    DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE BASS OR FALLING OFF THE EAR!

    • Written by from Praha

    I've read the reviews here before buying and was sceptical about the bass performance and "constant poping off the ears". But I gave it a try and I am truly surprised how terribly wrong were these reviewers! The trick is really to PUSH THE EARPHONES DEEPER IN YOUR EARCANALS! It's that simple! That's the only right way. Then you'll be rewarded with actually very rich bass performance (I MEAN REALLY GOOD!), total external noise removal and it holds in the ear like it was glued. Comparing to my already broken Sennheisers CX300II I had before, these Apple headphones are noticeably better in sound.
    Apart from that, the overall design is absolutely the best on the market. You got the cable that doesn't vilely curl itself and is elegantly symmetrical (god i hate these asymmetrical cables), you got the ultimate remote (which you can also use with your Mac all the way), you got a straight minimalistic connector (what is the point of the "L" shaped ones??) and you got a durable hard case for them, which looks like a piece of art. And again - they DOESN'T POP OFF THE EAR, nor the rubber pads are falling off the earphones (It's not easy to remove them actually). Only thing I can't say is the long time durability.

    Still love them.

    • Written by from Calgary

    I've had these for 2 years now. With lossless content, great sound. However, the soft tips do only last several months. I've been able to get replacements from the Apple store, which works for me.
    Keeping them in the original case all the time has kept them well.
    The sound from these is fairly flat, but I like that because I can use the equalizer settings in iTunes to customize it for the genre I'm listening to.

    Bad! DO NOT! I repeat DO NOT buy these

    • Written by from Weymouth

    I bought these a few months ago because they looked really good and thought they might be better than the ear pods that come free with iPhones. Man was I wrong. The speaker on the left blew out within a couple weeks and I had to use one of the replacements that come with. The ear tips keep popping off like crazy. They give you replacement ones for those as well and I went through all but one of those. Then, the cord itself frayed and exposed the wires.

    Needless to say, I went back to the ones that come free. Those are way better.

    Not Good

    • Written by from long beach

    I had the other ear phones that cost $30 and they were way better, these in ear ones aren't as comfortable and these don't last as long at least in my case, not worth the extra money.

    The earbuds just don't fall off! Good pair, little pricy for what you get.

    • Written by from Ponte Vedra Beach

    I hate to hear people say the earbuds fall off of their ears. That's because they don't know how do wear them or they have never tried inear earbuds before. I have been wearing inear headphones for four years now. Till this day there has been no problem of earbuds falling off of my ears. Because I try all sizes of earbuds and go for the right size. And these Apple inear headphones earbuds just don't fall off. They are really comfortable and air tight if you choose the right size. I have bought a dozen of inear headphones in recent years.
    I am not particularly impressed for the sound I get for the price I paid. Maybe because I tried Shure SE425 right before trying these for the first time or they haven't burned in yet. Still it's a decent pair. I've had klipsch Image S4 a few years back and they sounded slightly better than these. Because I suppose they were tuned to sound wonderful regardless what a music is supposed to sound when it was made. Just like Bose headphones adds 'fake but good' sound I heard. My AKG K77 I bought to practice guitar sounds better than this, too. Cause it has different specs, it's made for a different purpose. But these Apple inears sounds good for they give original sound I think. I bought them because they are the most affordable dual driver headphones. Design wise it's perfect, two drivers to fit in in such a tiny little thing. Other headphones have unnecessary shapes that I hate. I think these are good but little pricy for the sound. If you don't care for the dual drivers, go for the Klipsch Image S4, it was chosen as the best affordable in-ear headphones by CNet. Otherwise Apple in-ears are very nice, too.
    Again, the earbuds just don't fall off. NO, THEY DONT!

    Second Pair - Very Satisfied!

    • Written by from Richardson

    I see many of the mediocre reviews, but having used these headphones for two to three years and now buying a new pair, I think these are great. I've always felt the bass is good and the overall sound quality is high. You just have to make sure they fit snugly into you ear and get "seated" which takes a few extra seconds when putting them on. Once there, you're all set!

    Most inconvenient headphones I've ever had, especially for the price!!

    • Written by from CHAPEL HILL

    The earbuds fall off constantly even with basic movement. I am now conditioned to treat them like something that could fall apart at any moment. It's so terrible that I've considered superglueing them on, but at this point I've lost almost all the rubber buds so the ones I'm using are mismatched. I would never buy these again unless they figure out a better way to connect the tips to the headphones. Way too expensive to be this poorly built.

    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.

    • 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.

    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.

    Fantastic sound from some tiny, subtle earbuds

    • Written by from Kent

    These headphones sound fantastic. You don't need to be a pretentious audiophile to notice the difference between listening to music with these headphones and Apple's EarPods, the older earphones, and a lot of non-Apple headphones. Everything sounds great and, just as advertised, you'll notice aspects of your music you hadn't before. I did, anyway! Ambient noise cancellation is great, on top of all that. I can easily get lost in my music on the bus, at work, or just outside.

    As pointed out by other reviewers, getting a good fit with the silicone tips is crucial to enjoying these headphones. The mediums that came attached are too big for me. I could barely get a seal, it was uncomfortable at best, and they fell out very easily. The large ones didn't work out either, but I found the small ones fit my ears great. The right earbud will sometimes slip out of my ear, though, if I'm messing with the control buttons built into the microphone or moving around. Still, mic and controls are just like the ones on the EarPods and it's definitely convenient.

    If you're on the fence, I'd say go for it! Try all the silicone tips out, in both ears separately, and I bet you'll find a good fit for your ears. I listen to a lot of different kinds of music and I've been impressed every time I use these, across a pretty diverse range of genres.

    In detail, but sound field is weird.

    • Written by from muncie

    This is a pair of good in-ear headphone. Light weight, well designed, comfortable. This is one of the cheapest two unit in-ear headphone that you can get now. The sound is good in detail and balanced. But the sound field is weird; it shapes like a triangle, listener is like near one of the corner. At the same time, the voice may sound thinner than studio-level monitor headphones. But in general, it is a pair of good in-ear headphone that goes with any mobile devices.

    Nonsense Ear Phones.

    • Written by from Pune

    Really I don't know why Apple making this kind of nonsense ear phones. Always left ear bud is sticking inside ear. When I pulled ear phone out of my ear, ear bud is staying inside ear only.

    Please go for Bose ear phones.

    P.S: Please DO NOT purchase. Go for BOSE.

    Very satisfied for the price I paid -- Better than $150 Bose, etc.

    • Written by from Cedar Park

    Just got my iPhone5s. Ear pod that comes with the phone is good but not for workout. I bought and returned 3 pairs of high-end ear buds (Bose, and others) but none of them worked for me.

    This pair did it for me. For the price I paid you can't go wrong. Yes it has lack of bass but it's not that bad. Excellent sound clarity and it stays in your ear. I highly recommend it.

    Cheap plastic

    • Written by from Milano

    The sound is quite good but the material is so cheap that within the first year of usage you will loose the volume rocker/play/pause/mic functions, all cable junctions will expose, in-ear caps become yellow soon and it's easy to loose them!

    Best In-ear headphones... But...

    • Written by from Atwater

    I thought these were the best in-ear headphones and still do, but, the silicone tips fall out too easily and you end up losing em. Did I mention they don't sell replacement tips? I'd give 4 stars. They need tighter silicone tips but they have great sound.

    Good - when they work

    • Written by from WINNIPEG

    Fitted snugly in your ears, these phones deliver very fine quality sound. But if, like me, your ears and the three ear bud sizes are less than a perfect fit, you can find these popping out all too easily unless you're listening while comatose. Probably this is a generic problem with in-ear headphones of any brand. What's prompted me to write this review is early failure of these expensive phones.

    First failure: about three years into my use of them, the remote stopped communicating with their device - my second generation iPod Touch. No more convenient remote-controlling of volume, pausing, fast-forwarding, skipping etc. I also began having random events where songs started skipping automatically, as often as every 5 or 10 seconds. Phooey.

    Second failure: Yesterday - hey, what happened to the left channel? Today - it's still not there, whether plugged into the iPod or (to troubleshoot) my Macbook.

    So, after just ~3.5 years of moderate use, these phones appear to be toast, which, come to think of it, is pretty much what my 2nd gen iPod Touch is becoming, thanks to its orphaned version of iOS.

    excellent heaphones!

    • Written by from Altamonte springs

    apple products rock! these are perfect for listening to music on my ipad air. when I bought them I wondered if there were any extra earbuds for fit and there are but I didn't need them because the buds already attached fit so well. sound quality is great. I know there are much more expensive earphones out there, but I like the sound on these. haven't answered a call yet, but i'm sure It will work great.
