    Amazed they survived washing machine!!!

    These are such an improvement over the old buds and for this price you get a great sounding pair of ear pods. BUT WAIT! I just accidentally put them through the washing machine set to hot water. I was sure they were destroyed. I plugged them in and they sound great. Absolutely brilliant! While I don't recommend cleaning them this way ;) I have to congratulate Apple for engineering such a hard-to-destroy product!

    The best at a very friendly price

    Apple Earpods are extraordinary, as I put them on my ears, it just fits perfectly. Because it is ear-shaped, it feels comfortable on my ears. Its light but strong. This pair of Earpods sounded just great as it looks, the bass that I hear is just incredible. I can hear every single bass tone clearly. With the microphone and the volume controller, I could easily control my musics or my calls while I do work where I need both of my hands at most of the time. I tried to use microphone piece to record a cover of mine and it just recorded perfectly. The quality of the Earpods are just amazing. It is one of the greatest earphone I have ever had at this cheap price. I am very satisfied with it.

    Amazing

    I was introduced the the earpods through one of my friends who bought the new iPod touch. It had amazing bass, and deep, rich sound. Before, I had bought the apple in-ear earbuds. They were good, but I tend to lose things, so I lost the silicone eartips in my size, so they never fit me anymore. The earpods fit snugly in any shape of an ear, and feel comfortable. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Long overdue redesign!

    These came with my iPhone 5, so I had no preconception about them. They took a short time to get used to, but this is the correct configuration for my ears. Look at your ear hole in the mirror. It usually doesn't go straight in but rather forward. They fit me better without adding foam or silicone fitments to the earpiece. I can't comment on the inline mic at this time, but music control is ideal.

    Hear what you have been missing

    I downloaded an old, favorite movie from iTunes. I've seen it several times and just wanted to own it. I watched it on my 4th generation iPad with this EarPods and what amazed at everything I heard that I had missed before. While the actors said their lines, the background sound came through crystal clear. As other reviews have noted, music is solid and clear. Great value at this price !

    Quantum Improvement

    Most importantly these lose the taped interface that has fallen apart on most of my Apple headphones some of which are admitted fairly ancient. Secondly they fit in your ear much better. There is no loss of volume if they are not inserted properly as there is only one way to put them in. Last but not least they are an audio improvement. There is a slightly better high end and the bass is definitely improved. Mid range is still a bit muddled but for the price these are excellent - and unlike most after market phones do not require weird and sometimes uncomfortable ear pieces. There is also more presence which is likely accounted for by the two position audio output. While audio isolation is improved - which is a problem if you are using them while moving under your own command - it still falls short of higher end phones - see above re uncomfortable ear pieces. The cables are longer too but a but thinner. Apple has done a great job with these new headphones and I've bought two sets already as they are a great value. Now can we work on the price of a Lighting - 30 pin connector Apple?

    AMAZING

    These headphones are AMAZING! I like lots of sub in my music and these did the trick. I popped em' in and it sounded like I had beats on with subwoofers next to me. They are amazing! Buy them!!!

    Don't work for me

    I'm sure they are fine. I'd never purchase apple earphones independently. But they are a nice touch with the devices.
    The new apple ear pods don't fit my ears at all. They fall right out. My ears typically require an in ear speaker. These, like many don't work at all for me.

    3 stars because they are overpriced and there design eliminates possibilities for people like me. I think the in ear style they sell would be a better more rounded option for all users.

    mic portion for phone calls not so good

    If you only use these for listening to music then you are all set. The sound quality is amazing.

    The main thing I attempted to use them for is talking on the iPhone 5. While in the car on the interstate, these EarPods/Mic cut off every 3rd syllable or so of the person with whom I am trying to have a conversation. I speculate that the noise from the car and interstate interfere with the proper functioning of the microphone.

    included with iphone5 and sound great!

    they finally put some thought into oem headphones. these come standard with the iphone 5 so i wasn't expecting much...but the shape fits better (although they still slip around somewhat) but the sounds is wonderful. better than anything short of $100 and they were included with my new phone.

    Fantastic sound but very poor fitting

    I love apple products, but these ear pods are not very conducive to non-normal ears. They keep on falling out of my ears as I have marginally larger ear canal than average and have always needed those foam paddies to keep earbuds in my ears.

    The design of these don't allow foamies to be used and the glossy smooth surface makes it impossible for me to practically use them. I had to use some double-sided tape to hold some foamies in place to effectively use them before I could find out the audio quality is quite nice.

    Unfortunately, unless they make some spacer bands to help folks without the apple-ideal ear, I'm sticking with the in-ears.

    Amazing

    Apple made a major progress with the new Apple EarPods. This is the quality everybody would like to see, and they just did it. Again.

    Perfect headphones!

    Now this is the true definition of "comfortable headphones"... Apple has done a great job with redesigning their iconic white headphones and it's now a perfect fit in the ear, without it falling out every now and then!

    Great product

    Picked these up yesterday, very comfortable and they sound as good as my previous pair of headphones that cost about fifteen dollars more. Slight problem, can be hard at first to get fit right into ear, but after getting them set they dont fall out and are very comfortable to listen to for extended periods of time.

    Absolutely FABULOUS!

    Five HUGE stars!! The best clarity I've ever heard. I can actually turn DOWN the volume and still hear everything! These are better than ANYTHING I have had. Well worth far more than they cost.

    Good as dre beats

    Just got these and they sound great not as much bass as I thought but great none the less well worth the 39.70 with tax here in canada. So don't let bad reviews scare you,these are well worth it,good job apple. :)

    Painful

    The sound quality is good for the price but if you have smaller ears they become really painful after 10 minutes and they won't stay put. After a week mine went in the bin. Couldn't stand the pain in my ears when I wore them.

    Don't Fit ...

    The title says it all. These annoyingly weedle their way out of your ears. The sound is just about passable but the awkward ergonomics to the ear canal means the sound is not delivered where it should be. I have been incredulous for years that apple can get so many products right yet they cannot, it seems, produce a set of headphones that perform. This is an essential component and I would like to see apple include a worthy headphone to compliment their repertoire.
