    Went through 2 pairs in 3 months.

    • Written by Wojciech K from Menlo Park

    The sound quality is good.

    They aren't reliable at all. I hear cracks and noise during listening to Audible on iPhone 7 Plus. The audiobook sometimes stops without pressing the control button.

    The worst is that they break. After a month of regular audiobook use the left headphone stopped working. I got it replaced, and once again, after a month, the left headphone stopped working. It's nice it's easy to replace them at Apple Store, but it's terrible experience overall.

    Nowhere near old Apple Headphones with a jack on my older iPhone 6s. Had the same pair since iPhone 5s and they worked great.

    can't deny how comfortable these headphones are to wear and the sound quality is great, just frustrated how many times i've had to replace these headphones since getting my iphone 7. seem to break a lot quicker than the old headphones and they're not exactly cheap to replace

    Horrible Earbuds

    • Written by Angelic S from Tucson

    I got a pair of these earbuds with my iPhone 7 when I got them. A few months later, I dropped my phone with them connected and by some strange reason the part that connects to my iPhone bent. So when I reconnected my earbuds to my phone expecting them to work, they didn't! I tried everything along with even trying to bend the part that connects to my phone back to normal but NOTHING worked. I ended up having to pay $30 for a new pair. Now, the EXACT THING just happened again so looks like I'm paying another $30 for earbuds. You should really fix this cause now I'm regretting leaving my android. Also, I wish I can rate this item a small piece of the star but sadly, I cannot.

    These Work Great For iPhone, but Not Compatible with Macbook Pro

    • Written by Nick C from North Hollywood

    I bought these thinking they would seamlessly work with all Apple products (or at least with an adapter). However, I come to find out that I cannot use these headphones with my Macbook Pro. There is no adapter or dongle to make this work with your Macbook either. So frustrating. I returned them within a week.

    If you have a Macbook Pro from 2015 or before DO NOT BUY unless you are fine with them only working on certain Apple products or if you want to carry two types of headphones around all the time.

    Not very durable

    • Written by Eliana S from San Ramon

    At first I thought that these were very well made. It sounded very clear, or at least much better than my other earbuds. But today the part that connected to the lightning connecter broke off from the wire and EarPods, when I have not even had these for one whole month. This gives me doubts that the dongle, charger, or future EarPods will last very long.

    The best earphones just keep getting better

    • Written by Trevor I from Stuarts Draft

    I can officially confirm. The new Lightning based EarPods do in fact sound better than the old 3.5mm variant. For my song sound quality test, I chose "Golden by Parade of Lights" on Apple Music. (I suggest you do the same). The sound quality is richer, and more alive. The bass is heavier, and am I sensing some sort of surround sound EQ built in? I must say, I have tried other headphones and earphones from other leading manufacturers, and the Lightning EarPods are the best out there. Go out and buy them right now! $30? They should be worth at least $50.

    Not a fan.

    • Written by Becka S from Muncie

    Let me start off by admitting that the sound quality is good. That is the only thing I like about this product. They don't fit in my ears, and I can't use them with anything other than my iPhone and my iPad. Want to listen to music on your laptop? You're screwed. Apple, please develop in-ear buds with a Lightning Connector. At least make the option available to those whose ears these don't fit!

    Guess people really do have different size ears - Personally I hate silicon inserts in my headphones; and for me they arent needed. This fit perfectly and better than any other (including adjustable insert) headphones ive tried...execpt for the old Earpods - those fit me great too...

    So I guess if the old ones fit you, these will too!

    Oh My God

    • Written by Nisha S from athens

    First off, I would like to say when I received my EarPods I was very excited because they were new & the sound quality was amazing. BUT, Yesterday, I was listening to my music & my EarPods were working just fine. Today, I pull them out to listen to music & one of the EarPods aren't working anymore. I haven't had any signs of them going out, no static, no shortages, no anything. I've only had them for about 2 months & I am very disappointed. I do not recommend these EarPods for anyone.

    I do not like these as well as the original earbuds

    • Written by Rhonda B from Hyden

    I have trouble keeping these in my ears. Also, the sound coming through sometimes is delayed. I have to unplug and replug to get sound. I do not like that the lightning connector is exclusive to the phone. Bad idea!!!!
    Today I was talking on the phone, using the earbuds, and I dropped the phone while jerking the earbuds from my ears. Ouch!! Then I found that the lightning connector was bent. Broken. I have to replace them for $29.00????? Over priced.

    They fall out of my ears

    • Written by Trent O from Lexington

    I can't use them. They fall out of my ears. Please design a really good set of wired lightning earbuds with interchangeable silicone tips and I'll buy them.

    Do not stay in ears

    • Written by John B from Fort Collins

    The sound of the headphone are really great, but don't let that fool you. These things no matter what you do will not stay in your ears. If you try running with these forget it. These are good if you are sitting absolutely still and are not planning on even moving your head. Almost 100% worthless.

    Great Quality underrated

    • Written by Sebastian M from Riverside

    These ear pods stay in my ear and have great sound quality. Works well with my iPhone seven and is very handy if only I could stop losing them. I am planning on purchasing 3-5 more because I think they are great Quality. One problem is I can't use 'hey siri' with them like I was hoping. Overall great product should buy.

    They were the best pair of headphones I've had from apple by far. That was until my dog got a hold of then and decided it was his new toy �� but these headphones had a great bass, vocals were clear and it was different and neat. I loved them, will be ordering another pair.

    Currently most innovative apple product

    • Written by John S from Chicago

    Anyone giving a bad review of the EarPods must have Spock shaped ears. These are amazing!
    Of course there is a chance you may lose or drop one. It's so worth the risk to be wireless!
    Having cordless earphones that "just work" is amazing! Plug and play!
    The charging case easily fits in a pocket.
    Thanks again Apple.
