    Love them but...

    These are my favorite headphones, but I want to get the iPhone 7, and these are not compatible. Please make a version that is either wireless or has a lightning port! Please!!!

    Great product

    Everyone who has written a review saying "its trash" or "they don't fit" either doesn't know how to change the silicone buds or hasn't used them. SMH

    Solid, responsive headphones for the price

    $79 is hard to beat for good dual-driver headphones. My first set lasted from 2008-2014 - at which point I replaced them. Still going strong in 2016. I do suggest getting extra ear covers (the silicone tips). Make sure that the right size is used for optimal base response. The wrong size will result in little to no bass.

    Very clear mids and treble. Quiet bass. Two speakers per ear-bud.

    Cheapest dual driver in-ear headphones--meaning that each bud has two speakers instead of one.

    Very neutral headphones. Great for classical music. Mediocre for electronic music. Bass is there, but for many it may be too quiet as most individuals are not used to relatively flat spectrum reproduction. This explains the poor reviews, and why equipment that sweetens the bass and treble sells better--Bose, Skull Candy, etc.

    These are my second pair. They do rip easily if you don't take care of them.

    Also look into buying foam tips. The insulation from outside sound is far superior, and thus the bass doesn't leak out and is stronger. Be warned, foam tips wear very quickly and can be pricey--10-20 dollars for a set of 3. The included tips are very durable, but are part of the reason the bass is weak.

    I'm disappointed they don't have a new version with lightning port

    I love these earphones. I've gone through 2 different pairs in about 6 years. I use them 3-4+ hours a day. They're really comfortable and they don't break. I need to replace my current ones because the wires are starting to show, the ear phones still work though. I was really hoping apple would upgrade them to include lightning port, but so far it doesn't look like it. I'm disappointed because It's difficult to find comfortable earphones.

    I am a mess and these are wonderful.

    I left my earphones in my pocket and they went through both the washer and dryer and still have the same exact sound. good stuff.

    Don't believe the negative reviews, these are incredible, and I'll prove it

    These headphones are the most underrated product Apple sells.

    These are EARPLUG headphones. They plug your ears, not just sit inside them like other types of earbuds, and they certainly don't sit in top of your head like two small cans of cat food. They are elegant, minimal, and wonderful.

    No other headphones come close to blocking outside sound, letting your music gloriously play in your ear as it was meant to be enjoyed.

    Screaming baby in seat 34F? No problem, pop these in, and you'll enjoy several dB of noise reduction instantly. You don't even need to put on the music.

    Horns, taxis, sirens, or just noisy spouse asking why you're a bum?

    No problem, put these on, and you won't hear a thing.

    Because they block outside sound, they leave your ears with nothing but the joyous music you desire. It arrives clear and booming (if you're into bass) because its airtight in your ear canal the entire inner ear is used as a bass chamber.

    It's a shame because people don't fit them correctly. Apple generously gives you several sizes to fit. But no consumer product can have every size needed, so they might just not work for you.

    But if you do get them sized correctly, you will absolutely be amazed at the sound quality.

    I really hope Apple releases a Lightning cable version of these soon!

    Best headphones I have ever owned. Period.

    First of all, these have the clearest sound quality of any headphone I've tried, barring my HDMI gaming headset. For the price, these have been amazing and also the longest lasting headphones, still going strong at 5 years. The biggest thing is to choose the right size rubber bud piece to fit your ear, and when you do, it will turn them into noise-cancelling headphones.

    Now Apple, all you have to do is make these wireless too so I can use this for the iPhone 7, then we'll be cool.

    Love

    Please NEVER get rid of these in-ear headphones Apple. I tried them when they first came out and never looked back. Things got even better when the remote was added. They are amazing for studying if you need to block things out, and stay put as long as you have selected the right size. I take them everywhere and don`t even use the protective case, they still last me a few years. If you switch out the wire mesh caps they last even longer. I recently lost my latest pair that I had for 2 years and thought I would try some other brands- they were awful. I don`t understand the low ratings because I only hear beautiful, rich sounds with these. So please Apple keep these forever.

    Best Earphones

    I would like to recommend these earbuds, because they are still going strong. Even after rigorous usage the past two years, which has never occurred to me. The Apple In-Ear Headphones are not for your typical EDM-lovers. Since the earphones uses two drivers: one for bass and one for treble. With this mechanism the earphones achieves the maximal performance. Thus the sound is being protruded separately and is not getting distorted. The bass is not too heavy and the mids/highs are extremely clear. If you like natural sounding earphones, then these earphones are perfect for you. Considering the fact that normal IEMs with armatures costs > €150, these earphones have a fairly reasonable price. I bought them for €24,95 on sale.

    Fantastic

    I haven't found better headphones for my ears. Nothing else fits in my ear; others fall out and are uncomfortable but with these, using the smallest size tips, they fit inside my ear canal and the sound is amazing! They have been through the washing machine and dryer twice and been crushed by gym equipment but they still work!

    Awesome Earphones

    The ADDIEMS are amazing, with a pretty flat soundstage (almost clinically flat (means it sounds good in any genre of music)), and decent isolation, I'd recommend these to anyone who is sick of the EarPods. If you can't hear any bass, its because you're not getting any seal. Try Comply Whoomp! covers, and you'll hear more than enough bass. With the current silicone tips, I think that they are perfect, and pack a punch in a small package! The mic and remote works great, and if you look after them, they wont break! If apple makes a pair of (non-beats (I'm not a basshead)) headphones that are as good as this, Im in.

    Pros: Very clear, flat soundstage, great sub-bass, good bass, and very good mids and highs. Not using inferior dynamic drivers, (dual armature is very good).

    Cons: Could have squeeezed another armature in there if they tried, doesn't feel that premium, and takes around 10 seconds to put on, and 30 seconds to wind into the case. A little expensive?

    Great Headphones!

    A million thanks to all the reviewers who stressed the importance of the right-sized ear tips. I found the sound "tinny" with the medium sized tips. With the large tips in place, the sound is impressive. Very comfortable as well. So glad I made this purchase!

    Try on all 3 sizes

    Seriously the amount of negativity these headphones are getting is not fair. Please try all 3 ear tip sizes and give it some time to burn in after that you can judge the earphones. I must say to bass heads don't get these definitely not for you but for everyone else get these now the audio is wonderful and the build is great. In fact I used to be more on the bass side but have gotten used to these and love the warmth and extra detail I get out of these earphones. Proudly give 5 stars :)

    These sound fantastic - Try foam tips!

    The ear tips that ship with these headphones detract from what is otherwise, a really great sounding product.(I should have knocked off one star...Apple should ship these with optional foam tips for those that can't get along with the silicone ones!)
    Initially, I could not get the silicone tips to seal properly and the phones sounded truly awful! Fortunately I had a pair of memory foam tips laying around from a previous set of headphones that fitted and the difference was stunning.
    'Comply Whoomp' foam tips are advertised for use these headphones. The foam tips sound so much better than the silicone ones, I am sure there are other makes that will also fit. Buying new tips is adds to the initial cost but the difference in the sound is well worth it.
    To sum up, if you can get the seal right on these phones they sound 1000% better. (Better than headphones that have cost me twice the price and have had 5 star reviews!)
    Twin drivers; 5Hz to 21kHz, great balanced sound...bargain! (and I never thought I'd ever say that about a bit of Apple kit!)
