    - Overrated -

    I bought these new earpods due to all the great reviews it was getting. People were saying they are miles better than the old bud but in my experience so far these are nothing to be amazed about. If you spend 30 ~ 40 ish dollars getting an in ear earphones or a headphone you get much better sound quality.

    Sound quality is at best 2 and half star for the price.
    but this new earpod comes with much better volume control/mic so I raise it to three stars.

    Please make a better informed decision when getting a earphone/headphone. There are better choices out there. You just have to get out of the comfort and misleading zone. Seriously try other brands. Grado makes great headphones.

    Survived the washing machine!

    These are fantastic! The sound is awesome and they sit in your ear rather than fit in, which makes them very comfortable. Today I took about an hour long job through some nature trails and no problems! They were comfy and stayed in my ear. They also stay in while eating, which is usually when most other ear phones pop out.

    As the title says, today I noticed the case they come with was empty and I wondered where I put them. I remembered I did laundry and during the spin cycle I found them coming out of my short pockets, eeeeek! I plugged them in and they worked, while the right pod's bass was not working. After a few hours in the sun they work like brand new! That is amazing!

    Big ears

    I have big ears, and Apple's iconic headphones never fit. These new ones sound amazing! I can't compliment the sound enough. The bass is powerful, the sound is perfect. My favorite is that I can hear things around me with them on, unlike other headphones built for big ears which depend on going into the ear canal to stay in. So, the downside is that these stay in better, but still not well enough to use them.

    I have found a solution! It works for me 100%, and these now are my go to headphones for everything. I put a *tiny* piece of double-sided tape about 1/8 to a 1/4 inch square on the outside of the ear piece (the opposite side of the L or R) which touches the inner side of my ear "tragus" (look it up). They stay in nice and solid now!

    It does what they say

    Great sound, as good if not better than my $100 earphones. Bass heavy. Slick plastic may slip a bit if you're moving about; ok if you're not. Wished they used a more tactile plastic, but what the heck the price is right. Again... wished they had a black option so I wouldn't get bashed on the head by a grab and run creep. The price is right, get some now!

    OK for free but there are better...

    A LOT better than the previously bundled earbuds, which were an insult to musicians all over the world, these are not actually that bad. Reasonably balanced overall with better quality bass than most at this price (very present, rather than bass-heavy like Beats by Dre stuff), they also have pretty decent stereo separation for earbuds.

    Unfortunately they just don't have the clarity to match the other plus points, especially if they don't fit in your ear well, so you'll missing out on so much music detail.

    I've got some high-end Shure and Grado headphones and the difference in sound quality is staggering. Yes, they're a lot more expensive than £25 - but Apple are claiming the earPods compete and they just don't. I'm not saying you should go out and spend £200 on a set of headphones - but spending a little more opens up a whole new world of detail that you never knew existed.

    Really.

    amazing sound

    I am very impressed with the Sound and the Feel.

    I have spent 3 times the price on earplugs and these beat them hands down.

    I will go as far to say that these are almost on a par with My Bose Headphones at nearly 10 times the price.. i will be ordering another set soon.

    Still TOO BIG!

    I can't even get them in my ear! I don't have an unusually small ear but these are just too big. I am so sad because I was looking forward to using them. Maybe they need to be smaller with a gel surround so they can be squeezed down into smaller ears but still big enough for larger ears. The original earbuds would not stay in my ear either. I had to wait to use earbuds until I received the $80 in-ear earbuds that Apple makes for Christmas. They are described as noise canceling and water proof (your supposed to be able to get into the pool with them). Sometimes they create a seal that makes your ear hurt. They have three sizes of gel covers to get a great fit. I love them and have great sound but they are expensive and when you take your phone everywhere you don't want to risk loosing them or breaking them. I thought since I bought the new iPhone 5 I'd at least have two pair...one that I always take with me and one for when I am at home but I'd have buy another pair of $80 earbuds to use all the time. I can't even enjoy the improved earbud.

    Premium

    I love these headphones, much nicer fit in ear. Better sound and navigation button is easier to use. Premium product. I also love the protective case! No more tangled wires! :-) very happy indeed.

    Better than previous bundled headphones.

    They're given away free with the iPhone 5, and they are a good deal better than any previous bundled phones in terms of sound quality and comfort. However, the hard plastic does eventually start hurting my ears (after about 20 minutes) and they can fall out quite easily when you're running for a bus. If you get them free with your iPhone, I think you'll be reasonably happy with them, but this two star review is based on the price of buying them separately.

    So much better!

    These earphones are so much better quality sound than the previous ones. They don't stay in my ears brilliantly, so it wouldn't be suitable for sports.

    Got a pair free with my iPhone 5 and was so impressed that I decided to buy another pair from the Apple Store - and it was my first EasyPay purchase which I thought was absolutely brilliant!

    Highly recommended!

    not for me

    I can't imagine why so many people find these to be 5-star headphones. They are still uncomfortable, and far too big for my ears. Why can't Apple consider making their buds out of a soft material and give the option of multiple sizes.

    The best earphones ever !

    I was skeptical about the design at first when the leaks came out but after using them, I feel they could give a stiff competition to Bose and Beats ! One of the best earphones out there in the market ! Highly recommended for anyone who loves bass in their music.

    This is indeed HUGE improvement!

    I was blown away with this new earpods! Congrats Apple!

    On a par with Bose for quality and even better for price

    I love these ear pods and music on my iphone 5 sounds so much better than the expensive Bose set I was looking to buy.

    Base is good and the stereo sounds are clear and no longer are tinny.

    For the price, they excel.
