    Don't fit anyone

    The sound lacks, they don't fit anyone, they aren't durable at all (right monitor stopped working), the EarPods sound 10x better, and they are extremely overpriced.

    sound

    would prefer the option to provide a negative value - incredibly disappointed-the sound quality very poor for the price. i'll stick to the sennheiser px100

    Great Headphones!

    A million thanks to all the reviewers who stressed the importance of the right-sized ear tips. I found the sound "tinny" with the medium sized tips. With the large tips in place, the sound is impressive. Very comfortable as well. So glad I made this purchase!

    Just an awful product, bad sound quality and broken after <6 months.

    The sound quality is only slightly better than you get from the standard headphones, and that's only because the buds attenuate.
    Massively overpriced, £65 for a pair that sound worse than a £20 set of Sennheisers.
    Expect them to break in a short space of time! very poor build and cheap components. The left ear buzzed out after just 6 months of normal use, tried all the usual tricks to get it back but nope - damaged diaphragm.
    Don't for one second believe these 5* reviews, it seriously must be an Indian "like/review" centre churning them out because I have no clue how someone could be so happy with these to give them a perfect score!

    These are terrible

    There is no bass whatsoever. Complete waste of money.

    In comparison, the sony ear phones I bought for £15 are 10x better

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

    Try on all 3 sizes

    Seriously the amount of negativity these headphones are getting is not fair. Please try all 3 ear tip sizes and give it some time to burn in after that you can judge the earphones. I must say to bass heads don't get these definitely not for you but for everyone else get these now the audio is wonderful and the build is great. In fact I used to be more on the bass side but have gotten used to these and love the warmth and extra detail I get out of these earphones. Proudly give 5 stars :)

    These sound fantastic - Try foam tips!

    The ear tips that ship with these headphones detract from what is otherwise, a really great sounding product.(I should have knocked off one star...Apple should ship these with optional foam tips for those that can't get along with the silicone ones!)
    Initially, I could not get the silicone tips to seal properly and the phones sounded truly awful! Fortunately I had a pair of memory foam tips laying around from a previous set of headphones that fitted and the difference was stunning.
    'Comply Whoomp' foam tips are advertised for use these headphones. The foam tips sound so much better than the silicone ones, I am sure there are other makes that will also fit. Buying new tips is adds to the initial cost but the difference in the sound is well worth it.
    To sum up, if you can get the seal right on these phones they sound 1000% better. (Better than headphones that have cost me twice the price and have had 5 star reviews!)
    Twin drivers; 5Hz to 21kHz, great balanced sound...bargain! (and I never thought I'd ever say that about a bit of Apple kit!)

    Iphone 6s In ear headphones - Worst product ever

    I have recently bought a iPhone 6s, phone is just awesome but when it comes to apple ear phones, they are the worst creation ever made.
    They just don't fit into your ear, no matter how large or small your ear is. They keep falling down all the time, i have tried to fit these headphones into three of many family member's ear's and all had the same problem.
    Audio quality is way worst. No bass and lot of noise when used outdoors, these two are at the top list, there many more issues.
    No soft case for the ear buds.
    I some how feel call quality gets reduced while answering calls using these ear phones.

    Now, what am i achieving at the end of this review, NOTHING. People like me would just go ahead and buy better ear phones, because after spending good amount on the phone, you just don't want some bad ear phones to ruin that experience.

    One last point, if you are a music lover and listen to at least 3 to 4 hours in a day using ear phones. Just throw these ear phones in the trash as soon as u unbox your Iphone6S.

    Not meeting Apple standards

    The headphones are just average sounding in ears. No bass at all, Apple has a world class standard for music, don't know what went wrong here, me being a die hard APPLE Fan had a disappointment from this product.
    Apple please help in replacing them with a better in ear head phones like rest of the products best in class.

    Terrible fit - Unusable

    I bought these headphones with high hopes. Overall I have had great expereinces with virtually every Apple product I have purchased. However no matter which size in-ear adapter I use they will not work and fall out of my ears.

    I think I made the word a better place by simply throwing them in the trash.

    Lost the silicon bud and it seems no replacement is available

    After a few months of use one silicon bud went missing. Checked Q&A here and it seems you can not replace them. Yes I know it comes with replacement but they are not really replacements, they are different sizes and the other sizes just do not work for me: the bud keeps falling off.

    The sound did not seem good to me. I even had problems understanding people in a call. I like more the sounds of the original headphones.

    There is a "noise reduction effect". I was not aware of this but it works great. Enough to leave my noise reduction big headphones behind and listen to podcast in public transport.

    Bought this item and the quality is way off.

    Bought this item and the quality is way off. Sound volume is low at max, bass is dead and feels like a 5USD headphones in terms of quality. I think Apple should withdraw this unit as it seems to be defective from the manufacturer. The Apple earpods that comes with the iphone is way better than this.

    Quality Glaringly Worse than those produced several years prior

    When Apple first sold these earbuds, I bought them after a friend recommended them to me. At the time I was so satisfied to discover that Apple had indeed packaged premium sound for under $100. I recently purchased them again after losing a pair of Standard Beats earbuds, and I was utterly shocked with their thin sound production. No exaggeration, these are probably no better than $20 earbuds. I guess after Apple spent all of that money purchasing Beats and developing its marketing campaign they had to cut costs elsewhere. Actually, shame on me for assuming that it would be a good idea to purchase these when Beats is the new face of their audio campaign.

    "Won't stay in Ear" They are good headphones with a 1 year warranty

    I just want to address these people who say it won't stay in their ear and then post one star. People have a misconception of how silicon ear plugs are suppose to stay in the ear. if they are falling out its because they are to big or to small. I have two different size ear holes so I have to to wear two different sizes. Its like women who wear the wrong bra size for 20 years and then realize when someone has to people it out. Any silicon based headphone you have to make sure is snug or you will not get the full sound.

    Terrible - won't stay in, plugged-up and broken

    These headphones are terrible. The multi-sized silicone covers are either too big (won't go in your ear) or too small (doesn't form a seal and comes out). Worse, once the cover came of IN MY EAR and a co-worker had to take it out with a pair of pliers. That was 3 years ago. I can't believe Apple still carries them. I don't have a huge amount of ear wax, but within a month or two, the left one became plugged. I was able to clean it out a few times, but now it has just stopped working due to the damage.

    These used to be great and highly recommended headphones...

    These used to be great and highly recommended headphones, however with the latest model, I've had the left earbud stop working within a month of purchasing them.

    I've owned 3 pairs of these headphones since they first came out over 10 years ago... the first two pair lasted over 5 years and I had no problems with them whatsoever. But, again, there seems to be something wrong with the left ear bud in this latest model.

    I guess it's time to find a new "go to" pair of headphones :(

    Sad day. I loved these headphones when they lasted longer than a month.

    Perfromance is Great Design Sub Par

    I currently have 2 pairs of these headphones and have enjoyed the sound quality. However, the silicone tips are poorly designed as over time they have ripped or fallen off while removing from pockets. Without the right silicone tip these will not stay in your Ear and are worthless! The worst part is Apple DOESN'T make it easy to purchase replacement Silicone ear-tips. I actually called apple support and they tried selling me a part that was "apparently" the silicone tip for $39 when I paid $80 !! It's shouldn't be this hard to sell these to customers and I'm sure i'm not the only customer who feels this way. It seems Apple doesn't focus as much attention to these type of accessories as they do their main line products.I wouldn't buy these again!

    Poor sound quality, don't stay in ear

    I agree with the other reviews: the sound quality is no better than the standard apple earbuds. Furthermore, these don't stay in my ear- I even swapped out the plastic tops for size large.

    Pads drop out and are irreplaceable

    This has great sounds BUT once you have lost one of the little silicone pads, you cannot buy a replacement (despite the efforts of a helpful guy at the on-line Apple Store). So for a few cents worth of silicone, you have to buy a new headset. Forget it and buy Sennheiser, which has excellent quality and offers replacement pads.
