    awful!!!

    Shame on you apple!!! these are by far the worst headphones that I had bought in my life. The gel adapters fall off at each wear, lost all of my replacements and the little tiny wire screen from where the sound comes out of, these were obsolete for me, wasted my $79 plus tax because I couldn't even return them, Apple would not take them back!! Very sad about the last one!!!

    Not bad

    I think that these headphones are good. Why good - I still can't find a suitable vacuum size and in result the headphones don't hold on in my ears like they have to. I tried all the sizes (small, medium, large), but I need to make experience on my ears.

    Decent performance and great ergonomics but not for audiophiles

    These in-ear headphones are great. They do a great job at canceling out outside noise and while still providing crisp and clear audio. However, they lack range in bass. They are a comfortable fit and if they seem to be of great quality, but we'll see how long they last. They are worth a look if you're looking for headphones that are a comfortable fit, lightweight, and want outside noise canceling. When I blast these headphones I'm able to completely isolate myself from the outside world and the best part is nobody knows what I'm listening too. There is minimal sound leak which make them perfect for use in quiet areas. I'm a college student and think they are worth it if it fits these needs, but if you're looking for the best sound with rich deep bass, then you should look elsewhere, but at this price range, you'll be hard pressed to find similar headphones with this kind of sound quality and beautiful ergonomics.

    Buds pop off, no replacements

    If the screen comes off (mine did), the silicone buds will not stay on with regular use. Even if the screen stays on, as with all in-ear headphones, the silicone buds eventually get lost. UNLIKE other in-ear headphones, Apple does not sell replacements. I have tried skull candy and other brands' soft buds as a substitute and they do not fit. Apple should either make the headphones compatible with other brands' buds or sell replacements. You are paying $79 for a product that will not last long.

    Too Big

    The sound is great, but seriously, the in-ear design is way too big! Apparently designed with men in mind! Even the slightest tug on the cord pulls the headphones our of my ears. Very frustrating.

    No replacement tips

    These headphones are great except for one issue: The silicon ear tips come off very easily and Apple will not sell you a replacement set. Unfortunately once you lose one of the set that fits you this product is utterly useless unless you buy a whole new set for another $80. The lack of replacement parts is a glaring oversight.

    Love these in-ear headphones!

    I have tried multiple brands of headphones including Bose and Beats but these are by far my most favorite. I have two pair of them and have recommended them to all of my friends and family. The quality of the sound is far better than the afore mentioned brands. In addition, they really make conference calls a breeze in an airport or other noisy environment because it cancels out all of the background noise. I highly recommend this product.

    Only effective for up to 20 seconds before becoming easily Dislodged

    These headphones are effective for reducing external noise. However, the effect only lasts literally 15-20 seconds before the in ear headphones come dislodged and external noise creeps in.

    I think the design is really lacking on these things b/c the slightest movement will pull these things out of your ears. They really don't fit in an ear well at all.

    Sitting on an airplane: I could not chew gum b/c jaw movement will knock these out of place; couldn't pop my ears either as we ascended/descended. Walking somewhere: the weight of the cord gently bouncing against your chest as you walk pulls these out of place; if you're walking and don't adjust the headphones, they will likely fall out of your ear completely within a couple of minutes.

    Fantastic sound from some tiny, subtle earbuds

    These headphones sound fantastic. You don't need to be a pretentious audiophile to notice the difference between listening to music with these headphones and Apple's EarPods, the older earphones, and a lot of non-Apple headphones. Everything sounds great and, just as advertised, you'll notice aspects of your music you hadn't before. I did, anyway! Ambient noise cancellation is great, on top of all that. I can easily get lost in my music on the bus, at work, or just outside.

    As pointed out by other reviewers, getting a good fit with the silicone tips is crucial to enjoying these headphones. The mediums that came attached are too big for me. I could barely get a seal, it was uncomfortable at best, and they fell out very easily. The large ones didn't work out either, but I found the small ones fit my ears great. The right earbud will sometimes slip out of my ear, though, if I'm messing with the control buttons built into the microphone or moving around. Still, mic and controls are just like the ones on the EarPods and it's definitely convenient.

    If you're on the fence, I'd say go for it! Try all the silicone tips out, in both ears separately, and I bet you'll find a good fit for your ears. I listen to a lot of different kinds of music and I've been impressed every time I use these, across a pretty diverse range of genres.

    In detail, but sound field is weird.

    This is a pair of good in-ear headphone. Light weight, well designed, comfortable. This is one of the cheapest two unit in-ear headphone that you can get now. The sound is good in detail and balanced. But the sound field is weird; it shapes like a triangle, listener is like near one of the corner. At the same time, the voice may sound thinner than studio-level monitor headphones. But in general, it is a pair of good in-ear headphone that goes with any mobile devices.

    Great sound!

    After a day of using these, I have to say that they impressed me right out of the gate! When the medium tips didn't quite fit my ears right, I switched them out for the included smaller tips and I was blown away. The clarity of the sound is unlike anything I've heard from previous sets of headphones. I frequently listen to a lot of movie soundtracks from Hans Zimmer, James Horner, John Williams, Danny Elfman, Nicholas Hooper, etc. With these, I was surprised by details of those soundtracks that I had never noticed. I have heard others complain that these lack prominent bass, but in the current market of bass-heavy headphones, these are a breath of fresh air. The balance is remarkable. I'm in love with these IEMs. I haven't so much as touched my Sennheisers because these are such a join to listen to.

    NOT WORTH IT

    I've had my headphones for a while now, and I've decided to finally write a review because I can't return them and I'm fed up with losing the rubber tips. These are $80 headphones. I would expect for the rubber tips to stay on when I'm moving them from a pocket in my gym bag to my ears. The rubber tips even fall off when I'm trying to take the out of my ears!! I take care of them and protect them from damage as much as I possibly can, but today was the last straw, as I lost one of them while taking them out of my ears AT MY DESK. I've been a loyal Apple customer since the '90's, and I have to say I'm disappointed in the product quality.

    Apple In-Ear Earbuds

    When first used, the earbuds worked perfectly. I didn't use them that often, especially not during workout, and I noticed that the right ear stopped working. I put it in the car and a couple of weeks later I took it to the local Apple Store to get them replaced. Wow! Big disappointment. I was switched to two salespersons and was told that the earbuds were not covered under warranty because the tip had come off. There was no evidence of damage, tampering, or bad use - I had the earbuds for less than 3 weeks. My recommendation is go bluetooth.

    3rd pair in as many months

    This is by far the best example of horrible engineering I've experienced since the hands-free hamburger holder. On the other hamd - that product probably lasts longer! Same issue for me and all collegues - left earpiece stops working shortly after usage begins. The sound is decent but in no way compares to Bose high end or similar- those who state that have not tried high end phones. But the sum - such bad quality that it renders the product useless.

    Nonsense Ear Phones.

    Really I don't know why Apple making this kind of nonsense ear phones. Always left ear bud is sticking inside ear. When I pulled ear phone out of my ear, ear bud is staying inside ear only.

    Please go for Bose ear phones.

    P.S: Please DO NOT purchase. Go for BOSE.

    can't replace plastic tips!

    I love love love these headphones. They sound great and the small plastic tips fit perfectly in my ear.

    I hate hate hate these headphones because you can't replace the plastic tips. My son keeps taking them off and losing them and I can't replace them. $79 bucks down the drain.
