    FIVE STARS FA SHO!

    I have owned my apple headphones for over a year now. AND I USE THEM EVERY DAY ON THE REGULAR. I love love love them. Before I got my apple headphones I was constantly miserable with headphones that would always break or sound quality would be off in them various brands until I finally found these a year ago and they still work great! I can always turn to apple for engineering quality and I gotta say honestly they are THE BEST PAIR IVE EVER OWNED. Thank you Apple! I was shocked to find more people didn't give 5 stars on here.

    Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice... It's a huge let down.

    Although the In-ear headphones deliver exceptional sound quality, in the two experiences I have had with this same product the integrity of the wiring means the remote control functions become compromised within 6 months of normal usage. The weak point right next to the audio jack means that the threads inside the wire overlap and thus causes mixed signals. I now often have to listen to my music with constant interruptions from Siri because the wire isn't durable enough and it triggers my phone to believe I've pressed the remote to beckon Siris help when I haven't. I'm actually terribly disappointed in this product from Apple.

    They fall out, and they break

    I got this pair of earphones two weeks before, and they kept falling off. The sound quality wasn't as good as I expected it to be, and also, now it is BROKEN. The left ear phone kept falling apart, but the wires didn't break until today. This is also how I broke my old apple ear-phones. Too fragile. The sound quality wasn't quite as good as I expected it to be either. To anyone reading this, IT IS NOT WORTH IT.

    I just received them...

    I put them on out of the box and I won't go into great detail except to say - quit reading reviews and pick you up a pair! I have had them on for about 3 to 4 hours exercising, working answering phone calls - going about my day. Sound is fantastic and comfortable enough I don't notice them. The sound is true and clean.
    I have already recommended them to several associates!
    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

    Terrible

    Sound quality is awful, and these things don't stay in my ears!!! You can get amazing headphones for this price from another brand. DO NOT BUY.

    Terrible sound quality. No Base. I tried everything.

    I tried replacing the earbuds (recommended by some reviewers), but still no improvement.

    They stand up!

    I bought a set of these earbuds a few years ago and went through all of the various size silicon earpieces. Now I need to buy a new set because there are none as good as these. They are pricey, so it would be nice if you could purchase simply replacement silicone buds, but then again, I did get a great deal of use out of them.

    Outstanding!

    These are far the best in ear headphones for the price. For me they are better than the stock headphones that come with your ipod/iphones. Those just wont stay in my ears. I have Ultimate ears which are great but the Apple sound just as good and are lighter in weight!. And you have that great mic! You just have to make sure that you have a GOOD SEAL. That is the secret. If you figure that part out you will be rewarded!

    Overpriced but exactly what I'm looking for

    I walk everywhere and when I'm walking I like to listen to my music. The EarPods that came with my iPhone produce the sound quality that I like when I'm listening to my music. However, when it is windy out, they do not stay in my ears. Since I already like the sound quality of Apple EarPods I figure the sound quality will be the same with these in ear earphones. They are. They stay in my ear even when it is windy out and just like the EarPods they come with they're own carrying case store them when not in use. They are exactly what I'm looking for but the price should be lower in my opinion.

    Comfortable but have had issues

    I figured I would get the nicer headphones because the basic ones are uncomfortable at times. When I first used these I thought they were comfortable and you get 3 different sizes of the rubber earbuds. The sounds quality isn't too bad either. However, I've only had these about 2 months and the one earbud either doesn't work of the sound is really soft. I guess I'll stick with the basic apple headphones since that pair lasted so much longer.

    Terrible fit - Unusable

    I bought these headphones with high hopes. Overall I have had great expereinces with virtually every Apple product I have purchased. However no matter which size in-ear adapter I use they will not work and fall out of my ears.

    I think I made the word a better place by simply throwing them in the trash.

    Greatly under-appreciated In Ear Monitors

    I'm appalled for the misunderstanding and low score reviews of most people here with respect to these under-appreciated earphones. I bought them a week ago and gave them some burn-in, I have to say these are simply the best pair of headphones I've ever owned for the price. Some reviewers report "tin sound" or "bad bass response" and these are simply because it is necessary to test and choose the proper size of silicone tips in order to make a proper seal. Feel free to experiment with the tip sizes, until you find a pair that suits your ears the best. When you do this, the dual drivers deliver rich bass with clear vocals and treble. I have to advise these provide clean, unadulterated sound unlike the earphones most people are used to which heavily colorize, distort and muddy the sound. Even the microphone is so well constructed, Siri won't miss a sentence even with strong winds and when talking to people they say they hear me very clearly like I was there. You won't find dual-driver earphones with such quality for less than $250-400 out there, these include remote control so don't balk at the price, they are a great investment!

    new ear buds hurt my ears

    These ear buds came with my new iPod. I think they are terrible. They hurt my ears. Basically using an older non-apple pair. I think Apple missed the boat with these

    These are the worst

    These are the most frustrating pair of headphones I've owned, I literally just replaced them with $8 Panasonic headphones that I am loving. The apple headphones would constantly fall out of my ears, the rubber ear pieces would constantly fall off, and the sound is much worse than the Panasonics. The mic and volume piece is handy and works as intended.

    Volume control and mic not working.

    Sound quality is good. However, my mic and volume control does not work, which to me gives it its distinction. Even after updating to IOS 9, they stopped working again after a few days.

    Weak Bass

    The Apple EarPods have much better bass response than these unfortunatly. Not worth $79 and I am sure they will be replaced by the Beats line soon.

    Disappointed

    They are not confortable to wear.
    The seals dont hold in ears
    So I think this is a bad product compared to other Apple products,and for this range of price.

    Quality Glaringly Worse than those produced several years prior

    When Apple first sold these earbuds, I bought them after a friend recommended them to me. At the time I was so satisfied to discover that Apple had indeed packaged premium sound for under $100. I recently purchased them again after losing a pair of Standard Beats earbuds, and I was utterly shocked with their thin sound production. No exaggeration, these are probably no better than $20 earbuds. I guess after Apple spent all of that money purchasing Beats and developing its marketing campaign they had to cut costs elsewhere. Actually, shame on me for assuming that it would be a good idea to purchase these when Beats is the new face of their audio campaign.

    Terrible - won't stay in, plugged-up and broken

    These headphones are terrible. The multi-sized silicone covers are either too big (won't go in your ear) or too small (doesn't form a seal and comes out). Worse, once the cover came of IN MY EAR and a co-worker had to take it out with a pair of pliers. That was 3 years ago. I can't believe Apple still carries them. I don't have a huge amount of ear wax, but within a month or two, the left one became plugged. I was able to clean it out a few times, but now it has just stopped working due to the damage.

    Simply the best in-ear headphones for under $100

    I have been using these in-ear headphones since 2008. My first pair last 4 years, and I have bought a handful since that time. I believe the sound quality, richness, and detail are amazing. I listen to many different genres of music, from rock, to jazz, to hip hop, to classical, they all sound clean and rich. I also uses these to workout and exercise and they have held-up very well. Additionally they are covered under Apple's 12 month warranty, so if anything goes wrong, bring them back into Apple for an exchange for a new pair.
