    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 ?

    Great but....

    • Written by from Ridgefield

    I have had 3 pairs of these and never really had problems until after a lot of usage the sound quality deteriorates as well as the volume. I was really bummed about this and was stuck with them until I got myself a new pair of Beats (A lot better btw...) but I was sad that after spending money buying these they went so quick with usage.

    the worst

    • Written by from glendale

    These are the worst fitting ear buds I have ever had - They constantly fall out - seconds after I put them in! Don't even try walking you wont make it 10 feet. I guess they are designed only to fit a specific ear shape. For the $30 cost that is a ridiculous concept. they should fit ALL ear types. very disappointed!

    Iphone ear buds

    • Written by from Belmont

    I got these earphones with my I phone 5s. I haven't used them much, got the phone the 1st of December 2014. Went to use them the other day and they don't work. If I push around on the mic piece I can get it to work a little bit. I guess that is why you get them free with the phone. I also kept them in the case when not using them.

    Fall out of my ears all day long!

    • Written by from Dartmouth

    The old ones had a silcon ring that help keep them in my ears. I don't like these at all. Even chewing gum makes them fall out! I wish I could get the old ones - I loved them!

    Uncomfortable and don't stay in. Very unforgiving position-wise as well. I prefer the earlier version.

    Worst Headphones ever!

    • Written by from Far Rockaway

    The quality of these headphones are very cheap. It's only March of 2013 and I've already gone through two headphones this year. After I bought this new one, I noticed that in the ear piece I am constantly being shocked. That's a little scary, especially with this being in my ear. This has happened several times and have switched to another brand of headphones. Overall I am dissatisfied with the overall quality of apple branded accessories.
