldn't enjoy the better sound long enough before yanking them out of my ears. The hard shell does not conform to the opening of the auditory canal.

    They hurt.

    • Written by from New York

    These earpods hurt my ears and scrape after an hour. Apple: Please continue making the old earbuds. They were not painful and fit better. Please provide them as an alternative.

    Fall out constantly

    • Written by from Redwood City

    Hard it say if the sound is good or bad because they don't stay in my ears. Save your money and buy something from an audio company.

    Not happy����

    • Written by from riverside

    ��I HATE THESE EARBUDS!!!!!!�� They are the most uncomfortable and oddly shaped earbuds ever!!! I had to use them since one of the speakers blew out on one side of my urbeats that I had. Every time I put these on I have to figure out which way do they go on (since of the stupid shape of the bud itself) and I always have to adjust it so then I could hear the sound all the way. Not to mention that my urbeats had rubber on the outside and they were the most comfortable when I put them on but when I put on these since there's no rubber or soft part on the outer side it's just only plastic and the plastic rubs the skin on the inside of my ears and it hurts badly. The only thing that Is positive about these is that they do have a control on the cord to change your songs and stuff like that. Sorry apple ���� it's think it's time for an update now even with iOS 8 and the new iPhone coming out soon you should take this consideration of updating these earbuds����

    Lame! Ouch!

    • Written by from phoenix

    These are just terrible! They hurt and they don't stay in place. Came with my iPod and tried wearing them but as previously stated, they slip and fall out (and that's just while sitting at my desk - imagine what'll happen when at the gym).

    One ear pod always seems to break.

    • Written by from Wells

    I've had two pairs of these now, and both pairs have had one of the pods get damaged somehow.

    I'm fairly gentle with them, and I only use them at work so it's not like I'm blaring music through them. I'm usually only at about 1/4th volume on my phone. After about a month with both pairs, one of the pods (Right one on the first pair, left one on the second pair) loses most of its sound. I have checked my sound settings on my phone, but it's not that, because they don't work properly on any device. I'm very disappointed with these.

    Steve Jobs wouldn't have let this slide. RIP

    Handset of the worst quality

    • Written by from SANTOS

    Had never purchased an Apple product, however so much talk that the quality is unquestionable, superior to others, earlier this year bought an ipod 7th generation, paying a much higher than similar, MP3 or MP4 product price.
    I found a really amazing device, but that did not come with controls on the headset, even considering the price.
    So, I bought this headset with control and it lasted less than three months, less than 20 days of use, and have an above average care with my things especially with guys like this.
    So, what I have to say is that in any way the price charged by Apple explains its quality which is surely less than the other products on the market such as Sony, Philips and other less significant.
    Apple never again.

    This are possibly the worst EarPods that I've tried and in my 55 years I've tried a lot.
    Sound is great but the fit could not be worse

    You would think buying a high end smartphone like the iPhone 5s, apple would at least produce a decent pair of headphones. These EarPods were made for dwarfs!!! The cord is hella waaay too short for the average person when you got your phone in your pants pocket making them pop out constantly and tugging on your ear. Garbage...do not buy!!!!

    AVOID - they always fall out!

    • Written by from Hook

    These don't fit - they are nowhere near. The earpods (like those with the iPhone 5s) simply drop out of the ear even when sitting still! Due to the super-poor fit the sound quality is terrible too.

    Not comfortable, stopped working <3mo

    • Written by from Seattle

    I am extremely gentle with my electronics, so it was a big surprise when my earbuds stopped working in less than 3 months. To add to the insult, the earbud that stopped working did not fit into my ear very well, so it was already an annoyance. I have never been happy with Apple's earbuds, and I have had multiple iphones, ipods.

    Extremely uncomfortable

    • Written by from Charlotte

    These, as well as the previous set I had, are extremely uncomfortable. They will not stay in my ears. The sound is horrible. Come on, Apple. You can do better.
