    The Sound is Great and well...

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I love the sound from the EarPods. These are the perfect earbuds for sitting around reading, watching Netflix, or listening to music at work. Unfortunately that's about all you can do with them. They are way too smooth and even the slightest things like smiling or laughing too hard makes them fall out. Running with them is impossible. Between the jostling and sweating I almost just wanted to leave them in a trash bin. I really miss the design of the old ear buds, I wish I was still able to purchase them.

    Absolutely Amazing

    • Written by from Rotonda West

    I am coming from Android and I just got an iPhone 6, I had a pair of V-Moda earbuds I got a few years ago and I paid around $100 for them. These EarPods are actually way more crisp and full than the V-Moda ones. I can't believe these came with the phone, but I guess that's Apple. Premium quality all the way, perfect highs and lows.

    Haters

    • Written by from Houston

    For all the people that say these headphones have a "bad design" it's probably because your ears aren't the right size. These will not fit everyone's ears. This doesn't mean they have a bad design. If they hurt after 15 minutes, stop using them and get other ones. If your ear canal is small, don't get these. They work fine for me, but maybe not everyone else.

    The design of these is not for everyone, but they are quite comfortable. They also sound great for their price.

    Worst product in apple line-up

    • Written by from Groves

    I simply cant fathom that Apple being such an awesome design firm sells these badly designed headphone. The design is terrible. How do they expect these to stay in anyone ears is beyond me. The shape is weird, and the surface is so smooth that there is almost no friction to keep them in your ear. They keep sliding off every minute. The cord is also terribly designed. First, it is really short, so if you don't have a front shirt pocket, you have to hold it. No option of putting it in your jeans pocket because it wont reach. Second the mic is located specifically such that it makes it difficult for the person on the other end to hear anything. Most times I have to put the mic almost in my mouth for the other person to hear what I am saying clearly. Lastly, the mic keeps getting stuck in my shirt collar keeps pulling the ear piece out of my ear. APPLE what happened to ease of use?
    Please make something that is wireless & stays in your ear.

    No idea why

    • Written by from Silver spring

    My first pair lasted about two months, before both stopped working. I even cleaned the grill, but it didn't work so I replaced them. Two pairs later, the left earpod stops working when it was working perfectly fine that day and I have no idea why because I cleaned it for about two hours. I watched videos on how to make it work again, I read comments on how to fix them. But no matter what I did, it wouldn't work.

    Sounds good, hurts bad!

    • Written by from Bangalore

    These are excellent headphones your money can buy, in fact they are way better than my Panasonic (extra bass variant) and Skullcandy (Ink'd) headphones in terms of quality of audio ouput. There is one major drawback in these Apple headphones - I am not sure if its only me or not, but these phones hurt my ears like crazy! I can hardly wear them for more than 15 minutes after which I literally crib in pain and take them off.

    Bad design

    • Written by from Raleigh

    I've been disappointed with the quality of the earbuds that Apple has given with the iPhone since the beginning. They are extremely uncomfortable, won't stay in my ears, especially when moving around, and the sound quality is barely passable. Basically, they're junk. Not a very good pairing with an otherwise glorious piece of hardware technology. The buds that came with my 6+ were no exception. Surely Apple can do better than this? And don't get me started on the problems with frayed chords at the base of each end -- both the earbuds AND the power chords. It's laughably embarrassing for the company's image. Not to mention, just plain shoddy workmanship and design.

    uncomfortable headset ever seen

    • Written by from Pathankot

    The sound is great, but after about 15m the unforgiving hard plastic form begins to hurt. If you find yourself swapping out the default silicone earphone tips for the small size on other in-ear headphones, these EarPods might be too big for you.

    Uncomfortable for small ear canals

    • Written by from Pleasant Grove

    Nobody in my family can get these to fit well—we must all have small ear canals. The sound is great, but after about 15m the unforgiving hard plastic form begins to hurt. If you find yourself swapping out the default silicone earphone tips for the small size on other in-ear headphones, these EarPods might be too big for you.

    I don't get it.

    • Written by from Baltimore

    The sound on Apples earpods are bar none the best sound quality, for the price, I've ever experienced. HOWEVER, who's ears do these earphones fit in?! They are the least comfortable, least ergonomic earphones on the market! C'mon Apple! Get it together, I would loove for my earphones to actually stay inside my ear.

    These are fantastic speakers, especially given the price.

    • Written by from Melbourne

    Their shape provides surprising bass response. Spoiler alert, I guess I just ruined the surprise.

    Additionally the controls are integrated into iOS so I pause podcasts, use siri, adjust volumes, text folks easy peasy.

    After buying one, I've now bought 4 for myself and all my devices, and as backups when I lose them for short periods of time.

    Reliability is a non issue, they work great, I've not had one misfunction.

    Decent sound and fit, but they stop working after 6 months

    • Written by from Tallahassee

    Good: they sound great, they're comfortable, and they're a decent price.

    Bad: they stop working after about 6-8 months. The sound will either stop entirely, cut out in one speaker, or reduce in quality. It seems to be related to wear in the areas where plastic is joined with cord. The cord is just not sturdy enough for everyday use.

    I have bought at least 2 every year since they came out. If I go to an Apple store, they will often replace them under AppleCare (if they have an appointment at the Genius Bar available). But I do not live near an Apple Store, and they do not return products from the online store after 6 months, so I have to pay $30 every few months. If there were a way to pay $100 for earbuds that can actually last a couple years, then I'd do it. Sadly, that'd actually SAVE me money!

    Good

    • Written by from Triton

    Seems to be the only good thing apple makes lately. These ear pods have great sound quality and works great with my galaxy s5. Only problem is that they seem to become quiet over a few months of use, I have tried cleaning them out and they are still quiet. Overall they are fairly good for $30 earphones even though they seem to have a short life span.

    Lovable...

    • Written by from Largo

    Well, I loved them when they came with my IPod Touch. The sound was great, and the shape and size fit my ears perfectly! I loved them, until the truth hit me. The plastic covering was coming off, and the jack its self, Was bending and breaking. I had them for almost a whole year! I got aggravated when the jack had bent so much that it was causing only one earphone to work. I had to bend it back into place every 5 second. Worth buying, just try to preserve them longer than I did.

    Bad at first but actually amazing

    • Written by from leesburg

    So at first when I got these I never used them and I used beats but the problem was that they were to big and I didn't have the earbuds I had the headphones. So then I started using monster earbuds and I lost those :( so I was basically forced to use the apple ones. On the first day I didn't like them because they weren't as good at staying in your ear as the monsters but then I realized hat the sound quality is amazing better then Bose to! And the beats! And I also realized if you pull down on the Apple EarPods they don't fall off its just if you pull up or to the side.but the sound quality is amazing and it fits very comfortably in your ear more comfortable then the beats to! It's wayyyyyyyy underpriced and they are really worth hundreds i suggest getting one asap
