    Improved and Durable

    • Written by from Scranton

    In my opinion, these earpods are a bigger improvement to its predecessor. The sound is more rich and pays just a tad more attention the mids. I wouldn't say these are the best earpods money can buy you, but they're a great everyday tool. And I must say, these are extremely durable, I accidentally left them in my pants after a jog and they went through the washer and dryer, they still work perfectly with no problems. They're actually cleaner now, haha.

    I find it very irritating that these headphones are uncomfortable and fall out frequently. I'm a skier and I really like to tune everything out when I'm on the slopes. I thought to try these out one day, but found that they couldn't even comfortably fit in my ears. I was also irritated because I could hear my surroundings as I was skiing. I am completely appalled by Apple's efforts and do not recommend buying their headphone products because they all have disappointed me.

    Took these from my Wife ;-)

    • Written by

    My wife upgraded her iPhone 4 to the 5c and these came in the packaging. Being an android guy (Nexus 5 owner) and not having any good headphones to jam to some tunes at the gym I snuck these in my pocket one day and I must say they are the best sounding and most comfortable headphones I've ever used.

    Great Quality and very crisp bass and sound. My wife let me keep these so I'll be purchasing me these when it comes time for a new pair! Good job apple!

    Worst Apple product this decade

    • Written by from Decatur

    These new earphones are unbelievably uncomfortable. I can't wear them more than 10-15 min without an ear ache. The previous version were the best "cheap" earphones out there, and these just don't fit at all for me. They don't sound awful, but when you can't wear them for more than very short term what is the point!

    Awesome sound

    • Written by from harare

    For this size and price I don't think there is a better sound on the market. Across the whole spectrum from jazz to classic right through to rap and pop. Apple did their homework here.You won't be disappointed . Only let down only works with apple products.

    Bang for your buck

    • Written by from CARSON

    For $30, this is worth it. This is better than the standard head phone that come with the iPhones. This is more stable in your ear versus the standard iPhone ear piece. Perfect for driving. If the car windows are down you may have difficulty hearing a phone call. I haven't tried using it while running.

    I have owned a pair of these EarPods for quite a while now, and I must say that I am impressed with the durability of them. Besides surviving day-to-day use, my EarPods have been through TWO washer and dryer cycles; despite that, they still work perfectly. There is no sound quality difference, and the volume control/mic still works flawlessly. Thank you, Apple for designing these to be washer-proof!

    Definitely do not fit ears of all sizes

    • Written by from Burlington

    Sound quality is great, mic is great, one problem: they are too big to fit in my ears.... which not only makes them extremely uncomfortable but makes them impossible to use because every time I move they fall out.

    Great Sound, Bad Build Quality

    • Written by from Rolling Meadows

    I love these headphones for listening to music except the build quality just absolutely awful. I am now going onto my 4th pair of earpods because of the cheap build quality. The fact though that i have gone through 3 pairs of these and i am going onto my 4th i think apple should pay for this next pair for me

    Love These!

    • Written by from Newmarket

    I got these with my new iPhone and LOVE them! They were a nice surprise. They fit comfortably. I normally have a lot of problems with ear buds, these ones are great. The sound quality really impressed me as well, they sound excellent. Normally I never end up using the ear buds that come with apple products but these ones are excellent. So glad apple did this!

    Wow--so much better than the old ones

    • Written by from Peshtigo

    The old earbuds did not fit my ear canals at all and were painful after a few minutes of wear. These EarPods are a 100% improvement. They are SO COMFORTABLE and stay put in my ears. The sound quality is also excellent. Thank-you!

    Apple Earpods

    • Written by from Melbourne

    While these earpods sound better than the previous ones, the bass of the music protrudes into the inner ear causing my ears to ache. I mean the quality of the earpods are definitely of high quality, but my ears did not benefit from the new shape. I have been having earaches and had to stop listening to my ipod because my ears were screaming. Tried adjusting the volume but if it is turned down too low you cannot hear the music but only the bass instruments.

    Too Big

    • Written by from Cross Lanes

    I must have really small ears. They won't stay in because they don't go in my ear far enough. Wish they came in a smaller size because the sound is really good.

    Great....but the color

    • Written by from Glen Gardner

    I love these headphones. Really good quality and they fit nicely in my ears for the most part. The only problem I have with these headphones is the color. White is nice but it gets dirty really easily especially when you use the headphones often. It would be really great if Apple could make them available in multiple colors. Since Apple is all about color now they should bring it to their accessories.

    Amazing sound quality but....

    • Written by from Ofallon

    Apple should keep in mind that not all ears are equal. Though I love the sound quality I find it difficult to keep the earpods in for more than a few hours and I have to adjust them frequently. It would have been nice to have a choice between the earpods and earbuds with the same sound quality.

    Another amazing Apple product

    • Written by from Buffalo

    These are by far superior to the normal earphones shipped with iPods, amazing sound quality and clarity, rich bass and strong tones.

    Great Sound, but right earpod went out.

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I've had these earpods for a few months now. They sound great! In fact I ditched the big bulky Beats for these bad boys. Great for running, exercising, etc. However, the right side did go out on me, which was a disappointment. I was hoping to have these forever, now I will have to purchase new ones :( Apple please fix this issue!

    Fantastic headphones but not fantastic quality

    • Written by from Peachtree City

    I love these headphones! I have smaller ears and these are the only headphones I have used that effectively block out sound and don't pop out of my ears like most in-ear headphones. I use them four to five times a week for often up to three hours at a time and they never cause discomfort. The sound is good too but after using them for three months I have noticed that the sound can cut out in one ear if you shift a certain way. It's never too much to ruin the experience, it's just annoying when you notice it and makes me wonder how durable these really are. I keep them in the case provided and can't imagine why the sound would do that.

    Earbuds like these for $30... Wow.

    • Written by from summerville

    I had previously owned the original Apple Earbuds and they were alright. I heard these and I was introduced to a lower end of my music I've never heard! The overall balance is awesome and these things go LOW. Like they came pretty close to the frequencies my subs put out. Granted the subs are pretty cheap, it's still impressive what Apple was able to put into a pair of headphones this small, not to mention how comfortable they are! It would be very hard for me to go back to any other pair of earbuds

    I've never had an issue with any other type of earbuds before but these are so uncomfortable! After 10-15 minutes they hurt terribly. I feel like the insides of my ear are bruised from wearing them.

    The sound quality is also supposed to be improved with these but I've noticed no difference from my old earbuds.

    I guess they must work well for some people's ears but I will be switching to a different brand.
