    False Advertising

    The sound quality is not enough to make me like these. They don't fit my ears. They are painful and won't stay in. I'm only walking around campus and they fall out. They need to be reshaped. They advertised that these would fit ears better because they weren't shaped like circles because ears aren't shaped like circles. I don't know what kind of shape this is supposed to be but no normal persons ears are shaped like this.

    Im really surprised!!!

    I don't know why customers are enjoying this headsets and talk positive about it!!. Yes i agree , it has a nice smart shape, but its useless !!. It fall from my ear once i decided to do any simple move!!. Its very slippery!!. Actually the older ones were far more practical than the new ones. If they added a rubbery cover on the head of the each , it might be more stable in the ear canal !! The solution might be that simple!!.
    Very disappointed and i can say that Apple need to spend more time in working on better headsets for their devices!.

    Not Worth 30$

    i got these headphones a few months ago and earlier today the left headphone stopped working. i am also not as impressed with the remote as the other headphones apple had made. although they fit well which I like and sound better than any other pair of headphones I have owned they are not worth 30$. luckily I had warrantee still and was able to replace them. the new ones are starting to not work to. very disappointed.

    Small Ear Problem

    The sound quality is great, much better than the previous ones including the ear buds, but having really small ears, they really hurt my ears and can't wear them for long periods of time which is such a shame. I'm sure they'd be great for a 'normal' sized ear person!

    Poor Quality and Painful

    These headphones are by far the worst I have ever owned. First, the sound quality is very poor. Due to the offset speakers, music sounds echoed when played through them. Second, they are painful to wear. I have never had any problem with headphones fitting and being comfortable in my ears before I got these. Within a week of using these, i had sores in my ears and their edge had actually cut the inside of my ear. Overall, Apple EarPods would be better put to use as torture devices than being sold as headphones.

    Excellent headphones, excellent price.

    These headphones deserve 5 stars purely for great quality at such an affordable price. Bass is surprisingly deep and heavy plus the EarPods actually fit my ears. A definite improvement from the old design now that they are a solid piece of plastic so they should be more durable. Sound has great clarity, the design is comfortable (even after long-term use), and the price is a bargain.

    Amazing sound and fits in ear perfectly!

    When I first got it I was worried that it wouldn't fit my ear. But when I put them on, they fit in perfectly. Also, the sound it produces is extremely clear.

    Not good!

    These headphones do not stay in my ears!!! I bought the new iphone 5, and was excited about the new headphones. Although they looked new and comfortable I soon found out they are not good at all! I am a runner, and every 100 yards I find myself sticking them back in. And the volume control is not as connivent as one would think. It is easier to control the volume on the phone.

    Took a couple of weeks,but these low price earphones have come alive and amaze me (with the help of a small inexpensive little amp) at the deep bass and smooth mids without the treble becoming too harsh like nearly all the others i've owned over the many years..Will never spend over £180 plus on ear phones again thats for sure...

    Good for phone, but don't work with anything else!

    I got a set of these with my iPhone 5, and they sound wonderful with the iPhone 5, but if you try to use them with anything else then you don't get all the channels of sound. Typically the speech is muffled, and you onle hear the music, unless you hold the microphone button down. I swapped the first pair in an apple store to see if it was a fault, but the second pair are exactly the same. Waste of money to buy if you want multipurpose earphones. They only get three stars because the sound is good, and they are comfortable to wear, even with small ears. I find most headphones and in-ear buds too big and they always fall out, whereas these seem to stay put (even if they don't feel like they are very secure - they are).

    Fit MY ears great

    The new ear buds fit in my ears better than the old ones. But not everyone's ears are the same. So I would understand that for some people, they don't fit or are uncomfortable. I'd imagin the new buds fit most ears. If its possible, see if they fit well before u buy. Sound quality is pretty good too and makes phone conversations easy to hear.

    They Made Up For The Old Design!

    The worst thing about Apple gear before these headphones was those old headphones. They fell apart, didn't fit, and sounded bad. I just got a pair of these new ones with my iPhone and I have to say Apple nailed it, finally on this one. Now if they could just fix that Magic Mouse!

    Awesome sound, not secure fit

    If cupping your hands over your ears while running wasn't both awkward to see and difficult to master, then these headphones would be perfect. The sound quality rivals anything I've ever put in my ears, but they just don't stay in my ears long enough to enjoy the beautiful sound. I suppose couch potatoes will benefit greatly while those with slightly more active lifestyles will need to buy those little spongy earpod covers to help these headphones stay in their heads.

    Never got on with in ear styles before, but these are comfortable, and the sound is excellent. For the price, including a handy pocket case and remote, what more could you ask?
