    Sound great...won't stay in place

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    I love the sound quality of the new EarPods but they do not stay in my ear for more than a few seconds before I have to adjust them. I have all but given up on them at this point.

    A huge improvement!

    • Written by from Melbourne

    Compared to the previous entry level earphones made by apple, these are a MASSIVE improvement!! Might take a little time to get them to fit well but the audio quality is great with deep bass. Highly recommended!

    Simply amazing

    • Written by from Knoxville

    These earphone are the best sounding earphones I've ever tried and they fit good and are comfortable. I can move around and walk and they won't fall out. But they sometimes they work there way out when doing a lot of moving such as running or bouncing. Over all these are very amazing earphones and a huge improvement from Apples last earphones and they are comfortable and the best sound you will find for $30.

    Comfort & Quality!

    • Written by from Tampa

    These are a huge improvement over the ear-buds Apple and every other company makes.

    The shape is pretty interesting, but it actually does feel more comfortable when you wear them, even for extended periods. The fit is even more secure than the circular design. As a photographer, I need to get into some pretty awkward positions, but they stay put until I take them out, and that's a first!

    Their quality is amazing as well. I've never been one to buy expensive headphones, but I do boost the bass in my car. It's really nice that with these headphones I can actually feel the songs! But if I want to turn it down, there's always the settings in the phone to get my music the way I like it!

    Amazing sound!

    • Written by from salem

    I recommend anyone and everyone to get these. Their cheap for the quality they give.
    Music sounds so clear the bass tones are amazing as well as the treble. Their so comfortable that even my mom who has small ears loves them. They don't fall off so easily and they also feel like their not even there. These are really great headphones :)

    Worth every penny

    • Written by from Oconto

    Absolutely worth every penny. I really don't think you can do better for $30. The only complaint I have is that the pause/play button's feedback isn't always correct: you can easily push light enough that it will click but not register anything. It's bad enough that if I try, I can do it almost every time. So...click hard: problem mostly solved.

    Ear ache isn't worth the hype

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    I have been using this headphone for the past two days now and there isn't much good as well as bad to report.

    Comfort: Sure the redesign is nice and is slightly a better fit that the previous model but even after I get them settled into my ears for about 15 minutes my ears start feeling sore. I tried to set them in different positions to see which is best but its the same results where my ears get sore. Maybe if I have surgery to remove some my ears' cartilage then the headphones might fit and feel better.

    Sound: Much better: They do have a better frequency response and better dynamics.

    Remote: The finger press response is SO MUCH more better! The clicks feel solid and smooth compared to the previous model where I found myself having to click multiple times for the correct sequence.

    Summary: Good sound with great user experience for the remote and worth the $30 for those reasons. However, its a gamble with comfort; hoperfully you will have the right size ear where they don't get sore.

    Really good headphones

    • Written by from Pasadena

    Great improvement compare to the old Apple headphone. Fit is MUCH more comfortable, does not hurt my ear anymore. I have not wear it for a super long time yet, but so far so good. Sound is also much better. Pretty good bass, sound clarity is pretty good. Overall much better in every way than the old one.

    I still don't think it is as good as my Bose MIE2 headphone in sound quality. I think the Bose has a better, stronger bass. More detail in the sound and even better clarity and natural sound. But that is about a 120 bucks headphone, about 4x more in price. Overall this new earPods are very good! I have tried other in ear headphones in the 100 dollar range from Klipsch, Sennheiser, and Beats, and imo, these EarPods are better. Much better in comfort and better sounding. Most in-ear headphone, despite what reviews or others say, do not have good bass.

    With these earPods, I don't feel like I am wearing a headphone when I wear it and that is a good thing. Only other one I feel as comfortable is my Bose MIE2 headphones.

    Nice new shape but i think apple need to make an other size for this pods because I'm facing problems fitting them in my ears.
    They don't stay all the time on my ears which makes me not relaxed in them

    Good sound -- but EarPods fall out when walking

    • Written by from THORNHILL

    I was pleasantly surprised by the sound of the EarPods, which are a big improvement over earlier versions of Apple's earphones. Highs, mids and lows are clear, and offer a balanced listening experience. The mic and controls work well with my iPhone 4 and are easy to use.

    Unfortunately, good sound is only half of what I need in a pair of earphones. The other half is, of course, good fit -- and these absolutely don't for me. While I'm walking, the EarPods dislodge and simply fall out my ears. No matter how I try to angle them or position them deeper, they still work their way out fast, making these useless for me.

    Despite Apple's testing to try and make EarPods a universal fit for everyone, this is obviously impossible. Overall, a very disappointing purchase, which I'm going to return as soon as possible. Not recommended.

    Great sound quality, broke after 6 weeks!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I love these headphones, they're a great upgrade over the standard apple earbuds. Mine broke after 6 weeks. The remote started triggering play/pause by itself. Thankfully apple replaced them for me! I hope to enjoy this pair longer!

    Good price, comfortable

    • Written by from Ferndale

    I must have strange ears to fit. The round earbuds would NEVER stay in my ears, and hurt after less than an hour. I've tried them with various sized pads and cuffs. Meh! The in-ear earbuds cut out the outside sound, but then my own breathing is a distraction. And they fall out after a few minutes. I even have trouble getting those spongy earplugs for noise reduction to seat properly.

    These EarPods are comfortable to wear for hours. In fact, I haven't found them uncomfortable at all. They stay put in normal activity. I used them while picking blackberries for hours, but not while exercising. The sound is fine, but they're not headphones. I actually LIKE that I can hear what's going on around me.

    I now own three pairs of these.

    GREAT EarPods!!

    • Written by from Gilroy

    I know not every ear is equal, especially when you're 60 years old. But these EarPods are fantastic in my somewhat failing ears. The mid and high frequencies are crisp and clear, much better than my expensive Bose earphones. The only downside is the bass is not quite as good, but, only slightly. However, overall they're great!!! Highly recommend if your hearing is starting to wane like mine.

    Great Headphones

    • Written by from Mesa

    I am very happy with my Apple EarPods. They fit my ears perfectly, do not fall out and sound great. I have had many, many sets of head phones for my iPhone and these are my favorites. I can see where they would not fit everyone the same but, they fit me perfectly. Congratulations Apple on another great product.

    Maybe it's just me...

    • Written by from Waterford

    Maybe it's just me, but these things still do not stay in my ears. They stay in for about 30 seconds or so and then pop out as if they were skydiving and my ears are their airplane. While they're in, the sound is fantastic, but it's not very useful if they don't stay in. Perhaps I'm inserting them wrong, but if so, EarPods/EarBuds/Earphones should not require a user guide. The EarBuds did the same thing and these do have a higher quality sound so they are an improvement, but still don't work for me. I wish the outer layer were done in white PVC foam like Flents Quiet Time Soft Comfort Ear Plugs. They could use a foam that is less dense to prevent the total sound isolation, but still allow the EarPods to form a custom outer shape every time. That would be a winner.

    Noticeably better than the previous earphones.

    • Written by from Redondo Beach

    I like these. Much better bass response. Fit my ears perfectly. The clicker has a little more throw so it's easier to double and triple click. The cord is the same length as the previous model. Still not an audiophile experience, but a nice improvement over my previous Apple earphones. And I got them overnight. Bonus!

    What an improvement.

    • Written by from York

    I still can't get this style earphone to stay in my ear. I prefer Apple's dual armature in ear design. However, if you can get this style to stay put, you'll be very happy. The sound quality is much improved from the old style. I also have several high end head sets by Ultimate Ears and Shure. The sound quality from this head set is very competitive. If they would stay in my ear, I would certainly use them.
