    Love these in-ear headphones!

    • Written by from Flower Mound

    I have tried multiple brands of headphones including Bose and Beats but these are by far my most favorite. I have two pair of them and have recommended them to all of my friends and family. The quality of the sound is far better than the afore mentioned brands. In addition, they really make conference calls a breeze in an airport or other noisy environment because it cancels out all of the background noise. I highly recommend this product.

    Great sound!

    • Written by from Waldwick

    After a day of using these, I have to say that they impressed me right out of the gate! When the medium tips didn't quite fit my ears right, I switched them out for the included smaller tips and I was blown away. The clarity of the sound is unlike anything I've heard from previous sets of headphones. I frequently listen to a lot of movie soundtracks from Hans Zimmer, James Horner, John Williams, Danny Elfman, Nicholas Hooper, etc. With these, I was surprised by details of those soundtracks that I had never noticed. I have heard others complain that these lack prominent bass, but in the current market of bass-heavy headphones, these are a breath of fresh air. The balance is remarkable. I'm in love with these IEMs. I haven't so much as touched my Sennheisers because these are such a join to listen to.

    I love the sound (and I'm a professional musician)

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    Love the fit and the sound. Most earbuds are too big for my ears, painful to wear. The sound is great. I have no idea why people say the silicon buds fall off, I've never had that experience and I wear them a LOT. Maybe they chose the wrong size out of the three that come with the earphones? Just a guess.

    Great Earphones!

    • Written by from Ottawa

    These are truly worth the 90 Dollars I paid for them. First off, let me just say that the review that say the bass is weak are wrong. The sound is actually balanced without boosting a single frequency. The sound is wonderfully accurate and the tone is very accurate. I highly recommend these as they are truly worth the money.

    Seal the ear well enough - like ear plugs

    • Written by from Woodway

    I use mine to block out the loud noise of a roommate (&TV) or the snoring of a spouse. Besides, you cannot beat the comfort of wearing these throughout the night. I just love these, even more than the ones from my iPhone 5

    I wish these can be included with iPhones

    • Written by from Richmond

    I used to use a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which came with some really good in-ear headphones. However, I got an iPhone 4s to replace it because of a carrier switch. I still liked the in-ears but they wouldn't be able to control an iPhone so I decided to turn to Apple to find some. These are what I bought, and they're exactly the same sound quality and comfort as the Samsung ones, and they can control an iPhone because that's what they were designed for. The only con I have is that they're separately purchased items from the phone, but that's OK because they're well worth the $80.

    I've always been looking for great earphones but never was satisfied with anything... these are simply awesome. Even at low lever the sound quality is perfect and nice to hear.

    Don't Overrate the Bass!

    • Written by from Washington

    People who complain about the Bass level are clearly overrating it. Low-quality headphones trade crispness and clarity for loudness and it has nothing to do with "quality".
    Apple's headphones deliver a close-to-input sound. I had them for almost 3 years and I have recently lost the button functionality and sometimes the sound disappears (obviously the cord is broken). I haven't lost a single cap. The only concern was the quality of rubber around the junctions. Maybe they fixed it in 2013 update (like they did with all of the rubber on the standard headphones a couple of years ago).
    3 years is an amazing lifespan for any thin-cord headphones and I will continue to use Apple's headphones.

    Strong bass is achieved with right earbuds

    • Written by from Kutztown

    I own a $1500 custom monitors from Ultimate Ears. Please read my review of Apple In-Ear Headphones in this perspective.

    You cannot possibly purchase better-sounding headphones at this price, period. Many reviews here have complained about a perceived lack of bass. These headphones come with middle-size earbuds installed. Upon purchase, I immediately tried these headphones on a treadmill and strong disappointed with lack of bass and insufficient noise isolation. At that time, the middle-size earbuds felt right to my ears.

    The next day, I decided to give the large-size earbuds. In a quiet listening, I listened to the same tunes that I had listened to on the treadmill. I could not believe a dramatic improvement in smooth and strong bass tones and overall tonal clarity, blessed with superb noise isolation.

    As some reviewers here have also pointed out, it is absolutely imperative to experiment with the three different sizes of earbuds that come with these Apple headphones. One tip is that, if you are comfortable with it, you may want to moisten the earbuds with your lips. This practice would increase noise isolation further.

    True, as good as these Apple headphones sound, they are no match for custom monitors with ear molds made only for your ear canals. But, it is absolutely true that you would never find a better price-performance with headphones for iDevices than these Apple headphones.

    Give them a try and be patient with earbuds. You'd be rewarded with the feeling that you had never spent $79 on anything better than these headphones.

    Great headphones

    • Written by from baltimore

    I have to agree with prior reviewers, you really need to make sure you've got the right size ear buds attached. I tried on all three (SM,MD & LG), and after finding the right fit (MD for me), these things stay in your ear. They're comfortable and the sound is really great.

    I've ended my quest for the perfect in-ear headphones!

    Best

    • Written by from WARRENVILLE

    I listen to high quality music and hours upon hours a day - everyday- and these are the most comfortable, best sounding I have ever worn in my life. I've owned Sony's, Bose's, Stein's, and Panasonic's, etc. I throw out the original headphones that come with the Iphone's in the box because their ya know :) Comfort is the most important, and then sound quality, sound immersion/isolation, and these deliver. Amazing... Just believe me and get them.

    Misleading Reviews

    • Written by from Maroussi

    I rarely write reviews for products. But while I was taking a look at the reviews that were written for Apple In-Ear Headphones, I felt that some stuff must be named the right way.
    The product has an exceptional value for money. For 89 EUR (Greek Price) NO other competitive headphones offers the volume, quality and precision of sound In-Ear Headphones does. Just for that product deserves five stars. Additionally the isolation level is high and a frequent air plain traveler with hundreds of flight hours with either turbine as well as propeller engines, say that.
    Complains about on ear stability cannot judge a piece of sound reproduction and can easily be settled using different ear tip size or by keep them clean.

    Replacement Sleeves/Tips

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    These headphones rival the best out of the box. However, if your looking for replacement sleeves/tips, Sure EA306 Triple Flange Sleeves will only make them better. They can be purchased for less than $10 and you get three sets. For those with complaints, I encourage you to give these a whirl. I did make a slight modification to fit my ears by cutting off the smallest flange, thereby leaving two flanges.

    Best I have found.

    • Written by from UNIVERSITY PLACE

    These are still my go-to in-ear headphones. I hear the music in very crisp, clear tones, not muffled like so many of the VERY EXPENSIVE in-ear and over-ear headphones I have purchased. I also do a lot of dictation, and the quality of these earphones is so far above, yes, the expensive ones.

    I was surprised

    • Written by from Watauga

    I got these as a Christmas gift 2009, well they're still going strong. The mic doesn't work but I don't even use it anyways. These ear buds have been through A LOT, I've probably washed them in the washer like 5 times and have been through the dryer twice. Still sound as good as they day I unwrapped them, and the inline volume and music controls still work. But with their age they are beginning to fall apart a little, but for the 80$ we paid, I'd say they were well spent.

    Great Fit

    • Written by from Edinboro

    I've had these headphones for over a year now and they still work great even after going through the wash. They fit in my ears better than the iPhone 4 or iPhone 5 standard headphones, and stay put very well while I'm running
