    Didn't last long

    • Written by from Kamrar

    I had these headphones for about a year. Used them almost daily, mainly with my phone and computer. After about 4 months they started to get staticky and shocked me on multiple occasions. I kept using them because they were so expensive, and eventually the stopped. Recently the left right headphone has died completely. Considering that I bought these when the price was closer to $40, I really don't appreciate them dieing after such a short time.

    I really like the built in remote, especially using my phone so I don't have to dig it out to change something, but they broke so fast that they weren't worth the price

    Apple earpods

    • Written by from cedar springs

    As a long time music consumer,who has spent more than he should on speakers headphones and most recently earbuds...I am so happy with the sound quality of my Apple EarPods! The sound equals or exceeds most products at five times the price. As for the dubious remarks on longevity and comfort....bull I've drifted off to sleep many pleasant evenings and awoke with EarPods still in place. 8 months of everyday use at least 4 hours a day. If they die I won't hesitate to buy another pair. Thanks apple!

    Very uncomfortable to wear

    • Written by from Raleigh

    The sound quality is good however it is super uncomforable to wear, after a few minutes your ear lobe starts to hurt. Apple please redesign the shape of the plugs or use a softer material

    If you love your ears, DON'T BUY THESE!!

    • Written by from Sainte-Catherine

    These are the worst things that I have ever had the misfortune to put in my ears. The crazy design makes it impossible to hear anything unless you are willing jam them down into your ear canals and run the risk of losing your hearing permanently.

    The person who designed these things may have ears the size of Saint-Bernard's, but the rest of us don't. I have to pull mine out after less than 30 minutes of use. And don't even get me started on how the speakers are placed in the pod ...

    I could have purchased something less expensive (paid $40) that not only provided great sound, but was also pain-free. Oh yeah ... let's not forget the carrying case, which is one of the reasons I purchased these particular earpods. Once you get the pods out, you can't keep them connected AND store them in the case; it's either one or the other - USELESS!

    I gave this a rating of one star, but it doesn't even deserve that!

    great sound but bad connector

    • Written by from Charlotte

    The new design earbuds sound really good but now the third pair that I have purchased have the same connector problems. When plugged in they make popping and clicking sounds. I would just twist them until they sound normal. But now two out of three pairs do not work at all.

    Don't let you even think of other earplugs!

    • Written by from Rohini

    Undoubtably!
    It is impossible to find any such headphones, especially at this price.
    These earphones have the best sound quality, I have ever heard. This piece of unbelievable tech, enables you to focus high quality sound, right towards your eardrums, enabling you to hear the quality of sound, that makes having evolve ears, worthy. Can correctly be termed SASEW(Sound Amplification By Stimulated Emission Of Waves) after revolutionary LASERS.

    Better than I thought they would be

    • Written by from Spring

    I got these with my iPhone 6. They are pretty comfortable for the first 30mins of wearing and then start to hurt the inside of my ears. I am usually using my Skull Candy 50/50 that have a deeper bass than these but are also $25 higher in price. For the money (if i would have paid for these separately) I would feel they are worth the $30. I think anyone that buys these will be surprised by how good they sound.

    Horrible

    • Written by from Pottstown

    I think most of these positive reviews are written by apple themselves. these headphones are amazing for the first month then after that they break. the cord is not durable and the headphones lose their sound. Especially, paying $29 for these is not reasonable at all. I wish apple would have let me know how quick their things break

    Terrible EarPods!

    • Written by from Gainesville

    I received the EarPods with my iPhone 5S. I opened the package today to use them for the first time. I plugged them into my iPhone and the left side doesn't work at all, as in, there is zero sound. The right side works nice, but why would I only want to listen to music in one ear? I've had the iPhone 5S for less than a month and I also own a Macbook Pro, iPad mini, and Apple TV. I have also owned an iPhone 4S and iPod Touch. This is the first time I've had an issue with an Accessory and seriously? It doesn't work right out of the box? Apple, you can do better than that!

    New earpods - poor design

    • Written by from Baltimore

    Not sure what the rave is about these new earpods. They are the most uncomfortable and painful earpods I've ever worn. I couldn't enjoy the better sound long enough before yanking them out of my ears. The hard shell does not conform to the opening of the auditory canal.

    Great while they work

    • Written by from Lakewood

    I bought these about 6 months ago. I don't do any heavy listening; nothing loud, and only during my 9-5 shift. Up until last week, they were great. The style and shape took a little getting used to, but the sound was amazing. Now, the left earbud has decided to stop working, not completely but the sound quality is so miniscule I can hardly hear it. I feel like I've wasted $30. I've had $10 headphones last years, but for something so (relatively) expensive to not last even a year is pretty shoddy. I can't say I'm happy with the purchase.

    Amazing , simply amazing -

    • Written by from Valsayn WI

    So I'm a headphone junkie, music is most of my life.

    I've owned a lot of headphones, klipsch s4 gen ii, bose oe2(most comfortable headphones ever, like soft plus pillows of heaven) bose AE1 & 2. Sony v6 studio monitors. Klipsch image one . Sennheiser hd238.
    Audio technica m50s(by far the best I've heard to date) etc. (Music/ instrument junkie) .

    I play all my instruments by ear, so. I would like to think I have a decent pair of ears.
    My dad owns a lot of bose stuff, including the ie2 headphones.
    For 30 dollars these easily sound better than the ie2 from Bose..

    My only gripe with them is if u have weird shaped ears like myself they can sometimes dislodge from the ears after using them for a while.

    The solution is to purchase earhoox,,, again that's earhoox, changed my life.
    Now they fit just like the bose and the sound is better.
    Sound wise these headphones are very well balanced and for 30$ that's amazing.

    The ath m50 from audio tecnica and bose oe2 are my primary headphones, but for portability u cant beat these.
    Don't hesitate to get em.. And look up earhoox... Makes the fit a lot more secure.

    Cheers!

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    i love these headphones a lot and use them daily, very comfortable. The only problem i've had with these is how the main speaker on the left earbud blows out. My third pair has already blown out on the left one and about to go to my 4th pair that came with my iPhone 6. That should probably get looked into.
