    Great for the price

    • Written by Lawrence W from Norwich

    Can’t believe all the negative reviews. I’ve had a pair since I got my iPhone 7+ 3 years ago. In that time, I’ve used them almost every day. I’ve been nowhere near careful with them. They’ve been ripped out of my ears whilst I’ve dropped my phone; they’ve been through the washing machine not once, not twice, but THREE times! After a day to dry, no faults at all. Unbelievable right? Sound quality is perfectly acceptable and arguably the best for £30. Sure, you’ll get better if you pay more but in reality, £30 is nothing for a quality product. I’m only just starting to experience difficulties with mine as of today. I’ve had no issues up to this point and would have no problem getting these headphones again. To all the naysayers, I simply don’t buy your negativity. You just won’t find better for the price. Especially with a lightning port.

    I must say, as for the comments / reviews that they do not last I am opposite instead I am really happy with them. I have had mine since I had gotten my phone last year and they are still staying strong, they are great the sound quality is really good, no problems with the sound jumping, the button works, the mic still works, and overall I am really happy with my earphones.

    Good Pods at ALL!

    • Written by Dilshan M from Mirigama

    This is very comfortable for my ears. Not like other in-ears and/or buds. Sound is decent. I like this much.

    Why so much hate?

    • Written by Marko B from Crepaja

    They are so perfect!!
    Especially with equalizer with high bass they get super loud and bassy (which i love).
    Almost all headphones I’ve tried before weren’t loud and with awesome audio quality like EarPods.
    I see zero reasons to upgrade to any Bluetooth headphones.

    how many of the bad review authors are actually customers?

    • Written by James T from Gaffney

    I’ve been using the same set of ear phones that came with my 8plus since I bought the phone (almost 2.75 years). I always clean them after use, especially after working out. Yes, I even clean the mesh where the sound comes from as directed by the instructions. I have never had any problems with them; except for misplacing them from time to time. They even get stored in the bed of my truck bed with my gym bag when i’m on the go. Maybe I’m just lucky and got a good pair or something because reading all the bad reviews, they should have stopped working 2 years ago... -Just wondering how many of the bad reviews come from employees of competing companies....

    Extremely Happy With This Item

    • Written by Emma M from Craigavon

    Very happy with my earphones! I wasn’t sure to buy this product of apple or not due to the bad reviews, but I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them! And went ahead and bought them :) the sound is perfect, very loud :) and I got them a few days early than expected which was great. I’ll definitely be buying from apple again!

    Was surprised by the way that they posted the item out as this is my first time buying from them :)

    no issues

    • Written by Jane D from Moana South

    Don't understand all the negative reviews. I've had had 4 or 5 Apple phones over the years starting with the 4, and have always used the earbuds supplied. I'm now up to the iPhone XR and am using the ones with the lightning connector which came with the phone with no issues whatsoever, so I don't have any complaints at all. The sound quality is great and the functionality is fabulous. I use them 6 days a week when I go for my 1 hour walk, and if I go into the city on the train, I always use them too.
    great job apple.

    I have two pairs from EarPods and they last till today. I have them for 2 years since i bought the iphone 7 plus and then i took a second pair of EarPods because i hear the music clearly and very loud. I think that i will, probapbly, buy and another one.I am very satisfied from this product and from all that there are on apple store.

    Excellent sound and good price

    • Written by Kudakwashe K from Chitungwiza

    I don’t know why people give the earpods poor ratings, or maybe because they expect too much from apple. I’ve had them since September 2018, they still feel as premium to this day (May 2019). I use these daily and keep them in my pockets. Sometimes i use them when running and they don’t even pop out of my ears. Of course there is room for improvement in sound quality but on design, durability and usability i give them 5 stars. I would recommend anyone to buy the earpods or at least try them out. Trust me, they’re worth the price

    They have been loyal to me, until my daughter swiped them

    • Written by Rosaria W from Kingston upon Thames

    I was nearly not going to bother with a new pair, reading all these 1 star reviews, but then I checked in with John Lewis. You guys writing horrid reviews are either very heavy handed with these headphones, as I have had mine for over year with none of the issues you have been describing, or you are just miserable moaners.

    I am not replacing due to breakage, just simply buying a new pair as my daughter lost hers and took mine to listen to an audio book on the bus on her way to school.

    I think they are brilliant, great sound and I am looking forward to purchasing another pair, but from John Lewis. They have a full house of 5 stars with their reviews. Pays to shop around, I guess!

    Plug them in!

    • Written by Kerrie R from New Farm

    Apple's EarPods are genius. Great sound, and the inbuilt microphone in the lead is very clear, good tone; plus the controller in the lead is fabulous, though I didn't appreciate its functionality at first. I use these EarPods plugged into my MacBook Air when I do live online client sessions (when clients have been using AirPods, instead, the internet connection sometimes breaks up and at times I can hear an echo). They are subtle and comfortable to wear (no awkward headphones on my head!), and the quality is good enough to provide a professional standard for the recording of the sessions which I later send to the client. Couldn't work without these — also light and easy to carry in their Apple case (I bought a 2nd set to keep in my bag). It really is much healthier to use devices that can be plugged in with a direct lead to the device, which contains the field. I hope Apple keep manufacturing these AND provides us with the sockets for these EarPods in all Apple devices. We should have the choice! (I'd hate to have to go back to Windows devices!). The original is still the best, in my opinion.

    These headphones can survive the washer (multiple times��) and they sound very rich and can include every sound, unlike AirPods, BOTH ear prices survive and have equal sound!!��overall they are amazing!!

    • Written by elise H from Fishers

    i've had these earbuds for 2 years since i got my iPhone 7, and they still work, even though i treat them pretty roughly. my cat bit holes into them, they've been crushed, and used almost every day since i got them. i'm so impressed with these!! i'll be getting new ones soon, but only because of the regular wear and tear. still can't believe that they work after 2 years! would 100% recommend to a friend!!!

    Sound and lightening cable are an improvement

    • Written by Jennifer S from Canton

    The lightening jack end seems to last longer than the 3.5 mm jack end and the sound I noticed is more crystal clear has more smoothing out of the harmonics the highs and lows which gives it clarity. It feels good to listen to and improves my relaxation and rest compared to other earpods and things like that. Hoping I can still record music with my jamup app with these. But definitely love them for music being the music lover and audiophile that I am. Thank you apple God bless
    you all♥️��������
