    Great sound if you can bear the pain.

    These earbuds came with my iPhone 7 plus. They have an incredibly rich sound. Very good bass, especially. However, after five minutes I feel like my ears are burning. SUCH an ill-fitting pair of earbuds! Surely I'm wearing them wrong or something. I've tried every positioning trick imaginable to no avail. After a few weeks of trying, I've come to the conclusion that I'm stuck with a pair of the BEST earbuds for sound but the worst for fit. Just impossible to use. Why????

    Nice sound quality and volume control-too bad they don't fit my ears!

    I got a pair of Apple earbuds with my iPhone 6s. I'm not sure if they are like these or like the other ones on this site. So I am wiring basically the same review for both of them. They do not fit my ears. I tried them out for the first time and cannot keep them in my ears. I do not do extreme activities - just walk my dog and like to listen to music as I walk. These kept falling out of my ears and I kept trying to push them in-one ear is almost raw from the hard plastic rubbing against the inside of my ear. I can't believe Apple would design something so poorly. I am going to take them back to the Apple store and see if they can give me something else or if these come in a smaller size. If not, fortunately, my 3 cheap pairs of earbuds (all of which fit my ears very well, thank you) seem to work with the pPhone I have-the plug in fits the iPhone jack. Thank God!

    A more intelligent design would be welcome.

    I've been using in-ear-canal Etymotic Research for a number of years, first the 6i and now the hf5. Wonderful sound and they stay in your ear (although they may become uncomfortable after a while). I got the Apple ear pods a week ago when I bought an iPod Touch 6th gen. After I figured out how they go in the ear I was impressed with the sound. It's bigger than the Etymotic but it has a pleasing clarity to it - I listen to a lot of Bach for piano.

    What I don't understand is how Apple can make these devices without ensuring that they will remain where they're placed. If I'm perfectly still - and ignore what the music does to me - they're likely to stay in my ear, although even that's not guaranteed for long. If I move, they're out. A more intelligent design would be welcome. I can't imaging paying for the new bluetooth ear pods if they're anything like these.

    Uncomfortable and Slippery

    These are the most uncomfortable ear buds I've put in my ears, ever! They were actually kind of painful like something was poking the inside of my ear. They also don't stay in my ears very well when working out. As soon as I start to sweat, out they come. Seriously, I like the older style ear pods with the foam covers. Those stayed in my ears. Since then, I've purchased other brands with silicone inserts. The softer silicone is much more comfortable and they stay in.

    Good sound, terrible design and poor fit.

    Ok I reviewed the wrong ear phones. These are standard ones that come with a phone and ipod. They are terrible. They look nice and have good sound, BUT the FIT is TERRIBLE. They will not stay in my ears, and I HATE the different left and right ear bud. I am always checking to see which is left and right. Why not make them the SAME!!! I guess this is just a way for Apple to up sell and make people buy a new set of ear phones.

    They keep falling out!

    These little fellas keep sliding out of my ear! I can't walk around for longer than 5 minutes before I have to adjust them to stop them from falling out. In terms of sound quality, they're okay but definitely not better than beats in my opinion as stated in some reviews on here.

    Bad design

    Don't stay in the ear so they hang loose not letting any base get into the ear, resulting in sound that is far too bright. Music sounds bad, and voice like audiobook actually hurt your ear to listen. Luckily they fall out completely with any amount of walking so you don't have to suffer for long.

    EarPods built quality is the worst.

    My sixth EarPods just failed. As the little jack snapped, I snapped and had to write this review. I like the way they sound but these were my last EarPods, because I'm not going to spend 30 € each trimester to get good iOS headphones. EVERY SINGLE ONE I PURCHASED BROKE. Wether it was the piece of rubber near the actual jack was damaged, or a little piece of the actual 3,5 mm jack broke off or one of the headphones died or back connections that I had to rotate the wire to get it going again. I'm sick and tired of it. No more EarPods. Thanks but no thanks apple.

    Too big. Painful to wear. Poor sealing.

    I just started to use these because my real earphones (Shure) were stolen. The fit is terrible and they are too large. It pushes agains the outer part of my ear while being too large to go in. I have to turn the volume up past the safety level just to hear anything because they sit so poorly. With my regular earphones I could block out all sound with just a few bars because the deal was much better. If you have small ears these are not recommended, as no adjustment is possible. Can only tolerate wearing for about 10min.

    Break easily

    I love the fit and the sound of these. I've been through 4 pairs in about a year and a half. The mic remote quits working, shorts out and gets staticky. Not impressed with that at all.

    Uncomfortable and poor fit

    I have a pair that came with my phone, which I've been using since I've misplaced my regular set. These things sound pretty decent, when they stay in. They fit very poorly and frequently slip out of place. In the last 30 minutes, I've had to stop and pick them up off my desk and put them back in at least half a dozen times. If they don't fall out altogether, they slip far enough out of position that I can't hear them very well. If I manage to press them into place enough to stay put for more than a few minutes, the hard plastic becomes very uncomfortable. I have a $9 pair of earbuds I bought at a gas station that fit better than these; guess I'll have to dig those out.

    Good but not reliable

    Got my first earpods with my iPhone 6 - and was really happy, especially with the form, which totally suited my ears (but thats of course subjective). Unfortunately i just picked up my third pair since the first two broke. Not worthy of an apple product which are supposed to be high quality.

    Mine Broke

    The actual quality of the headphones were great but mine broke within the first month of having them. And now the sound goes in and out.

    Poor Quality and Poor Fit

    overall they sound great for $30, then the cord stops working (second pair) after about 2 months. I never could get them to stay in my ears regardless... You can do better - look online. Klipsh is a great place to start or the amazing Bose headphones.

    My Person Review and Experience

    ever since I got my iPhone 6 I've own 4 of these things, they don't seem to last that long even though I find the audio to be okay. Apple should lower the prices on these EarPods just because they don't last that long and the sound quality is not the best but good. If I am going to be getting EarPods every couple of months just because at $29 I would rather just get real quality EarPods from another non Apple brand. I think Apple EarPods are genetic, they feel generic to me and they shouldn't be $29 specially when you have to buy new ones every time. #4 was my last EarPods I would ever buy again, totally disappointed after so many countless times purchasing apple device pieces from previous models because it was the same thing / issues.

    Not as good as Samsung Galaxy S6 earphones

    Inferior sound and lower volume compared to the Galaxy S6 headset from Samsung. The same songs have better bass and higher pitch and volume on the SG6 headset. At times I had to take them off and answer the door because the bass and sound were so good I mistook sounds on the SG6 during a movie for real sounds in my home. Either way you go I bought several pair new of both headsets from amazon.com for under ten a pair and shipping is free if your order is 50.00 or more.
