    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

    Faulty

    • Written by Baby G from Phoenix

    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.

    Earphones

    • Written by VIVIAN G from OAK PARK

    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.

    It is so big that hurts my ears

    • Written by Camila A from Vancouver

    The quality is great, but It is so big that hurts my ears. Apple should work on a smaller option.

    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.

    One of them broke after about 3 months of having them.

    • Written by Isobel R from Cardiff

    I either want a refund or a new pair because I’ve treated this pair of earphones the best i possibly could and the right ear stopped working after only having it for three months after buying the iPhone 8 Plus for Christmas. Furious.

    So annoying

    • Written by Bryan C from Guildford

    Literally break so easily I have to get a new pair so often and it’s annoying. Yes they have good sound but such bad quality like you’d think being a multi billion dollar company they’d be able to produce long lasting earphones...

    I honestly wish I could rate these 0 stars

    • Written by Mariah M from Los Angeles

    If you live in a place that's NOT Los Angeles, like Santa Cruz for example, you might as well not listen to music through earpods ever again. Nothing connects. Seriously. Nothing. I have gotten more stressed out trying to listen to music when music is supposed to be something that relaxes you. At this point I want to hang myself with these lightning earpods JUST so that I can get an actual use out of them. Because they are BRAND NEW. And I've only used them 3 times over the course of 2 weeks because it never connects.

    Terrible, needs constant replacing

    • Written by Upuli D from Gainesville

    For the cost, it's absurd how often they need to be replaced. After just 3 or so months, they tangle really easily (the texture of the cords seems to change in this time from sleek to a weird restrictive rubber feeling) and they malfunction by stopping and starting my music out of no where, turning on siri when i didn't ask for it, and the button on the right malfunctioning even though I only use these while walking around campus/studying.

    Super disappointed.
