    Pretty good, just not durable.

    • Written by from Fresno

    I run on the treadmill and do the elliptical bike with my iPhone 5 and Apple EarPods while listening to Spotify. These stay in my ears pretty well and the remote is really handy because I can change the volume, pause/play, skip, go back/forward, pick up/ignore calls, and use Siri with just the remote by clicking the button in a specific way. I guess for some people, these don't fit very well, but they fit me pretty well. Some complaints that I have is that I hate how dirty the cord can get and how the point where the cord and jack meet, the lining around it can rip easily if you bend it a lot. This also happens with apple chargers too. I wish they had an L shape-ended cord instead. Other than that, the sound quality is great. If you're not wearing them properly, I can see how they might sound bad like when I wear them in the wrong ears.

    Has anyone thought of having these in black? That'd be awesome!

    Garbage

    • Written by from Waialua

    You would think buying a high end smartphone like the iPhone 5s, apple would at least produce a decent pair of headphones. These EarPods were made for dwarfs!!! The cord is hella waaay too short for the average person when you got your phone in your pants pocket making them pop out constantly and tugging on your ear. Garbage...do not buy!!!!

    To be honest I bought EarPods two weeks ago and I use it at other device.What I can say is:"This is just amazing,I never hear such a realistic music ever on any earphone or any headset besides that live show." I will just have to wait for few more months when the next generation iPhone is out then I am going to get one.Best from Apple.

    Good sound, bad fit

    • Written by from Kingston Springs

    If Apple had spent as much effort with the fit as they did with the sound, these EarPods could potentially earn a five out of five. Unfortunately, the design of the EarPods is clumsy and does not stay in your ear except when you are perfectly still. Running especially presents a challenge when your EarPods are continually falling out every 30 seconds or so. I am disappointed with Apple and I hope they do better with their next product.

    Worth The Price!!!

    • Written by from Chula Vista

    These headphones may be the best "High-End" cheap headpohnoes that you could buy off of apple! Literally, these headphones are really durable considering the fact that one accidental wash in the washing machine and they still work! this is a must buy for anyone who enjoys music!

    Great but don't last as long

    • Written by from Yulee

    I so love these EarPods, they fit great, they sound great, and they're just all around awesome… except the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. The left earPod broke or lost connection or whatever after less than 6 months. I've had cheaper earphones that lasted way longer than that, and for $30 they should be lasting a bit longer than some $10 pair. But other than that, I've had no problems, they're pretty sweet.

    AVOID - they always fall out!

    • Written by from Hook

    These don't fit - they are nowhere near. The earpods (like those with the iPhone 5s) simply drop out of the ear even when sitting still! Due to the super-poor fit the sound quality is terrible too.

    They are good but the right earbud broke within a month

    • Written by from north hollywood

    I would use them to exercise and in a short period of time the right ear stopped working. I thought they would be too good of quality to break so fast but I don't know.

    Uncomfortable seating on ear

    I was very fond of apple products especially for its awesome music. I recently purchased its earphone after purchasing ipad air. It is not even sitting properly in ear. I'm disappointed apple. Do something.

    Improved Sound Quality, Fitting Issues

    • Written by from Irvine

    Sound quality is better than previous ear buds but what's the point of developing an improved sound when they're not going to fit the widest range of users. Controls and mic are on par with what to expect from Apple -- they work and they work well.

    Not comfortable, stopped working <3mo

    • Written by from Seattle

    I am extremely gentle with my electronics, so it was a big surprise when my earbuds stopped working in less than 3 months. To add to the insult, the earbud that stopped working did not fit into my ear very well, so it was already an annoyance. I have never been happy with Apple's earbuds, and I have had multiple iphones, ipods.

    Absolutely awesome headphones

    • Written by from Liverpool

    These are the best headphones that $30 can buy. After my headphones from my original gen ipod touch were getting a bit frayed I needed a new pair, I initially didn't want to spend $30 on headphones but, I had tried imitation ones that were anywhere between $5-18 and they were just horrible so I returned all those and asked for these for father's day these absolutely rock!

    Amazing Headphones, Amazing Price. Period.

    • Written by from North Attleboro

    I have spent over a month using these Apple EarPods and I am in love with them. I play a lot of songs that require background bass and acoustic sound. These definitely beat the standards. I have even purchased Beats previously, and yet still, these EarPods take the win!

    Bring back the old ones

    • Written by from London

    They don't fit my ears, so they fall out if god forbid I turn my head. The poor fit also means they are very quiet unless I hold them in with my fingers.
    There is something about the rubbery cord that means they are always tangled as if someone had deliberately tied them in nots every time I need them.

    Nice improvement

    • Written by from Portland

    First, I think all earbuds are flimsy by nature - it's the trade off you make for small portable headphones. They will fall apart if you exercise with them or carry them around in your pocket or bag, even if you pay $120 for the Bose ones.

    Second, to those who can't get the buds to stay in their ears and find it has lousy sound quality: is it possible that you were not aware of the new feature, which is that they actually have a dedicated left and right bud? They won't fit in your ears if they are swapped and the sound will suffer. But all people's ears are different, so it's possible they are not right for everyone.

    I find they fit nicely, feel comfortable and the sound is great. Mine are starting to act funny after over two years, but I expected that with the abuse I put them through.
