    Best earphones I've ever used!

    • Written by from Wesson

    I got a pair of these with my iPhone 6+ and wasn't expecting much; I thought they looked cool but was expecting tinny sound and poor bass like most other headphones in this price range. Apple outdid themselves with the EarPods; I find myself using them with every device I own! The audio quality is great and they feel extremely comfortable in your ear, and the remote/microphone is handy when out for a run.

    The EarPods do tend to want to slip out of my ear when jogging or running, but that's just because of the shape and size of my ears; not really their fault. Really, that's the only problem I've had with these. They are extremely sturdy and have survived being stepped on, scrunched in a pocket, and dropped without even a scratch. If they ever fail or break on me, and I haven't gotten another pair with a new iPhone by then, I will definitely buy another pair.

    Too fragile

    • Written by from Riga

    Although sound and fit is quite decent the whole assembly is really fragile. At first I noticed a crack on the middle of remote control, which you would push to pause music. Then after some time crack on both earpieces appeared. Considering that, these cracks appeared during normal everyday use I would say, that materials chosen aren't the best suiting ones. If I would have bought these separately, I would be quite disappointed.

    this is great for $30

    • Written by from Lima

    If you want great sound and some pretty good bass you want these they are better the some headphones/ear-buds that are over $100 - $200 dollars i have owned these for 2 or 3 mouths and they have had no problem. they have been in my pocket and places where they should have been destroyed but they are as good as new to this day. they are still giving there great sound and the mic and remote is even better yet helps me so much.

    Wow. Unbelievable headphones

    • Written by from West Simsbury

    I cannot get over the fact that these headphones literally sound just as good as 300.00 Bose or Beats headphones. And for only 30 bucks? My old pair broke because I sat on it wrong and after going through 5 other pairs of headphones that were 10 to 50 bucks that just weren't cutting it, I had to buy another pair of these. Will never buy another kind. 30.00 for a great sound. They are loud, the bass is unreal. If you're disappointed after buying these, I assure you it will not be because the sound is poor quality.

    Would Not Buy

    • Written by from Beaver Dam

    I've gotten two pairs of these and both times the left headphone went silent after a couple months of moderate use.

    FANTASTIC !!!

    • Written by from Wixom

    I've never been able to wear in-ear type of ear buds ... they would always fall out. These stay in & sound GREAT. The mic & other extras are the cherry on the cake. Nice job Apple!

    Great EarPods

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    Love the shape, sound, and quality of the EarPods! Love the name too. Have to get a new pair every 6 to 8 months, that's ok though. Lot longer than any other pair for $30! They are great.

    Good fit and sound, but don't hold up to sweat

    • Written by from Redding

    I wear the EarPods for running. They are comfortable (even when running for 3-4 hours) and have awesome sound quality, but they have a serious design flaw for athletes. If you sweat while wearing them, the sweat runs down the cable and into the remote, causing it to short out. I have gone through 2 pairs so far- first, the remote stops working and ultimately, the right earbud (the one with the remote) goes silent. It would be nice if Apple would either make the remote more durable or offer the EarPods without a remote at all.

    BAD EARPHONE EVER!! DON'T BUY IT

    • Written by from Torrance

    This earphone came with my Iphone. Since the first time I used it I hated. It is too big for the ear, therefore it causes a lot of pain if you use for more than 5 minutes. Other fact about it is that the sound quality is horrible. Besides it is to big to fit into the ear the sound it emits is very low. I HATED IT. I prefer the old earphones apple had, they were way better than these ones. Don't be fool about the good reviews, this earphone is the WORSE one in the market.

    Very comfortable

    • Written by from SLINGERLANDS

    Love these earbuds, much more ergonomic than the older style. My only complaint has to do with the plug end, where it is attached to the device. If they would just make the part you grip when disconnecting a little longer & easier to grip, it would last longer. Or is that the point? Mine are tearing there, from the few times I've slipped my grip as I was disconnecting them.

    Too big for my ears

    • Written by from Santa Rosa

    I can't wear these, they don't fit in my ears and constantly fall out. I loved the old version of this and wished that they carried it since it was smaller. My husband wears these and doesn't have a problem but he has much larger ears than me.

    Compatibility

    • Written by from Victorville

    these are horrible love the sound but apple needs to seriously stop kicking out support for models of the ipod shuffle, first the ipod shuffle 2nd generation with the whole cord switch, and now with the remote on the headphones ipod shuffle 3g should be supported will all apple remotes, if its not compatible then don't make it, because someone payed 50 dollars for an ipod does not mean to push them out like of they are not allowed. this is ridiculous apple, send out cases with the remote on them if you want to do things like this. :(

    Uncomfortable

    • Written by from Bergenfield

    These headphone are the most uncomfortable headphones that have ever existed. EXtremmelllyyyyyyyyyy uncomfortable. DO NOT BUY. Yes the sound quality is very good, but what is the point of having headphones if you have to take them off after using them for 5 minutes. Dissatisfied.

    much improved, thank you apple

    • Written by from Hayward

    i've owned 3 pairs of brand new apple earbuds in the past and the previous two have sucked. i was lucky if they lasted 2 months before they broke. this third pair that came with my iphone 5s have lasted me almost a year and still work! i don't know if it's a fluke or if apple has finally fixed these things, but i'll definitely buy another pair if it means this kind of longevity. also the remote control is awesome and makes things easier.

    Good sound but extremely uncomfortable

    • Written by from Kennesaw

    These earphones have very good sound. They may even be the best earphones available at this price soundwise. However, they are the most uncomfortable earphones I've ever had. I can not wear them for more than 5 mins.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Seattle

    Worst head/earphones I have ever had. Extrememly painful in the ear after only a few minutes. Falls out due to the weird shape. Weird sound quality - the sound is much deeper with heavy bass. If I use non-apple head/earphones my voice control/siri goes off automatically when I am trying to listen to music.

    You can even put them in the washing machine!!!

    • Written by from Auburn

    Don't underestimate the headphones that come with the iPhone. My daughter left a pair of headphones in her jeans and I inadvertently washed and dried them. Of course I thought they were ruined but I thought I would try them out anyways...they WORK!! Thank you Apple for making them more comfortable to wear too.

    Back to my generic earbuds

    • Written by from Dallas

    I bought my first IPhone last week, downloaded my music on to it and was eager to go for a run using the earbuds that came with the phone. I couldn't really concentrate on the run, though, as the earbuds wouldn't stay in my ears. When I came home, I searched the packaging, sure that somehow I missed some silicon attachments. Nope. What a shame, because when I get them properly placed and don't move, I thought they sounded excellent. They are definitely not "one size fits all."

    Doesn't last 6 months....

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I've bought at least 3 of these and twice they didn't even last 6 months. Unfortunate, because they fit my ears perfectly! Each set began to speed up, slow down, skip, activate suri, pause and play on its own. I know some people mentioned something about moisture, but I've been super careful with my earphones after my first pair crapped out. I think these are fine if you use them once in a while, but I use my earphones 5 days a week (at the very minimum) usually while commuting to and from work. After 3 tries with this, I'm on the lookout for new earphones.

    Disappointing

    • Written by from Somerset

    Recently purchased iPhone 6 & the earbuds that Apple provided with it are very poor fit for my average ears! Agree with those who say they don't stay in. Sitting perfectly still they stay in but turn my head twice & one or the other falls out. Come on Apple who did you test these out on ?
