    Wow

    I just received my new Apple EarPods and I am totally satisfied with them !! They fit better than the ones that came with my I Pod, and the sound is outstanding !!

    Fixed all my gripes about the previous Apple headphones

    WOW -- as lame as the previous standard issue Apple headphones were the new Earpods are polar opposite. They fixed everything I found annoying about their predecessors:

    - excellent bass (for a pod-style headphone -- if you want real bass response you still need over-ears)
    - no more extra-tangly cord -- this one feels slippery and untangles easily
    - great tactile feedback on the mike buttons -- they increased the size a little to achieve this
    - no more silicone parts on the actual ear bud (you know that peels off after about a year of use on the previous ones)

    Well done Apple! For $29 bucks these are a steal. One note -- they are hard plastic not rubbery, as I assumed from the shape, so they do not block out noise.

    Maybe it's just me...

    Maybe it's just me, but these things still do not stay in my ears. They stay in for about 30 seconds or so and then pop out as if they were skydiving and my ears are their airplane. While they're in, the sound is fantastic, but it's not very useful if they don't stay in. Perhaps I'm inserting them wrong, but if so, EarPods/EarBuds/Earphones should not require a user guide. The EarBuds did the same thing and these do have a higher quality sound so they are an improvement, but still don't work for me. I wish the outer layer were done in white PVC foam like Flents Quiet Time Soft Comfort Ear Plugs. They could use a foam that is less dense to prevent the total sound isolation, but still allow the EarPods to form a custom outer shape every time. That would be a winner.

    WONDERFUL!

    While the old headphones were humongous, these ones are just PERFECT! The original earphones stretched out my ear, it felt like -- and they HURT. Not to mention, the sound was too soft, and the remote didn't work. These, on the other hand, are perfect. The bass is superb, and I hope these EarPods last a long time. I want to use them for a LONG time. :)

    GREAT! GREAT!

    This product is really excellent, not only the price but also the quality. I used to use the $120 and $80 headphones, but none of them make my ears comfortable. The bass of this one is very good. I like this one so much. It works really great on my white iphone 4S and ipad 2. Hv been waiting the headphones like this from Apple for a long time.

    Stunningly amazing

    Soon as i heard the bass these speakers had to offer i was instantly hooked. 1000x better than any headphones that come with mobile phones. These are just a level under beats..maybe even better.

    IT'S GREAT

    I love it. It feels like there's nothing there. I like the fact that when you stop or pause the music you can hear what's around you. IT's not a total isolation or noise cancelation headphone. IT worths the money. This is an amazing headphone.

    Amazing but Noisy

    I tried them today when my friend's iPhone 5 arrived. They do sound truly wonderful, but anyone around you will also hear what you are listening to and that is unacceptable in a public place like a bus, subway or train...shame.

    Sound Great

    These headphones sound great, not only for $30, just in general. Could not be more comfortable and kinda nice they don't create a perfect seal around your ear. Might be a bit too bass heavy but I can live with that.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    The original Apple white earphones fit me nicely and have decent sound so I took a chance on the EarPods. They fit just as well as the originals and definitely have better sound quality. 5 stars cause of the price/sound quality. Sound is not as good as my Klipsch S4i's though, but they cost $100 and seal your ears (which can be good and bad depending on if you need to also hear external sounds, like at work).

    New Apple EarPods

    I have tried a several pairs of buds over the years and I am currently using the Soul SL99s by Ludacris. I was pleasantly surprised to find these Apple EarPods in my iPhone 5 box. What an upgrade over what they have offered in the past. They are remarkably clear, extremely comfortable and sound consistent throughout. Not sure you can beat them for $30.

    Not a 5, but great sound.

    I absolutely agree with every review on sound. You cannot argue the amazing sound quality. As the only one other person pointed out, these are not earbuds for the person on the go. They fall out. I cannot stop messing with them and pushing them back in. I think the problem is that not every ear is created equal. Why do you think that every earbud maker puts different silicon size attachments. The silicon also creates a stick fit and keeps it in place. I may have a bigger ear hole than most. ALMOST totally amazing. Now who's gonna make the silicon socks for these ear buds? I'll be on the lookout.

    Doesn't Fit My Ears Any Better Than the Previous EarBuds

    Title says it all--disappointed, for that reason, but not a big deal (because they came with the iPhone 5) and are no better or worse in that regard than the former model. I never thought of my ear canals as particularly small, and any number of true in ear ear buds with gel ends fit fine.

    Much ado over a marginal product, if you ask me. Sometimes Apple tries too hard to "re-invent" the wheel--you could produce earpods that fit all ears by simply using true in ear with gel adapters like the (literally) $5 pair of sony earbuds I typically take along when flying.

    1 star.

    The Best Earphones I Have Ever Used!! Better Than Dr. Dre Beats

    These earphones are the best that i have ever used, much better audio quality than the Dr. Dre Beats that i used to use. the earphones fit tightly and do not fall out at all, they are comfortable, it doesnt feel like you are wearing them at all. The audio, you are able to hear every single beat in the music.

    I would extremely recommend this product. I may even go and buy more!!
