    A Pox on this Garbage!

    • Written by from Naples

    I hate these things.

    I hate them, hate them, HATE THEM.

    After my decent (for the price) earbuds died in a horrible dancing-chimp incident, I endeavored to replace them once I regained the use of my kegs. The old style being unavailable, I ended up almost wasting 30-something bucks on these, but decided to shoplift them instead.

    The sound is awful. The bass pounds my head unless I have the volume at the very minimum, and even then all I can hear is that dåmned thumping. The treble and mid-range are completely drowned out on this aural aberration, yet everyone praises the sound quality?!

    Is "dat bass" all you bacon-flakes care about anymore? What about Bob? Whatever happened to Robot Jones? Who am I? Does my shirt even exist? Bottom line, these things are bad. They make me wanna go out and set things on fire. Normally, I just wanna burn things in the comfort of my own home.

    If Sonic the Hedgehog taught us anything, it's this: "You're too slow!"

    Come on Apple, step it up.

    Frustrating

    • Written by from Taunton

    Bought these because I was impressed with the sound quality and the fact that they weren't those horrible in-ear phones that seems to be all the rage nowadays. Unfortunately, they don't stay in your ear for more than 5 seconds! I spend more time trying to stop my earphones falling out than I do listening to music. I'm not sure if it's the mic on the right earpod that's causing it to fall out all of my ear all the time or that they're only designed for certain sizes of ears...either way they're very poorly designed.

    Good sound terrible fit

    • Written by from Kamloops

    They have great sound but they don't fit worth a dam. Keep the earbud and lower the price of the phone by $35.

    Crystal Clear Sounds

    • Written by from Gardena

    The sounds produced by Apple EarPods are crystal clear. When listening my favorite music, at first I could not believe that I was listening the same music. These little headphones bring out all the sounds that I did not hear before. Fantastic!

    There is a catch, however. When the headphones are used on iPhones or iPods, they produce perfect sounds. However, on Mac computers, the headphones generate too much bass. Perhaps, it might have something to do with its software that controls the audio on O/S level.

    Don't like them

    • Written by from Whitehorse

    These EarPods must have been designed by a man and never tested on women. They are way too big which make them fall out easily and are very uncomfortable to wear. Definately not fit for smaller ears. I gave them away to a male friend of mine, he absolutely loves them. I wish I felt the same about it :(

    Won't stay in ear

    • Written by from Melfort

    I cannot get these to stay in my ear . They fall out continually which makes them pretty much useless. The only way these remain in my ears is if I hold them in . Sound was good when I could hear through them

    Incredibly Reliable

    • Written by from Sandusky

    These are the best pair of headphones I've owned. I lost them 4 months ago, right before we had multiple blizzards and snow storms. They sat in the mud, snow, and rain in my yard for 4 months before my mom found them. I popped them in not expecting them to work... They worked like brand new.

    Incredible. The only product I will ever pat Apple on the back for.

    GREAT!

    • Written by from brooklyn

    Let's just say i haven't listened to my BEATS BY DRE (PROS) in 3 months! These are great, plus i feel comfortable walking outside with these headphones instead of my huge BEATS BY DRES. You won't regret it! Get it and buy it now!

    Good until...

    • Written by from Crossfield

    They were good... Until I could only hear in one ear. Within months of listening my headphones broke. Now I only have 1 ear to listen with

    Bad sound

    • Written by from C

    These are horrible with noise isolation. When I put it all the way loud, everyone can hear my music and I could hardly hear any. The only way they work we'll is when I put the right one on the left and the left one on the right, which is very uncomfortable. They are actually really comfortable the right way but with bad sound quality. My two choices with these are either comfortable with bad sound, or uncomfortable with good sound.

    Truly amazing sound for $30

    • Written by from MARINA DEL REY

    This latest version apple buds puts my much more expensive sennheiser's and polk audio's to shame. To my surprise, the sound really came alive with these buds. The highs and mids are cristal clear with a deep tight bass. Hard to believe how much sound I have been missing. The fidelity verses price here is extremely deceptive.

    Great Headphones

    • Written by from Blandinsville

    The Apple EarPods are extremely comfortable and never fall out, which is great for when I run and work out. The sound is very clear and the bass response is impressive for earbuds. I also like the functionality of the in-line mic, which allows you to change the song, restart the song, fast forward, rewind, and hail Siri, all without needing to reach for your iPhone. For $30, you would be hard-pressed to find a better pair of earbuds.

    Good sound, terrible fit

    • Written by from Federal Way

    While the sound quality is fantastic, that's a completely useless feature when I can't keep them in my ears. If I stay absolutely still, not even swallowing, I can keep them in for more than a minute. Otherwise, I can't get them to stay in my ears at all unless I grind them so far into my ear I think they're touching my brain. Completely useless product for me

    Awesome Headphones!

    • Written by from Ione

    Awesome Headphones! They sound great, especially for $30, and have the built in remote and everything. The treble sounds are more articulate, and the bass is more realistic, but not overpowering. I don't think I could go back to standard earbuds again. I lost mine just recently, but am going to buy another pair soon.

    AMAZING , BUT

    • Written by from yonkers

    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!

    I HATE THEM

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I admit the sound quality is great but they are too big for my ears. They start hurting after about 5 minutes. These are the most uncomfortable earbuds I have ever used. I wish Apple would still sell the older ones that came with iPhone 4S and earlier.

    ok but dodgy

    • Written by from Brisbane

    bought this and the quality of the sound and the design is great but lasts for 3 months because one of the earpods lost sound and got it replaced and now my second set is completly dead. ive replace 2 sets for the passed 3 to 4 months.

    my Sony earphones lasts longer and got it for $8

    very pricey for $40 at the apple store, you can find it cheaper for $20 to $30 at JB or Kiosk
