    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.

    These used to be great and highly recommended headphones...

    These used to be great and highly recommended headphones, however with the latest model, I've had the left earbud stop working within a month of purchasing them.

    I've owned 3 pairs of these headphones since they first came out over 10 years ago... the first two pair lasted over 5 years and I had no problems with them whatsoever. But, again, there seems to be something wrong with the left ear bud in this latest model.

    I guess it's time to find a new "go to" pair of headphones :(

    Sad day. I loved these headphones when they lasted longer than a month.

    Perfromance is Great Design Sub Par

    I currently have 2 pairs of these headphones and have enjoyed the sound quality. However, the silicone tips are poorly designed as over time they have ripped or fallen off while removing from pockets. Without the right silicone tip these will not stay in your Ear and are worthless! The worst part is Apple DOESN'T make it easy to purchase replacement Silicone ear-tips. I actually called apple support and they tried selling me a part that was "apparently" the silicone tip for $39 when I paid $80 !! It's shouldn't be this hard to sell these to customers and I'm sure i'm not the only customer who feels this way. It seems Apple doesn't focus as much attention to these type of accessories as they do their main line products.I wouldn't buy these again!

    Poor sound quality, don't stay in ear

    I agree with the other reviews: the sound quality is no better than the standard apple earbuds. Furthermore, these don't stay in my ear- I even swapped out the plastic tops for size large.
