    Good but not that good

    They are awesome, they sound perfect, just perfect. They are really comfortable but just for the fist five minutes. I got mines with my iPhone 5 last week. And I have to say that I was really pleased with my new headphones on that time. This morning I was using them and with the volume not that high they just stop working on the right side. So they sound great but unfortunately they are uncomfortable and doesn't have a minimal quality of the product itself

    Great sound, but...

    All the hooplah from Apple about how it's shaped to fit the ear and yet this thing is uncomfortable as it gets! Would it kill Apple to use a little foam or rubber for comfort's sake?

    Sound is great, but I just can't wear these for more than 10 minutes, so pretty worthless to me.I gave it 2 stars for the sound quality, deducting 3 stars for lack of comfort.

    Terrible

    These are the cheapest, most uncomfortable earphones I have ever tried. They are painful to the inner ear and the cord shorted out the very day I recieved them and tried them with my iPhone. I replaced them right away with a much better and comfortable pair of Sony earphones.

    ok

    Worked fine for 3 months , the right headphone got quieter than the left one which was really annoying since i took good care of it.

    Apple Earpods with mic

    They continue to fall out of my ears when walking.

    Fantastic Improvement Over Previous Model

    These came with my iPhone 5, and while I already have a pair of quality headphones (Klipsch Image S4i), Apple Earpods are significantly more impressive than the tired-but-true Earphones from the 2000's.

    The remote and microphone speak for themselves; both work very well. The Earpods are very impressive in the way they handle Mids (Treble and Bass being on each end of the spectrum). As with its predecessor, the Earpods lack bass, and seem to have difficulty handling extreme trebles. However, the overall sound quality is very nice for Apple 'phones, and I would be hard-pressed to find a better sounding pair for the price. Not to mention, these are significantly more comfortable to wear than the Earphones.

    I recommend listening to these genres while using the EarPods (w/o EQ):
    Country/Acoustic
    Classical/Opera
    Rock/Progressive Rock
    House/EDM/Trance (this is because these subsets of Electronic music aren't entirely bass heavy)

    I do not recommend the following types of music while using the EarPods (w/o EQ):
    Rap/R&B
    Dubstep/Electronic (that's bass heavy)
    Reggae
    Thrash/Industrial/Punk Metal

    They sound great! But...

    These do have a great sound quality and sit nicely in the ear... if you're sitting perfectly still. They fall out if you're walking, if you're moving, if you're lying down- forget it. They shift and become uncomfortable, or fall out completely.

    Bad Quality

    Nice sound but when played too quiet you can hear this awful buzzing noise.they hurt your ears. The worst problems I had were- right earbud stopped working, then when I was pulling the connector out of my device the whole part broke and got stuck in the jack and I had to get it out with pliers.Overall good sound but Bad quality.

    Not as good as previous model ...

    The sound and a price are pretty good ,but the shape of them annoys me...earbuds keep falling out every time I tip my head or running,also a mild wind can blow them off... three months later a remote control died ...thanks

    Uncomfortable

    Although the sound quality has improved, these earpods are very uncomfortable and fall out too easily. Very disappointed.

    Very good, Worth the price!

    These headphone's are by far the best headphones apple has made so far. Being said the bass is incredible! 10x as better than the standard headphones. The sound quality is great, no doubt about it and the design is so well put together that the speaker goes down through the ear canal so you get the best out of the headphones. I recommend this to everyone! And for those people that say it hurts their ears after 10 mins. That does not happen at all, you must have very sensitive ears. Even if you have small ears, I have somewhat big ears but I let my girlfriend use them who has smaller ears than me and she can listen to a 1 hour and 30 min album on my playlist. I fell asleep while listing to music with these headphones and my ears did NOT hurt the next day. Best $30 I've ever spent in my life.

    Properly good product

    I had accidentally blasted this on full for like a split second but since the new speaker cones are made out of paper it didn't blow like the plastics one do. I think now that it sounds good your music better be clear! I hate the hissing noise that I now notice because I can actually hear it.

    Not value for money

    I have lose carry of how many iPhone ear pod that I have bought, it works for four to five months then one speaker stops working or both stop working. The only reason why I keep on buying the ear pod is because when it is working it is very good and that is why I have given it three stars.

    In the pass I have got for a more cheaper one and it last longer,please fix this £26 is not cheap.

    Unhappy customer.

    Miraculous Product Perfection

    These EarPods blew my mind! I usually use Audio-Technica noise canceling headphones and these sound at least as good, plus their size makes them so much more convenient to wear to class. I had low expectations since the old ones never stayed and didn't have enough bass but I tried them out of curiosity when they came with my iPhone 5. I couldn't believe my ears!

    If I could give them no stars, I would

    This product is very cheaply made. If you walk with these they fall out, they do not sit in the ear well at all. If you're sitting and you move your head even a touch, they unseat and the sound quality changes dramatically. Save your money and buy a decent pair of earbuds, these aren't worth the money.

    better than Shure 425 /bose

    amazing sound clarity and details. complete value for money. i have been using shure se425 (sound quality is controlled & very bad) . i dont know what all review people keep writing about expensive products. apple ear-pods are wonderfully designed. highs & mids are cracker. only concern is durability. if these are made with little better material then there is nothing like this. what an earpod apple has designed. superb sound quality. never expected this much good sound quality at this price.

    Good sound, but doesn't fit my ears...

    I like the sound of these headphones, and the volume/mic adjuster is really convenient; however, like the old Apple headphones, they just don't fit my ears. The ear piece is a little too large for me, causing the headphones to slide out. They also hurt my ears. I wish Apple would provide some size options for their headphones because I want to like these.

    Could be better

    Very good sound quality but lots of sound gets in and more gets out, comfortable but only for so long, to hard, don't fit right, speakers go on and off, other than that, nice sharp bass and good echo, can get very loud, and most usually have good sound quality. To be better the shape could be changed a little, gel instead of plastic, better speakers, louder, less escaped sound, clearer sound and better listening quality. Sorry if this review is bad i think highly of apple and love the products just trying to help apple help the buyers!
