    Unacceptable

    • Written by from marina

    I love apple products but sadly they've been failing me repeatedly.
    I bought a pair of headphones to replace my lost ones and only after 3 weeks they broke. I was listening to music on my I-phone as I was walking home when my phone fell and the headphones literally split apart. The portion that goes into your I-phone was actually stuck in my phone while the cord to the headphones had separated. I've dropped my phone a couple of times while listening to music and and never has the actual cord broke, usually the headphones just pull out of the phone, but I was very upset about they just broke this time. I understand when over time headphones start to fade or lose sound on one side due to old or tangled wires, but this is ridiculous. I did not pay 30+ tax to have my headphones break so easily.
    Apple is failing.

    GREAT SOUND... when they work

    • Written by from Memphis

    I love the Ear Pods shape and they are very comfortable but the big problem is that one of Ear Pods goes out meaning you are getting full volume on one side but on the other you could barley hear the music. So please find a way to prevent this from happening.

    Apple EarPods.

    • Written by from WINTER HAVEN

    I have Bose QC 15 and B&W P-5 $300.00 headphones. I bought the iPhone 6+ these new EarPods that came with the 6+ have a very impressive sound quality. Great comfort and fit for hrs. of use. Buy a new iPhone get a free pair..LOL. These EarPods "Stay" in my ears even while moving about.

    The Genius of Jony Ive's design skills in making these EarPods is truly Genius.
    My thanks go out to Jony for a great design, quality of sound and comfort.

    HATE is a strong word but...I HATE the EarPods

    • Written by from Woodstock

    I agree with everyone that the sound is great - but there are many other brands with great sound. I cannot believe that with such great technology, Apple can't make a better EarPod. The earbuds I got from CVS even come with 3 different size rubber pieces so that you can choose which ones fit your ears best. Not everyone has the same size and shape ears. Wearing the Apple EarPods pose two problems - and both outweigh the great sound: 1) They don't fit in my ear very well so as soon as I move, they fall out; and 2) they HURT!

    Maybe the bad design is a ploy to get folks to buy Beats... Not me. No thanks.

    Great Sound, BUT....Ouch!!

    • Written by from Janesville

    I would really like these earbuds IF I could wear them for more than 10 minutes. They are hard and oddly shaped. The result is just very uncomfortable at best, bordering on painful. I will just stick with the traditional round ones from JBL. They sound great too, but much more comfortable for me. Sorry Apple I would not recommend these to anyone! Luckily they came with my new iPhone so I didn't lay any extra cash out for them.

    Terrible earpods

    • Written by from Swarthmore,

    These earpods are terrible . I can't get them to stay in the ear when walking. It is so annoying. I thought the older ones were bad but these are worse. I would love to know how they tested them. Trying to buy over the ear headphones but do not want to pay hundreds of dollars for the large ones.

    More Colors!!!

    • Written by from Taunton

    I love these headphones more than anything. They are comfortable and have a perfect sound, as well as a perfect price. Also they last a pretty long time. The only downside is that with everyday use they no longer look white. I wish Apple would make these headphones in other colors like black or grey

    it simply hurts

    • Written by from new york

    I did not like them at all , i bought iPhone 6 and loved every thing in the box except the earpods , i mean they really hurts after wearing them for a long time , for a customer the most important thing is comfort and quality , this has quality but they don't have the comfortability that i need.

    Very painful :(

    • Written by from Wayland

    They have great sound, but they hurt my ears! After reading other reviews I don't feel so bad. I thought it was just me. But really, the shape is so awkward, the cartilage in my ears hurt so bad I can't wear them more than a minute. Not enjoyable at all.

    Good Quality

    • Written by

    I've had my earphones for a little over a year now. I use them daily. The right one finally gave out and no longer works (excepting the volume control/speaker, which works perfectly despite no sound coming through the earphone). Having used them as frequently as I did (walking to class, exercising, studying, homework time, etc.), I'm happy with how long they lasted and will be buying another pair. The sound quality is also excellent considering the low cost.

    Also: I've NEVER had earphones fit my ears the way these do. They are comfortable and secure. I run and bike and never once had them fall out (excepting my hand smacking into it). I've tried in-hear headphones with the adjustable ear piece and they always fell out regardless of the size or shape.

    Bottom Line: These (for me) were comfortable, stable, and inexpensive for the quality.

    LOVE Apple, but HATE these EarPods!

    • Written by from Isle of Palms

    All of my iPhones have been amazing, but these EarPods are the worst. They are actually painful to wear. The mic is great, but they do not fit well in my ears. Apple, PLEASE change the design to something soft and flexible. The skull candy earbuds that I have with varying sizes of rubber on them are immeasurably better than the huge hard plastic on those that come with Apple products.

    Bluetooth

    • Written by from MILNER

    I would like to see these earbuds on a Bluetooth model around the neck . They fit my ears perfect but the cord to my iPhone gets in the way of my work . I have been thru 6 pair due to hanging on an object and getting cut or damaged in some other way .

    • Written by from Pitman

    im sure theyre great but if they dont stay in my ears theyre pretty much useless. why cant they just put a normal pair of headphones in there, or knock the money off the price. :P

    One of the best parts of buying an iPhone

    • Written by from Loganville

    No one seems to talk about it, but these headphones are the best part of my new iPhone purchase. They fit comfortably in my ear, and that never happens with headphones. When I have these in, I can't hear anyone or anything, which I love. Although, it does cause some problems when my co-workers try to get my attention when I have these in. The sound quality is amazing, and sounds just as good as a nice stereo system.

    The first time Apple managed to get headphones right, and these are a jump straight from mediocre to fantastic. Must get.

    I loved the old apple earpods, but this new model hurts my ears. They are very uncomfortable and fall out. What happened to a once great product ?

    Wow! What an improvement over the previous version!

    • Written by from New London

    I just bought an iPhone 6 (which includes these), and am coming from an iPhone 4s. I use my headphones every day and these are superior to the last version! There is no more rubber band around the edge (which peeled off), they are much easier to clean (no more mesh) and fit well. The bass response in these is fantastic for such small, "basic" headphones! The remote also seems to be more responsive and easier to click/engage. Nicely done, Apple!

    Sounds great for the first 5-6 weeks

    • Written by from Delray Beach

    I bought my headphones about 6 weeks ago and the right earphone is already half as loud as it was before. I see why they are only 30.00. I do not recommend these headphones to any of you.
