    The worst ever

    These are the worst headphones I've ever come across. The sound is too quiet and the buds hurt my ears. I miss the old ones :(
    I think we should get better headphones with phone this expensive.

    Wow.. Amazing sound for earbuds

    I own a pair of Sennheiser 380s, which are studio-quality over the ear headphones, and honestly these come pretty flipping close to sounding as good as those. The clarity is unmistakenable in these little buds, although the sennheiser has bigger range and more bass better mids, but obviously that is to be expected. But WOW WOW WOW. for 30 bucks or, basically free with an iPad or iPhone, these are really really hard to beat.
    The fit is just like any other earbud really. They are annoying for the first 10 minutes then your body gets "used" to it and stops feeling them. I have big ears though so, maybe others would notice bigger issues.

    Absolute trash

    These headphones are awful. I wouldn't pay $5 for them, much less $30. Every single pair of headphones I've bought for around a half or a third of the price has been ten times better than these. While they don't fall out of my ears, they are extremely uncomfortable and require readjusting every couple of minutes. Also, the sound quality is very poor and quiet. If you want to listen at a volume where you can really hear the music, then everyone else will hear it too. The sound leakage is awful. Whenever I hear someone's music in public, I look over and they have a pair of these in their ears. Do not buy.

    This is an all around badass pair of earpods. But I guess my ears are deformed or just my inner ears are too small. Haven't seen any comment review bout this yet of them. They are constantly always falling outta my head. Bring them available in smaller size. I'll give 5 stars.

    So uncomfortable

    Sound quality is ok but these are by far the most uncomfortable headphones ive ever used... Within 3 mins of wearing you will feel pain. Not to mention they fall out of my ears every 5 mins

    They sound great but feel terrible!

    I bought these because I needed headphones that worked with my Macbook Pro. Some headphones with mics don't work correctly with Apple products, so I figured I'd get these. I purchased the earpods, had them in for one 30 minute Skype meeting, and by the time the meeting was over, my ear was throbbing from pain. I only noticed some discomfort at first, but now I'm two days later and my ear still hurts.

    The plastic construction is too big for where they need to go in my ear. I'm not a small guy nor do I have small ears, but if the housing were rubber instead of hard plastic, perhaps they wouldn't hurt so much.

    iPhone 6s ear buds

    Who on earth designed these! They fall straight out of your ear. I've resorted back to my trusty iPhone 4 earphones.

    Cheaply made and doesn't last very long

    These headphones are garbage. I've probably used these headphones 20 times before they started breaking apart. (And I take good care of my stuff). The headphones look and sound nice, but once you start using them more - God forbid you store them in a safe compartment in a bag - they fall to peices. My right ear bud stopped working, then soon after so did the left one. The peices that they're attached to spin around and break off. CHEAP GARBAGE! If you're going to charge people $29.00 for cheap headphones then you are insane!

    These headphone keep popping out of my ear. They stink!

    Ok sound. but they are worthless because they won't stay in your ear even if you are sitting perfectly still. I'm surprised that Apple designed such a lousy product!

    I'm glad these were included with my iPhone 6S Plus, because I would not have bought them otherwise. They are uncomfortable and fall out of the ear. I didn't bother testing their sound quality, because of the poor fit. The iPhone sounds great with regular (over the ear) headphones.

    Excellent audio quality, my daily drivers.

    As earphones included with the iPhones, they are the best inclusion item ever. As standalone earphones, they are the best for the money. The type of music I listen to is UK Hardcore (rave music) on my HTC One M8 (with BoomSound DISABLED). If you listen to hip hop or rap music, stick with your Beats. You don't have to steal my earpods because they aren't going to make much of a difference, due to how hip hop and rap music is mixed. (808 snares, 808 hi hats and some lyrics, that's pretty much it.) I've had two pairs of earpods that were destroyed, once because my phone fell and broke the 3.5mm male end off, the second because someone tried stealing them from me but ended up breaking them. I will get a third pair soon, and I will be able to enjoy music in public once again without being blatant with expensive ATH-M50X headphones, because we all have standards. Except those who listen to hip hop or rap music.

    poor workmanship

    I have the iPhone 6 and I have had the earphones sense that phone came out. One earbud does not work anymore so I'm left spending $30 on another pair because non-Apple EarPods are not compatible with the phone

    Good sound quality, but terrible component quality

    Have had a couple pairs of these, over the recent years. They sound great at first, but the sound quality starts to degrade after about half a year's normal use, which typically shows itself in one of the earbuds' volume level/general sound changing, leaving you with an out of balance experience between the left and right side of the audio signal (e.g. higher volume in one side).

    Very dodgy build-quality here and I think my current pair will be my last pair of Apple headphones.

    PS: I am an audio engineer and thus know what I'm talking about.

    If I could give these earphones a lower rating I would. I've been through three pairs, all of which have become defective where the wire meets the connector. Perhaps this is a clever marketing ploy on Apple's part, make terrible quality earphones so that the gullible customer consumes more.

    Sound much better than LG wireless $69 headphones.

    Worse earbuds EVER

    I can't wear these things unless I'm still. If I workout or do anything where I'm active they won't stay in!

    Terrible design!

    Poor Design

    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!

    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.
