    Awesome

    I was reading the reviews and was baffled about the number of people who had problems with these earpods. I tried them because they came with my iPhone 5 and I have to say, no other earphone produces the sound. They fit snuggly and produce great sound.

    Make sure you keep in mind that not everyone's ears are designed the same and what works for one, doesn't work for everyone. But the majority say they are amazing and prefer them to my Bose earphones.

    If you are worried about earphones falling out, use the Bose MIE2I. You have to yank pretty hard to get them out.

    AMAZING

    I was very hesitant to purchase these at first, but I am extremely impressed! For the price, these headphones are well worth it. The old headphones always hurt my ears after wearing them for a while, but these seem to fit my ears perfectly! Also, a huge plus is that the bass sounds AWESOME!! I definitely recommend these to all!

    Best Headphones Ever!

    I went into the Grand Central Apple Store to buy headphones. These headphones caught my attention for only $30 i decided to buy them. They work perfectly with my first generation iPod touch, my cell phone, and my laptop. The sound is very clear and crisp making it very easy to hear things.

    even more addicted to my music

    The quality of these earpods are amazing, as one who would be contented with the standard apple earpieces, I've never tried any other brands but I must say that the bass and overall clarity of music that these little things produce has been greatly improved more than twofold. Now I'm stuck with these, enjoying my music more than ever

    Amazing, very comfortable!

    This EarPods are the most comfortable earphones I have ever owned, I love them, I can never wear my old Apple EarPods, I loved them for the sound quality, but these are even better.

    Really impressed!

    These earpods are really an upgrade from the old Mac headsets. The fit is really comfortable, as with the old model my ears would hurt due to the tightness and position. These comfortably fit in my ear with no need to apply pressure and they stay on! As or the quality, also very impressed, as it is really clear. Have played a variety of music and the quality is still good. The price is really good and the quality is well over. The best deal for your money!

    Great sound and design for everyday normal use.

    Normaly I use the AKG-240 headphones, but thought I would give these an evaluation.

    These have to be one of the best sounding earbud style units I have ever had in my
    ears. Comfort is marginally okay. Not the best, but better than than the last design.
    The only issue I have is the lack of noise insulation from room noise. These are great if your in a quiet room. However if you are in a mall, airport, or anyplace that has a lot of ambient noise, it's hard to hear. When this happens, instinct is to turn up the music. A lot of the time, this is the cause of hearing loss in younger adults. So if they could design a gel mold like the Bose system has, I think it would greatly reduce ambient noise, and raise the value of these earpods.

    Just make sure the earpod that has the mic is in your right ear, and the other in your left. And be careful when you take them out.just dont pull them out by the cord.

    Way 2 Go Apple!

    Probably the best purchase I have made when it comes to headphones! These are a HUGE improvement from the last headphones Apple has had come standard with their phones.

    Earpods are great

    The earpods are great they sit in the ear well and the base and tone of the music is better they also have a feeling of surround sound when listening to them even though I got the earpods with my iPhone 5 purches I would still strongly recommend buying them separate for anyone who want some good fairly cheap for the quality headphone. Well done Apple I can see these been very successful.

    Great, great and more great.

    Just received them and once I figured out how to open the packaging and finished admiring the design I plugged into my iPhone and started listening.
    WOW!
    I've played with many different brands at all prices and these Earpods beat them all. And at many dollars less. The mids and highs are fresh and distinct. Very impressed. But the bass was the REAL surprise. Bravo Apple, rarely do they fail me.
    I'm listening to the Earpods as I write this. Can't seem to stop listening to my music library.

    Very good!

    This is the first review I've ever written but these Ear Pods deserve one. They are excellent. The sound quality at both ends of the sound spectrum is outstanding. The remote function makes them much easier to use while skiing. They fit my lifestyle perfectly and at a very reasonable price

    My first ever review on a product

    The only reason I came on here to write a review for these is because Apple has literally set the bar for earphones. THIS IS THE ONLY PAIR OF EARPHONES YOU WILL EVER NEED! At least until Apple revolutionizes the earphone again :) the bass is unbelievable and the treble is crystal clear. I'm at a loss of words for how happy I am to of bought these.

    Surprise, Surprise

    Astoundingly, these are the best earbuds I've owned. They're super comfortable, and the sound is amazing. Nothing in the price range even comes close, and I'd argue that some of the $100 buds I've had in the past don't touch these.

    These beat BEATS

    Beats cost anywhere from 150 to 300 dollars but these only are 30. On these "EarPods" you can listen to songs, movies, games, ect. much better than the leading competition. What I love is that it blocks out almost all outside sound and thAt you can listen to the base. I say you should buy.

    incompatibility issues

    although the sound is better and the fit is fine this product is incompatible with my 3rd generation shuffle - even though it says in the enclosed product literature that they are compatible - i was looking forward to better earpods and i'm a bit offended that a three year old shuffle is too old for even the basic function of volume control to work ... forgive us apple for not buying new product every six months just to keep up ...

    You really can't do much better at this price...

    ...and to be honest, I've heard far more expensive pairs of buds, and full over/on ear 'phones that are nothing better. For anyone, like me coming from the previous generation Apple 'phones, rest assured. These are a vast improvement, nice deep bass, clear, crisp, plenty of punch. My personal bug is wooly and damp sounding drums, and after trying these out with both New Order and Led Zep (for the digital and real thing), they perform brilliantly.

    No problems with the fit, in fact they seem to be a bit more snug and shaped for comfort over the older ones, so I must have normal ears!

    Considering the price, the neat organising and storage case is a wonderful little bonus. So dinky and pocketable, and no more tangles. Took all of a minute to work out how to wind, and now I can do it without even looking in seconds.

    Was thinking these would tide me over 'till I treated myself to a £170 pair of Phillips on-ear Fidelios. May wait a bit longer now...

    Big improvement

    The price you pay for these headphones is just right, they are a huge improvement of the previous version and come with a carrying case that I find very useful. I really like how music sound with these headphones, however they aren't as comfortable as they make them to be. After using them for about half an hour you ears feel tired, I guess it's the material.

    Best standard headphones $30 could ever buy--easily worth $70.

    These came with my iPhone and I'm very impressed.
    I've owned lots of headphones, including a $20 Monster Smokin Buds, and the $100 Bose MEi2 headphones. These are almost on par with my Bose headphones subjectively in the few songs that I played-- I was thoroughly surprised. They are a little uncomfortable though compared to my Bose headphones which use a silicone ear piece instead of just hard plastic.
    No, I'm not judging purely on bass response even though that is definitely the most noticeable improvement.
