    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.

    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.

    Only lasted 6 months

    • Written by Millie E from Stotfold

    5 months and a 3 weeks after purchasing these earphones with an iPhone XR, the left ear stopped working and would not produce any sound. A week later the next ear stopped working all together. I am very disappointed with this product as the warranty stated this product would last a year.

    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....

    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.

    Ok so I bought these ear phones in December and just after 4 months they stop working randomly so I went to the nearest apple shop and they did get me another pair and they have not broken since but for what they are they are extremely over priced.

    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 :)

    Great but Break

    • Written by Ben S from Ellensburg

    These are probably the best sounding earphones on the market. However, they will break after a month of being in your pocket. This is my 4th pair this year and I feel ashamed that I keep giving Apple money.

    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.

    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

    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
