    Poor Design

    • Written by from Spruce Grove

    Well Mr. Ives....the perfect design for the perfect ear. Not quite Jony. Unfortunately not everyone's ear is the same, so unless you have that perfect ear expect these ear buds to fall out quite easily, fit uncomfortably and lose sound quality depending on how they fit. If you manage to stuff them in your imperfect ear the sound is often muffled and it becomes a chore to move them around to sit perfectly....there's that word again Mr. Ives.

    Horrible reliablity, Waste of money!

    • Written by from Burnaby

    These seem great at first but just wait they'll fail you fairly quickly. Be super careful with the remote part.....it'll start to act up on you..once that happens its only a matter of days until the problem really sets in. For how much the earpods cost compared to the quality..yeah no thanks I'll save my money and purchase far more reliable and far better made earphones (earpods) then these. Seriously Apple you really have a thing for using the worst material to make these weak little cords and then selling them way overpriced. We aren't all made of money, some of us are broke as H E double hockey sticks.

    ok+ sound quality. And for me it's also terrible for running

    • Written by from Boynton Beach

    It keeps falling off, specially if you sweat a lot like I do. You will have to find a way to customize It to your needs. If you're a runner and you sweat even for a bit then forget about this EarPods. Even if you don't sweat but have long step running, it will always drop on the side where the mic is. It's very enfuriating. Really, fix it. 3 stars for the sound quality that is meh, Bose earpod have better sound although is way more expensive, but it STICKS TO YOUR EARS. Come on guys..

    Horrible Quality, Poor reliability

    • Written by from Redmond

    These headphones seem nice when you first buy them, but they are a complete waste of money. They barely last a month before one side stops working. I foolishly bought a second pair only to have the right side die again. They are horribly uncomfortable and don't last. WASTE OF MONEY!

    If I could I wouldn't even give it one star!!!

    • Written by from Denver

    These earphones are really really really bad!! Apple HAS to do something to fix their quality! It's actually quite impressive a company known for its high quality to deliver such poor quality product like these earphones! I have had three so far and NONE of them lasted more than a year. First it starts with the remote, it starts to act funny, making the volume to go up and down without even pressing it and then eventually they will stop working.
    You would think for such expensive price they would last for quite a long time, but no, they don't AT ALL!! It's so disappointing, frustrating and annoying!
    Well, I guess I'm not the only one complaining about it, there are so many bad reviews here and still Apple is doing nothing. Great job, guy!

    Makes Clicking Noise

    • Written by from Windom

    I purchased the EarPods with great confidence and have been sorely disappointed. The left EarPod makes a clicking noise as if it's trying to connect something internally (in the wires maybe?). It only clicks when I walk, but considering I use the headphones on my walk to the train, while I'm working out, etc., it is VERY annoying. The clicking is loud enough to overpower the entire music/podcast I have playing. I am an Apple person, but my confidence has been lost in this product.

    Not great for smaller ears

    • Written by from Bismarck

    While the sound quality is fine, these don't actually fit in my ears. I can get them to stay if I'm not moving, but any kind of activity is out of the question. Moreover, my ears start to hurt after about 10 minutes of wearing them, I think due to them not sitting as they should. Although the aesthetics are nice, visually speaking, they are of little use to me. It would be nice if future models took size variation into consideration. People with small ears should probably look for in-ear buds with the switchable tips.

    They are the best!!! I had no problems with them and I find them good! Once you use them for a while, they become inferior, but otherwise the sound is crisp. I love them!

    new pair makes Siri constantly turn on

    • Written by from Nashville

    My previous pair of apple ear phone eventually broke, but it was my fault for running in the rain. My new pair makes Siri turn on every 5 seconds. I can't stand it. I even turned off Siri and then voice control comes on. My old ones don't do this but only one ear bud is still functional. So frustrating.

    Won't stay in my ears.

    • Written by from Portland

    5 stars for the sound, 1 star for constantly falling out of my ears.

    The sound is great, and the quality seems good. If these stay in your ears, they're a pretty good deal. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

    They don't last long :(

    • Written by from South Yarra

    After a few months the weight of the microphone or any movement of the cable causes the right earbud to crackle or cut-out completely for a split second.
    I have already had my initial set with my iPhone 6 replaced, ill be taking these back to a store to see if I can get these replaced too.

    Size comfortable and sound quality is very good.

    2nd one that broke off in my computer!!!

    • Written by from amherst

    These are really junky yet expensive. This is the second one that has BROKEN OFF in my computer necessitating the tricky super-glue-on-the-end-of-a-shorn-qtip maneuver.

    And so expensive!!! For such crumby quality!

    I think I will not get a third pair, just not worth it.

    Seemed unlikely, but I love them

    • Written by from Suffolk

    If these are the same model that came with 6s, I love them. I don't like earbuds (and until now, never have)! When I saw the ones that came with the iPhone 6s I thought, "I'll stick with what I got." About 2 days later what I had went AWOL. I took them with me for lack of options. As uncomfortable as they might appear, they are probably the best earbuds I have ever had. I have read some of the other reviews. For a some they don't fit their ears. I also saw a couple saying something about the durability. I can't speak to the durability. I keep them in the case that was provided with them, and I guess I just have the golden ratio for the size of ear canal. I can't judge everyone because our activities and basic body dimension vary greatly. I will venture this much! If your a male of medium build around 5'9" this might be a relatively inexpensive antidote to your in-private listening needs.

    Not like they used to be

    • Written by from Toronto

    For years, Apple headphones were made with a very rubbery material that was more flexible than most. However, the last pair I picked up feels extremely cheap. The plastic cable is extremely stiff, which makes it very difficult to coil them neatly before stuffing in your pocket. I don't want to spend 10 minutes untangling headphones each time I pull them from my pocket, so I'm very disappointed in the design change. I'm also very disappointed to find that Apple has made a design change without letting consumers know. Clearly, it's not an improvement or they would have trumpeted it.

    I won't be buying Apple headphones any more.
