    Well done, Apple.

    I bought these Earpods to remedy the uncomfortable design and average sound quality of my Apple earbuds I received with my iPhone.
    1) The design is ingenious. The Earpods fit the ear much better and direct the sound where it should go. The vents work wonders for the bass, and I have noticed significant difference when holding them closed in a curious test I did recently. The ControlTalk module is a huge improvement, and now I know which button I'm pressing and I can feel it click.
    2) Sound is very nice- comparable to certain celebrity-endorsed headphones relevant to the letter b, but without the noise-cancellation, so I can walk around town still able to hear traffic.
    3) Durability is great. I dunno what got into some of the other reviewers, but I live in hot hot Texas or cold Ohio, I have used them when exercising (better for lifting than running, they're secure but not that secure), and a couple days ago, I unknowingly put them through both the washer and dryer. No damage detectable from heat/chill, sweat, or water.

    How bout them Apples?

    Great Sound, But ...

    These ear phones deliver some very good sound, no doubt about that. But, they are NOT ergonomically designed. They are advertised as being optimized to fit the ear, but not mine. They do not stay in place and are easily dislodged by minor movements, necessitating frequent adjustments and reinsertions. The microphone is very good, and has a non-linear pickup that tends to emphasize your voice over background sounds. You'll still get background interference, but the mic delivers a good voice quality on the other end. For the price they are a good deal, but unless you have the shape of ear for which these things were designed, you may be disappointed with the fit.

    Two pairs of earphone not working

    These are the second pair of these earphones I have bought, first pair came with iPod nano for xmas 2012 and second pair came with another iPod nano a month or so ago. (One bought for my mum). Both of these earphone sets the sound has been out in the right ear upon first opening them. The first earphones came right by themselves after a few uses but the second pair still aren't working. I figured maybe they could of just been from the same bad batch or something but considering they were purchased a good 6 months apart, I thought that may have been unlikely.

    Excellent

    Ran out of space and ordered an iPod touch 64. These apple headphones arrives and normal procedure is to throw them out or give them away and use my Bose, Bang & Olufsen or Sure head phones. However, after trying these out of curiosity, I use them all the time now. Great balance between bass and acoustic, fine spectrum with the whole dimension of instruments and vocals. Well done apple, I am very impressed, and not rip off prices either.

    Absolutely Terrible!

    I bought these earpods expecting an improvement in sound quality over their predecessors. I have only had them for 6 months and they have stopped working. The music will just stop yet the song will continue to play on my Ipod. I tried out my other earbuds only to find that the sound quality was exactly the same and that the music actually played without interuption. I am extremely upset that they have stopped working and would not recommend this product to anyone. Don't waste your money.

    Quality issue

    I enjoy these ear phones and apple products and these ear phones are definitely worth the price for a set but I attend the gym daily and exercise every day and I find that once I perspire over a period of time the ear phones begin to disfunction and I am about to go onto my third pair. I do really have a like for them and trust apple products but these ear phones are advertised as water and sweat resistant so I feel disappointment that I have been mis lead with the ear phones as I enjoy exercising and using apple products but im disspointed with the standard of these. I'm going into my third pair of these as none of my previous pairs have lasted 6 months to date so far. I purchased these on the basis that I saw them advertised as being used by people undertaking physical activities. Please advise this product is being reviewed to improve its quality. Thank you for your time

    great sound, break really easily

    I have had my iPod for 6 months now. The EarPods are brilliant! I take great care of them everyday, but, after 2 months they stopped working in one ear!! So, I nicked my mother's EarPods that came with her iPhone 5, and they stopped working in one ear after 1 month!!! So I took both broken sets back and Apple happily replaced them. Now, after a further month, my EarPods STOPPED WORKING IN ONE EAR AGAIN!! There is obviously a factory fault, so although they have FANTASTIC sound they are not worth the time I am unhappy to report :( very disappointed.

    Good

    I love the sound of the earphones. Apple, if you guys are reading this, let me just say you did a fantastic job with everything about them except for one thing, that matters a lot. my right ear pod, completely stopped working. the left one is fine, and i never went full volume. I am extremely disappointed the stopped working because I loved the sound on them. and I got them with my iphone 5 so i didnt get any warranty. Please help me I can't afford a new pair right now

    My Earholes Hurt

    These were supposedly designed to fit the ear perfectly, then why does it feel like my ears have been stretched out by ron jeremy? I can't leave these in for more than 20-30 minutes without being really uncomfortable. I wouldn't purchase. Two stars only because they sound decent. Otherwise it would be 1 star

    Worst earphones I've seen so far

    These are simply the worst earphones I've used so far - almost no bass at all, mid freqs are cut, high freqs are more or less ok, but no clarity and a huge waste of money.

    It's such a shame Apple supplies them with iPhone - the device capable of producing a very good sound...

    Perfect earbuds in a perfect prize

    Hi Apple and Apple users,

    When I owned the 5th gen. ipod Nano, it came with the previous Apple Earphones. I used these earphones and the comfort was great, but when it comes time the rubber that goes around the ear piece peeled off,they irritates my ears. But these Apple Ear Pods do the contrary of these issues. They are comfort, excellent sound, comparing the previous one, and lightweight, because you can't noticed is they sill in your ears when you're running or excercising. If the rate can let me give more than five stars, I give the double,10. Excellent job, Apple and Steve Jobs will be proud because of this success.

    Great earphones

    I have to say when I got these Earpods I was impressed by the sound quality, they're almost as good as my Shure SE-215's, they're just a tiny bit muffled in comparison. I almost prefer the Apple Earpods as there is more warmth to the sound of the audio especially in music compared with the SE-215's.

    The best in-ear headphones I’ve used.

    After years of bad experiences with earphones —sound loss, uncomfortable earpieces, poor design, lack of bass, and constant ejection from my (apparently) unusually shaped ears, to name a few — I switched some time ago from earphones to headphones. The sound quality was great, but it was a little annoying to have to lug a pair of cans around.

    A need for compactness and Apple design led to me buying a pair of EarPods. I was immediately blown away by the sound quality of these things. The bass response was enough to rival my headphones, and blows all other in-ear headphones away. The comfort was staggering, and even giving them a good tug on the cable didn't shift them from my ears. Well worth purchasing, and rivals even professional earphones.

    THE BEST EARBUS EVER OWNED

    I got these today and I'm absolutely amazed on the sound quality. The bass is awesome, very nice clear sound. For apple to think of the shape is crazy, it fits perfect in any ear, the feel, sound, and look amazing. I would like to see try Samsung to make earbuds like these, maybe you would be able to turn up the volume by moving your hand upward or something, lol. But once again Apple has created something that every loves wahoo go team apple.

    Was sceptical - Now Impressed

    Silicone ear buds were driving me crackers ! Went out without my Beats Studio headphones so purchased these in the local Apple Store. Really impressive sound, no silicone irritation.
    I prefer these to much, much dearer "earbud" headphones, and they're only £25 !!
    I know earphones are a really personal thing, but if silicone drives you mad, or you just want some low cost great sounding earphones, I think they're really worth considering :-)
    Glad I purchased them

    One word... amazing!

    Even though these earpods look like something out of a sci-fi movie, they work amazing. I don't understand how these earphones have any reviews under 4 stars, they stay in my ears 100 times better than the old earphones and they sound 1,000 times better than the old ones too!

    Nano is happy!

    My Nano, so old they don't even make em anymore, is as thrilled as I am by the new earpods! I've never gotten such great sound out of a device before. Forget the 7dollar, or even 20dollar, earphones from Walgreens, only Apple knows how to make them! I am grateful.
