    Kinda disappointed...

    • Written by Melita H from westland

    I got these headphones with my new IPhone, and without reason, they broke within 3 months of owning them. However, the sound quality was quite great while they still worked. The right side will no longer provide sound, but the microphone/control thing still works. Now only the left side will produce sound.

    The sound quality to me is good but the only problem is that the entry jack breaks way to easily. I'm about to buy a third pair in less than a year.

    kinda useless

    • Written by Jenny L from Boston

    I got an iPhone 7+ and it took me a week to realized that this ear pods will not work on my MacBook. Seriously? I have to buy two different headphones. Does Apple even think carefully before changing their products? Please make it more convenient for your customer.

    Just ok

    • Written by Brittany W from Canton

    I like the apple earbuds because they fit well in my ear and I like the built in mic. However, they don't last for more than a year and that's ridiculous. Sound quality started to get bad, then the mic stopped working, and now the right earbud doesn't work at all. So just like Apple wants, I know have to buy another pair.

    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

    Same Quality, Less Perks

    • Written by Courtney Z from Green Bay

    Quality is perfectly fine. I don't notice a difference between the old earpods. One huge problem with these is the lack of case! I used to carry my old earpods in my purse and my backpack. The old case was small, easy to use, and stylish. What was the point of getting rid of the case for these new earpods?? They don't even fit in my old case, so now they get tangled up in my bag, and it takes me forever to untangle the knots when I want to use them! Apple: why do you always have to fix things that aren't broken, and remove things that people use????

    Great product, but...

    • Written by Frederick D from Ontario

    I've had and tried to use this product occasionally since they were introduced. They have excellent sound and noise cancellation for my ears and I love the overall design. I haven't had any issues with distortion or failure. The ONLY problem I have is that they easily fall out of my ears due to the slick plastic body material used. If Apple could use the same physical design and combine it with a non-skid material while maintaining the price point, then I would need to search any further for earphones period.

    Disappointed that my EarPods with the Lightning Connector broke within six months; I take good care of my headphones and hate the fact that Apple forces its customers to purchase either these fragile headphones or the AirPods, which I think are too expensive. The sound quality is decent for both sets, but for 30$ or more, you can easily find headphones with better quality that I can no longer use with the iPhone 7's connector.

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

    • Written by Kevin H from Los Angeles

    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.)

    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.

    They’re okay I guess

    • Written by Paige D from Mansfield

    Before I get into actually stating the problem with these, I’d like to say something positive about these. Contrary to all the reviews I’m seeing on the fact that one side stopped working, my earbuds didn’t have this problem until my dog literally pawed at my face and ripped my earbuds out of my phone. I’m not gonna lie, I’m extremely rough with earbuds and I break them within weeks, but these are the only ones that lasted me through months. The sound quality is great, and it’s great for ignoring people. The problem I have with these is the fact that they DO break eventually, but at least I won’t have to buy new ones for a while.

    i guess it depends on luck

    • Written by Martha D from New Rochelle

    i got the iPhone 7 when it first came out, around December and the earpods still work up to today, and its been a bit over 2 years. however, i bought a new phone and the earpods that came with it don't really work anymore, the wire is starting to rip, and its been about a month. so I guess it just depends on whether you're lucky to get good ones or not

    I did like them but they ended up breaking within 6 or 7 mounts.. I’m seeing reviews of other people’s ones lasting up to 2 years but I don’t know if you should believe them. It’s up to you if you want to buy these but I think AirPods would be better if your looking for longer lasting earphones.

    Great but break

    • Written by Jake F from Commerce

    I love the apple head phones and always have the fit perfect for me. I have heard some people complain about the fit, so that just depends on you. One thing that is awful about this product is the durability the break so often and they are so expensive to replace. Love them but hate them

    Great Style... but

    • Written by Sophia J from Leesburg

    When I got iPhone 8 Plus, I was a little disappointed to learn that the iPhone had no actual headphone jack. But, since it came with special EarPods, I thought it was no big deal. I used them many times, and enjoyed them throughout. I had no problem with them at all until, one month after I received them, the right ear bud wasn’t working. I was disappointed and confused, because the exterior looked fine and there was nothing visibly wrong with them. Besides that, the design is good and not too bulky.

    didn't last that long...

    • Written by Erina F from Wexford

    I've had my original pair from buying my iPhone for about a year. But, maybe around four months ago (about 8 months old), the entire right earbud along with the volume controller and mic stopped working. I'm relying on my left earbud for sound. I guess it lasted long enough, but I wish it would've lasted wayy longer.

    Really Uncomfortable...

    • Written by Delia Z from Siler City

    I will start off with saying that they are great when it comes to Sound. I really like that I can hear my music/videos without any problem. My Only issue is that they claim to be more comfortable then all other headphones based on their "research" of the Geometry of the Ear. I can assure you they are the most painful headphones that I have ever worn. I love Apple's products, but the headphones cause me so much pain after just 5 mins of using. Plus they are constantly falling our my ears when I go running. Who knows, I might just have weird ears. :)
