    Nothing to Special

    • Written by from Mechanicsville

    This pair of EarPods were ok. I loved the shape and fit. They stayed in my ears great, but after less than a year, the sound in the left ear went out. I always got the cheaper earbuds because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on them, but the sound in one ear always went out pretty fast. I decided to "splurge" and get these, and I loved them....then the sound went out in one ear....just like the cheap ones. I'm really disappointed and out $30.

    Good sound, but don't stay in ear

    • Written by from Biloxi

    These ear phones sound pretty good, no real complaints. However, I wear these when I work out and they do not stay in my ear very well. That is my only use for these headphones.

    Technical Issue

    • Written by from Toronto

    The sound is absolutely fantastic, but I seem to be having problems with the remote buttons. The "play/pause" button works just fine, but the volume buttons don't. Now I've only tried it with my new 5s but I would think that should be the last of the problems...any ideas...?

    hmm? depends what you compare it to

    • Written by from Minden

    If I were to compare these to the free ones you get on airplanes these are better than Amazing but if I were to compare them to a professional headset they wouldn't be as good but I would have to say these have decent quality sound no matter what you have used in the past

    These are awesome!!

    • Written by from Kenora

    These headphones are flippin' great! You'll love them, they not only fit great in your ears but the overall sound they produce from your music is much more full and sounds HD (if that makes any sense). I love my pair of EarPods, much better than my old earbuds hands down. I also believe that the cord on them is longer as well, making them more suitable for jogging, working out, and walking with your device in your pocket.

    Beware: Apple recently changed the cable material

    • Written by from San Francisco

    A couple of weeks ago I needed to replace the EarPods I received with my iPhone 5 last year. Nothing wrong with them, they were lost during a trip. So I picked up a new pair of EarPods at an Apple Store in San Francisco. Unfortunately, the new ones have a different cable: the insulation isn't "rubbery" and flexible like the original matte gray cable found on the original EarPods. Instead, the new EarPods have a shiny white insulation that isn't as flexible and instead of coiling up nicely like the old ones, the stiffness of the new ones means they stay a mess as they retain their shape. In short: they feel cheap, like the kind of headphones you can pickup just about anywhere for $10. Very disappointed.

    Awesome, but break easily.

    • Written by from Wilmington

    These are a great fit in my ears and the sound quality is awesome! However, mine broke after just four months. I use them at least five times a week when I go running and sometimes in the car if I'm talking on the phone and don't want to use my hands. I was very careful and always kept them stored neatly, and away from moisture when they weren't being used. I don't know why they broke, but I'm bummed they did! Loved them.

    Oh man, compared to the old ear buds these are out of this world! The sound quality is fantastic and they don't feel like they're going to fall out constantly. Great product!

    remote too insensitive

    • Written by from Mississauga

    the sound of the earpods are great and the size is perfect for my ears. but the remote is so not sensitive that every time i try to turn up or turn down the volume or change the song i have to press VERY hard for it to sense me. and sometimes even when i press very hard it still doesn't work. i dont know if every earpod has this problem or just mine. but i think a product of apple should never be so dull like this.

    Excellent sound

    • Written by from Glasgow

    These headphones are amazing, they provide a really good sound for all genres of music. The bass is really good and higher notes also come through well, providing a rich sound. I also like that these headphones are really easy to keep clean. The reason why these headphones only receive 4 stars and not 5 is because the left earpod tends to fall out when I am walking, but that might just be might my ears..

    A Vast Improvement

    • Written by from Portland

    I am a tone-freak studio and performing musician. Based upon my past experiences with the stock headphones from my previous iPod and iPhone products, I had very low expectations when I upgraded my iPhone. I gave these headphones a try when I forgot my other triple-the-price in-ear headphones at home one day.

    Man, was I surprised - these things have amazing sound quality, especially for the price. Sparkling highs. Tight lows. Decidedly non-wonky mids. They really preserve the dimensionality, clarity and *character* of the original recordings, be it baroque chamber music, Coltrane, Public Enemy or Ozzy.

    If you've been making do with Apple's old stock headphones, do yourself a favor and spend the $30 to upgrade today. You'll be amazed at what you've been missing.

    I purchased the iPods to use with my iPad 2 sound is brilliant, however when I move I loose the sound from the pods and it reverts to the iPad tried taking it out and trying again a number of times but the problem remains will have to return them .

    I can't believe I am giving Apple a bad review but these headphones are awful! It feels like I have earplugs with noise in my ears. The sound is very muffled too. Doesn't really compare to the old headphones.

    Just fantastic

    • Written by from Riverview

    Ok these are amazing. I have a set of Bose SIE2i and Beats studios I like these the most. The Bose crackles on certain bass levels and the Beats just crackle period and requires batteries. These are small with a lot of bass. Oh and I accidentally washed the several times and they still work like brand new.

    Great for running

    • Written by from Phoenix

    I run with these on my ipod shuffle and iphone 5. The mic and controls on the cord are wonderful. The pods don't fall out and the quality is amazing.

    I have deep ear canals and they fit me great. Love them.

    I have had to replace these at least 4 times. The left bud always ends up feeling bigger then the right and hurts. The sound also becomes muzzley.

    Out of the water!

    • Written by from Eagle River

    These came with my iPod touch 5th gen back in December 2012 and after reading reviews that said they were awful, uncomfortable, etc. I decided to sell them instead without even trying them out. Well, they sat in the box till now, and I decided why not try em out? I'm now writing this review with my Earpods in and I'm loving them! The sound, and bass is a huge step up from what I'm used to! Apple did an excellent job in designing these. The cord is smooth and almost silky. Cool, great sound, clean design, superb sound! Bottom line: Buy these, see if these are "THE ONES"

    Boy, was I ticked off !!!!!!

    • Written by from Evansville

    Just got a 4s and the OEM earbuds that shipped with it were atrocious !! A pop/crack at higher volumes had me pursuing a warranty claim from Apple and I received the EarPods as my warranty replacements.

    I am one happy camper now! The Classic R&R Soul is now being fed quite nicely.

    I love these things. THANK YOU APPLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
