    Terrible Design for comfort

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Are all the reviews that say these headphones fit well and are comfortable to wear written by Apple employees? Without any type of rubber gasket, these headphones do NOT stay in the ear even when you are stationary. The hard plastic casing hurts like heck just trying to set them inside the ear. They may look great, but whoever designed them did so without any consideration that not all ears and ear canals are the same size... Yet again Apple pushes form over function without proper user experience (UX) testing. I now have two unusable pair of earbuds, one that came with my 5s and one from my 6 Plus. Anybody want to buy a pair at a very cheap price (just pay for shipping)?

    Awesome Ear Pods

    • Written by from Santee

    Recently I began checking out new ear buds. After buying and returning several very expensive brands I found that the Apple Ear Pods were far superior to even the $100 plus ear phones. Nice job Apple.

    Good earbuds, junky build quality

    • Written by from Toronto

    These earbuds came with the phone I purchased in September 2014. The sound was an improvement over previous incarnations of earbuds however after dropping the phone with the 'buds plugged in, the connector broke free of the cable. For $35 Apple should put a bit more quality into their products.

    Worst earphones EVER!

    • Written by from Scarborough

    I bought these earphones because of all the positive reviews people have left for this product, but after testing them out for myself, I just realized that I made a big mistake! These earphones are TERRIBLE! They are so uncomfortable and awkward! The bass is very good, and the overall sound quality is amazing, but the actual earphones are not. I listened to one song on a decent volume level, and I immediately got a painful headache! Who came up with the design for these earphones? They are shaped so weirdly that they fit so awkwardly in my ears. The bass is so clear that it literally feels like the music is trapped in my ears and spilling into my brain! I couldn't even listen to a few songs because of the terrible headache I got after using these earphones. What a waste of money. What happened to the simple white earphones that came with the older iPod generations? Those were simple and shaped properly. They were round and simple, and the bass wasn't so strong that your ear drums felt like they were under attack. I fear that these earphones could actually cause damage to people's hearing. I warn you not to buy these, get something else!

    I actually like that sound and the microphone feature, but my ears have developed sores while trying to wear these. Are these made for men only? They are too large and hurt so bad.

    I prefer these over my Expensive ones

    • Written by from Clawson

    I own Bose Mie2i's and Ultimate Ears 600vi's. While I like those two a fair amount I actually prefer to use my Apple Earphones 90% of the time. I find them to be perfectly balanced, very clear and pleasant to listen to without getting fatigued. My Bose are nice but too bass heavy. The UE are very clear but zero lows and their flat EQ just feels so bland. Overall I find my Apple ones to be the best balance.
    I love the amount of artistic design put into these as well, they are gorgeous, came packaged in a very handsome case and they look and function very nicely. The reason I continue to stay with Apple (just got my 6 today) is because of polish and attention to detail such as these.

    Okay headphones

    • Written by from warner robins

    These headphones sound very good. The bass is pretty nice. The first few days of me using them they have made my ears hurt and sore. I hope they fix this in the next gen of headphones.

    The music plays great on it than just hearing it on the speakers of an technoligy. This also work eventhough you acciedently forgot to take it out from the pocket and went through heavy washing and drying. I recommend this as an cheaper and for protective and great sound earpods.

    The bass is too loud

    • Written by from Nairobi

    Due to the positive reviews I read, I recently bought a pair of Apple EarPods to use with my Macbook Pro. As I was expecting, they are very comfortable headphones to wear. However I was quickly disenchanted because of the deep bass, which cannot be reduced. This probably means that my EarPods will spend most of their life in my drawer.

    These earpods have great sound and are very durable. My mom put them through the washer and dryer and they still work! It seems the only way they break is if they are run over by a car,which has happened to me.

    Lasted me over a year Oct 2013 - Dec 11th, 2014

    • Written by from Columbus

    These EarPods are amazing, they lasted me 1 year and they were preowned, so I don't know how long they were purchased before I got them. Sound quality is amazing and they're durable. I've had my times of accidentally yanking the cord and out of my ears. Tip to make them last longer:
    When you go to store them until your next use you should do the following:
    1) Take both ends of the head phones and hold them together in one hand
    2) Grab the bottom of the loop, bring them up, and hold them
    3) Continue to fold to desired length making sure you're following the natural shape of the cords, don't force bending
    4) Store in desired area
    5) To prevent tangling you can use a twist tie or rubber band to secure them

    Not worth the money.

    • Written by from Livermore Falls

    I would love these earpods if they weren't so poorly made. The wire always falls apart and then I lose sound, I may as well buy the cheap $10 ones you can get at any store.

    Low to mid range headphone

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I've been using Apple earphones since iPhone 3GS and I have had a same experience with all of them. They start to be good when you have them out of box and use them for a few months. After that, they all start losing quality in noise and lower the sound they give out. Usually after 6months you find yourself buying a new one. The price for it is not cheap and it's overpriced for such quality, there are better earphones you can get with the same price range that work for you longer. I'm So disappointed by such wuality coming out of Apple production line especially after they aquired Beats. I was expectinn a better headphone quality for iPhone 6 series but it never happened.

    If you're planning to get one of these, just don't do it, it doesn't worth it unless you're one those who need to own everything Apple produces.

    They don't last

    • Written by from Montreal

    These EarPods sound great but they don't last. My 3rd pair in 18 months just died on me for absolutely zero reason. The remote stops working, the cord gets loose, an ear stops working. That just never ends. It just seems like a scam to get 40$ every 6 months. Really frustrating.

    Not Worth Buying

    • Written by from Roseville

    In 2013 I got the Iphone 5 and was in LOVE with the headphones. A little over a year later the left headphone blew out and I was devasted because the sound quality was amazing besides the fact that they didn't fit my ears. Then this summer I got the 5s and was very excited to finally get a new pair of headphones, it's been about six months now that I've had it and the left headphone has blown out again, the side speaker on it still works but the main speaker is gone. I'm very disapointed in Apple's quality of them. Won't be buying another pair; why have great sounding music if you can't even hear it?
