    Awesome bass! I love these headphones!

    These are literally the best headphones I've ever bought for $30. They sound just like my $100 Bose in-ear headphones!

    A product that makes sense

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, for what seems like an obvious solution to a most common problem - designing earphones that fit the human ear! These speakers don't need any adjustment once they are fit, they comfortably stay in place and the sound they produce is amazing. Couldn't be happier about them!

    I just bought these, and instantly, i could tell that they were exponentially better than my previous apple headphones, and the sound quality is even better than my beats solos. they are quite comfortable as well

    Not sure why people say they fall out of their ears

    I read many reviews saying they can fall out of the ears easily. Apparently this is true for some people but they fit snug in my ears as I would expect and while they are more comfortable and easier to take out they actually seem to stay in place better! Not to mention the bass is so much better!

    Very surprised

    I picked up a pair today at the Apple store. I didn't expect much, but I couldn't resist opening them and trying them before we even left the mall. These are head and shoulders better than anything in the price range. A 10X improvement over the originals and better than more expensive pairs as well.

    They nailed it

    I've been doing earbud comparisons all day and I'm seriously impressed with these new earpods. They brought out the lower mids and bass much more than I was expecting, but in a tasteful balance. Personally, I can't stand having something shoved down my ear canal but that was usually the only way to get deep bass in an earbud. These are the best bass response I've heard yet in a sit-in-the-ear design. Good job apple.

    ps: If they sound tinny as I've read happened for at least one guy, just send them back. Those are definitely broken. There's no way you'd call these tinny.

    I like these a lot.

    These seem to fit better than any other in-ear headphones. I am able to wear them for long periods of time (1-2 hrs.)... sometimes even longer, without discomfort. I would recommend these to anyone. The case is really cool and functional as well... Apple could have made the case a tiny bit bigger on the inside... so that the cable can wrap around inside nicer and with little more room for the cable. Other than that, these ear pods are pretty nice.

    Great Improvement from Original Earbuds

    The new Apple Earpods have improved the previous immensely. The SOUND QUALITY is much sharper, so you hear even the quietest sounds and the bass stands out. The SHAPE of the top is shaped perfectly to fit your ear, and is 10 times more comfy. It also angles the sound into your ear. The REMOTE AND MIC is a useful tool, with volume control, play/pause, skip song, and replay features. The CASE the EarPods come in is something you can keep, prevents the EarPods from damage, and keeps the cord from tangling. My only COMPLAINT is that the mic is part of the remote. To have the mic close to the mouth, the remote is also high up on the right earbud cord. It is a little awkward to reach up to your mouth to adjust the volume or song.

    Sound Great/Won't stay in ears while exercising

    These headphones are awesome if you don't plan to move while listening to your iPhone/iPod. I highly recommend Gummies over these if you plan to use them while working out.

    Not 100%

    These earpods are stylish enough. If your sitting listening to music and such, they are great. But, once you start doing any exercise activity they pop out of the ear from sweat and movement. I always wondered why the deleted the foam pads from there older model.

    The best earphones Apple ever made.

    Yes, these are NOT perfect, but they are really really good. When i got my iPhone5, i was sceptical to try yet another Apple's attempt at earphones. I am glad i did. The bass sounds beefy, the mid-high range sounds good (not perfect).

    Overall, Apple finally made earphones that don't need to be replaced with a purchase of a new iPod. Even as a $30 earphones - they are a pretty good deal. Obviously there are better earphones... that cost twice as much, but for $30 - worth it.

    The sweet-spot!

    Sound - For $30 the sound quality is excellent. I have read some reviews of poor bass but this just is not the case. Sure there are others out there with more bass, but for those that like an equal balance of sound, you will be happy. The sound is literally shot down your ear canal and makes for great quality without having to adjust the headphones to get that sweet-spot. I used to have to play with my headphones and move them around in my ear until the sound was just right. No more!

    Fit - I have also read many reviews that say the earbuds won't stay in their ears. Perhaps these reviewers have odd shaped ear canals (not trying to make fun of anyone... there are a lot of different sizes and shapes out there). That is the only explanation I can find for a negative review on the fit of these earbuds. I am literally sitting here at my computer violently shaking my head in every direction trying to shake these things out of my ears. But they won't fall out! Seriously, these things act like they WANT to stay in your ears.

    Comfort - I haven't noticed any discomfort with these earbuds in my ears. They are a new shape compared to my last pair of headphones, but they are very comfortable and I soon forget they are even there. One important note: I have noticed that when listening to music at high volumes, my ears will ache from the sound. I blame this on the fact that the earbuds are aiming all of that sound directly into my ear canal. My advice is to be extra careful with not blowing out your eardrums. If you notice your ears bleeding (I am referring to a review I read on amazon)... well that's a pretty good sign that your music is too loud!

    Durability - If you have owned apple headphones before, these seem to be on par with their build quality, perhaps a little better. The volume control/remote/speaker is slightly bigger and more solid feeling than the previous apple headphones w/mic. Overall, these things are made to handle everyday life but would not hold up well under extreme conditions of any kind.

    Overall - I am very pleased with these headphones. For the price they offer excellent sound. The way in which they aim the sound down the ear canal is revolutionary in design. This feature alone, in my opinion, places the apple earbuds above any other pair of headphones in this price range. The only downside I can see is the fact that every buyer is taking a risk when purchasing these earbuds. If the shape of their ear is out of the ordinary, these earbuds may be uncomfortable and/or fall out easily. I took the risk and found them to be a perfect fit. Hopefully you have the same luck!

    Not what everyone else is listening to

    These in ear headphones sound horrendous. There is absolutely no bass and they just sound tinny. I seriously don't think I have heard any headphones this bad before. Even headphones that airplanes give away for free sound better than these. They also do not stay in your ear at all. I am not to sure why Apple is saying these are the best things since sliced bread. Are mine broken from the box?
