    Great Headphones!

    The new earpods are a great design. They fit easy in any ear and you can't even notice that they are there, they are that comfortable. The sound quality is surprising, not only is the bass improved greatly on, but it sounds like there is a surround sound theater system in my ear. Really strange to get used to but I like it.
    Cons for the headphones: They feel really cheap, so I question the length of life for the ear buds. And $29, come on apple.

    Best Earphones Ever

    I have tried a lot of different earphones over the years, nothing has come close to these. They are comfortable beyond belief, and the sound is amazing.
    Every song I play is like an entirely new song and I am rediscovering my entire music library.

    Well done Apple, a truly great achievement.

    Absolutely Superb! For now anyway...

    This is definitely a significant improvement from the previous design especially since it no longer has that weak rubber seal around the headphones. This will probably stay comfy longer than the older model.

    It also has significantly better bass and volume and you can "really listen to the music"

    The remote has also been improved, in which you can feel the buttons better and actually know whether you clicked them or not, through the more obvious depression of the buttons.

    I strongly recommend switching to the earpods.

    Don't fit my ears

    I must be one of the minority for whom these awesome sounding new earpods don't fit well.

    Don't get me wrong the quality is wonderful, but they are only useful to me if I am stationary, which is not much use. Even a small movement causes them to hang on the outside of my ear.

    I have 4 sets - my daughters both fit well - perhaps they got their mother's genetic ears not mine!

    Still fall out

    These headphones still fall out of my ear. I would almost venture to say that they fall out easier than the original headphones. Since I can't keep the earphones in my ear I guess it doesn't really matter what it sounds like. I'll be keeping these in the box for when I end up selling this phone.

    Great, but not for everyone

    While these are the best headphones I have ever used in terms of clarity and great bass, the fit is something to be desired. Apple advertised these as fitting a variety of ear types, but they do not fit my ears. As soon as I put them in, they fall out. I had some of my friends put them in and they had no issues. It appears as though certain people, including myself, do not have ears like those that Apple tested on. I wish Apple would develop in-ear versions of these, since those seem to be the only type that will stay in my ears.

    Critics arent the only ones raving about these earphones, customers are too, and with an average rating of 9.5 of 10, who wouldn't be! These head phones blast the competition in the $100> range and ridicules those in the $100-$200 range by being just as good for only 30 bucks! I love these earphones, the quality is flawless (almost as good as my $500 over-ear headphones), the design is adventurous, giving a sort of "hmm..." first impression, and once you put them in, love-at-first-sound. They're durable too which is immensely helpful for everyday use, the bass from the speakers sounds like it will never give out, which is a great feeling. Also, the attention to detail is mind blowing for $30, small things like the open wire catch for the connection between the two wire-to-earphone cable is a great touch, also, the remote controller for the device being used is a GREATLY appreciated addition.
    Buying these earphones is one of the smartest things a person could do: get them!

    I have owned many iPods, and iPhones before, but was never even able to listen to the old headphones as they were very uncomfortable, and sounded TERRIBLE. After watching a few early reviews of these before i got my iPhone 5, i figured they'd be o.k. I own many headphones that sound A LOT better, and are literally ranging from 100-200$. (none of them are beats) haha. I figured i wasnt up for much until opening these up and putting in my ears... Wow. these are comfortable i said. I then put on music and said.... BASS... IN APPLE EARBUDS!?!? They sounded nice! Moral of the story is that i have actually been using these when in school in lieu of my more expensive headphones. I definitely would say if you like plain ol' earbuds and don't have much money, buy these. But honestly? I don't think most people should go out and spend money on them unless they're free with your iPhone or iPod.

    Great EarPods!!!

    These ear pods are so great. They are a lot better than those Apple ear pods in the past. Excellent!!!

    Sound is excellent, fit is bad

    I run a lot and hoped these would be better than the original earbuds. The sound is FANTASTIC, but they fall out even before I start sweating.

    Sorry apple, close but no cigar.

    More detail but where is the bass!

    There is definitely more detail in the music compared to old apple earphones. Especially at the high end but where is the bass everyone keeps talking about?
    If you cover your ears with your hands granted they sound great. Loads of bass!!
    But otherwise they still sound thin.
    I own numerous in ear and over ear phones that sound far better for not much more money!
    On the plus side they are comfortable to wear for long periods.

    At last a decent set of Apple earphones

    Before you buy these realise that they are not going to be better than a high end set of earbuds, that being said these are the best earphones Apple have ever released, I received mine with my iPhone 5 & have to say I was doubtful they would be worth taking out of the case I'm pleasantly surprised to say I'm glad I did, previous versions of Apples headphones have been a bad fit and quite frankly rubbish sound quality, in this latest update they have addressed this issue the ear pods fit quite well this is because the sound channels are directed towards the ear canal rather than getting blocked by the ear itself, as to the sound there is clear mids and high's and surprisingly a decent amount of base not overwhelming yet not absent, overall this product relegates the original earphones produced by Apple to the bin where they belong, they may not be as good as a £100- £200 pair of in ears but for the money I'd say their the best on the market, Kudos to Apple for finally listening to it's customers.

    These headphones are a huge step up from the previous headphones Apple made. They fit comfortably in you ear while creating a beautiful bass sound. I would argue that they are the same quality as bose in ear headphones. Definitely worth the 30 bucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Very little wind noise

    Like to listen to my ipod while riding my mountain bike. These new earbuds allow very little wind noise to interfere with the music. Big improvement over the old 'buds.

    Such a nice upgrade from the earbuds

    I've always liked Apple's earbuds but my wife can't use them, she finds them uncomfortable but the new EarPods are very comfortable to both of us and music sounds so much better with these than the earbuds. The remote on the pods works just how it did before. The two big differences are the sound quality, which is a huge upgrade, and the comfort, which is also much better-they fit great and don't fall out like before.

    Bass with a little comfort.

    The iPhone 5 need a little work (maps), but over all a great phone. The EarPods are GREAT! The bass and the comfort of the pods are above what I was expecting. I use these often and often on long trips or phone calls. This is a must buy for any apple product!
