    Earpods Lightening connection getting disconnected frequently.

    This is a very serious hardware issue that apple must fix as soon as possible, before its too late. i listen to music while riding my bicycle, and this lightening connetor earpods get disconnected for every 2 min or 3 . If apple is not giving a sturdy earpods which is very basic right of any iphone user whats the point in spending so much for an iphone. very much dissappointed with its lightening connector earpods weak design and purposeless removal of standard headphone audio jack port from iphone7 onwards therby forcing and leaving iphone consumers to suffer their fate with these useless unsturdy weak lightening connector earpods

    Note : No complaint with Audio quality , But what to do with Audio quality if its not able to reach the Ears.

    Poor build quality!!!!

    Got these with my iPhone and they sound exactly the same as the old ones. They just don't last as long!
    The build quality is terrible, had to get these replaced from apple and new ones have now also broke.
    The lighning connector is very fragile and weak! I don't know how Apple can charge £29 for them?!
    This is the same with the Lightning charge/sync cable.. Absolutely rubbish quality!

    They Are Absolute Garbage Yet Convenient And Cheap I Guess

    For the first month or two, these ear buds work fine, and are comfortable, if a bit loose in the ear. They're not headphone quality for audiophiles or anything, but no headphones are. The shipping is free to where I live, too. However, I've burned through at least four of these, and I've only had my iphone 7 for a year. That means the average lifespan for this product, which costs over thirty United States Dollars after taxes, is only three months. 120USD/year on these things??? If I wasn't so bad about losing the adapter for the 3.5mm headphone jack headphones, I'd just buy a $10 store brand pair every couple months, and I'm sure they'd last just as long or longer. Waste of money, waste of time, waste of effort. If you're not like me and you can keep track of the adapter, do so at all costs. Buying these overpriced headphones is the sacrifice I make for my forgetfulness and reluctance to purchase more than 1 or 2 adapters that I keep losing. Avoid this hassle at all costs.

    Broke after 4 months....

    For such an innovative top brand, I am utterly disappointed to find out my new earphones broke after 4 months of purchase. Please improve the quality of this product...

    Can’t even make a decent set of EarPods?

    All these cool gadgets and they can’t update these useless EarPods? Why even include them in the box? They’re so bad. Waste of box space and money. Either upgrade them or don’t make us pay for them when we buy a new device. It’s been five years since they updated the design, but all they did was go from one crummy design to the next. 99% of customers just buy new headphones from third party companies.

    Ouch

    I've had the new iPhone for a about 1 month and have been using the headphones walking to and from work. I live in Toronto and it's quite chilly, each time I am bundled up in my winter gear I get a fairly strong electric shock through both earbuds. This is not a pleasant experience!

    This happened for about 2 weeks before I had to switch to a new pair.

    Do not recommend!

    Product review, not old person review.

    I’ve been using my EarPods for the last 2 years and they work just as good as it was originally, besides tiny scuffs and dirt. Reviews of poor quality must not have been in good care. The whole point of Apple ditching the 3.5mm jack is to use wireless headphones (because blue tooth works on EVERYTHING). Wireless is the future. Do you expect to be using wired headphones in the next 5 years? The EarPods are for people who want to stay in the old age who like plugging things in. But Apple ain't forcing you to get these because you can just as easily buy lighting versions of your favorite earbuds you use for your phone.

    Faulty right out of the box

    I bought an iPhone 8 today and the EarPods with lightning connector were faulty right out of the box. I checked to make sure the port wasn't faulty, and confirmed it was just the EarPods. This is pretty disheartening for a product I bought less than six hours ago.

    They work

    They work. What more is there to say? They sound solid, they work fine. Cable could be higher quality I guess.

    EXTREMELY INCONVENIENT! I HATE IT!

    I'm a college student; I study at library few times a week. So I'm out for library whole day, I always pack iPhone USB cord, MacBook charger, earbuds, and MacBook, and heavy books. Now I'm 30 mins before my exam, this is drive me insane. First time ever write a review.

    I can't listen to any lecture videos and even music when I am studying with my MacBook. Ok, fine with music, I will just turn on my music APP on my phone. But my phone does not have enough battery for a long term of studying; I have to take out of this stupid lighting connector Earpods switch to my iPhone USB cord to connect to my Macbook.

    Most annoying thing is I can expect all the course video material will be open without a browser on my laptop! And this earpods just can't do anything when I am studying in the library.

    And, the convertor for Aux to Lightning only support for Aux plug into a lightning output, I mean, what is point?!!!! There is no lightning output on my laptop? There is only one lightning output on my phone, and I can charge it when it's occupied!

    It literally forces my habits, either charging, or no music, and do not hear anything from my laptop.

    Sound is great. It's insane that I can't plug these into a Mac.

    The sound is much improved over the old AUX headphone, but my initial delight over sound quality has been tamped down by my daily frustration that I can't use these headphones in any other devices. The products quality is 5 star, but the daily experience is closer to a 1.5. If apple insists that lightning is a connector worth using they should include it in their full family of products (at least.) A new Macbook has USB C ports for days, but I can't use the headphones designed by and provided by Apple in any Mac (or any other device for that matter.)

    Seriously?

    Had my iPhone 7 for less than 6 months and the headphones already stopped working. My headphones from my iPhone 4 still work! Obviously there is a serious issue here. Stop ruining your products in means of forcing people to spend more, people have are leaving Apple left and right because of this.

    Doesn't change anything in my life

    I bought it today for just $20 to use on my iPhone 5. I noticed that it just make things more complex for me, one time that i have to buy an adapter to charge and listen to music as same time. This thing also consume 10x more my battery charge, so, this thing just make the things more complex. I'm changing to the 3.5mm earpod again.

    Very disappointed with this product

    They came with the iPhone 7 which was good however they do not deliver the best sound quality and broke after only two months of on and off usage. The lightning adapter also came with the iPhone which I ended up using after the earphones broke and this was even worse quality.

    Not impressed: Time to switch to Android?

    It's unfortunate that Apple decided to force iphone 7 customers to use Apple earpods because of the lightning connector (and an adapter that's faulty and also easy to lose). Had I known, I never would have allowed my son to buy the 7. For a teenage boy, he takes pretty good care of his earbuds, yet after just 3 months, they have a short. The imitation Apple earpods I've bought in the past, which were much cheaper, have lasted much longer. The fact that the latest IOS is forcing iphone users to use only genuine Apple earpods is enough to make me consider switching my family to Androids.

    Breaks easily

    I am now on my second pair of EarPods within 6 months’ time. The first stopped working all together and failed to produce sound, while the second simply did not withstand my failure to treat it with the utmost delicacy. I hate that the lack of a decent headphone jack in the iPhone 7 has led me to purchase such a low-quality product.

    replaced them twice in 8 months..

    I've had to replace them after 3 months, and now 5 months in with the new ones I have to go in again, both times because the sound stopped coming out of one ear? 2 stars for good sound..
