    Alright for the Price

    • Written by from Saint Michael

    These headphones don't sound nearly as great as the Audio Technica ath-m50 or other quality over-ear headphones. However, if you compare them to much more expensive ($100) in ear headphones, such as urbeats, they sound decent. Like beats headphones, the bass is somewhat distorted and flooded, and the treble is muffled. On the other hand, they aren't sealed, so the bass had to be exaggerated to be maintained. The mids do sound quite good so that is a plus. For the fit, they don't fall out of my average ears with casual use, but I wouldn't suggest them for exercise. Overall, a huge improvement over the last stock apple headphone.

    These are THE BEST headphones you can get for $30 bucks!! Sound quality is top notch but, I have only has mine for a year now and the pin has broke , I'm very upset!! Apple needs to put more effort in the quality if their accessories, don't get me wrong the sound is amazing just the quality of the product is not!

    Great headphones and super durable!

    • Written by from Fleetwood

    They are an obvious leap forward compared to the old Apple earbuds. The bass is much fuller and the tones are much crisper. Although they don't fit my ears perfectly (the right earbud has a habit of falling out), they are quite comfortable to wear. I was also impressed with their durability. I left them in my sweatshirt pocket and ran them through the heavy cycle in the washing machine. Aside from a few dings in the plastic, they dried out and work perfectly!

    Great

    • Written by from Sandy

    Ive had mine for about 3 months and just a few weeks ago, they stopped working and only play music when i press the mic button down. Now i have a piece of tape wrapped around it to keep it on. And just an hours ago my left bud blew. They are great headphones, but they dont seem to last that long

    Awesome sound

    • Written by from harare

    For this size and price I don't think there is a better sound on the market. Across the whole spectrum from jazz to classic right through to rap and pop. Apple did their homework here.You won't be disappointed . Only let down only works with apple products.

    Bang for your buck

    • Written by from CARSON

    For $30, this is worth it. This is better than the standard head phone that come with the iPhones. This is more stable in your ear versus the standard iPhone ear piece. Perfect for driving. If the car windows are down you may have difficulty hearing a phone call. I haven't tried using it while running.

    Amazing sound quality but....

    • Written by from Ofallon

    Apple should keep in mind that not all ears are equal. Though I love the sound quality I find it difficult to keep the earpods in for more than a few hours and I have to adjust them frequently. It would have been nice to have a choice between the earpods and earbuds with the same sound quality.

    Fantastic headphones but not fantastic quality

    • Written by from Peachtree City

    I love these headphones! I have smaller ears and these are the only headphones I have used that effectively block out sound and don't pop out of my ears like most in-ear headphones. I use them four to five times a week for often up to three hours at a time and they never cause discomfort. The sound is good too but after using them for three months I have noticed that the sound can cut out in one ear if you shift a certain way. It's never too much to ruin the experience, it's just annoying when you notice it and makes me wonder how durable these really are. I keep them in the case provided and can't imagine why the sound would do that.

    Big up to apple on the sound quality improvement . Don't change that! Also could you make a pair without the mic and sell it. I only use these for my ipod in the gym . I have no need for the mic etc. I know a lot of people would appreciate it. Thanks!

    Works for me...

    • Written by from Laguna

    I bought the new iPod 5th generation just last week, and I was pretty much excited with the bundled earpods on it, after trying it out, i was astonished with the sound quality. Compared to the old Apple earphones, this is way better, I could even remember back when I was in college I had and iPod shuffle with the old earphones and i really find using it a little rubbish since i could really hear the outside noise; but with this earpods I can really hear the full bass of the songs i listen to. thumbs up to apple for this. The only thing missing with the bundled earpods is the remote. I wish they (Apple) tried to ship those bundled earpods with remote also. nevertheless its still cool.

    These sound much better than my 150 dollar beats tour earbuds. Love them but the remote is pretty breakable

    Perfect but the price is .-.

    Every single detail of the earbuds are fanstastic, they are comfortable and just incredibly great for sound. Problem is.. what's with the price? I don't mind paying this much once in a while but its just too expensive. >.< Anyway maybe 20 dollars should do the trick..

    The sound is very nice and crisp, but the EarPods gives me headaches whenever I put them on for half an hour. They stay in my ear at least.

    They have great sound quality! Better than any pair i have ever had! the only problem is that right ear wire is starting to fade in and out. I take very good care of them putting back in the carrying case it came with and still wires in the right ear are going bad after only a month.

    Excellent sound

    • Written by from Glasgow

    These headphones are amazing, they provide a really good sound for all genres of music. The bass is really good and higher notes also come through well, providing a rich sound. I also like that these headphones are really easy to keep clean. The reason why these headphones only receive 4 stars and not 5 is because the left earpod tends to fall out when I am walking, but that might just be might my ears..

    Surprisingly great!

    • Written by from Phoenix

    After shorting out my iPhone 4 headphones by getting them caught and yanked one too many times (they took a lot of abuse), I tried going back to Bluetooth for a while. I was quickly fed up with the lack of clarity and volume as always, so I ordered a new set of these.

    The design was new since my previous pair, and they looked well thought-out. I've not been the greatest fan of previous Apple mice or iPod/iPhone headphones, but they have really nailed both in their current versions.

    These headphones are very clear with great base, have an open design (not sound isolating) so I can use them while driving, and despite looking thin and fragile they are among the most robust earbuds I've owned from any source. The bud shape may not stick in the ear as efficiently as the rubber type, but they are very comfortable and I can still have normal face-to-face conversations without having to take them out.

    Many naysayers like to joke about the "Apple tax" as an unnecessary premium for the caché of the brand. Those people have rarely owned or appreciated Apple products. Their criticism is true on occasion, but not most of the time -- and definitely not in this case. Subtle design features, like the wonderful rubbery coating on the wires that makes them untangle so easily, are worth the extra cost. These are surprisingly great earbuds that suited my needs perfectly.

    Huge Improvement

    • Written by from Fresno

    Not everyone will think that these are great earbuds, but it's pretty clear that these are better than their previous earbuds. Not bad for $30, and definitely not bad for coming with all iPhones for free.

    I've had these ear buds for a month they are great, but controls don't work on androids. However, the bass is great. The ear buds are so comfortable and don't fall out of your ears.
