    Not Bad

    I have very small ears so I was surprised when these fit my ears because no earbuds really ever fit. All around sound is like a 6.5-7. Nothing to be shocked about. But probably one of the best Earbuds that you get with a phone.

    Great EarPods!

    These EarPods are thin and light. You can hear well. In the other hand, they get dirty easily but, another beneficial factor is that you can also use them as an eraser for your pencils. Thanks Apple!

    Sound quality varies depending on your unit. Very clean.

    I use my ATH m50s as a reference to compare it to the earpods. The earpods sound very balanced with a slight tint on the treble and a slight boost in the mid range. It does sound a little bit grainy sometimes and lacks detail when in direct comparison. You have to keep in mind that the M50s can range from 90-150$ depending on the seller. The earpods have a balanced bass extension and a good overall body with a hint of "Liveliness".It sounds really spectacular on the new iPhone SE (I suspect this is an improved version of the Iphone 5s's sound chip as it sounds very similar) that it shipped with. I have an old Iphone 4S lying around and it sounded thin in comparison. This may be a problem if you have an older phone and want to experience the same audio quality.

    I do not consider myself a professional of such but I am somewhat of an audio "Freak". I have multiple good amplifiers and DACS lying around so I thought It would be a good idea to compare them to the output on the iphones just for fun. I have realized that apple's products actually do have exceptional sound chips inside their products. I can't really say I heard much of a difference between the dac in my iphone and the more expensive DACS except for an improvement in sound-staging and dynamics when directly compared. You can find measurements of the DACS inside the iphones and they are surprisingly good (On paper). It's a disappointment to know that they are considering taking away the 3.5mm jack on the upcoming phones.

    Best Earphones Ever, but...

    These EarPods are the best-sounding earphones on the market. I'd recommend them to anyone. For $30, you get something that sounds incredibly good. However, the only problem I have with them, is that after a few months, they end up breaking. It doesn't break right away, but gradually, the left or right side side earbud will go out. Other than that, I always buy another pair.

    what a great pair...maybe

    The EarPods stay in, they have great sounds. They were recommended by one of the Apple employees at the Brea, CA store. I've been trying to find buds, headphones, etc. to wear around the house, jogging, exercising in general and these fit the bill.

    I am only giving 4 stars out of reservations. I have read some reviews in which these EarPods do not last. I've had them for about three weeks and they work fine for me.

    The bass is great!

    These EarPods are a giant leap forward from the previous ones. They have amazing bass, however they have a little trouble with higher tones. They are very comfortable and never fall out of my ears. I have also know these EarPods to shock my ears when I slide across my couch. So maybe add some rubber tips if you design a new pair so my ears don't get shocked.

    Weak cord

    I listen to music with the EarPods daily. My problem is, with all this use the wire gets very worn much too fast. It's the same problem with the charger cords. They fray where they bend. The quality of sound and how they fit are great but buying a new pair of EarPods every six months doesn't satisfy.

    nice but don't last for long

    They are nice but they do not last for long. Still the best earbuds in the business compared to other back earbuds like wicked audio(ps. do not buy wicked audio earbuds)

    Cool thing

    good sound quality about the Earpods, but the rubber wire that connecting the port part seem like not really durable.

    Good headphones

    This is the best earbuds I ever had rich sound and things like that it's very very good although there is a reminder to people with these headphones make sure you clean out the ear wax dirt sand or dust from the headphones because if all that clogs up the part where the sound comes out it would block the sound from the headphones

    Good headphones

    Very good headphones they are comfortable and good sound quality for earphones but like all headphones are very prone to breaking sometimes for no reason they just wear out so its frusturating but they are good headphones either way

    Pretty good

    Great sound, and average durability. They are a bit uncomfortable though, and they tend to fall out easily. But overall, these earbuds are pretty good.

    Great product, but a bit overpriced

    The earpods have a good sound quality, but the sound leaks out and I'm still able to hear my surroundings. Not sure if it has noise cancellation, maybe that's why I still hear my surroundings. The bass in the earpods is impressive and heavy. They are uncomfortable at the beginning, but once you start to wear them on a daily you get used to the shape. At first it would hurt the inside of your ears and kinda scrape it too. Once you get used to them it feels comfortable and nice. The earpods do have a tendency to slide off my ear too. The one thing that is a bit dumb and gets a star deducted is the PRICE.... But its Apple, all they want is your money *cough* Tim Cook. Anyway, maybe $10 less will be acceptable and reasonable.

    Comes with my iPhone 6s a very decent pair of earphone

    I think it is better than the ones from Beats. It fits perfectly in my ear, and the sound quality is terrific. But according to my past experience, the sound quality quickly wears off as you continue to use.

    It's really good, got with my iphone 6+,128gb

    It's really good but bass effect is very less compared to normal headphone. while listening music when I push apple head phone in my ear I got good bass effect and in normal head phone no pushing is required.

    Lovely

    These are the best earbuds that I have ever used. The sound is clear and precise, and the ergonomic fit makes them much more comfortable in my ears than other earbuds are. The microphone on the remote outputs fair-quality sound; it is good enough to use for recording narrations as well as for foreign language programs like Rosetta Stone.

    While the wires have become slightly discolored over time (about a year) and the soft dark grey bits are a bit broken apart at the edges, I have not had any sound quality issues.

    The remote is very useful. Quick volume control and song-skipping is lovely.

    Pros:
    Fair price for the quality and (somewhat) longevity (if taken care of)
    Great and balanced audio quality
    Quick and smooth remote functions
    Compatible with many devices
    Visually appealing
    Comfortable ergonomic fit

    Cons:
    Very fragile and subject to wear and tear
    Only one color option
    No wireless option (tangles galore unless you take the time to wrap them in their holder)

    Great product

    I love these! In my opinion, they sound just as good as Beats headphones, without the noise cancellation. I like the conveinient remote, except sometimes it's confusing to know how to do some things, like activate Siri, or skip a song. However, that is all explained in the manual which is very easy to read and clear. The only thing I don't like is that dirt and debris very easily gets stuck beneath the metal mesh, and is very hard to clean out.
