    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.

    no bass, not worth the price

    • Written by from Mérignac

    It's all in the title, this headphone delivers almost no bass sounds. I am very disapointed with this purchase, especially considering the relatively high price. I wasn't expecting Apple to ship this kind of poor quality product,

    DON"T BUY!!!

    • Written by from LA CROSSE

    As much as I love Apple. I don't like these in-ear headphones with remote and mic. They are built very poorly. I got these for free because the original Apple in-ear remote/mic stop working after 2 years, so Apple was kindly enough to send these for free. But I kept on having to buy replacement buds on Amazon every 3 weeks because they kept on falling off and I couldn't find them.

    So I advice you to purchase the new earbuds with mic or the ones without mic.

    Poor durability, good sound quality

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Pros:
    - Good sound quality (for price)
    - Much more comfortable than "earpods"

    Cons:
    - Very fragile. I'm on my 6th pair (seriously!)

    Fortunately Apple has replaced my for free every time they've broken, but it's annoying to go into the store so frequently to have them replaced.

    Decent price and quality

    • Written by from Flushing

    I wanted to get an in ear headpiece. Narrowed it down to the Sennheiser MM30i and this one. I usually use headphones (over the ear type) if I listen at home so this was basically when on the move outdoors. The Senn has much stronger bass, but I suppose the trade off is the clearer sound... but the apple in ear is much more clearer with the sound and just felt much better to listen to the type of music I usually listen to. Spoke to a friend who is a sound engineer and he explained that I ll mainly be using it in noisy environments (subway, bus, while walking on the streets etc) and that a strong bass the Senns offered may not be the most ideal for ear health and best music experience.....so I went with these.....one thing I must say about the bass if you find it lacking...using the EQ settings on the iPhone for "bass boost" does make a noticeable difference....just gotta play around with the preset modes and you get the best out of the headphones. That s just my experience. Hope that helps

    Great Headphones, but are without replacement tips and good Isolation

    • Written by from Waterford

    These are great headphones, but they don't isolate as well as I'd like. My only reason for buying In-Ear headphones is for isolation. I eventually bought Etymotic MC5 headphones because they have much better isolation.

    My other problem is that Apple doesn't sell replacement eartips and mesh caps for them. Without replacements eartips and mesh caps, these headphones become useless as soon as you lose either the eartips or mesh caps.

    Good sound but poorly designed

    • Written by from Omaha

    I like the sound of the earbuds. The frequency is very balanced very close to the professional studio monitors I use. If you are like the majority of people who like a loud bass, these are not your choice. If you look for a balanced and accurate sound, these are perfect.
    While the sound is very good, the design is pretty bad. Most earbuds I've owned, they all have some sort of a lip/ring on the earbud tube that goes into the tip and there is also a ring on the tip to lock to the earbud tube. The Apple version is a smooth tube on the tip and earbud. As you use them, grease gets between the surfaces and tip slides off very easily. It's not difficult to solve the issue by offering a filter in a bigger diameter and retool the tip tooling to add a ring inside the tip tube so they interlock when tip is on the tube.

    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!

    Rubber Ear buds fall off very easily and get lost right away. Design flaw and not worth it for the price.

    Poor Build Quality

    • Written by from Pottstown

    I got a pair of in-ear headphones when they were redesigned a few years ago. The sound quality is quite good, for the price and for in-ear headphones. However, after a few months, the left earbud would no longer produce any sound. I took good care of them, wrapping them and storing them safely whenever they were not in use, so I didn't think it was a problem on my end. I took them into my local (read: 45-minute away) Apple Store, and had them exchanged for another pair, as they were still under warranty. Again, good audio quality, but the same problem happened in about six months. To save some time, I'll just say that today, my sixth pair (all replaced under warranty) died in the left earbud. Apple told me last time that they will no longer give me any replacements, even though the warranty is technically renewed every time I brought in a broken pair, and I am still within a year of the last exchange.

    Thank you, Apple, for poor customer service on your poorly built headphones. I'll be getting my headphones from a trusted manufacturer, this time.

    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.

    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.

    My Favorite Headphones

    • Written by from College station

    I love these earbuds! They are the only ones I have tried that don't hurt my ears and stay in place while I run. I was incredibly bummed when I sent them through the wash by accident and stunned when I discovered they still worked afterwards. I rate these above the Bose earbuds I own, the sound quality isn't quite as amazing but those make my ears hurt, a lot.

    NOT WORTH THE PRICE!!!!!!!

    • Written by from Moravian Falls

    I returned these after 1 week of use. The sound is EXTREMELY POOR FOR THE PRICE TAG. The EarPods that accompany the iPhones, iPads, etc. are better sounding and more comfortable. I can say the following with little hope and agenda, “These earbuds are NOT WORTH THE PRICE....PERIOD”

    Scared at first bug happy with them

    • Written by from Mont Vernon

    This review is only after about 24 hours of use so I can't speak to the longevity of these In-Ear Headphones. When I first tried them out (within one minute), I was very disappointed and ready to return them because there was absolutely NO bass. Got on and read a few reviews and tried some of the suggestions and WOW!, what a difference. You just have to get the right silicon inserts put on, put them in your ears good and 'oh yeah'. What really made me get on and do the review though was after I saw some movement behind me. I turned around and paused the music to find him laughing and yelling at me but I wasn't able to hear him at all. Yeah, the volume was up to 75% but my ENT doesn't think I have any significant hearing loss yet so the noise cancelling (7 kids) works wonderfully.

    Be aware, you have to be comfortable with the headphones inserted, they just don't lay there like the EarPods.

    Initially I wanted to get some on ear or over the ear headphones for mass bass but don't like the squeeze of the headband. These are a nice alternative.

    Great in-ear headphones

    • Written by from Amsterdam

    I'm loving the apple in-ear headphones, I'm not sure what kind of problems others are experiencing but I think you should make sure that it is not a chinese remake of the apple in-ear headphones. My friends (about 4 of them) purchased these headphones at the Apple store in Amsterdam and not one has complained about them.
