    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.

    Painfull!!

    • Written by from San Francisco

    While the sound is great, these earbuds are incredibly painful in my ear. I've never had a pair of headphones that hurt before. The shape is not at all comfortable for my ears and it's very painful to my outer ear to wear these things. Please bring back the old ones.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Augsga

    After a few months of using these after i purchased the iPhone 5, the earphones jack broke off inside my iPad. I'm currently so disappointed right now because I always use my iPad for watching videos. Not only have I broken my earphones, I also have ruined the audio of a perfectly good iPad. Other than that, the earpods are quite good and a vast improvement from the old ones, although if you were to buy them as a single product, I wouldn't recommend these.

    Great sound but don't stay in the ears

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    The new Apple EarPods have nice sound but do not stay in my ears when I move. The model I like best for placement in the ears is the old standard (prior to the previous model).

    Best ear phones I've ever owned!

    • Written by from Minehead

    I've previously owned earphones like monsters and dr dre beats, but none are as good as these, the sound that comes out is absolutely perfect, and they fit in my ear like a dream, the earpods are a clear sign that apple is upping their game

    Best EarPods Ever!

    • Written by from Clay Center

    This is the first pair of in ear headphones that I can go jogging with that don't connect or wrap around my ear. The sound quality is great and they still feel comfortable after extensive use. The one downside for some is that it's easily heard by those around you. With most headphones if you have to really turn it up for someone else to hear. It's not like they can hear it as good as you can but its different. If this doesn't matter to you then these are the best sounding most comfortable headphone you can find for $30.

    Absolutely wonderful!

    • Written by from Saint Clair Shores

    I bought these to replace the EarBuds that came with the iPod Classic I bought back in 2009 and I just can't believe the difference. The first things I listened to when they arrived were my favorite Beatles songs from the digital box set I bought awhile back. I thought those songs sounded great before but I was blown away by the depth, richness, and texture that came across through the new EarPods. The effect has been the same with other music I've tried, everything from Lady Gaga to Luciano Pavarotti.

    I grew up with 45's and transistor radios so iPods were already a bit of a miracle to me and mine just got a little more magical.

    Just horrible...

    • Written by from FARMINGTON HILLS

    Truly, an awful design!!! These earpods will not stay in place at all. No matter what I do they will not stay in the ear when working out with them on. It helped a little by placing the foam earbud covers, but they eventually still fall out. Though the volume control is a nice feature, the placement of it makes it act like a pendulum and when working out or running it just further aides in the bud not staying put. Also the adjustment clasp does no good either now that they placed the slit in it so the wire just pops out eventually. The earpods that came with the iphone4 were much better at staying in place.

    They keep breaking!!!!

    • Written by from Lowell

    I have used apple headphones for years!!!! I decided to try these new earphones!!!! I've had to buy 2 pairs in the last 6 months. First the aux jack bended on me and now the remote won't work... Really??? The old apple headphones used to not fit in ear well and they used to kill my ear. Now these fit in my ear but keep breaking. I'm seriously considering buying some Dr. Dre's instead. I'm not happy with this product at all <<< Save your money and buy something better...

    Disappointing

    • Written by from Torrington

    These ear pods came with my iPhone 5. I find them to be absent any treble. Sounds muffled. I prefer the previous version.

    Thumbs down for me.

    Well done, Apple.

    • Written by from Bucyrus

    I bought these Earpods to remedy the uncomfortable design and average sound quality of my Apple earbuds I received with my iPhone.
    1) The design is ingenious. The Earpods fit the ear much better and direct the sound where it should go. The vents work wonders for the bass, and I have noticed significant difference when holding them closed in a curious test I did recently. The ControlTalk module is a huge improvement, and now I know which button I'm pressing and I can feel it click.
    2) Sound is very nice- comparable to certain celebrity-endorsed headphones relevant to the letter b, but without the noise-cancellation, so I can walk around town still able to hear traffic.
    3) Durability is great. I dunno what got into some of the other reviewers, but I live in hot hot Texas or cold Ohio, I have used them when exercising (better for lifting than running, they're secure but not that secure), and a couple days ago, I unknowingly put them through both the washer and dryer. No damage detectable from heat/chill, sweat, or water.

    How bout them Apples?

    Great Sound, But ...

    • Written by from Whitefish

    These ear phones deliver some very good sound, no doubt about that. But, they are NOT ergonomically designed. They are advertised as being optimized to fit the ear, but not mine. They do not stay in place and are easily dislodged by minor movements, necessitating frequent adjustments and reinsertions. The microphone is very good, and has a non-linear pickup that tends to emphasize your voice over background sounds. You'll still get background interference, but the mic delivers a good voice quality on the other end. For the price they are a good deal, but unless you have the shape of ear for which these things were designed, you may be disappointed with the fit.

    Two pairs of earphone not working

    • Written by from Whanagrei

    These are the second pair of these earphones I have bought, first pair came with iPod nano for xmas 2012 and second pair came with another iPod nano a month or so ago. (One bought for my mum). Both of these earphone sets the sound has been out in the right ear upon first opening them. The first earphones came right by themselves after a few uses but the second pair still aren't working. I figured maybe they could of just been from the same bad batch or something but considering they were purchased a good 6 months apart, I thought that may have been unlikely.

    Absolutely Terrible!

    • Written by from London

    I bought these earpods expecting an improvement in sound quality over their predecessors. I have only had them for 6 months and they have stopped working. The music will just stop yet the song will continue to play on my Ipod. I tried out my other earbuds only to find that the sound quality was exactly the same and that the music actually played without interuption. I am extremely upset that they have stopped working and would not recommend this product to anyone. Don't waste your money.

    great sound, break really easily

    • Written by from GLEN FORREST

    I have had my iPod for 6 months now. The EarPods are brilliant! I take great care of them everyday, but, after 2 months they stopped working in one ear!! So, I nicked my mother's EarPods that came with her iPhone 5, and they stopped working in one ear after 1 month!!! So I took both broken sets back and Apple happily replaced them. Now, after a further month, my EarPods STOPPED WORKING IN ONE EAR AGAIN!! There is obviously a factory fault, so although they have FANTASTIC sound they are not worth the time I am unhappy to report :( very disappointed.

    I love the sound of the earphones. Apple, if you guys are reading this, let me just say you did a fantastic job with everything about them except for one thing, that matters a lot. my right ear pod, completely stopped working. the left one is fine, and i never went full volume. I am extremely disappointed the stopped working because I loved the sound on them. and I got them with my iphone 5 so i didnt get any warranty. Please help me I can't afford a new pair right now

    My Earholes Hurt

    • Written by from Winter Park

    These were supposedly designed to fit the ear perfectly, then why does it feel like my ears have been stretched out by ron jeremy? I can't leave these in for more than 20-30 minutes without being really uncomfortable. I wouldn't purchase. Two stars only because they sound decent. Otherwise it would be 1 star
