    The Best Earbuds Ever

    These are so much better than the previous bundled earbuds, loads of bass and clarity in a small form factor. I still prefer my AIAIAI TMA-1's but these a brilliant for when I don't want to carry the extra weight or when skateboarding.

    Good quality, horrible fit

    I use these earpod when I'm at the gym running on the treadmill, and I can say that they fit horribly. I have to keep pushing them with my finger or else they fall after 1 minute.
    The sound and build quality is way better than the older version but I will continue using my Monter turbine copper pro.

    Best earphones Apple has EVER made 4.5 out of 5

    I read a lot of these reviews before deciding to go try these headphones. I would say there are a few with ears not meant for these but in general work well for most ppl.

    Truly its very likely impossible to make one set of earphones that fit EVERY ear, but I consider since the original ones hurt my ears after an hour or so these are the most comfortable earphones I have ever had..

    As for sound quality. these are the best sounding earphones apple has ever produced. Having said that, I only know one pair that I have ever owned that sounded better but they were about 6 times more than these in price.

    Theses are great sounding for the price easily beating sound quality on earphones twice the price!

    Taking price into consideration this is my rating

    Comfort 5/5
    Sound Quality 4/5

    New design ear buds, They just fall out

    Bad design. should have provided the silicon soft buds for the price of the iPhone 5. Or give the consumer the option to upgrade to them.

    Apple Earphones

    The sound is great, although in comparison to the previous generation its just a bit different. However, the fit is terrible. The buds are constantly slipping out. I feel as though the fit might be too big.

    Best option for the money.

    Just recently I lost my Bose headphones. I didn't feel like paying over 100$ again for another pair so I decided to go the cheaper route and buy the new apple stock earpods. As soon as I put them in I could feel a difference in quality. They're no Bose but I would compare the sound quality close to headphones costing between 50 to 80 dollars. Apple finally did its job in creating a quality stock headphone.

    Too Slippery in the ears

    Although the sound effect is good, it keeps falling off my ears.

    After wearing most earphones for more than 30 minutes the cartilage of my ear will begin to ache but the earpods seem to have solved the problem. The shape of the earpod means it isn't pushing against the ear so much.

    They really do stay in when you are moving around. Great if you like to listen to music on the go. No having to stop and put them back in or reajust them.

    The sound quality is nice. Very sharp and clear. Great value for the quality of product.

    Too big

    Well made earbuds would give 5 stars if they were smaller or came in multiple sizes. They are too big to fit well into my ears comfortably.

    Terrible fit

    I must preface this by saying that I am both an audiologist (doctoral hearing healthcare professional), a musician, and an audiophile (lover of music).

    The fit of the old earbuds was terrible if you did not have a larger ear. The best solution was to have custom molds fabricated to fit the end. I was looking forward to the new EarPods because of all the "research" and their "hundreds" of ears that they scanned, as well as the supposed better sound quality.

    I do have small-ish ears for an adult and have been wearing custom molds attached to my oilds Apple earbuds for years. The new EarPods are an awful fit. Lots of acoustic leakage from outside noise in. They also fall out of my ears after less than a minute. If I'd paid extra for these, I would have taken them back; however, they came with my iPhone 5. The sound quality seems much better than the earbuds alone if I take my fingers and shove the Pods into my ears, but that's not very practical. I still am using my old earbuds with my custom molds which actually results in excellent sound quality as the molds direct the sound adequately into the ear canal and at a deeper point than any type of bud headphone would, and when sound is presented closer to the eardrum, there is better preservation of the signal.

    Additionally, and MOST importantly, custom molds provide less acoustic leakage and, thus, the volume does not have to be turned up very high on your audio device which reduces the risk of noise induced hearing loss. I am not the only adult with small conchas (ear bowls) and children definitely have smaller conchas. So, for millions and millions of people, Apple is falsely advertising these EarPods as excellent in fit when really their poor fit will have listeners cranking up the volume and risking noise induced hearing loss. Thanks Apple - until you improve your design, I will stick with my improved oldies-but-goodies.

    Upgrade from Old Apple Earphones

    My old apple earphones were great. When I heard about the new Earpods that it took
    3 years to design, left me intrigued. I gave my old earphones to my friend and decided to try these out. Sound Quality was a little better than the old ones. What I like was bass and it feels snug in my ears. My old earphones would far out.

    Sound Quality : 4/5
    Comfortability: 5/5

    Only problem I had was that it wasn't compatible with my 1st gen Shuffe, but heck I should've known.

    Better sound and much better fit than old ear phones

    Got a pair with new iphone 5 last week. Huge improvement to the old ones. They fit great: very comfortable and don't slide out if you're moving around a lot. Sound is also much improved, although not sure if that's just because they fit farther into the ear, or the speakers are really that much better.
    Only very minor issue I have is that they block a lot more outside noise because they sit farther in the ear, which has me using them less when I'm driving.

    Much better than anticipated

    I usually don't use any kind of ear buds because they are very uncomfortable in my ear. Even the previous generation Apple ear buds did the same thing. I decided to go ahead and give these a run and I was pleasantly surprised. Not only are they extremely comfortable in the ear but they also sound phenomenal for a bundled pair of headphones.

    Still Do Not Work As Advertised

    I wanted to be happy, I wanted to finally have an apple provided headphone work but the same old issue remains.

    Although apple made some overall improvements to the sound quality, the one major issue remains that these earpods/ in-ear headphones just do not stay in your ears.
    Try wearing these and walking for more than a few steps and you have to constantly adjust due to the cheap plastic that these are made of.
