    Love them!

    • Written by from Tukwila

    I put off buying these for a long time because I wasn't really a fan of the in ear type. When I upgraded from iPhone 4s to iPhone 5s in January or this year with the newer type I started using them. And a few weeks ago I broke down and purchased these from a local store. I love them! I haven't had them very long but I have had no problems with them. I originally put the small covers on them then switched back to the mediums when I read another review about finding the best fit being important for the sound. And it was a huge difference! Now my bass is excellent! I love that you can skip and rewind songs right from the remote on them! I would definitely recommend them to a friend or family member!

    Remote is great; sound not so much

    • Written by from Los Gatos

    These are great if your audio is limited to mono conference calls with your boss. If you're interested in listening to much on these things, make sure it's not rap, as there is 0% bass. The remote is awesome, enabling you to shuffle through your music (sorry, conference calls) quickly.

    They sound tinny, shrill, and way too bright for anything other than Brian Eno or EDM. Into dubstep? Do NOT buy these headphones.

    Descent

    • Written by from Tanjung Tokong

    It's a good headphone but Apple is not making headphones as their main thing so I suggest going with the Apple EarPods their are extremely great sounding headphones I have ever seen and it's just $30.But,if you like In-Ear Headphones go with the others or take this one.

    Poor sounds quality, poor construction

    • Written by from Miami

    I bought these because I didn't like the EarPods that came with my iPhone 5. The EarPods would not stay in my ears. The In-Ear headphones stayed in ok, but the sound quality was poor - weak to none existent bass. Then about 3 weeks after receiving them, the left earphone stopped working.

    Fantastic, the best...... Almost!!!

    • Written by from Darlinghurst

    The best in ear headphones ever, but let down by the fact the rubber ear pieces constantly come off and are lost, which renders them useless....as stated by other customers.
    Apple. Please make the grip fit tighter, so you attain a perfect score!

    Most awful earphone i ever owned. not worth 30 cents. much less $80 dlrs.

    • Written by from East meadow

    RUN!! Keep your money!!!

    Only now i KNOW i had it VERY good with the original $30 pair that came with the iphone. i like base and i need to hear sounds around me while wearing earphones. i dont need to crank up the volume. So for the original earphone, i purchased black foam covers, at Radiio Shack, so the earphones didnt slide out of my ears constantly.

    Then i spent/threw away $80 dlrs. VERY VERY Disappointed with Apple. horrendous sound. i used the medium plugs and couldn't hear ppl talking to me and the base was VERY poor.

    Then i replaced for the small buds. Now there is no base at all - only treble. In addition I still can't hear ppl around me very well.

    They sounds like CHEAP AM radio. i mean horrendous!
    Save yourself $50.
    i WISH i could have had a Test Drive! would not pay 30 cents.

    Wil buy the $30 dlrs pair and the black foams.

    Great sound, but significant issues with reliability

    • Written by from Toronto

    I've gone through three sets now. I've re-purchased because I'm pleased with the sound. I'll enumerate three issues:

    (1) ambient noise tends to get in around the buds
    (2) the remote mic and builtin controls tends to fail
    (3) the silicon in ear pieces tend to fall off easily and get lost

    Were these $40 I'd be delighted, at their current price point I'm looking for alternatives next purchase.

    Last 6 months, Apple will not replace them

    • Written by from Reston

    Despite the excellent sound quality and great price point for dual-driver headphones, I do not recommend this product. They are extremely fragile, made for aesthetics rather than durability. At six months old I had no audio in the right earphone, and Apple refuses to replace them even though they are in warranty and appear as new condition-they attribute the failure to wear and tear, which is not covered by the warranty. My experience with this one product has tarnished my opinion of Apple, especially their service procedures.To add to the frustration, you cannot obtain extra silicone ear tips for these headphones. They tend to come off easily and do get dirty over time.

    awful!!!

    • Written by from Pittsfield

    Shame on you apple!!! these are by far the worst headphones that I had bought in my life. The gel adapters fall off at each wear, lost all of my replacements and the little tiny wire screen from where the sound comes out of, these were obsolete for me, wasted my $79 plus tax because I couldn't even return them, Apple would not take them back!! Very sad about the last one!!!

    Not bad

    • Written by from Москва

    I think that these headphones are good. Why good - I still can't find a suitable vacuum size and in result the headphones don't hold on in my ears like they have to. I tried all the sizes (small, medium, large), but I need to make experience on my ears.

    Decent performance and great ergonomics but not for audiophiles

    • Written by from Huntington Park

    These in-ear headphones are great. They do a great job at canceling out outside noise and while still providing crisp and clear audio. However, they lack range in bass. They are a comfortable fit and if they seem to be of great quality, but we'll see how long they last. They are worth a look if you're looking for headphones that are a comfortable fit, lightweight, and want outside noise canceling. When I blast these headphones I'm able to completely isolate myself from the outside world and the best part is nobody knows what I'm listening too. There is minimal sound leak which make them perfect for use in quiet areas. I'm a college student and think they are worth it if it fits these needs, but if you're looking for the best sound with rich deep bass, then you should look elsewhere, but at this price range, you'll be hard pressed to find similar headphones with this kind of sound quality and beautiful ergonomics.

    Buds pop off, no replacements

    • Written by from Davis

    If the screen comes off (mine did), the silicone buds will not stay on with regular use. Even if the screen stays on, as with all in-ear headphones, the silicone buds eventually get lost. UNLIKE other in-ear headphones, Apple does not sell replacements. I have tried skull candy and other brands' soft buds as a substitute and they do not fit. Apple should either make the headphones compatible with other brands' buds or sell replacements. You are paying $79 for a product that will not last long.

    Too Big

    • Written by from Lakewood

    The sound is great, but seriously, the in-ear design is way too big! Apparently designed with men in mind! Even the slightest tug on the cord pulls the headphones our of my ears. Very frustrating.

    No replacement tips

    • Written by from Cambridge

    These headphones are great except for one issue: The silicon ear tips come off very easily and Apple will not sell you a replacement set. Unfortunately once you lose one of the set that fits you this product is utterly useless unless you buy a whole new set for another $80. The lack of replacement parts is a glaring oversight.

    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.

    Only effective for up to 20 seconds before becoming easily Dislodged

    • Written by from San Juan

    These headphones are effective for reducing external noise. However, the effect only lasts literally 15-20 seconds before the in ear headphones come dislodged and external noise creeps in.

    I think the design is really lacking on these things b/c the slightest movement will pull these things out of your ears. They really don't fit in an ear well at all.

    Sitting on an airplane: I could not chew gum b/c jaw movement will knock these out of place; couldn't pop my ears either as we ascended/descended. Walking somewhere: the weight of the cord gently bouncing against your chest as you walk pulls these out of place; if you're walking and don't adjust the headphones, they will likely fall out of your ear completely within a couple of minutes.
