    Wow

    • Written by from Newbury Park

    Wow! This is a huge leap forward from the standard apple earbuds that came with the old iPods and iPhones. I have an iPod 4g and this works much better than expected. The fitment is much better than the old ones. On the old ones, if you shake your head a lot, they will come out. On the new ones, if you shake your head a lot, they will never come out. What I also like is there are no more rubber caps. The old rubber caps get ruined and they fall out leaving you with the scratchy white part out. My favorite thing I like about these is the travel case. No more broken earbuds and tangled earbuds. Apple said that it fits MOST EARS so don't rant if it doesn't fit please. Some people said that the old ones fit better. Go ahead, use the old ones if they fit better. 75% of the people that have the new ones got it to fit really good. Go ahead, use the new ones if they fit better. Hope you have good luck with these. Bye!

    Apple EarPods fit better REVERSED!

    • Written by from LOS ANGELES

    Get this: No doubt these things sound better than the previous EarPods. But unlike the previous EarPods which fit my ears perfectly, these fall out no matter how hard I shove them into my ears. Horrible horrible fit.

    Weirder still, when I reverse them, left to right ear, right ear to left, they fit PERFECTLY! Snug, better sounding, comfortable fit.

    But my OCD can't allow me to fully enjoy the experience of listening to music 'backwards'.

    Has anybody had a similar experience?

    The most amazing earphones I've ever used.

    • Written by from FORT RUCKER

    The new Apple EarPods are fantastic! They fit perfectly I can't believe it, the bass has tremendous sound and is great. They are really loud and super comfortable. If these were $80 I'd still buy them. You can't even tell they're in your ear. I love them so much!! I just hope they don't break fast. Great great job apple. Now I really believe you've scanned 100's of ears and taken 3 years to perfect them. Great job apple! The best company on this planet... Ever! <3

    The best earphones EVER for $30!

    • Written by from Georgetown

    The first time I put these on, I went "WOW". I actually took them off and put on my other Apple earphones and replayed the same song just to compare the quality. The music is just so much more beautiful, bass-rich and great-sounding. Then I started promoting these earphones to everyone I know by letting them listen to the same song with all 3 Apple earphones I own - the ones that come with each iPod, the In-Ear Headphones with remote & mic and the latest Earpods. Needless to say, the sound is undeniably impressive with the Earpods and the best thing is it costs the SAME as the normal earphones! The box it comes with is a nice plus - I store my Earpods back inside them in order to cary them around in my purse. Great innovation and huge improvement on an essential accessory, Apple!

    Good sound with comfort

    • Written by from Jamesport

    Who knew an ear bud would make my iPod Shuffle sound more crisp and bass more powerful. More comfortable than previous ear bud. Have to see if it passes the run and gym test.

    Don't stay in the ear

    • Written by from North Royalton

    When will Apple get the point that slippery smooth plastic earbuds will slide out of the ear just like that original. You need some rubber backing to help stay in place. I returned mine after one hour of trying these...Very disappointed in them.

    A Cappella Producer Very Impressed

    • Written by from De Pere

    I own a small studio and record and produce acoustic instruments and a cappella groups so I know when something sounds good. While the bass is a bit hyped on these, they do sound very good, and for $30?!? I don't think you can beat them. The sound probably also depends on the resonating cavity of your ears, but for me they sound great. Loving them.

    Marvels.

    • Written by from Houston

    These $29 little wonders can honestly compare to your run of the mill $100 - $120 headphones. I was astonished when these pods fit perfectly in my ears, and took me on a musical adventure. They almost seamlessly fit in your ears and when your music is playing you forget you have them in. This to me is one of the hardest things to perfect when engineering earphones.

    True simplistic marvels.

    Very cool earphone

    • Written by from IRVINE

    I ordered this yesterday and shipped 2hrs later. Using the default shipping method, but got it today (live in CA). Shipping is really fast. The streamline style is really cool, like something from science fiction. The quality is amazing, too. I just listened 1 hr, it's not in its best condition, but it is already very good. Enjoyable sound, not easy to slip out from the ears. Pretty cool Earbud!

    Too Loose

    • Written by from East Granby

    I got these with my iPhone 5 and they are just too Loose in my ears. I don't feel I have huge ear canals or anything but these just don't fit right. I with they came with some kind of adapter wraps for different ear sizes.

    Best $130 headphones ever worth twice the price!

    • Written by from Corona

    Okay now that I have your attention, these are simply the absolute best $29 headphones ever made period end of paragraph!

    The sound is phenomenal! They outperform my Kilcash S4 and my Bose MIE2 headphones In sound quality. The bass Is like it is coming from a studio over the ear headphone, the highs and mids are crisp and very well pronounced. They are very light and comfortable, hardly noticeable in that

    The fit is hit and miss, some people may find them great others may have trouble. I fall into the middle my left ear fits perfect my right ear occasionally falls out.

    Give these headphones a try they truly are a product that would make Steve Jobs proud!

    I'd like to like these earpods

    • Written by from Sydney

    I've always had trouble with the original round Apple earphones. From the iPhone 3 to 4S, I could never get them to fit into my ear and sit naturally. They would always sit at an odd angle and let the sound leak out (resulting in very tinny audio).

    My other alternative was to mash the earphones into my ear, but this was always a temporary solution as the earphones would eventually pop out again.

    In short, these earpods suffer the same issue as the original earphones. They're too large and refuse to sit comfortably in my ear.

    I've watched videos of people placing these earpods in their ears and they seem to fit very comfortably and snuggly, but they just don't work for me.

    Of my experience with these earpods so far -- The audio quality is great, and there's a massive reduction in the noise that comes from handling the cable.

    But all of these positive points mean nothing if the earpods don't fit in my ear.

    Apple needs to make a SMALLER version of these earpods -- Based on the reviews i'd be happy to pay a premium for them, so long as they fit. As for now, i'm sticking with my Sennheiser 598 headphones, as no earphone on the market seems to fit me correctly.

    Best Earphones in the Market by Far!

    • Written by from Markham

    These new earphones are great they do preform better then the last earphones Apple had. These new earphones do stay in ones years when walking and running, specially for a short sprint to catch the bus. They also do not hurt after having them on for a long period of time. I have them on for about 5 hours every day with the music on full blast and my ears do not hurt at all after that... The sound is amazing and much better then expected, the bass is great and feels as if one has a good pair of headphones on. I listen to a lot of dubstep and skrillex and this earphones get the sound perfectly! and if it can be this good for this type of music then it must be amazing for all genres.
    Definitely worth 40 bucks! The price is way to low for such great; quality, sound and performance.

    Apple Earphones

    The sound is great, although in comparison to the previous generation its just a bit different. However, the fit is terrible. The buds are constantly slipping out. I feel as though the fit might be too big.

    Very surprised

    • Written by from Palos Park

    I picked up a pair today at the Apple store. I didn't expect much, but I couldn't resist opening them and trying them before we even left the mall. These are head and shoulders better than anything in the price range. A 10X improvement over the originals and better than more expensive pairs as well.

    The best earphones Apple ever made.

    • Written by from Toronto

    Yes, these are NOT perfect, but they are really really good. When i got my iPhone5, i was sceptical to try yet another Apple's attempt at earphones. I am glad i did. The bass sounds beefy, the mid-high range sounds good (not perfect).

    Overall, Apple finally made earphones that don't need to be replaced with a purchase of a new iPod. Even as a $30 earphones - they are a pretty good deal. Obviously there are better earphones... that cost twice as much, but for $30 - worth it.
