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

    • Written by from Saint Louis

    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

    • Written by from Annapolis

    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

    • Written by from Durham

    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.

    Super bad

    • Written by from Randolph

    Lousy sound quality is the same as the EarPods but with low canceled. If I could return them and I would buy another $20

    Just horrible

    • Written by from Tualatin

    Broke easily, the plastic caps started melting and lost a lot of them(caps) because they would get loose too easily! Sound was ok. And the headphones wouldn't stay on my ears falling very often!

    no match to the earpods!

    • Written by from Mumbai

    i bought these thinking since they are priced more than the earpods, they would be better. execept for the noise ioslation, nothing is better than the earpods.

    they lack the deep bass of the earpods, they slip out of the ears, and they are fragile!

    if u already have the earpods, u are purchasing inferior music quality with these. just get the EARBUDi accessory for the earpods and enjoy much better music with almost the same noise isolation as these earphones.

    thumbs down!

    Terrible quality!

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I expected that with such a high price the sound quality would be so much better, I prefer the regular earphones that come with the iPhone but the store I went to was out of stock so I bought these. I honestly should've just paid a bit more money and got a Bose!

    Don't stay in your ears

    • Written by from Kingston

    I received these headphones as a gift about 3 weeks ago and I was very excited to use them and thought that it would be better then a single ear headphone. I tried the 3 size of buds provided and they just don't stay in my ear. I want to say that I have pretty normal ears, but these buds just slide out as soon as you move you head. It is very frustrating and now I'm not even using them because I get frustrated that they fall out all the time.
    I want to change them, but not sure if they take them back

    Ear agony.

    • Written by from Ceres

    I don't understand whose ears Apple used for the design of these new earbuds? Spock? Dumbo? Prince Charles?

    My ears are in so much pain after having no other choice than to use these while I wait for my new pair of earbuds to arrive in the mail.

    The only way that I could get these to fit comfortably, would be to pulverize them with a hammer and pour the dust into my ears.

    Apple makes a lot of money...the least they can do is provide the consumer (the reason you are rich) with a decent pair of buds that have interchangeable tips.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

    RETURNED 3 TIMES.. DISTORTION & DROPOUTS

    • Written by from Staten Island

    I love apple.. I love the Earpods, I love the iphone i love my Macbook Pro, but MY experience with the Apple In-Ear Headphones was TERRIBLE.. I literally exchanged them 3 TIMES and ALL THREE either the sound cut out, or there was distortion in one ear (at low and high volumes), or a high frequency drop off in the other ear to the point where it sounded like everything above 10kHz was rolled off... (I'm an audio engineer)
    I'm returning the Apple In-Ear Headphones AGAIN and replacing them with either the RHA or the Beats ear buds... and either of those BETTER not have the same problem, otherwise i'll never be purchasing earbuds through Apple ever again. For the record, BIG TIME APPLE FAN... but from my experiences, they really dropped the ball on these Headphones

    SOUNDPROOF!!!

    • Written by from Glasgow

    The sound is good its the soundproof, it is so loud when people are around you. I was listening to a guys tune on the metro and it was like listening to him holding a speaker and i could even to sing along to it. At least you can do well with beats because i have no problem with them.
    Worst earphones I HAVE EVER USED!!!

    Not worth it

    • Written by from Waipahu

    I thought that at $80, these would sound better than the free set that came with my iPhone. Playing the same song on my iPhone, I tried all three sizes of silicone in-ear buds, pushed and held them in as far as I could comfortably handle, and they still didn't have the frequency response of the ear buds that came with my iPhone. They sounded like they were EQ'd for AM radio. Fully unimpressed. If I can't return these for full credit, I would trade them straight up for the cheaper ones.

    some of the worst headphones i've ever owned

    • Written by from Atlanta

    These headphones are poorly constructed and designed. For the first few weeks, they did sound decent... when they were properly sealed and in my ears. That being said, these do NOT want to stay in your ears. The earpieces included are very limited in selection, and none of them make a proper seal for longer than a minute. After a few weeks, wear and tear on these headphones became evident, though I had been no more rough on them than my pair of standard apple earphones. About a month in, one of the connections to the headphones became damaged, and sound only played through one earpiece. Through them in the garbage where they belong. Buy a pair of Shure or Etymotic if you really want some good in-ear monitors.

    Beware

    • Written by from New York

    The sound quality is no better than the standard Apple earbuds. They fall out of my ears when I run / walk no matter which size ear tip I try. I'm returning them. Not a good value.

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from Glasgow

    I wish I'd seen these reviews before I bought these headphones a month ago. The site I purchased thru didn't have this much feedback. I'm very disappointed in the lack of bass...the earphones that came in the box with my iPhone 6 have better sound quality, but won't stay in place. I've tried all three tip sizes that came with this earphones and these still won't fit properly or give the sound quality I'd like. I don't know if I have really small ears or the tips don't give enough variety of sizes for a correct fit. Based on some of the reviews I've read here, I may have to try some kind of replacement tips to see if it will help. Read all the reviews herecarefully before you consider if these are for you.

    Bad! DO NOT! I repeat DO NOT buy these

    • Written by from Weymouth

    I bought these a few months ago because they looked really good and thought they might be better than the ear pods that come free with iPhones. Man was I wrong. The speaker on the left blew out within a couple weeks and I had to use one of the replacements that come with. The ear tips keep popping off like crazy. They give you replacement ones for those as well and I went through all but one of those. Then, the cord itself frayed and exposed the wires.

    Needless to say, I went back to the ones that come free. Those are way better.

    Not Good

    • Written by from long beach

    I had the other ear phones that cost $30 and they were way better, these in ear ones aren't as comfortable and these don't last as long at least in my case, not worth the extra money.

    Terrible and Overpriced!

    • Written by from Needham

    Terrible replacement buds.
    The buds' shape won't fit in many people's ears due to the design. Better if some sort of form sleeve was used for proper fit.
    Because of the improper fit, you have to increase the volume of the iDevice to hear the sound and that there's hardly any bass.
    By increasing the volume, one can go deaf over time!

    Do yourself a favor and buy a competitor's brand. Better yet, spend More money to buy a Better qualify earphone set!
    NO! Dre's, Bose, Skull Candy and other "name brand" units do NOT count as "quality" items but crr@p!

    Returned the item to the store.
    Went and got a pair of Sony earphones, which isn't that much quality but good enough for basic use and it had better fit and bass.
    A decent pair of earphones would cost >$200! Pricey? Yes, but, isn't your ears worth yet? Heck yes!
