    Don't waste your money

    I can't tell you how many pairs of these I've had that have broken after a short time. Most recently I took a pair out of the box and the FIRST time I wore them they shorted out. Now every time I try to use them Siri activates, music fast forwards or skips to another song. Will never buy these again.

    Apple Earbuds

    Apple earbuds are not constructed very well. They never stay in your ear when you are using them. They constantly fall out and they don't fit snugly into your ear. You can forget trying to work out using these earbuds to listen to music because they easily fallout the moment you start to exercise.

    Beyond frustrating

    To be honest- I really like the fit & sound of these earbuds... And that's why I get so very frustrated every single time they break. And they will break. They ALWAYS break. My last pair has lasted me all of 3 months. It really sad man. I've been a dedicated Apple user for a long time, but lately it feels like Apple has been taking advantage of my loyalty. And that's REALLY sad.

    I've had 3 different earpods. One for a work phone, one for a personal phone and one given me by a friend. They have all conked out. First there is a little static when the base of the earpod near the phone is touched. Then it starts to stop and start music, podcasts and audiobooks causing you to have to push the button to start them again. Finally, it starts to hang up on phone calls and skip forward/stop music, podcasts and audiobooks. 3 earpods Apple...3 earpods (you guys should be ashamed of yourselves). The best way to prolong this inevitability is to put them back in the clear plastic case whenever you are not using them. Granted, this will only fend off (as effectively as a long stem hammer in the center of a zombie horde) the eventual malfunction of the earpods. I'm not going to pay $30 for a new pair. I may just have to look for some knockoffs...smh

    These are the worst. They just fall out of my ears and are very painful. Honestly, how do these stay in? Horrible garbage!

    No good

    These earphones are incredibly uncomfortable. They are one size so do not fit all ears and make your ears hurt very quickly due to them being solid, with no silicone grips. The connection gets very static sounding if the plug gets moved while in use.

    It doesn't last long

    I just got my phone recently and the earphones stopped working for no reason I don't want to waste $29.00 dollars for something that doesn't last a long time.

    Seriously awful

    The sound is really good, holy cow, why are these things so huge and hard? I tried to wear them while listening to music, but I go through only 1 song before my ears just HURT. They are way too big and hard.

    They last about 9 months. Shoddy construction

    These things are terrible. No wonder apple is trying to make us all go wireless. The jack goes bad in about 6 months of normal use. Stop trying to make us buy expensive wireless headphones and make these things a little better. The jack connection is the first thing to go. after that, the audio will start to go out. It's happened with every pair I've had over the years.

    slippery suckers

    These do not stay in my left ear. Right ear is fine, only occasionally falls out or slips. The left does not fit my ear at all, and with no grippy silicone, it's out of my ear in about 5 seconds. Do not fit all ears.

    One star is too much

    I would give a zero if I could. I'm very surprised Apple hasn't reinvented these yet, especially with new lighting connector style and wireless version coming out. These are a very poor fit for all ears. Without some type of foam or rubber to hold them in place, they dislodge and fall out. If you "jam" them in your ear, they stay in place if you are perfectly still and are very uncomfortable. The moment you move, they dislodge. If you set them in the crook of your ear without pushing them in, the sound quality is not as good and they fall out even easier. I have a desk job and am constantly manipulating these to put them back in my ears. No wonder a bunch of folks have come up with attachments to hold them in your ear. Hmm... That may be the Apple goal... Create a separate market for the modification of their cruddy earpods.

    I'm in the market for better earbuds... any recommendations anyone?

    Earbud fit

    Hate these! I liked the old version better that comes with comfort and different size additions for fit and comfort. These are not beneficial for people with smaller ears and hurt!

    Always stops working after 2 months of use.

    They always stop working in at least one earbud after 2 months. My dad swears up and down that Apple is the best so he only allows for me to purchase their products. I usually have to call them and let them know I'm having problems. And what they say I should do never helps.

    Total Failure

    The left EarPod never really worked, apart from the occasional vibrations and sharp, crass screeches! Totally disappointed! Would have rated no stars if that was an option!

    Break easily

    Only bought my last pair in Janurary and they are already broke. I've actually lost count of how many sets I've went through.

    I would never pay money to get a replacement for them

    I just opened them out of the box not even ten minutes ago, and I already have to twist them in order to bring the sound back. They immediately started cutting out. Honestly, my old headphones that I got 3 years ago with my HTC m7 still work amazing and have never given me any problems. So I would gladly buy those again (if I had to pick between the two). Save yourself the money and literally get any pair of headphones from Wal-Mart/Target/etc. once your headphones die. I feel like Apple headphones used to be a lot better back in the day, but recently the quality has changed. Or that's how it feels to me.

    Wiring problem - sound cuts out intermittently

    I read the reviews of this product, both good and bad, and decided to give it a try. I was very disappointed to find that the cord has a defective connection at the plug-in connector so that the sound cuts out intermittently. This was right out of the box. I expect better quality control when buying Apple products.

    The worst earphones I've ever used

    They're very uncomfortable to use and they fall out constantly.

    Truly garbage quality. The sound is fine, but the wiring is so touchy. I've gone through 2 pairs in the last month (4 pairs in the last 6) from faulty wiring and it's so irritating. I only use my headphones during my commute to work and while I'm at the gym so I'm not asking for much. But my pair that I got 2 weeks ago went out in one of the speakers today and I've had enough. I will never recommend these to anyone and I will never purchase these headphones again. Really really disappointed in this product.
