    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.

    I didn't think earbuds could get worse than the old ones.. Uncomfortable and horrible sound. Better off with ANY other cheap earbuds from a gas station. I am very disappointed.

    Bad Experience

    I got these with my Ipod 5g, and a few days ago they got stolen. I bought a new pair, ONE DID NOT EVEN WORK, then I got a exchange, and again ONE DID NOT WORK!! I have officially given up on trying to buy a new pair of Apple Earpods!! I am extremely disappointed in Apple.

    By far the best for THAT price range.

    Im seriously picky when it comes to sound, in the car, the home or on the go. I'm particularly intolerant of bad sound on headphones, why? because my home setup sounds sooo loud and clear that I hate to compromise when I can't turn it up and HAVE to use headphones. I don't feel the sacrifice with these, these Earpods are incredible for the price, you might find something a little better but be prepared to drop at least 80 bucks for them. So for the price look no further!

    I have never written a review for anything in my life, but found it necessary to let you know these are definitely worth your $30! Super comfortable and amazing sound! Buy and enjoy!

    Right side shorts out

    Got these with I-phone 5. There is some sort of short in volume on right side. Works sporadically. Worked great for a about 1 week.

    i bought 2 pairs from the apple store, with the first pair within a month the right earphone stoped working, and honestly their great headphones! if you have both of them :(, with one it sounds very obsolete, and it made it harder for me to hear out of my left ear. With the second pair i was much more careful with them,and the right earphone, AGAIN stop playing music. now i do not have headphones :(. and if it helps, i only used the ipod 4th gen with them. strangely enough the controller (witch is located on the right side) still works on both. i hate to say this (because i really like the company) but i see why so many people hate apple :/.

    Best Headphones Ever!

    I was the biggest fan ever of the original apple earphones, but when I picked up a pair of these I threw my old apple earphones out the window. These new earbuds have 5x better sound reproduction quality than the old ones and have at least 10x more bass. I compared these to my studio quality sennheisers and there wasn't a lot of differences, except the earbuds let in more sound from the real world which I like. If you're listening to a song with a lot of bass and you push the earbuds in your ears so theres more of a tight seal they sound just as good as my studio headphones. I've also heard from people I've talked to with my iphone while wearing the earbuds with mic that the mic quality is not too far from the iphone's mic. These are the best headphones ever.

    Great while they lasted

    I got these for Christmas, and they sound great! Definitely a step up from the old stock earphones that would come with iPhones and iPods. These Earpods fit my ears well and rarely fall out. The mic quality is also pretty good and I can get a good sound without having to hold it up to my mouth. My favorite part of these EarPods are the volume control. The controls are built nicely and I have no problem pausing and playing tracks. Skipping tracks can be either a hit or a miss, sometimes it skips, sometimes it just ends up pausing the song.
    What I don't like is just a few days ago the right ear stopped working and I can only hear sound coming from the left EarPod. This is pretty disappointing and I was hoping this wouldn't happen like it has with other Apple earphones. Alas, for $30, these aren't so bad. I'd definitely recommend them.

    Works better than the old version!

    These headphones/mic is incredible. The sound is perfect, better than the old headphones. People say they hear me well, when I speak using the microphone. I also like the new package that it comes in.

    Amazing sound and waterproof

    The sound from these earphones are amazing! Best earphones I have ever had and they fit very well in the ear. After leaving them in my pocket twice and them going through the washing machine, have proved that these headphones are very waterproof.

    Got them out of the package and the wires were showing a little. Then started using them and now one headphone doesn't even work. They only lasted a few months, but they sound good.

    records well

    I use this product, not only to listen to music, but to use the microphone as a lapel mic. It sounds great. I love it.

    Great for $35

    Was impressed at how comfortable they are. Big improvement over the old ear bud style. Sound quality is fantastic. Compared them side to side with my trusty Klipsch S4's and they weren't better or worse, just different. Decided to save the $109 I was going to spend to get a pair of Klipsch S4i's. These are great and only $35 to replace. When I consider that my original ear buds that came with my 60GB iPod in 2005 lasted 5 years until they were replaced by the S4's, if the quality of these ear pods are the same, that won't be for a while, if ever. Thanks Apple. Great job!

    Best earphones ever

    Never has any equipment arrived with better "default" earphones. I really hated the old Apple EarPods with their thin, soul-less output. But these, my goodness, the sound is rich, bold and musical. Apple has certainly outdone themselves!

    Love these!

    I think these are fabulous with great sound and features, especially having the volume controls on them. I love the snazzy carrying case too.
