    Great Job Apple

    Apple gave the headphone and earphone industry a new bar to hit. Three years of investment and research payed off. Each time I uses my EarPods they get better and better like its learning my music.... Love Love EarPods Price point was great...... :)))))

    Almost perfect, a bit too much low end

    Just got these in the mail so this is my gut review on them without trying to get too detailed on what I do and don't like and why.

    Pros:
    - excellent fit, quite a bit more comfortable than the 'vintage' ones
    - great isolation considering the absence of rubber fittings
    - the remote and mic seem to be closer to the jaw so that should help with voice intelligibility on calls
    - they look pretty cool in person, the photos make them look a little goofy I think

    Cons:
    - the low end is a little too hyped for my liking, definitely right up the alley of fans of Beats (if you're one of THOSE people)
    It's not over powering at all and doesn't compromise their overall sound quality it's just a little excessive at certain frequencies. Definitely sound like a lot more than $30 though, total bang for your buck and like any Apple product should serve me well for years.

    best $30 dollars i've spent in a while

    apple has definitely stepped their game up this time around. definitely worth the 30 dollars. i was not expecting them to sound like they did when i put them in my ears. mind, blown. the sound is so clear and defined. in the old buds, if a song had heavy bass, it would distort the highs. not on these. plugged them into my iPhone 4 and BLASTED them, no distortion or that famous rattling noise that the "stock" headphones normally do. so glad i bought these

    Stunning step up in quantity from apple

    I've always made do with the stock headphones that came with my iDevices, and when they've worn out I've replaced them with cheap pairs from eBay in the belief that I could never tell the diffrence in quality. Bought some Earpods today and the diffrence in quality is startling, what a step up by Apple.
    if you are in the market for replacements these are well worth looking at

    My first purchase by "EasyPay" as well - brill way to buy :)

    WOW! Better than Bose!

    I just got my new earpods today and couldnt believe the sound quality. I have been using my bose in ear set for probably 6 months and these are BETTER! I paid $100 for my bose headset! The bass sound, the new buttons, the overall in ear design rocks! If you are worried about spending too much by paying 30 bucks....dont even think twice about it. These are worth far more than $30 bucks. Great job Apple...somebody deserves a raise...they hit a home run with this design and sound quality.

    Leaps & Bounds Better!!!

    I have been immensely disappointed with past Apple earbuds. I recently received a $25 Apple gift card though, so I figured I would give these a shot, since I paid so little out of pocket. I received them today and simply don't want to take them out of my ears! Comfort level is a 10. I love the one-piece design as well, since my past pairs have often separated speaker from earbud. The sound quality is wonderful, including nice (and noticeably improved) bass levels! A++ all around on these new earpods!

    Super convenient, never fall out of ears, great sound

    I have the standard apple earphones, apple in-ear headphones and the monster beats in-ear headphones. and now the earpods. I love them!

    * Extremely convenient. My ears never hurt from them (unlike many other headphones)
    * They won't fall out of you ears even if you run away from a pack of street dogs. They just sit there (unlike both in-ear models I mentioned above).
    * They don't plug your ears like the in-ear models. You're not isolated from the world. You don't hear your own breathing. AND you can speak on the phone conveniently without hearing yourself extra loud.
    * There are no rubber plugs that get lost or eaten by small kids if they find your earphones laying around.

    Now the sound... the sound is actually awesome. Less bass than the monster beats, but it's still very present and distinct. The overall listening experience is very very pleasant! I'm selling both the beats and the apple in-ear headphones now.

    Forget the iPhone 5,..these headphones are the real innovation!

    I'm not kidding. Headphones drive me crazy. Doesn't matter how much I spend. In-ear phones either fall out or don't give me any bass unless I walk around with my fingers pressed to my ears. I've also tried the ones that clip around the ear,...but they aren't great and eventually make my ears sore.

    These new $29 headphones from Apple just....work. They fit in my ear. Even though they feel a little loose they don't fall out and they have good bass. Turn on bass-booster on your iPhone/iPod and they sound as good as some of the big on-ear headphones. My go-to song to test headphones is U2 - "Still haven't found what I'm looking for". Very clean at the start and then the bass kicks in. It rocks with these cheap little headphones. Amazing.

    Great sound across all ranges, particularly bass. Had them in for about an hour now and they are very comfortable as well. We worth the $29.

    DROP THAT BASS!!!

    THESE ARE JUST AMAZING!!! why waste money on beatz by dre ? I have a bose system in my car and home theater which is absolutely amazing! but for $29.00 get these and dont waste your money on the high end in ear headphones because they will eventually break like everything else. THESE ARE AMAZING!!! GOOD JOB APPLE!

    Amazing!

    I really wanted beats by Dr. Dre for the sound quality, but these are amazing. They remind me of studio headphones. The sound quality is unreal.

    Impressive Sound & Performance

    I was really looking forward to testing these out when they were announced, and I must say, they don't disappoint. The sound is rich and clear with much better bass and crisper sound than previous headphones I've tried. The Remote and Mic are much better positioned too, making it a great option for calls as well.

    Keep in mind that they don't seal out the background noise or have any cancellation, either. It's a bit strange to say, but you can hear your music clearly AND hear the background noise. I had a conversation with a friend while still listening to music at a reasonable volume and could hear both the music and the conversation clearly.

    Best sound of any stock headphones

    Sound quality is excellent -- of course not as perfect as some high-end models which cost hundreds more, but certainly a HUGE upgrade for Apple's stock headphones. They sound better than any stock headphones I've ever heard.

    Well done Apple!!! You could not do it better. Love the sound and fits just right.

    Amazing!

    Picked up a pair from the apple store this weekend. One two words, absolutely amazing! Sound is crisp, bass is very much improved but not over powering. Very comfortable to wear over an extended period of time. The buttons on the remote have been improved and are now very easy to use. I often had a hard time advancing to the next song or back to the previous one, now with the new remote this is no longer an issue. I have a pair of the Apple in ear headphones and I now prefer these headphones over those. For this price of $29 this is an excellent value. Anyone looking for a new pair of inexpensive headphones, I highly recommend these.

    Great sound, excellent fit & comfort

    These provide a great balance of great sound, excellent fit & comfort. The sound quality is akin to noise isolating headphones (not noise cancelling, noise isolating) without the feel of your ears being plugged.
