    Do not waste your money

    • Written by Taynah S from Bethesda

    I had these earpods for a month, then the volume in the right one started to get lower. Then I changed to a new one, the same thing happened. It doesn't matter if you clean it up, the sound gets lower and lower. And they are always falling from my ears. I give up. $29 is a fortune for this piece of...

    Apple can't get this right.

    • Written by Douglas P from Redlands

    I don't know if it's part of their plan to get you to buy their airpods(most likely) or if it's the general trend in technology not to make anything that lasts. These things have failed within 3 months of every pair I have ever owned. I will be buy another brand to replace them.

    They Do Not Last

    • Written by michalette H from Atlanta

    I received a pair with the purchase of my iPhone 7 and they went out one side at a time. I bought a pair and at $30 they did the exact same thing in less than three months. I have no problem with buying Apple products but please don't make them unnecessarily difficult to work with.

    terrible, 0 stars

    • Written by Selma A from Cumming

    the left one stopped working after only a few months, and ive been extra careful with them bc i know how easily these earbuds break�� and now i cant even exchange them because i didnt keep the box it came with. im seriously considering switching to samsung, at least they have a normal headphone jack. like if your product breaks this fast, at least make it cheaper??? definitely not worth $30

    Bad quality headphones

    • Written by Andres S from Melbourne

    They gave me issues after 2 months of being purchased, I had to buy a fake 3.5mm headphones which lasted way far more than original ones, Cheap and low-quality "original" headphones for sure

    Overpriced and weak

    • Written by Christopher M from Melbourne

    Overpriced for the quality and the cord is not as robust as the older generation 3.5mm version. Mine broke after 2 months of use whereas I still have all my previous 3.5mm editions dating back to 2007 in working order after years of use.

    Total Waste of $$$

    • Written by Brian O from Chicago

    I've bought 3 pairs of these headphones and they always break. First one side goes - then the other. I've tried to use the old school headphones with the lightning adapter, which is even worse. When the adapter is plugged in - the slightest movement or tweak to the cord - opens up apps, mutes the volume, fast forwards music tracks. I've also purchased 2 different lighting port adapters and have had the same result.

    Why does Apple keep changing the ports and connector cables all the time - other than to generate revenue from morons like me who keep purchasing their junk. I wish that Apple would just stick with something that works and make it a standard.

    These are horrible...

    • Written by J L Z from Tampa

    I received a pair of these buds with my Iphone 7 purchase. They broke within 5 months. I purchased another pair at my local Verizon store and they broke within 3 months. The right side stops working then both sides stopped. No sound at all. I rebooted my phone several times, plugged and unplugged the buds several times but nothing. I tried to get a free replacement from Verizon and they just sent me on my way. Not sure what to do next but visit the Apple store and fight with them to get a replacement. I will reconsider another type of phone. The iPhone is just too much trouble.

    Don’t last

    • Written by Zach S from Henderson

    I’ve gone through many pairs of these headphones and they never last more than a couple months, now I’m stuck with the old apple headphones and those are lasting longer than these have ever lasted

    Have bought 4 pairs in the past 6 months.. one always ends up going out and no matter what is done, the sound never comes back. For $30 you’d expect these things to last longer than a month or 2.. absolutely unacceptable!

    Waste of money. Not worth $30 for easily broken earpods

    • Written by opeyemi O from Middle River

    I have had these earpods 3 times in a row in the past year; 1 given to me with purchase and the other 2 bought by me. it lasted for a given amount of 2-4 months at most. I am extremely disappointed at how Apple sells these at such an expensive price to only be such poor quality (except the audio) and it’s durability. I will definitely be purchasing my EarPods of a different brand elsewhere.

    I'm seriously going to stop purchasing these. They last a few months then they just stop working. The volume is turned all the way up and I can barely hear anything. Same thing happened with the Air-pods. Going to start looking elsewhere. Apple needs to get it together when comes to their headphones.

    Needs to be redesigned

    • Written by Ian T from Liskeard

    The one that came with the phone were prone to the cutting in and out mentioned in other comments and lasted about 9 months before ceasing to function, they were replaced under warranty. The replacements lasted about 4 months, they are used a lot but used with care. I will try and get them replaced under warranty again but that is a 58 mile round trip + parking so almost the cost of replacing them. On a second phone the same has happened and the lightning to jackplug adaptor also broke. Really not good enough whatever happened to Apple's reputation for robust high quality design and engineering? I started with Apple on an Apple 1 as a university student and have had loads of machines from performa, to powermac, Apple Newton, digital camera, various laptops, servers, iMacs, iPods, iPads, iPhones, most were brilliant innovative and robust but i am really disappointed with the drop in standards over the last few years, my iPad Pro lasted til a few weeks out of guarantee and we have been through loads of headphones in the last 3 years.

    If only 0 stars were an option

    • Written by Lucy M from Cambridge

    I have been forced to purchase three pairs of these headphones over the last four months. They are not fit for purpose. The wire in the jack continuously bends meaning the sound goes on and off. Whilst listening to music this somehow causes voice control to turn on and off and skip through tracks whilst in Spotify and in Apple Music. Sounds plays through headphones then blares our of the phone. Normally a lover of apple products having purchased iPhones and laptops over the years. Definitely would not recommend. No doubt a ploy to force customers to spend up and purchase the air pods. Utterly disappointed, infuriating experience.

    Came with iPhone 7, stopped working

    • Written by Deepa P from London

    I am not very happy that first of all I need a special earphone to go with iPhone and also they break so easy. These things put me off from getting any Apple product. Came on site to buy new ones but discouraged from all the negative reviews. May be I will change the phone and switch to android.
