    Two drivers in each earpiece.

    Each earpiece contains two separate high-performance drivers — a woofer and a tweeter — resulting in rich, detailed, and accurate sound reproduction and amazing bass response for all types of music.

      Don't believe the negative reviews, these are incredible, and I'll prove it

      These headphones are the most underrated product Apple sells. These are EARPLUG headphones. They plug your ears, not just sit inside them like other types o These headphones are the most underrated product Apple sells. These are EARPLUG headphones. They plug your ears, not just sit inside them like other types of earbuds, and they certainly don't sit in top of your head like two small cans of cat food. They are elegant, minimal, and wonderful. No other headphones come close to blocking outside sound, letting your music gloriously play in your ear as it was meant to be enjoyed. Screaming baby in seat 34F? No problem, pop these in, and you'll enjoy several dB of noise reduction instantly. You don't even need to put on the music. Horns, taxis, sirens, or just noisy spouse asking why you're a bum? No problem, put these on, and you won't hear a thing. Because they block outside sound, they leave your ears with nothing but the joyous music you desire. It arrives clear and booming (if you're into bass) because its airtight in your ear canal the entire inner ear is used as a bass chamber. It's a shame because people don't fit them correctly. Apple generously gives you several sizes to fit. But no consumer product can have every size needed, so they might just not work for you. But if you do get them sized correctly, you will absolutely be amazed at the sound quality. I really hope Apple releases a Lightning cable version of these soon!

      Don't recommend them

      I have been a fan of any apple products but this one really disappointed me. I've had 2 pairs so far because the audio would do its own thing. The left side wou I have been a fan of any apple products but this one really disappointed me. I've had 2 pairs so far because the audio would do its own thing. The left side would go out and I wouldn't know what to do and then magically it started to work again. I will say that they feel amazing and the sound is great (sometimes) but if you put the ear bud in your ear to far the audio will sound a little weird so you have to be gentle with putting them in. Can't just pop them in and go. Sad that this was my first time buying a bad apple product :(

      Tinny sound and an overall disappointment

      Wow - I have to say that I am deeply disappointed with the quality of the sound from these headphones. I really expected something better given that I find the Wow - I have to say that I am deeply disappointed with the quality of the sound from these headphones. I really expected something better given that I find the standard headphones to be ok. Tinny, lacking bass and clarity and in fact, just lacking on every critical dimension. And for 3x the price for the standard headphones (welcome to prices in Europe!) I wanted something superior. Instead, I got something inferior.

The only issue is that I have occasionally lost the rubber part that goes in your ear and Apple doesn't sell replacements.
