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

    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

    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.

    Good sound, but don't stay in ear

    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

    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...?

    Awesome, but break easily.

    These are a great fit in my ears and the sound quality is awesome! However, mine broke after just four months. I use them at least five times a week when I go running and sometimes in the car if I'm talking on the phone and don't want to use my hands. I was very careful and always kept them stored neatly, and away from moisture when they weren't being used. I don't know why they broke, but I'm bummed they did! Loved them.

    remote too insensitive

    the sound of the earpods are great and the size is perfect for my ears. but the remote is so not sensitive that every time i try to turn up or turn down the volume or change the song i have to press VERY hard for it to sense me. and sometimes even when i press very hard it still doesn't work. i dont know if every earpod has this problem or just mine. but i think a product of apple should never be so dull like this.

    Great Sound and Design, But Major Flaw

    I want to start by saying that I love the sound and shape of these headphones. They sound amazing and the headphones fit in my ear so that they are loose enough to easily remove, but tight enough that they don't just fall out of my ears when moving around. However, there is a major performance flaw in these headphones. This has happened with both of the two pairs I have had. The audio volume in the right headphone gradually gets quieter. Every few weeks I must adjust the left headphone to be quieter so that the sound stays balanced. By the end of a few months I can not even hear the music or whatever I'm listening to at full volume in places like a bus. Because of this my current pair will be my last pair.

    Ok

    the sound is very good and it blocks out most of the noise. they stay in the ear well for me.

    Disappointed

    After a few months of using these after i purchased the iPhone 5, the earphones jack broke off inside my iPad. I'm currently so disappointed right now because I always use my iPad for watching videos. Not only have I broken my earphones, I also have ruined the audio of a perfectly good iPad. Other than that, the earpods are quite good and a vast improvement from the old ones, although if you were to buy them as a single product, I wouldn't recommend these.

    Good and Bad

    I like it because the size of your ear is fit but I dislike it because it very easy to break. I brought it on Jan but now June and it already not working. I have to spend more money to buy it.

    EarPods too large

    Sound is superb !! However, the EarPods are too large and hurt me after wearing them for just a few minutes. Wish they had cushions on the EarPods and smaller sizes. I am a full-sized adult with smaller ear canals.

    I like it but...

    I liked them but they break on u with in 3 months or the month u get it..... its the left main speaker that breaks on u ... but the little speaker on the left works but its really hard to hear music with one hear faded but the other ear not faded. but when they did work it was a good experience, the bass kicked your ears but what I think broke it is the bass in dubstep music ... I have a app that makes the a lot stronger so I might of popped the left main speaker with the insane bass It said that it can withstand the bass on apple. I over all prefer headsets if u want bass but u want to just listen to music then get these ear pods

    THE TRUTH!

    I bought these after reading these great reviews and was excited to hear for myself.

    Truth is they sound OK, just OK.. NO WHERE NEAR my Klipsch Image S4i.
    People claiming they sound every bit as good are not really listening

    As for the fit? They seemed to stay in place but it felt like they were gonna fall out.

    I believe that part of the problem is they leak way too much of the outside noise. They also dont have the bass response people here are claiming probably due to the fact they just kind of barely rest in your ear.

    I was disappointed but hey they are $29.99. I returned them same day. For me I'd rather spend a few more bucks than listen to these.

    Great sound, horrible comfort

    As a sound technician and a musician, audio quality is essential for me. These EarPods put out sound quality that rivals some of the top companies (SkullCandy, Beats, Sony, etc.). The one issue I have with these are the comfort. Recently I broke my usual SkullCandy headphones and have been left with these for my everyday listening. At first they are fine but the longer you wear them the worse they get.

    So for those that are interested in purchasing these, they are great for small amount of time use and being able to talk without holding your iPhone; but if you are trying to find EarBuds for long term listening sessions (studying, leisure, etc.) might I suggest a full ear pair of headphones.

    Better fit, better sound.

    They fit fine in my ears. Good sound for the price,(came with my iPod touch so not complaining) but the only problem I have with these is if they get scratched, they start to become gritty and uncomfortable to wear in your ears. The inside of my right ear is starting to get irritated and I think it broke some skin so you might want to reinforce them with rubber just like you did with the older ones ok hope this helps improve the product for next design!! I am a big fan of apple! c:

    Work great, but expiration date?

    Don't get me wrong; the EarPods work great. They actually stay in your ear, and the sound quality is spot on. The only problem I have is that recently, the right EarPod blew. I mean, no sound comes out. I never got any water on them, I never stepped on them, I never sat on them, so I don;t know what the deal is. The left one works fine, but the right one has gone mute. This a recurring problem for anyone? Because it's really bugging me. :(

    They were OK.

    The earpods were probably the best headphones I've ever used. The bass was good, and they were pretty clear to listen to music with. But they are not very durable. About a week ago the controller stopped working, than a few days later they just gave up. If you're interested in spending $40 to have headphones that will 8 months, be my guest. But I would not recommend them if you are looking for long term usage.
