    My ear pods doesn't ears!

    Ok for the love of God when will Apple make earphones (EarPods) that actually stay in your ears! I mean really, come on!

    I was hopeful and the sound is amazing, they look very cool, but then I took two steps forward and yep you guessed it, they fall out! I bicycle everywhere and like to listen to music while I ride (on low volume, so don't freak) , but if they fall out all the time that will be annoying!

    My advice is that if you are mostly going to sit and listen to music these earphones (EarPods) are a very good value for your money, but if you like to walk more than one step at a time, don't bother you will be putting them back in your ears so much that it will take to an hour just to walk to the end of the block.

    Simply amazing!

    I've spent hundreds of dollars over the years on earphones, headphones and the like, I can safely say that none I have purchased whether they be 'Beats' or high end Bose could hold a flame to the quality, comfort and performance that these new EarPods have especially considering the price. Must have for any music lover!! So clear, mids are amazing, base is far above average if there is an inch of doubt whether to buy these or not just do it! You won't regret it even if they aren't the best you've tried, for the price you'll find no better so jus do it! :)

    sound great but very uncomfortable

    The sound on these are really good, especially compared to the old apple headphones. I also really like the remote. The main downfall though is comfort. After about 15 min my ears are killing me.

    These headphones rock

    I love them at first I was curious about buying a set of apple headphones but now that I got them I am not disappointed these indeed are much better if not perfect.
    I love how they fit my ears perfectly and the controls do so much.
    Also perfect highs and lows with bass is awesome and balanced.
    Everything's well thought out here thanks apple I love them!
    Well worth every dollar spent

    Ouch

    Got these to replace my original ear buds but couldn't get use to them. They actually hurt while I had them on. I miss my old ear buds - I wish they'd keep making them.

    Great headphones.

    I got these with my new iPhone and I couldn't love them more. They have a good bass, and they fit in my ear very well. The sound they produce is crystal clear and I use headphones all day every day. I love my headphones.

    Very happy

    Have just spent a week at work using these on my iPhone 4, listening to podcasts & music whilst taking the odd phone call.
    The fit, sound quality and ease of use are simply perfect.
    They are far far superior to the original iPhone standard earphones.
    When buying I was not too happy with paying out another £25, but after this week it has been clearly money well spent and are thoroughly recommended.

    no surprises here.

    These would be great headphones if they did not literally fall out of my ears the moment I touch the remote control in the slightest.

    I look forward to the day when Apple actually designs headphones for actual human ears.

    Not a gimmick ...

    ... possibly a breakthrough. Fantastic sound quality. Very comfortable and stable in the ears, too.

    Not very practical as it claims

    Though the sound quality is impressive, having no noise cancellation makes it pretty useless in a crowded environment or even when at home with the background noise (eg- TV). The background noise even though small can be extremely distracting. You tend to push hard each piece inside your ear. It only hurts your ears but you just cant get rid of the noise.

    The ergonomic design as marketed by Apple is not that great since the earpods fall off pretty easily.

    "Designed to direct the sound into the ear" and all that stuff would work great only if the earpods fit snugly in each ear and if you're able to enjoy the music without outside noise. Its 'okay' if you got the earpods bundled with the iPhone but certainly not worth buying them separately. I regret buying them.

    Giving 2 stars only for the sound quality which unfortunately you can enjoy only in a calm environment.

    Fall straight out

    Just received these and they won't stay in my ears at all. When Apple say they stay in, I would like to know how may people they tested them on and for how many they did not stay put. My ears may not be suitable but that will be true for others. So my advice would be, don't buy until you have tried a set to check they stay in your ear. Can't comment on the sound quality for obvious reasons.

    Just one word --- Mind blowing

    I can't believe the quality and price of this new product from apple. I fall in love with these headphones every time I listen to music.
    Perfect bass and sound quality matches headphones worth probably £100.
    Thanks Apple you rock.

    luv em'!

    I absolutely love these EarPods. I noticed some people think that EarPods do not work with other smartphones. It does (partially). I tried it on my friends Samsung Galaxy S3 and both speakers work, the mic works and the middle button works. The volume + and - don't work. That is it. I hoped I made this strait.
    The EarPods are the best IN-EAR headphones I've ever heard. There are better over-ear headphones than this but these are the best in-ears.
    Thanks Apple for these EarPods :-)

    Best buy ever!!

    Just got my earpods today and I have to say this is the best earphones you can get for $28. Bass and sound quality much better than some of my $50 in-ear earphones. Comfy and it sticks in the ear. Money well spent for me!!

    Alternate way of wearing these

    Put the opposites in ears(L in R, R in L) with the stem up and the cable going up and over-behind ear. Volume control ends up on left side dangling behind left earlobe. Stays in my ears better this way than how they were intended.

    Earpods

    These are great! You are able to hear everything you need to hear and when you are talking to someone else they have no trouble being able to hear you as well. The only thing I would say is i wish they were a little cheaper! They are deffently worth having and if you haven't tried them you should!

    A Major Improvement

    Better sound quality, better fit, nice design, and better construction compared to the traditional earphones that came with my iPhone 4S Nice job, Apple!

    Horrible

    I am very perplexed as to how Apple could make worse earbuds as the ones that came with my other iPhones. But somehow the genius engineers at Apple did it again, but even on a greater scale of failure than previous thought.
    The new EarPods do not stay in my ear and the sound quality is extremely poor.
