    Great, but issues.

    The earphones are great. Everything about it is good. It lasts a long time as well.

    There are two problems I have with these earphones.
    1-The earphones irritate your ears sometimes.
    2-Sometimes, the earphones will send a shock into your ear and leave a stinging pain.

    To be honest, I took off two stars because of those two issues since that is major to me. The pain is easy to adjust to. However, the shocks to the ear are unbearable to the point that I'm scared to put them back on my ears.

    They don't fit

    I upgraded my 4s to a 5s and these came in the packaging. Before I upgraded my phone I've seen these headphones in the store and thought "that's a stupid design, how does that fit in your ear?" Clearly, I have more brains than the folks at apple. I usually use skullcandies and I really like the suction they offer. These headphones are plastic and just slip out. They actually don't fit in at all. I also have my tragus pierced on both ears. I have to flip the ring up to get these in and they still don't stay. I've never had to adjust my piercings with previous headphones. I'm disappointed. From what I gathered they sound ok though.

    simply amazing value

    amazing value, i've had my current pair for about 2 years now, and they have sadly just about given up on me. i actually have the jaybird bluebuds x, but these are much better for school/work as you can actually hear other people calling your name etcetera. for what it's worth, the sound is actually really nice for the value.

    Best value! But...

    So, I literally tested every earbud-headset there is. The Apple EarPods have the best value. But I wish Apple would produce some upper-class EarPods. Better sound quality, more drivers and so on. The thing is, for people like me, who are a bit audiophile, the standard EarPods are not good enough. I can't buy In-Ears cause I hate the feeling of them. As a matter of fact, a lot of people don't like In-Ears. So whats left are a few earbud-design headsets, not many though. After a lot of testing I ended up keeping the Bose MIE2i. They are clever designed and they have better sound than the EarPods, much richer, more base, more stage and so forth. But, they are really expensive. Way to expensive. Not even the materials are good. Looks like cheap plastic. But sadly they are the best option if you want an EarPod headset upgrade and you don't like In-Ears. So please! Apple! Start producing some EarPod Pro's. I'm willing to pay for them good money! ... The design of the EarPods is already good, no need to change that. All they need are more and better drivers. So the goal would be, to design and produce EarPod Pro's which are sound-wise at least as good as the Bose MIE2i but cost at least one third less. Thanks!

    Useless. And I'm baffled.

    I'm baffled at how such a useless product ever got approved by Apple. The whole point of earbuds (or pods as Apple calls it), is that they should fit snuggly in your ear, comfortably, WITHOUT FALLING OUT. That is why just about every other earbuds out there have rubber caps or rubber lining, some even come with extra rubber caps with different sizes to fit the shape of your ear.

    Apple's earpods seem like a cool idea in theory, but what good is it if you can't even use them? They come with no rubber caps or lining, therefore there is absolutely no grip, just smooth plastic. And the shape of these pods don't fit my ear very well and they simply slide right out. Did Apple design these earpods thinking everybody on planet earth has the exact same shape and size of ears? How could they have overlooked this problem? This is quite possibly Apple's stupidest design to date.

    Nice cheap and useful

    I love these headphones and like apple says they feel so much more comfortable then the apple earphones with remote and mic.
    I have always hated how regular earphones like the one that came with my iPhone 4 hurts your ears here's why:
    1 too big
    2 too round
    3 has horrible sounds not as good as the iPad air speaker (my iPad air has so much better sounds)

    The new EarPods have lovely sounds,larger remote/mic Siri hears me better and sooooo comfortable in your ears plus ONLY $39.99.

    Fully recommend it.

    very comfortable, but they work a maximum of 2 - 3 months and then break

    Sound is good but does not fit my ear

    Not made for my ear. Doesn't fits properly in my ear and if I force fit it it will pain. I am so disappointed with these headphones. Not made for all ears as promised by apple. I would prefer the old one than this

    Amazing

    As someone that listens to music throughout the day, I need to have amazing headphones. I don't care about the cost as long as they give me my money's worth. I've had prior experience with older style apple earbuds, and we all know that they weren't the best. So I wasn't expecting the EarPods to be any better. Was that assumption ever wrong, they blew the old ones out of the water, and they're on par with a lot of my other earbuds. I definitely recommend the apple EarPods to anyone that wants to listen to music, have a rich sound, and feel good in the ears.

    Improved and Durable

    In my opinion, these earpods are a bigger improvement to its predecessor. The sound is more rich and pays just a tad more attention the mids. I wouldn't say these are the best earpods money can buy you, but they're a great everyday tool. And I must say, these are extremely durable, I accidentally left them in my pants after a jog and they went through the washer and dryer, they still work perfectly with no problems. They're actually cleaner now, haha.

    Fantastic design and stunning sound!

    Bought these today to use with my 4S and iPad 4 after my original iPhone headphones packed it in after 2 years loyal service. Had Spotify on the go for the last few hours and it's fair to say that these earphones does Bohemian Rhapsody the justice it deserves- the sound quality is like nothing I have experienced from anything less than the very top-end headphones that you get in plush recording studios. The phones sit in your ear so comfortably that you are not conscious at all of their presence. They do really well at blocking out background noise and delivering some superb quality sounds into your ear- the bass end is truly astonishing; it penetrates right into the ear and immerses you in the song... Or not just songs! I've just finished watching Les Miserables on my iPad and even on lowish levels the phones give that 'cinema rumble' for the bass end sounds- it certainly made Les Mis sound even more spectacular than I've heard it before. A steal for £25!

    Disappointed

    I find it very irritating that these headphones are uncomfortable and fall out frequently. I'm a skier and I really like to tune everything out when I'm on the slopes. I thought to try these out one day, but found that they couldn't even comfortably fit in my ears. I was also irritated because I could hear my surroundings as I was skiing. I am completely appalled by Apple's efforts and do not recommend buying their headphone products because they all have disappointed me.

    Took these from my Wife ;-)

    My wife upgraded her iPhone 4 to the 5c and these came in the packaging. Being an android guy (Nexus 5 owner) and not having any good headphones to jam to some tunes at the gym I snuck these in my pocket one day and I must say they are the best sounding and most comfortable headphones I've ever used.

    Great Quality and very crisp bass and sound. My wife let me keep these so I'll be purchasing me these when it comes time for a new pair! Good job apple!

    Impressive

    This is by far the most impressive earphone i ever had. Pretty rich output and nice bass.

    Worst Apple product this decade

    These new earphones are unbelievably uncomfortable. I can't wear them more than 10-15 min without an ear ache. The previous version were the best "cheap" earphones out there, and these just don't fit at all for me. They don't sound awful, but when you can't wear them for more than very short term what is the point!

    excellent headphones, true quality

    these headphones perform beyond the expectations, they have fantastic sound quality and the treble and bass comes through perfectly, they are also quiet from the outside, truly brilliant if listening to loud music on public transport or in the car

    Awesome sound

    For this size and price I don't think there is a better sound on the market. Across the whole spectrum from jazz to classic right through to rap and pop. Apple did their homework here.You won't be disappointed . Only let down only works with apple products.
