    $30 earbuds are better, big disappointment!!

    Pros
    - they look cool
    Cons
    - $15 earbuds soundquality, not better
    - when walk the cable constantly rattles in your ears
    - doesn't play equal, highs and bass changes dramaticall when a little moving speaker in ear
    - rubber pieces lose
    - remote has shar ends which often take hold on clothes
    As a big fan of Apple products i'm affraid this is big disappointment. i bought new $30 and it works much better for strolling the streets and enjoying the music.

    Bass is bad. Returned to Apple.

    I am very exacting about my music. To give you an idea of my taste; I have a custom music surround system at home, i.e., Denon Receiver, Paradigm speakers, monster cables, etc.. You get the idea right..

    These by far reproduce bad music. Bass is totally bad. If you compare this even with the old round earphones you can find the difference. The new Apple's ear pods are far superior compared to these. I bought them and I am totally satisfied with the product. I strongly recommend the EarPods with Remote and Mic (MD827LL/A).

    Brilliant Multi-purpose earphones but pricey

    I bought these earphones to enhance my listening experience on my iPhone and they are impressive. Not only do they work on my iPhone, but they also work on my 7th generation iPod Nano and MacBook Pro. They function in the same way as my old iPhone earphones yet these are more comfortable. The only downsides of this product are the price and its tendency to fall out of my ears sometimes otherwise the sound quality is really good.

    Amazing headphones... Minor problems

    These are the best in-ear style headphones I have ever owned. Sound quality and comfort are exceptional. Only problem Ive found after a year is the mesh screens becoming blocked/clogged. This is easily fixed with a can of dust off. Overall great headphones.

    Good set but Buds pop off

    Good sound but ear buds get lost and there is nowhere to get replacements....the mike works great and SIRI is great.....Apple should make the ear buds available...

    Great Fit

    I've had these headphones for over a year now and they still work great even after going through the wash. They fit in my ears better than the iPhone 4 or iPhone 5 standard headphones, and stay put very well while I'm running

    sound is good, but ear piece keeps falling off

    and typical apple, you can't just buy a replacement of the ear piece, but you'll have to spend the whole $75 again for buying the whole headphone again ... would rather go for something that doesn't have an ear piece

    Great fit and sound!

    The headphones that come with the iPhone, both the old and new style, just don't fit my ears. I have small ear canals and the standard earphones press against the cartilage, making it really sore after a relatively short time. I bought these about three years ago and just love them. Yes, the tips can come off easily if you're not careful. I have almost lost them. But knowing that, I'm more careful when I take them out or put them in my pocket. The sound is great. Nobody ever realizes I'm talking on headphones when I take phone calls. The only time I have had a problem with them has been when I have handled them roughly or let them bang against something. The one time I did that, one side had no sound. I took the top off, and made sure the actual speaker part was not damaged. I tapped on it and it worked perfectly after that. I have had no problems besides that, and when these wear out, I will probably get another pair. I do wish they weren't so expensive, and I have heard that there are other brands that work as well and are half the price, but based on my experience with these, I'll probably buy them again. I wear these every day, twice a day, as I commute to and from work on my bike, and all summer long while mowing, so they get lots of use and have held up really well.

    Very good detail, separation, bass clean but a bit lacking

    These are the most detailed in ears I have ever purchased.

    Treble: Very detailed, forward, airy sounding. Verges on harshness, but just barely passes for silkiness. Makes voices sound very emotional.

    Midrange: Not overly pronounced, but very well separated. Does not sound muddy at all and very comfortable to listen to. MUCH cleaner than that of the EarPods.

    Bass: Quite recessed, but extends much more deeply than say, the EarPods. Won't satisfy a basshead, but it's there. The bass is very tight, not boomy, which will disappoint some and sounds awful on public transportation. Lack of bass does make music sound slightly like it lacks soul.

    Soundstage: Being IEMs, soundstage is poor and narrow. Earpods have better soundstage.

    Comfort: These are fairly comfortable, although the included tips may not grip very well. Sony Hybrid tips fit well. The dual balanced armature design is very small, meaning the actual hard plastic part will not get in the way.

    Noise Isolation: Not the best, but it's there. Cable does transmit significant amounts of noise.

    Overall: Very impressed. If you're looking for detail, clarity, and separation at an affordable price, look no further. If you're looking for bone-rattling bass, look elsewhere. The EarPods do have better soundstage and mid-bass, but are lacking in clarity, midrange, treble, isolation, and sub-bass.

    No replacement rubber pieces

    I was disappointed to find out that there is no replacement available for the rubber pieces. If you loose one (and they detach very easily) you just lost $79. (It does come with two extra sets, but they are different sizes, so when you loose the one of the size that is right for you, the headphones become useless).

    Apart from that, they are not particularly comfortable or great quality. I don't recommend them.

    Good sound NOT user friendly

    I lost the rubber pieces VERY easily just from pull the headphone out of my ear. Lost all spares with in the year. Had to resort to superglueing them on.., even then the rubber part still came off. Switched to 35$ apple ones.., same good sound quality with no trouble associated. Very disappointed I spent 90$+ on the "better" pair.

    PUT IT OUT OF SALE!!!!!!

    This product is really really bad comparing to new apple ear pods, I think this is not fair selling them for higher price then the new ear pods and cheating buyers with higher expectations, not letting buyers to listen and compare before !!!! Put them out of sale!!!! Ugh!

    Disappointing

    I was very happy with these and they were quite comfortable but once the ear piece falls off it's off for good. I have no idea if they can be replaced. If they can't I have wasted my money

    Good Earphone, But need some improvement.

    This earphone has a good sound, stylish, comfortable. But I think Apple should improve bass, build quality, and, more durable.

    BEWARE!!

    Before I was excited about have a $80 dollars headphones instead the cheap ones ($30) but when I tried them I knew I wasted my money.. The sound is simply horrible because there is NO BASS, nothing!! Tried several configurations but nothing work.. I gave them to my 5 years old sister.

    So you'd better buy the $30 apple headphones, are much better!

    Buyer beware!!

    I bought 4 pairs of these headphones in November, and now in March, none of them work; barely any sound is audible through the headphones. For $29 + tax, I would never buy Apple headphones again!
