    much improved, thank you apple

    • Written by from Hayward

    i've owned 3 pairs of brand new apple earbuds in the past and the previous two have sucked. i was lucky if they lasted 2 months before they broke. this third pair that came with my iphone 5s have lasted me almost a year and still work! i don't know if it's a fluke or if apple has finally fixed these things, but i'll definitely buy another pair if it means this kind of longevity. also the remote control is awesome and makes things easier.

    Good sound but extremely uncomfortable

    • Written by from Kennesaw

    These earphones have very good sound. They may even be the best earphones available at this price soundwise. However, they are the most uncomfortable earphones I've ever had. I can not wear them for more than 5 mins.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Seattle

    Worst head/earphones I have ever had. Extrememly painful in the ear after only a few minutes. Falls out due to the weird shape. Weird sound quality - the sound is much deeper with heavy bass. If I use non-apple head/earphones my voice control/siri goes off automatically when I am trying to listen to music.

    You can even put them in the washing machine!!!

    • Written by from Auburn

    Don't underestimate the headphones that come with the iPhone. My daughter left a pair of headphones in her jeans and I inadvertently washed and dried them. Of course I thought they were ruined but I thought I would try them out anyways...they WORK!! Thank you Apple for making them more comfortable to wear too.

    Back to my generic earbuds

    • Written by from Dallas

    I bought my first IPhone last week, downloaded my music on to it and was eager to go for a run using the earbuds that came with the phone. I couldn't really concentrate on the run, though, as the earbuds wouldn't stay in my ears. When I came home, I searched the packaging, sure that somehow I missed some silicon attachments. Nope. What a shame, because when I get them properly placed and don't move, I thought they sounded excellent. They are definitely not "one size fits all."

    Amazing so far

    • Written by from Cirencester

    I purchased these EarPods about a week ago and so far I have only got positive things to say about them because they are purely stunning and the quality is not matched for the price. I would be prepared to pay around £75 for these because I have found the quality as good as my beats which cost well over £75

    Doesn't last 6 months....

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I've bought at least 3 of these and twice they didn't even last 6 months. Unfortunate, because they fit my ears perfectly! Each set began to speed up, slow down, skip, activate suri, pause and play on its own. I know some people mentioned something about moisture, but I've been super careful with my earphones after my first pair crapped out. I think these are fine if you use them once in a while, but I use my earphones 5 days a week (at the very minimum) usually while commuting to and from work. After 3 tries with this, I'm on the lookout for new earphones.

    Disappointing

    • Written by from Somerset

    Recently purchased iPhone 6 & the earbuds that Apple provided with it are very poor fit for my average ears! Agree with those who say they don't stay in. Sitting perfectly still they stay in but turn my head twice & one or the other falls out. Come on Apple who did you test these out on ?

    Great but....

    • Written by from Ridgefield

    I have had 3 pairs of these and never really had problems until after a lot of usage the sound quality deteriorates as well as the volume. I was really bummed about this and was stuck with them until I got myself a new pair of Beats (A lot better btw...) but I was sad that after spending money buying these they went so quick with usage.

    Amazing for the price, especially with foam covers

    • Written by from London

    As these were always falling out of my ears I hunted around to find some extra large foam covers.

    I found the difference in sound amazing - from an okay £25 pair to an outstanding £100 pair for around 50p.

    I've tried a lot of different 'phones in my time and with foam covers they are only beaten by an old pair of Shure in-ears I have (and the Apple earpods are much more comfy for long listening.)

    the worst

    • Written by from glendale

    These are the worst fitting ear buds I have ever had - They constantly fall out - seconds after I put them in! Don't even try walking you wont make it 10 feet. I guess they are designed only to fit a specific ear shape. For the $30 cost that is a ridiculous concept. they should fit ALL ear types. very disappointed!

    Iphone ear buds

    • Written by from Belmont

    I got these earphones with my I phone 5s. I haven't used them much, got the phone the 1st of December 2014. Went to use them the other day and they don't work. If I push around on the mic piece I can get it to work a little bit. I guess that is why you get them free with the phone. I also kept them in the case when not using them.

    Fall out of my ears all day long!

    The old ones had a silcon ring that help keep them in my ears. I don't like these at all. Even chewing gum makes them fall out! I wish I could get the old ones - I loved them!

    Worst Headphones ever!

    • Written by from Far Rockaway

    The quality of these headphones are very cheap. It's only March of 2013 and I've already gone through two headphones this year. After I bought this new one, I noticed that in the ear piece I am constantly being shocked. That's a little scary, especially with this being in my ear. This has happened several times and have switched to another brand of headphones. Overall I am dissatisfied with the overall quality of apple branded accessories.

    Good but.....

    • Written by from COROMANDEL VALLEY

    The audio from these little jiggers is fantastic. Nice crisp, but punchy bass. No complaints at all on the audio front. Ergonomically however these little guys are terrible. There is no scope at all to adjust for varying sizes of ear canals. My ear canals are not small, not large, however these things will not stay in my ears, will not seal out any extraneous noises. Seriously Mr Ives you can do better than this.

    only earphones that really fit small ears + great sound!

    • Written by from Atlatlahucan

    I am one of those people with really realy (really!) small ears and invariably end up with earbuds that pop-out or just chafe my ear canal. Well, these are the ONLY earbuds that I have ever used that do not cause either of these 2.
    I do not use them for sports, only music listening in sedate environments, therefore I could understand those who excercise will always need to buy earphones with earclips or such... but for the purpose these were created, they are awesome!!
    Also note the bass sound is very rich, i was seriously surprised...
    Yeah, this is old news but I wanted to put in my 2 cents worth for those with the same issue as me (very very very small ears)

    Not good at all

    • Written by from Stafford

    These headphones are without doubt the most uncomfortable headphones i have ever used. They don't fit properly, constantly falling out of my ears, and are very uncomfortable to wear. The sound quality is not bad, but not top notch either - ive had phillips sport headphones for cheaper that reproduce the sound better. The final point is sound leakage : ever sat on a train and heard someone else's music in full clarity ? Yep thats the apple headphones. Do yourself a favour and buy another brand : apple just cannot make decent headphones !
