    Fantastic

    I haven't found better headphones for my ears. Nothing else fits in my ear; others fall out and are uncomfortable but with these, using the smallest size tips, they fit inside my ear canal and the sound is amazing! They have been through the washing machine and dryer twice and been crushed by gym equipment but they still work!

    Awesome Earphones

    The ADDIEMS are amazing, with a pretty flat soundstage (almost clinically flat (means it sounds good in any genre of music)), and decent isolation, I'd recommend these to anyone who is sick of the EarPods. If you can't hear any bass, its because you're not getting any seal. Try Comply Whoomp! covers, and you'll hear more than enough bass. With the current silicone tips, I think that they are perfect, and pack a punch in a small package! The mic and remote works great, and if you look after them, they wont break! If apple makes a pair of (non-beats (I'm not a basshead)) headphones that are as good as this, Im in.

    Pros: Very clear, flat soundstage, great sub-bass, good bass, and very good mids and highs. Not using inferior dynamic drivers, (dual armature is very good).

    Cons: Could have squeeezed another armature in there if they tried, doesn't feel that premium, and takes around 10 seconds to put on, and 30 seconds to wind into the case. A little expensive?

    Great Headphones!

    A million thanks to all the reviewers who stressed the importance of the right-sized ear tips. I found the sound "tinny" with the medium sized tips. With the large tips in place, the sound is impressive. Very comfortable as well. So glad I made this purchase!

    Amazing sound with Comply foam tips!

    If you get the foam tips made specifically for these earbuds by 'Comply' you will get great sound, clear bass response, noise isolation, and they will stay in your ears. I've been using the combo for years and wouldn't even think of trying any other earbuds. I'm THAT satisfied.

    Try on all 3 sizes

    Seriously the amount of negativity these headphones are getting is not fair. Please try all 3 ear tip sizes and give it some time to burn in after that you can judge the earphones. I must say to bass heads don't get these definitely not for you but for everyone else get these now the audio is wonderful and the build is great. In fact I used to be more on the bass side but have gotten used to these and love the warmth and extra detail I get out of these earphones. Proudly give 5 stars :)

    FIVE STARS FA SHO!

    I have owned my apple headphones for over a year now. AND I USE THEM EVERY DAY ON THE REGULAR. I love love love them. Before I got my apple headphones I was constantly miserable with headphones that would always break or sound quality would be off in them various brands until I finally found these a year ago and they still work great! I can always turn to apple for engineering quality and I gotta say honestly they are THE BEST PAIR IVE EVER OWNED. Thank you Apple! I was shocked to find more people didn't give 5 stars on here.

    I just received them...

    I put them on out of the box and I won't go into great detail except to say - quit reading reviews and pick you up a pair! I have had them on for about 3 to 4 hours exercising, working answering phone calls - going about my day. Sound is fantastic and comfortable enough I don't notice them. The sound is true and clean.
    I have already recommended them to several associates!
    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

    These sound fantastic - Try foam tips!

    The ear tips that ship with these headphones detract from what is otherwise, a really great sounding product.(I should have knocked off one star...Apple should ship these with optional foam tips for those that can't get along with the silicone ones!)
    Initially, I could not get the silicone tips to seal properly and the phones sounded truly awful! Fortunately I had a pair of memory foam tips laying around from a previous set of headphones that fitted and the difference was stunning.
    'Comply Whoomp' foam tips are advertised for use these headphones. The foam tips sound so much better than the silicone ones, I am sure there are other makes that will also fit. Buying new tips is adds to the initial cost but the difference in the sound is well worth it.
    To sum up, if you can get the seal right on these phones they sound 1000% better. (Better than headphones that have cost me twice the price and have had 5 star reviews!)
    Twin drivers; 5Hz to 21kHz, great balanced sound...bargain! (and I never thought I'd ever say that about a bit of Apple kit!)

    They stand up!

    I bought a set of these earbuds a few years ago and went through all of the various size silicon earpieces. Now I need to buy a new set because there are none as good as these. They are pricey, so it would be nice if you could purchase simply replacement silicone buds, but then again, I did get a great deal of use out of them.

    Outstanding!

    These are far the best in ear headphones for the price. For me they are better than the stock headphones that come with your ipod/iphones. Those just wont stay in my ears. I have Ultimate ears which are great but the Apple sound just as good and are lighter in weight!. And you have that great mic! You just have to make sure that you have a GOOD SEAL. That is the secret. If you figure that part out you will be rewarded!

    Greatly under-appreciated In Ear Monitors

    I'm appalled for the misunderstanding and low score reviews of most people here with respect to these under-appreciated earphones. I bought them a week ago and gave them some burn-in, I have to say these are simply the best pair of headphones I've ever owned for the price. Some reviewers report "tin sound" or "bad bass response" and these are simply because it is necessary to test and choose the proper size of silicone tips in order to make a proper seal. Feel free to experiment with the tip sizes, until you find a pair that suits your ears the best. When you do this, the dual drivers deliver rich bass with clear vocals and treble. I have to advise these provide clean, unadulterated sound unlike the earphones most people are used to which heavily colorize, distort and muddy the sound. Even the microphone is so well constructed, Siri won't miss a sentence even with strong winds and when talking to people they say they hear me very clearly like I was there. You won't find dual-driver earphones with such quality for less than $250-400 out there, these include remote control so don't balk at the price, they are a great investment!

    Simply the best in-ear headphones for under $100

    I have been using these in-ear headphones since 2008. My first pair last 4 years, and I have bought a handful since that time. I believe the sound quality, richness, and detail are amazing. I listen to many different genres of music, from rock, to jazz, to hip hop, to classical, they all sound clean and rich. I also uses these to workout and exercise and they have held-up very well. Additionally they are covered under Apple's 12 month warranty, so if anything goes wrong, bring them back into Apple for an exchange for a new pair.

    My Favorite Headphones

    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.

    Top Earphones

    These earphones have very high sound quality, people have complained about their bass but these people obviously do not have the right size ear tips in. Overall, the sound on these earphones are well balances and you can hear notes you never heard before due to the enhanced clarity.In the past I have owned sennheiser and soundmagic earphones and these blow them out the water. The only headphones that beat these are the Beats Solo HDs/Solo 2, but that is understandable because they are headphones. I have had these pair for a year, a little disappointed that they stopped working in the left year, but I will still have no doubt in buying a second pair. Well worth the money.

    Very satisfied!

    Have been thinking of buying these headphones for a while, been waiting due to the bad reviews I had read.
    Decided to give it a try being conscious I could return them in case of disappointment.
    What to say? I am VERY SATISFIED.
    Very good sound and, differently from the other apple headphones (£25), if the volume is set to the highest level nobody next to me (let's say while on the train/bus) can hear anything. Also No outside sounds are coming in, at all.
    3 different sizes of silicone ear tips are also in the box, so you can be sure they'll suit you perfectly.
    Nothing else to say, absolutely stunning.

    Best (in ear) headphones I've ever owned !

    I'm an audiophile and listen to hours of music every day. These are the best in-ear headphones I have used. They're a bargain compared to some of the other pairs out there that can set you back hundreds of dollars.

    I am a very, very happy customer!! Buy these headphones!!

    excellent heaphones!

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Very Good Quality!

    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.
