    Jaw droppingly good!

    These are the best earphones / headphones I have listened to!! (Possibly excepting some $2000 plus set ups).
    They are better than my high end over ears $800 headphones and my high end $500 in ears!!
    Congratulations to the Apple engineers for developing such a superb product at this price point.
    These represent the holy grail of shopping, high quality and low price.
    A few provisos; these are obviously optimized to work with Apple products, did not sound quite as good on my Discman, and they have no sound isolation (just the result of being a bud style rather than an insert into the ear canal, but then this makes them more comfortable).
    The other bonus is the neat little remote control which works really well.
    HIGHLY recommend!!

    Great Earpods

    This is the best invention ever like the way they fit and you get great sound quality I have ever heard. You won't wast your money on these well worth it.

    Shocking! (Excuse the pun)

    Really don't appreciate being electrocuted every time I touch the bottom of my wire. The bottom of the wire (bear the jack input bit) had split, exposing wires that, painfully, shock me constantly. Not really fancying purchasing a new pair of earphones.... When they cost £25 and I can get a perfectly good pain that don't break like this at poundland.

    Just another apple accessory that has let me down. Revert back to the old ones!

    static, in and out sound

    So upset, these are the first headphones that are totally comfortable... amazingly comfortable and the first time I plugged them in the sound was great, nice and full of bass. The second time I plugged them in there was a lot of static, even without even playing any music out of them, to move or adjust the cord at the plug in point made sound go in and out of ears, one then the other, quiet then loud. Just overall awful can't believe Apple put their name on it.

    Loose and Slippery

    The sound quality and the ability to control the volume and song play is great but the the ear buds keep slipping out of my ear. Maybe if it wasn't such a smooth surface around the area that goes into your ear or if they provided textured "bumpers" that you could cover the bud with to help keep them in place. This is a huge disappointment because it means I can only rely on them to stay securely in place when I'm sitting at the office listening to music. Any walking/running means I'll be constantly fumbling and pushing them back into my ear. These earpods would've been perfect otherwise.

    Mind Blowing

    These earpods are unbelievable!!! deep rich bass and mic attachment as well for only $30 dollars! i tried many other headphones that were less expensive and more expensive and im not satisfied with them but i personally think these are the best earbuds within this price range and give expensive headphones ($50 and up) a run for their money!

    Comfortable

    I have a unique shape to my ears, making most in ear types very painful to use and despite high quality sound i can only listen for 20 minutes. Ear pods give me a good fit and the sound is very good. its by no means the greatest and is missing some frequencies that im used to hearing on higher end buds but still makes for ultra clear and "warm" sounding music and vocals.

    My only complaint; the cable is not long enough for me to wear like i prefer. more of a personal issue than a design flaw. Also, i can see where the design can fit poorly in some peoples ears, and to a certain extent loose in mine.

    I would strongly recommend this product.

    MUCH better than I ever expected!

    The sound quality is nearly as good as my $150 Bose around-ear headphones. They are more comfortable in my ear than any earbud ever has been. I can actually sleep with them in without any discomfort. I got them as a gift, but I'd have gone to spend the $30 in a heartbeat if I'd known they were this good.

    OUCH!

    These earbuds HURT! I can't keep them in my ears for longer than 10 minutes. Ugh. Also, they have a strange shape that does not make sense to fit into the human ear. DO OVER.

    ehhhhh

    kind of a let down. apple has been all about how ears are shaped weird and why would you want headphones that are circular when ears aren't circular, but these headphones fall out of my ears constantly. i had to buy different ones because the slightest touch to the cord would make them fall out of my ear. unless they give you them for free with a new device i wouldnt suggest buying them. that being said i will say that the sound quality is pretty good.

    Poor quality - don't last long

    I got these with my iPhone 5 last winter and now only 1 of the earbuds works. When they did work, I compared them to the old apple earbuds I had lying around and found the older ones to have a slightly richer sound quality to them (maybe something to do with the bass levels), Overall sound is pretty good (when it works) and I do like the in-ear feature to prevent leakage. I just wish they were made with higher quality standards and built to last (the old ones did last much better). I'll probably end up replacing them so...maybe apple is okay with the quality being poor.

    I don't think I've got it in me to give 1 star!

    I cannot stand these headphones. The shape is all wrong. Im lazy and like to lay down. they DO NOT stay in! I've never thought I had weird ears before but with all these hundreds of people they tested them on vouching that they're better, its all I can conclude. Spend the extra £ and get the buds. So much better....although mine broke. Sob!

    Incredible product

    Best headphones ever! I tried with a lot of headphones in the past, but always have some problems, doesn't fit, bad quality sound, etc. This have an incredible sound quality, incredible design, and incredible price/quality, totally recommend this product for everyone, no matter if you use Apple products or not :)

    Horrible size, great sound

    I recieved these with my new iPhone 5. I love the sound output from these, however, as I have tiny ears, these either fall out constantly, or if I do manage to keep them in for any period of time, start to hurt my ears after just a few minutes of wear.
    I wish they were just a bit smaller and had a slight rubbery/grippy texture on them to prevent them from slipping out.
    They do have really great sound though. :( too bad that I can't use them.

    Impressed but can't run

    The sound quality is far superior to the previous iteration. I enjoy the new features and the limited noise leakage. The downside, I cannot run with these without them falling. With that being said, they are far more comfortable than the old ones.
