    Apple changed the way we listen to music.. again!

    the way the company marketed this product at the apple event on sept 12.. had my full attention and curiosity! a question i asked myself before buying is: if the product will be even be comparable to other brand's high performance headphones?.. well guess what? APPLE BLEW MY MIND! these headphones is worth every penny.. and makes me regret buying monster beats headphones! the comfort is outstanding and the quality is out of this world! definitely recommend this product!!

    Amazing sound quality for the price!

    I have been looking to replace a pair of the original BOSE In-Ear headphones because my cat chewed up the cord. I recently bought a pair of Skullcandy 50/50 which I will be taking back after purchasing these new EarPods. I was expecting to be disappointed with the EarPods but was greatly surprised with the sound quality. These EarPods have bass that is pleasantly deep, crisp highs and everything in between sounds smooth and warm. Very well balanced headphones, oh wait...EarPods.

    Best earbuds I've ever owned

    Out of the many different earbuds I've had from Bose, Beats by Dr. Dre, Apple, Shure, Skullcandy, and Monster, these really take the cake. They are comfortable, yet offer some amount of noise cancellation without plugging your ears closed. The audio quality is on par with the Bose In-ear headphones I have. Along with the fact that these also have a remote and microphone, they are such a bargain! I highly recommend these to everyone!

    A great update to the iconic white earbuds!

    These new Apple earbuds don't just offer a style/comfort upgrade but also offer a great deal of audio quality improvement over the older earbuds. The bass, note quality, and tone are extremely sharp and vocals are both crisp and extremely well modulated. A great pair of headphones for a very good price - especially considering they definitely compare and even beat similar headphones on the market whose price are much more than Apple Earbuds.

    Beat the Beats becoming a "BEAST"

    The most comfortable & satisfying earphones i have ever had. U jst don't feel that u r wearing an earphone..!! The deep bass is awesome. It beats the highly priced earphones like Beats by dr. Dre..

    This product is fantastic! I didn't expect much from $30 earbuds BUT Dang these are good! I have used Sony and Skull Candy in the past and they have been terrible! I am very impressed Apple! Keep up the great work Apple! :)

    Awesome Earpods

    Seriously just buy them. If you use your old earphones at all these are a DRASTIC improvement. Good fit, crisp highs, and the bass is incredible. Hands down best cheap headphones I've ever owned.

    I was totally expecting to return these...

    I was totally expecting to return these after buying them—after so many people went on and on about the audio fidelity and comfort... it couldn't be true, right? I've been disappointed too many times before with in-earbuds and just thought I was banished to a life of over the ear headphones. (Don't get me wrong, I won't be giving up on my over the ear headphones anytime soon.) HOWEVER, these astonishing little buds WILL NOT BE RETURNED! I have a very discerning ear (I have several albums on my iPhone that I've personally ripped in Apple Lossless format) and even more sensitive inner ear. I've owned a $180 pair of SHURE in-earbuds (with the foam tips that conform to any inner ear shape) and although the foam tips made them very comfortable to wear, the sound quality just did not have the warmth I was looking for. Do yourself a favor and pick these little gems up and hear what you've been missing all this time! You will not be sorry. (They are even light years BETTER than the $79 "Apple in-ear headphones" too.)

    Amazing!

    These EarPods are the most comfortable and acoustic headphones I have ever tried! The old Apple earphones never worked for me, neither did the in-ear earphones. These have the best of both providing the best sound with no seal like the in-ear ones. They don't hurt my ears and the sound it provides is amazing! Perfect for the price to (30$)

    Really Nice Job Apple

    For the past 3 years, I have been under the impression that the old earphones were halfway decent. I thought that only super expensive headphones like Beats could deliver on crisp high performance sound. I just wanted to say that the Earpods blew away my expectations. The sound is crisper and the bass is unbelievable. Now really great sound can come with a $30 price tags.

    Pros: Wonderful Bass
    Larger volume control
    Volume control feels more durable
    Dont hurt after long period of wearing

    Cons- Even though the new design is very comfortable. It can be yanked out easier. They stay in well with regular use. But a sharp tug on the cord will pull them out of your ears. Not a big problem

    Great sound

    I have been debating for a long time about getting the Bose mei2 headphones, and I am really glad I didn't. Picked these up at my local apple store on Friday and was amazed when I compared them with the 4x more expensive Bose ones. Needless to say I am very glad I went with these and saved a ton of money!!

    Fantastic!

    I have these babies in right now, and I can tell you I am astonished. The way they fit into your ears feel like it was custom made for you, they're extremely comfortable. And the bass? Holy kaboodles, these things have bass. The sound as a whole is far past $30. The only thing lacking right now for me is that vocals seem a bit...indirect. As if the singer wasn't singing in front of you, or to you. I have a feeling these things just need to break in first, so take that with a grain of salt. All in all, you'd be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't get these. And again: BASS!

    Amazing!

    Ever since I purchased by 1st iPod in 2003 (now own 4th generation Touch), for me the de facto standard in earphones has been the Bose QuietComfort. However, I like to listen to my iPod while going to sleep. Try laying your head on a pillow with the Bose or any other over ear headphone-not only is it downright uncomfortable, but the sound is quite different on the earcup resting the pillow.

    So in the 9 years since my 1st iPod purchase, I've tried many earbuds, some like the series from Shure costing nearly as much as my Bose. I returned them all. Despite the claim to the contrary, none of them came close to the Bose, particularly in bass response.

    When I first read Apple's claims for the new EarPods, I was skeptical. Of course, comparing the Bose QuietComfort to Apple's new earpods is a bit of a stretch. As I sit here typing this and listening to the earpods, they come awfully close to the Bose IMHO by any subjective measure, noise cancelling notwithstanding.

    Congratulations Apple. An outstanding technical achievement--and for $29!!!

    Surprisingly Good

    My mother always asked, "Why do earphones sound so much better when you shove them into your ears with your fingers?" She was right, of course, because they would better funnel the sound directly into your ear canal. These babies do the same thing WITHOUT the shoving, and they're incredibly comfortable. I was completely unable to wear the original earbuds without pain because of the shape of my ears, and these fit without difficulty at all. The sound is on-par with my $180 on-ear headphones. These are everything the other reviewers have said they are.
