    Outstanding value!

    These earpods are a giant step up in performance over the previous versions. They perform on a par with my $300 Bose Headset. The bass is amazing. Overall performance beats my Klipsch $100 in ear earbuds. Yes, they don't block out ambient noise like the Klipsch but I only need that when I'm on an airplane. Around the house and outside activities these Apple earpods can't be beat. Excellent value. Thanks Apple for engineering these.

    Won't stay in ears

    The sound quality is fine, but they will not stay in my ears. One slight shift of my head and out they come. Very frustrating!

    BEST Headphones I have owned! EVER!

    These EarPods are the best constructed and sound I have ever owned, I even ran them through the wash by accident and they are still working! I was SHOCKED when I put them into my ear and the SOUNDED THE SAME! I love you Apple! A+ with these EarPods! I like them more the my $200 BEATS and my BEATS I also ran through the wash, and the died. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ANYONE!

    Great quality for twice the price

    For £25 you can't go wrong with these.

    I go through Apple headphones like underpants due to poor build quality between the cable and the earpiece and rough use on mountain bikes etc, and these are as good sound-wise as the more expensive In-Ear Headphones.

    At this price I can replace these twice and still have a saving over the In-Ear set. Next time I'll skip the humiliation of visiting the Apple Store and being an unworthy peasant though.

    Best earbuds ever!

    If stuff is good its good who ever made it. These are the best ear/headphones I have ever owned (bought a second set for my Scotevest because don't want put them back in all the time and if I break one I have a spare. I can sleep in these, my right ear ear pods falls out sometimes, but these are just absolutely awesome. I've got tons of headphones, Gaming headphones (350$ seinhesizer)... They are good, but not comfortable for long gaming sessions, you sweat, they start to feel heavy etc.
    ... These are by far the most comfortable , may not be the best sounding. But buy a set of SURE ear buds for a 100$ and then you touch the wire and it just pops in your ear, you feel your ears are plugged with something and it's just a real bad sensation. I'd rather hear what's going on outside and have this sweet sweet sound. I sleep in them all the time. To me, they are the most comfortable and I don't care much anymore for over the ear or headphones that are heavy and you get tired after 5 minutes of wearing them

    Very painful!

    The sound is great but after wearing them for a while they are too painful to wear. They are too big and hard lol. I am still searching for some silicone covers for them that will hopefully help.

    Best earbuds I've ever tried

    I normally don't use ear buds because they tend to hurt my ears (the shape not the sound) even the ones made for smaller ears bother me. I also have the problem of the earbuds falling out, even when I'm sitting still.
    Not so with these!! I absolutely love them. They don't hurt my ears, they stay put and they have incredible sound! The music sounds so rich and full. It's amazing. I don't think I'll ever use a different pair again!

    Terrible! Do not buy!

    Aside from terrible sound quality, these ear buds are poorly manufactured! I would not recommend anybody buy these ear buds! I've had four pairs replaced in the last three months! I've taken immaculate care of each pair I've had replaced yet they've still caused me trouble! They'll work fine for three or four weeks before the sound dies in one ear and eventually the other.

    Brilliant partner to any music player.

    I've had a pair of these headphones since they came out and haven't had a single problem with them in that time; very reliable.
    I wear them everywhere, including the gym and to go running and they are faultless.
    The sound quality is better than I had expected for such a compact design and attractive price point.

    Very pleased, fantastic product.

    Good sound, super uncomfortable

    Good sound, as good as anything in the price range. But they are so uncomfortable. I was expecting a bit more comfort than the old earbuds, but if anything there's less. I'll definitely be going back to Skullcandy or some other budget brand with more comfort.

    Ear pod dissatisfaction

    I am on my second ear pod set in less than a year. My first pair started crackling in less than three months. I would not recommend them to anyone. I was told at the Apple store that they do not have a warranty if bought in the store. I don't blame them. They are almost worthless.
    I have a second set that i bought as a back up. I will probably get 3 months out of them as well.
    I will not be buying anything from the Apple Store again...

    The Best Earphones I've ever used!

    The Earpods aren't just pleasing to the eyes, or feel comfortable in the ears, they also produce excellent quality sound, the bass is incredible for such small drivers. Definitely a must buy if you've got the old Apple Earphones. The only problem is that they are very sensitive to moisture, I found that out the hard way when I was trying to clean my Earpods. Other then that, they are one of the best Earphones on the market.

    Superior Sound Quality !!

    Great sound quality,bass response is better than the previous earbuds.Fits very well in the ears and never hurts.Overall its a good earphone.But the only thing is this is not noise cancelling,so it performs best in low noise surroundings.Whatever, its the best in this price and i just love it!

    Review coming from Someone that never cared about headphones

    First of all, I want to state that I'm an ordinary user that never cared about the quality of headphone products until now. I always though to myself that as long as there is sound coming out of it, I'm good to go!

    However, when I bought iPhone 5, I got these headphones with it. When I tried them on I was blown away by the quality of music! I couldn't believe what I was missing. As I stated before, I'm just an ordinary user and I'm not expert on headphones, but these little guys blown me away with the quality of music.

    The biggest different I noticed between these headphones and normal ones is the beat! there is a beat on almost every music that enhance it and makes it way more ejoyable. With these headphones, even terrible music sound amazing.

    I totally recommend it to anyone.

    In closing, I would like to re-state few things. I know that my review might sound a sell-out, but keep in mind that this review is coming from an ordinary user that only know headphones transfer sounds. I don't know how they are bulit or how they function. I only know that such non-expert person were able to recognize the difference between Apple Earpods and normal headphones.

    Wow

    I've had these ear buds for a month they are great, but controls don't work on androids. However, the bass is great. The ear buds are so comfortable and don't fall out of your ears.

    Unusable Worst Fitting Earbuds Ever Made

    These are by far the worst fitting earbuds I've ever owned. They do no stay in your ear, unless you are remaining completely still, for more than a few seconds. You can't even turn your head without them falling out. The right one falls out more than the left because it's weighted down with the mic and volume control.

    Riding a bike? If the movement doesn't knock them out, the wind will. Walking or Jogging? Forget it, will never stay in.

    I can not comment on the sound quality because they do not stay in my ear long enough to listen to anything for any amount of time.

    Unless you are paralyzed from the eyebrows down, do not buy these.

    Great Sound and Design, But Major Flaw

    I want to start by saying that I love the sound and shape of these headphones. They sound amazing and the headphones fit in my ear so that they are loose enough to easily remove, but tight enough that they don't just fall out of my ears when moving around. However, there is a major performance flaw in these headphones. This has happened with both of the two pairs I have had. The audio volume in the right headphone gradually gets quieter. Every few weeks I must adjust the left headphone to be quieter so that the sound stays balanced. By the end of a few months I can not even hear the music or whatever I'm listening to at full volume in places like a bus. Because of this my current pair will be my last pair.
