    very comfortable

    • Written by from Syracuse

    first time in my life I am using headphone for more than 30 minutes without feeling uncomfortable.

    Would be nice if that can come in two sizes large and small..

    Great

    Not only do they look good, they have a comfortable fit and have better sound quality than the previous ear buds.

    Better than last version of apple headphones.

    • Written by from San Clemente

    I previously owned the old headphones that came with the other iPhones. The good of those where that I had a bunch of them but they broke easily. These new headphones do seem that they will be way more durable. I am runner and these stay in my ears a lot better than the old ones. They sound a lot better, control is a lot more responsive, and looker way better. However, one flaw that I am experiencing is that they tend to hurt my ears after wearing them for like 20 minutes or so. The headphones are meant for one size fits most. Unfortunately, since they hurt my ears, then they don't fit me well. They are slightly too big. In my opinion, the best headphones with the same functions are the iMonsters from ibeats. Super comfortable and best sound quality.

    great earphones - TERRIBLE CASE

    • Written by from toronto

    don't get me wrong - i LOVE the headphones, for the price - the are great. but why provide a case if its completely irritating to put back in???

    i travel a lot and always put away my earphones in a case - i was actually excited that these new earpods came with their own - but unfortunately it takes a good couple minutes of finagling to squeeze them back in.

    not the best design. not trying to be picky - but hey, if you're gonna provide a nice little case - make it so i can put it back in easily and efficiently.

    pretty good :)

    • Written by from Palisade

    So i really like these EarPods. Apple did a great job and the sound is amazing! It doesn't leak like in the original headphones. The acoustics are fantastic and i am really impressed with the bass sound on them. The only bad thing is that i just bought them less then a month ago and one of the ears has a crack in them :( so not very durable.

    Worth every penny

    • Written by from Oconto

    Absolutely worth every penny. I really don't think you can do better for $30. The only complaint I have is that the pause/play button's feedback isn't always correct: you can easily push light enough that it will click but not register anything. It's bad enough that if I try, I can do it almost every time. So...click hard: problem mostly solved.

    Really good headphones

    • Written by from Pasadena

    Great improvement compare to the old Apple headphone. Fit is MUCH more comfortable, does not hurt my ear anymore. I have not wear it for a super long time yet, but so far so good. Sound is also much better. Pretty good bass, sound clarity is pretty good. Overall much better in every way than the old one.

    I still don't think it is as good as my Bose MIE2 headphone in sound quality. I think the Bose has a better, stronger bass. More detail in the sound and even better clarity and natural sound. But that is about a 120 bucks headphone, about 4x more in price. Overall this new earPods are very good! I have tried other in ear headphones in the 100 dollar range from Klipsch, Sennheiser, and Beats, and imo, these EarPods are better. Much better in comfort and better sounding. Most in-ear headphone, despite what reviews or others say, do not have good bass.

    With these earPods, I don't feel like I am wearing a headphone when I wear it and that is a good thing. Only other one I feel as comfortable is my Bose MIE2 headphones.

    Great sound quality, broke after 6 weeks!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I love these headphones, they're a great upgrade over the standard apple earbuds. Mine broke after 6 weeks. The remote started triggering play/pause by itself. Thankfully apple replaced them for me! I hope to enjoy this pair longer!

    Good price, comfortable

    • Written by from Ferndale

    I must have strange ears to fit. The round earbuds would NEVER stay in my ears, and hurt after less than an hour. I've tried them with various sized pads and cuffs. Meh! The in-ear earbuds cut out the outside sound, but then my own breathing is a distraction. And they fall out after a few minutes. I even have trouble getting those spongy earplugs for noise reduction to seat properly.

    These EarPods are comfortable to wear for hours. In fact, I haven't found them uncomfortable at all. They stay put in normal activity. I used them while picking blackberries for hours, but not while exercising. The sound is fine, but they're not headphones. I actually LIKE that I can hear what's going on around me.

    I now own three pairs of these.

    GREAT EarPods!!

    • Written by from Gilroy

    I know not every ear is equal, especially when you're 60 years old. But these EarPods are fantastic in my somewhat failing ears. The mid and high frequencies are crisp and clear, much better than my expensive Bose earphones. The only downside is the bass is not quite as good, but, only slightly. However, overall they're great!!! Highly recommend if your hearing is starting to wane like mine.

    Noticeably better than the previous earphones.

    • Written by from Redondo Beach

    I like these. Much better bass response. Fit my ears perfectly. The clicker has a little more throw so it's easier to double and triple click. The cord is the same length as the previous model. Still not an audiophile experience, but a nice improvement over my previous Apple earphones. And I got them overnight. Bonus!

    What an improvement.

    • Written by from York

    I still can't get this style earphone to stay in my ear. I prefer Apple's dual armature in ear design. However, if you can get this style to stay put, you'll be very happy. The sound quality is much improved from the old style. I also have several high end head sets by Ultimate Ears and Shure. The sound quality from this head set is very competitive. If they would stay in my ear, I would certainly use them.

    Worth it!

    The new earpods are a great improvement over the previous one, especially the build quality and the new design.
    Not the greatest out there, but for $30 - its worth every penny.

    Great Sound, Poor Fit

    • Written by from Seattle

    I love the sound quality, it really is great. The fit needs improvement. As with the other Apple earbuds these keep falling out. I use them for running and I constantly have to adjust them or they fall out. With the older earbuds I used to be able to use those foam sleeves to get a good fit, but those won't work with the new design. The best fitting earbuds I have found so far are the Nike+ Vapor which have an adjustable hook that goes over the top of the ears.

    Great, sort of...

    • Written by from San Antonio

    Love the sound. There is an obvious improvement in the bass over the previous earphones. One ear fits perfectly, but the other ear keeps sliding out. Need to develop some silicone covers to hold them in place.

    So Worth It

    • Written by from montreal

    I just bought these suckers last night and I'm thinking abut buying another pair. So amazing. Sound quality is way better then any headphones i've ver had. One problem is that when i go for a fast run, they can slip out A LITTLE. But still way worth it.

    Fits perfectly and delivers balanced sound quality

    • Written by from Esbjerg

    Good quality for the price. Fits perfectly in my ears and easy to take out if your are interrupted compared to in-ear headphone. Do not fall out while running and walking. You won't regret your buy.

    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.
