    Great so far

    • Written by from Dallas

    I had the old apple earbuds ever since I bought my first iPhone 3G years ago. They were the only earbuds I liked because of the form; they seemed to fit my ears better than anything else I tried, pretty much anything with those rubber ear buds that just fall out of my ears.

    I finally had to replace them today when that rubber circle on the outside started peeling (after about 8 years). I looked around and saw that apple released these a while back and saw they had a similar shape. After reading a million reviews for these and other earbuds, I ran to Microcenter and picked a pair up.

    The second I put them on, I was shocked. The difference in sound was amazing; I never knew what I had been missing. They fit even better than the earbuds and are so comfortable.

    I'm not even a huge Apple fan (mostly for programming, Windows for gaming and everything else, and have an Android phone) but their earbuds/pods haven't let me down yet, and a much better price point than Beats.

    The only thing is the default bass (although much better than the earbuds) was a bit too loud. A little bit of equalizing to my preferences and the sound is perfect.

    Let's hope they last as long as my last earbuds.

    Glad I made the switch!

    For several months I have been using some basic earphones from Sony. I use em at the gym and have gotten sweat and water in them, but still worked properly. I refused to use the new earphones that came with my iPhone 5c because I hate in-earphones and always fall off. Eventually, I caved and when I started my jog I was blown away by how great the sound quality of these earphones was and they did not fall off throughout my entire jog. I completely appreciate the great sound quality and the bass.

    Great durable Headphones

    • Written by from Sanford

    Ive read some of the reviews and noticed that a lot of the 1 star reviews mention that these headphones break easily. This is NOT true. I just washed my headphones in the washing machine on accident and they got stuck around the agitator. After untangling it from the washer I noticed that the headphones were pretty beat up. the rubber was cut in multiple places the wires were exposed and most of the cord is stretched out. I plugged them into my iPhone 6 and turned on some music and they still work. So yeah, I don't believe the 1 star reviews about how they break easily.

    Then sound on these are amazing. I have a pair of Sennheiser hd 280 pro monitoring headphones and I have to say that these $30 apple headphones are close to the quality of the monitors. These are a LOT better than Beats IMO. I love apple to death but I will never buy a pair of Beats.

    These earpods are NOT great at ALL!!!

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    I got my iPhone like 30 days ago...just 30 days mind you...and I have had to get my third pair of earpods already...the very first time the left earpod stopped working completely....then in the second pair...the volume suddenly went terribly low...so even a full volume I couldn't hear loud music...it sucked!!! Now I have my fingers crossed that this third pair works properly.... Please APPLE this must be a genuine problem...

    Great Headphones but they break often!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I love these headphones. Great sound for the size plus the portability and design are excellent. My main problem is, I've had the right ear bud speaker fail on 3 seperate pairs within one year! That's $90 that I've put into the Apple earpods this year. I'm very gentle with them yet they seem destine to break around 4 months if you use them daily. But only the right speaker will break, which will torture you as you to debate on returning them to the genius bar or investing in a different brand.

    Surprisingly good - a real bonus

    • Written by from ADDLESTONE

    Really surprised at the improvement over the "old" style Apple headphone that I got with the iPhone 4. These are top notch. I have a pair of AKG K490NCs and these are not too far behind in terms of sound and I think they probably beat the Logitech UE plugs that I had. I just hope that they stand the test of time.

    Massive upgrade. Well worth $30

    • Written by from Highlands ranch

    I got the iPhone 6 recently and didn't think there would be any difference between the headphones I got with the 4s. I plugged them in right after I took out my old headphones and was continued playing the same song. Never have been I been more impressed in my life. I legitimately came to the apple store online to see how much these were worth because I was in disbelief of the quality of the product.

    Sound is better than beats

    • Written by from Jasper

    the sound is actually better than my beats tour 2.0. the earpods are pretty much indestructible too, unless you are dumb and wash them in your clothes like me. but for 30$ they sound amazing. worth buying another pair! lol

    Amazing Sound

    • Written by from Saint Petersburg

    Fantastic sound. Unfortunately the round foam pads don't fit them. Without the foam pads, after some time, sweat gets in the speakers and ruins them. Anyone have a fix for this?

    They hurt.

    • Written by from New York

    These earpods hurt my ears and scrape after an hour. Apple: Please continue making the old earbuds. They were not painful and fit better. Please provide them as an alternative.

    Great sound, but don't be too rough

    • Written by from Lawrenceville

    I love using my EarPods. They sound amazing, they're comfortable, they don't fall out easily. But I use them every day, and constantly put them through a lot. Before long, wires begin bending, breaking, insulation strips off, and eventually one side may stop working (it's been the right side every time). It's not necessarily bad build quality, but I do wish they were more durable. However, I keep coming back to EarPods because they're still great. If you get these, just be sure to keep them in the case when you're not using them, or tape certain areas (I'd suggest around the headphone jack and where it splits into the left and right bud). I love 'em, you just can't be too rough!

    When these came out they had a nice high quality cable. Now they very thin and prone to easy damage.

    super

    • Written by from Fort worth

    I have always had problems with other ear buds. They would either hurt or fall out and these earpods always stay in and the sOund is perfect. These are also strong I've dropped them afew times and nothing happened barley a scratch. And I'm clumsy so I do drop this here's and there. Also, To those who say they hate these earpods should not complain because not every person can get used to them. Everyone has different shaped ears with different needs. For example I personally don't like the in ear earpods because they hurt me but this earpods are shaped perfectly for my ears. But that is because I have smaller ears than others my age. With these every movie I watch all the details in music and gives are clear and sharp. Not everyone can enjoy the same things so be nice.

    Fall out constantly

    • Written by from Redwood City

    Hard it say if the sound is good or bad because they don't stay in my ears. Save your money and buy something from an audio company.

    Great if you're committed to spending $30 once a year.

    • Written by from Saint Albans

    I was satisfied with the quality of sound, remote functions and microphone of these headphones.

    The problem is (like with most apple accessories including chargers and the like), they aren't built to last. During the one year warranty, I replaced these headphones twice. And now that I'm out of warranty by a few months, this third pair (that I technically did not have for a year since they were a replacement), is not functioning and I'll have to spend another $30.

    If you're willing to deal with apple's tendency to sell products that fall apart, just make sure you buy these headphones online so that when you make the journey to the apple store, you can get them replaced the 2+ times you'll need to during the year.
