    Best earbuds ever!

    • Written by from Montreal

    If stuff is good its good who ever made it. These are the best ear/headphones I have ever owned (bought a second set for my Scotevest because don't want put them back in all the time and if I break one I have a spare. I can sleep in these, my right ear ear pods falls out sometimes, but these are just absolutely awesome. I've got tons of headphones, Gaming headphones (350$ seinhesizer)... They are good, but not comfortable for long gaming sessions, you sweat, they start to feel heavy etc.
    ... These are by far the most comfortable , may not be the best sounding. But buy a set of SURE ear buds for a 100$ and then you touch the wire and it just pops in your ear, you feel your ears are plugged with something and it's just a real bad sensation. I'd rather hear what's going on outside and have this sweet sweet sound. I sleep in them all the time. To me, they are the most comfortable and I don't care much anymore for over the ear or headphones that are heavy and you get tired after 5 minutes of wearing them

    Very painful!

    • Written by from Crossville

    The sound is great but after wearing them for a while they are too painful to wear. They are too big and hard lol. I am still searching for some silicone covers for them that will hopefully help.

    Best earbuds I've ever tried

    • Written by from Montpelier

    I normally don't use ear buds because they tend to hurt my ears (the shape not the sound) even the ones made for smaller ears bother me. I also have the problem of the earbuds falling out, even when I'm sitting still.
    Not so with these!! I absolutely love them. They don't hurt my ears, they stay put and they have incredible sound! The music sounds so rich and full. It's amazing. I don't think I'll ever use a different pair again!

    Terrible! Do not buy!

    • Written by from Toronto

    Aside from terrible sound quality, these ear buds are poorly manufactured! I would not recommend anybody buy these ear buds! I've had four pairs replaced in the last three months! I've taken immaculate care of each pair I've had replaced yet they've still caused me trouble! They'll work fine for three or four weeks before the sound dies in one ear and eventually the other.

    Good sound, super uncomfortable

    • Written by from Centennial

    Good sound, as good as anything in the price range. But they are so uncomfortable. I was expecting a bit more comfort than the old earbuds, but if anything there's less. I'll definitely be going back to Skullcandy or some other budget brand with more comfort.

    Ear pod dissatisfaction

    • Written by from Orlando

    I am on my second ear pod set in less than a year. My first pair started crackling in less than three months. I would not recommend them to anyone. I was told at the Apple store that they do not have a warranty if bought in the store. I don't blame them. They are almost worthless.
    I have a second set that i bought as a back up. I will probably get 3 months out of them as well.
    I will not be buying anything from the Apple Store again...

    Review coming from Someone that never cared about headphones

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    First of all, I want to state that I'm an ordinary user that never cared about the quality of headphone products until now. I always though to myself that as long as there is sound coming out of it, I'm good to go!

    However, when I bought iPhone 5, I got these headphones with it. When I tried them on I was blown away by the quality of music! I couldn't believe what I was missing. As I stated before, I'm just an ordinary user and I'm not expert on headphones, but these little guys blown me away with the quality of music.

    The biggest different I noticed between these headphones and normal ones is the beat! there is a beat on almost every music that enhance it and makes it way more ejoyable. With these headphones, even terrible music sound amazing.

    I totally recommend it to anyone.

    In closing, I would like to re-state few things. I know that my review might sound a sell-out, but keep in mind that this review is coming from an ordinary user that only know headphones transfer sounds. I don't know how they are bulit or how they function. I only know that such non-expert person were able to recognize the difference between Apple Earpods and normal headphones.

    Wow

    • Written by from Queens

    I've had these ear buds for a month they are great, but controls don't work on androids. However, the bass is great. The ear buds are so comfortable and don't fall out of your ears.

    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.

    • Written by from barranquilla

    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.

    Painful!

    • Written by from san Francisco

    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.
