    Sound good. buuuuut....

    • Written by from culiacan

    Firstly the sound quality is way to better than the previous earbuds. Great bass and bright tones, not the best, but still pretty good for a pair of earbuds that came on the box with the phone.
    Now the bad stuff:
    The quality materials.
    The EarPods feels cheap and its about time till they stop working.

    I bought an IPhone barely 2 months ago and these came with them. I was excited to try them out and they worked perfectly up until now. I don't know if I was expecting too much wanting them to last for more then barely two months? Least to say, I was disappointed. I won't be buying from Apple again as their products keep failing me.

    I have had these headphones for 6 months they were the greatest pair I've ever had. Until about 20 minutes ago when the right ear just stopped working. I'm very disappointed in them.

    Sounds great but too delicate

    • Written by from Calgary

    I bought these headphones because they are very comfortable to put in my ears but within a couple of months, the button broke and the sounds are dramatically reduced, I have to turn on the volume really loud to hear my music. Got it exchanged but the new one almost broke in the matter of days, just a light crush and the shell torn apart, I can actually see the wires inside but thank god nothing happened to the sound. Another problem that I myself have had and others have telling me about is that the headphones keep changing the music and sometimes play it whenever it wants, and the sounds got really muffled too, told that to those apple technician but they didn't believe me :(

    I love the sound quality of the headphones. They feel great in your ear and the sound quality is great. But they are EXTREMELY fragile. I've barely had mine for six months and already the right earphone has a crack in it, and the sound is a bit 'un-balanced' because of the right earphone. And my brother, who takes better care of his headphones than I do, accidentally put them in the laundry. Nothing to worry about, right? WRONG! Now both headphones have blue stains on it AND the right headphone is completely cracked and broken (still works better than my headphones, but the right headphone is EXTREMELY uncomfortable in your ear. So I just have to give it 3 stars. The sound quality is great, but they are extremely fragile.

    Good sound but

    • Written by from Newark

    The sound on these "Earpods" are excellent, especially for the price. However, that is only when they actually stay in your ear. Any slight movement I find these moving around and not staying in proper position. They just don't feel secure, I constantly feel as if they are going to fall out, and they do. Great sound for the price, but they aren't comfortable. Spend a few more dollars and get a pair that you don't have to worry about readjusting all the time.

    Won't block ambient noise

    • Written by from VANCOUVER

    These EarPods are OK if you are in a quiet environment, and if you are not moving much. I find that if I try running the Apple EarPods fall out because don't really fit tight into your ear - just hang in the pocket above your earlobe. For the same reason they don't block out ambient noise. The mic/iPhone control works well.

    Good sound quality, bad in-ear placement.

    • Written by from Санкт-Петербург

    Sound is really good, but they sit poorly in my ear - tend to fall off or shift down which leads to bass going away.
    Some grip needed.

    Average sound, average quality.

    • Written by from Bayonne

    I got these "EarPods" when I ordered my iPhone 5. I started using them about 4 months later and what stood out the most to me was the comfort. I know that's been a big complaint by many but for me, they stayed in my ears without falling out and remained comfortable even after hours of use. However, just recently I've been experiencing issues with the microphone. Although I can hear sound from the other person on my line, they randomly stop hearing me. I know it isn't my cell service because I tried other headphones when these started giving out. I'm not sure why the microphone fails to pick up my voice now but I have noticed a bit of tearing at the microphone end of the wire.

    All in all, the sound quailty is fair. If you get these with your Apple device use them. But if it they break, I would not recommend replacing them with another Apple pair. For the price, they are really nothing special. Put your $30 to something better.

    Great, but issues.

    • Written by from Silver spring

    The earphones are great. Everything about it is good. It lasts a long time as well.

    There are two problems I have with these earphones.
    1-The earphones irritate your ears sometimes.
    2-Sometimes, the earphones will send a shock into your ear and leave a stinging pain.

    To be honest, I took off two stars because of those two issues since that is major to me. The pain is easy to adjust to. However, the shocks to the ear are unbearable to the point that I'm scared to put them back on my ears.

    Great Sound, but right earpod went out.

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I've had these earpods for a few months now. They sound great! In fact I ditched the big bulky Beats for these bad boys. Great for running, exercising, etc. However, the right side did go out on me, which was a disappointment. I was hoping to have these forever, now I will have to purchase new ones :( Apple please fix this issue!

    The ear buds are definitely NOT comfortable in my small ears. The sound, however, is great for as long as I can tolerate the pain.

    I love them but, they don't last long.

    • Written by from Midland Park

    I have bought an iPhone 5 in September of last year and they came with the EarPods, after six or so months they broke. I bought a new pair 13 months later and they broke again; doing nothing wrong here, they keep breaking. Love the sound; but can't stand the quality of plastic used to keep the wires safe in side. They just curl up and the wires break and the sound starts to crackle.

    Fix this Apple!

    Nothing to Special

    • Written by from Mechanicsville

    This pair of EarPods were ok. I loved the shape and fit. They stayed in my ears great, but after less than a year, the sound in the left ear went out. I always got the cheaper earbuds because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on them, but the sound in one ear always went out pretty fast. I decided to "splurge" and get these, and I loved them....then the sound went out in one ear....just like the cheap ones. I'm really disappointed and out $30.

    These ear phones sound pretty good, no real complaints. However, I wear these when I work out and they do not stay in my ear very well. That is my only use for these headphones.

    Technical Issue

    • Written by from Toronto

    The sound is absolutely fantastic, but I seem to be having problems with the remote buttons. The "play/pause" button works just fine, but the volume buttons don't. Now I've only tried it with my new 5s but I would think that should be the last of the problems...any ideas...?
