    Very Good Quality!

    • Written by from Montebello

    The quality is very good. If you like bass don't consider it; these are not beats by dre. I wear these headphones for about 5 hours a day and they are very comfortable. Whether its making phone calls or listening to music I have no problems. I use the small buds and they sit in my ear perfectly. The stock headphones that came with my iPhone never stayed in so I got these instead. I also own the beats by dre tour 2.0 and I prefer Apple's in-ear headphones hands down.

    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.

    Great headphones, have lasted well

    • Written by from Melbourne

    I've had these headphones since early 2012, bought them on a friends recommendation and I loved the isolation and sound quality. I have had numerous other in-ear sealing headphones, including Sony noise-cancelling and expensive Etymotic headphones. I have found these the most comfortable and easy to wear for long periods, with an easy tonal balance and range that doesn't tire your ears out.

    I'm buying a second pair for work now, because they have just the right amount of isolation for reading in the office.

    Beautiful sound, bad plugs (for my ears anyway)

    • Written by from Reading

    I've tried all 3 plug sizes and they just won't create a seal unless I ram them in and that's just uncomfortable. And even then the M/L sizes bounce out from even even the slightest movement while the small ones don't create a seal at all. I can wear them comfortably but then it doesn't make a proper seal and the sound ends up sounding tinny because of it.

    That said, the sound quality is excellent when you can wear them properly. Just disappointed that you have to buy your own plugs for a pair of headphones that cost this much.

    more comfortable than the standard 'buds, but lacking in sound quality

    • Written by from BERKELEY

    bought these when i lost the original buds that came with my iPhone thinking they would sound better, and i did find them somewhat more comfortable than the stock units. however, i found the sound quality so tinny and seriously lacking on the low end that in less than 20 seconds they were on their way back to the store.

    these don't sound any better than the freebies they give away at my office; very disappointing!

    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!

    Best in-ear for price if used with Comply foam

    • Written by from Spring

    I have tried many different in-ear headphones, but I keep coming back to these as long as I have use the Comply foam plugs instead of the ones from apple. Comply makes all the difference in the world.

    Excellent for Motocycle back seatg riding

    • Written by from Contrecoeur

    My husband and I often do motocycle. I like listening to music. As my husband has an Harley, you can imagine that on the back seat, I cannot hear necessarily the music.

    I bought these earplug and beleive it or not - I can very well hear the music. Yes I find them quite expensive but I have had them for years.

    I now have to buy new plugs as the cord is broken - so for me its the only flau I find so this is why I am putting 4 instead of 5 stars.

    Will I buy a new pair - Absoluetly as I did try other ear plugs do not reduce the outside sound as much as there ear plugs

    Terrible and Overpriced!

    • Written by from Needham

    Terrible replacement buds.
    The buds' shape won't fit in many people's ears due to the design. Better if some sort of form sleeve was used for proper fit.
    Because of the improper fit, you have to increase the volume of the iDevice to hear the sound and that there's hardly any bass.
    By increasing the volume, one can go deaf over time!

    Do yourself a favor and buy a competitor's brand. Better yet, spend More money to buy a Better qualify earphone set!
    NO! Dre's, Bose, Skull Candy and other "name brand" units do NOT count as "quality" items but crr@p!

    Returned the item to the store.
    Went and got a pair of Sony earphones, which isn't that much quality but good enough for basic use and it had better fit and bass.
    A decent pair of earphones would cost >$200! Pricey? Yes, but, isn't your ears worth yet? Heck yes!

    After trying many others, I keep coming back to these.

    • Written by from Austin

    Over the last couple years, I've been on a hunt to find some headphones that I can wear for extended periods of time (3 hours or longer for international flights) without discomfort or listeners fatigue. Every month or two, I buy a pair of headphones to try out. I've tried many brands from $15 to $150 which include Beats Tour, Bose AE2, Sony MDR-EX210B, Sennheiser CX 880, Audio Technica ATH-CKS55USBK, Klipsch Reference S4, Apple In-Ear headphones, Etymotic Research MC5, and others. Unexpectedly, I find myself coming back to the Apple Headphones after every new brand I try. They are clear, balanced, and reasonably priced.

    These headphones do not exaggerate bass and the reverb is minimal. If you're looking for a set with punchy bass that creates a concert-like ambiance, you will be disappointed.

    Note: The white rubber/silicone ear tips that originally came with these headphones kept slipping out of my ears. I replaced them with set of rubber tips from a different pair of headphones. Also, make sure to try different sized tips for each ear. For some unexplainable reason I had a hard time accepting that my right ear was a small and my left ear a medium.

Well, the staff was ok to change a new one to me, and no more buzz. Seems everything ok, i can click play, vol down n up, but just for few days!!!!! and can't use anymore! so I have to touch my phone to click the music to play..........

    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.

    Really Irritating

    • Written by from Saint Paul

    I was very excited to get these headphones, as I had been needing a pair of quality earbuds due to the cheap ones constantly breaking on me. The first few months I was quite pleased with this set, but then the ear pieces (the cushion part) began constantly popping off and getting lost. I wasn't handling them rough at all, I'd merely grab them from my bag and they would fall off. I am very disappointed and frustrated because it has now been too long to return them, so I just have to shell out another hefty amount of cash for a new pair to replace them (they won't be from Apple). Apple, please fix these! Your products are usually so wonderful.

    No bass sound

    • Written by from R

    Bought this earphone thinking it would work better than the regular one that costs half the price but, for my surprise, it is worse. No matter which earbud I choose, I can't get a bass response. Works like a defective piece. I wouldn't recommend for anybody.

    I'm a runner and I've owned at least 5 of these cheap things. Each one broke within 3-4 months. And they sell for $30???? The $10 Sony's lasted 2 years!!! I'm down buying apple products. They are seriously annoying me now. Time to go back to good old PCs.

    Really Good . . . Better then beats

    • Written by from Lehi

    I bought these about two years ago and I really like them. They give me a little shock, I clean out my ears and they are fine. The silicone ear piece did come off in my ear once and I got a little panicked but it can out. I just make sure that I keep the silicone pressed on all the time. That may annoy some people but I like them way more then the beats inner ear ones that I bought.

    Looking to buy 3rd pair

    • Written by from Wheaton

    I'm on the verge of buying my 3rd pair of these over a 5 year period (I think). These have been the best sounding and most comfortable earbuds I have ever purchased.

    I an only say again, you MUST experiment with the different size silicone caps that come with them to find the right fit. Once you do, you can buy a bag of 10 replacement (offbrand) caps on Amazon for super cheap. I do lose an occasional cap, but I have a bag full of replacements.

    Other more expensive buds do sound good but have TOO much noise canceling and a super annoying swish swish sound when the cable rubs against your jacket. I like to be able to have a good happy medium between passive noise cancellation while still being aware of my surroundings.

    For the price, I can't find a more comfortable and better sounding pair.
