    Unusable Worst Fitting Earbuds Ever Made

    • Written by from Edmonds

    These are by far the worst fitting earbuds I've ever owned. They do no stay in your ear, unless you are remaining completely still, for more than a few seconds. You can't even turn your head without them falling out. The right one falls out more than the left because it's weighted down with the mic and volume control.

    Riding a bike? If the movement doesn't knock them out, the wind will. Walking or Jogging? Forget it, will never stay in.

    I can not comment on the sound quality because they do not stay in my ear long enough to listen to anything for any amount of time.

    Unless you are paralyzed from the eyebrows down, do not buy these.

    Great Sound and Design, But Major Flaw

    • Written by from West Chester

    I want to start by saying that I love the sound and shape of these headphones. They sound amazing and the headphones fit in my ear so that they are loose enough to easily remove, but tight enough that they don't just fall out of my ears when moving around. However, there is a major performance flaw in these headphones. This has happened with both of the two pairs I have had. The audio volume in the right headphone gradually gets quieter. Every few weeks I must adjust the left headphone to be quieter so that the sound stays balanced. By the end of a few months I can not even hear the music or whatever I'm listening to at full volume in places like a bus. Because of this my current pair will be my last pair.

    Since the day I bought them I was really happy because they're awesome but their "awesome new design" is completely uncomfortable and cause me a lot of pain, each time I use them I end up in the doctor because them never thought they were the cause but now I've proved it by no using them... Each time I used them my ears hurts and inflamed it made me really mad because I have a lot of apple products but I think I would never buy them again!!!!!!!!

    Great headphones, but...

    • Written by from pittsburgh

    Who needs those HUGE stuck up Beats by Dre headphones???? The new EarPods are great headphones!

    The sound quality has majorly improved from the previous headphones.
    The music in general feels much more realistic compared to other headphones.
    Even the noise cancellation is even slightly better.
    And most importantly - They sit extremely well inside the ear!!!

    The reason they get 4 stars, is actually a major problem with using these headphones in everyday life: the traveling case.

    I don't get you apple, why make the cavity in the case for rolling the headphones so small? You could have increased the cavity size and save plastic!!
    It is very uncomfortable to roll these headphones back because of the plastic when the 2 wires combine. it makes some of the wire stick out of the case and the top plastic breaks when I try to close everything up.

    I reccommend that apple should increase the cavity size for rolling back the headphones.
    This is the only big problem I have experienced with the Apple EarPods (don't underestimate it, it's a pretty major design flaw..)

    Other than that great headphones!!

    Best earbuds on the market

    • Written by from Hanalei

    i love the newly designed earbuds from Apple. They fit inside the ear better than any other set i've used before and sound as good if not better than the more expensive sound canceling headphones. Definitely a breakthrough in design and quality.
    i keep more than one pair on hand so i am never without my tunes.

    Best earphone i had ever own

    • Written by from delhi

    The sound quality is twice better than the previous earphones and the bass effects are amazing...they have no flaws in it. Its the best product from apple....thanks for such amazing earpods...:-)

    I purchased them seperately for my iPod touch 3rd gen ...the first time i put it on and i was very disappointed with the sound quality and the bass effects and then i took them for replacement to an authorised apple service centre and they just replaced it and the new ones are just too good to own...they are far much better than my expectations. Its totally good to buy it.

    the sound is very good and it blocks out most of the noise. they stay in the ear well for me.

    the only thing is that ive only had them for 6 months and they are already broken... i dont want to spend $30 on a new pair

    I really hate these new ear pods. They are too big and they hurt my ears. I'm really dissapointed that Apple has switched to this new ear pod. There is no way to adjust the size, and for my ears- and maybe for women's ears in general, they are just to big. I had to order other headphones, I just found these really unomfortable.

    First time I could ever comfortably wear earbuds!!!

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I've never been able to comfortably wear ANY kind of earbud-style headphone, to the point of my ears hurting and swelling so much that the buds wouldn't even stay in at all... Until now! I can wear these for hours and not notice one bit, and they stay in even when I'm moving around a bunch. Good stuff! Plus they sound GREAT too, esp for the money!

    Love them!

    • Written by from Stony Plain

    Really fantastic product. They sound fantastic - WAAAY better than my headphones which cost me double the price. These things are awesome. Strangely enough, my left ear feels a bit uncomfortable after prolonged usage. Not my right ear, just my left ear. Haha. So they aren't quite completely perfect for me, but I still love them.

    Great sound but horrible durability

    I love the sound but mine keep breaking. This didn't happen with my earlier earphones from apple. In fact, one if them lasted 6 years!

    100 Thumbs DOWN (horribly painful)

    • Written by from Bronx

    The new headphones that (EarPods with Remote and Mic) are the most HORRIBLY UNCOMFORTABLE things that have ever touched my ears.. They HURT!! My ears are ACHING.. They're horribly shaped for the ears.. I am so mad that they change the shape or don't maintain a standard basic type.
    They sound super great!! BUT they HURT!!!

    Best earbuds for price!

    • Written by from armonk

    Got these with my iphone 5. Also picked up a pair of the new Beats Studio. After using the beats for over an hour and transferring to the earbuds I was impressed! I always thought these earbuds were garbage but what a step up from the older earbuds.

    Great overall sound especially the bass.

    Cant get anything better for $30

    Great sound but uncomfortable

    • Written by from Elm Grove

    Man. I REALLY wish I could use these headphones. I really like the sound of my music with them, but they absolutely kill my ears. I tried to get used to them, wearing them regularly for almost a month (sometimes headphones need some time to get used to) but there was no improvement. Every time I removed them I would wince. And my ears are normal-sized; I've never had a problem with the earlier Apple earbuds or other brands... *sigh*

    Apple Earbuds w/ Mic

    • Written by from pico rivera

    Love these headphones! Much better than headphones more than twice the price, I rate these above the Beats Tour that I own, They have a nice bass response, crisp mid's and high's and stay true to the song unlike the beats which floods them with bass that IMHO ruins any type of song besides hip hop. If your thinking about making the purchase save yourself the thought and just purchase them, you'll be happy!

    Great for the price

    • Written by from Montreal

    I bought these a few weeks ago and I really like them. The sound is better than the old Apple model, they fit perfectly and do not hurt my ears even after wearing them for a few hours.
