    Terrible change from the 3.5mm Earpods

    • Written by Shaun D from Greenmount

    Its probably easier for me to write the review in this way.

    What I Like:
    - Sound Produced
    - Fit of the Earpods to my ears
    - The Multiple Functions of the Remote
    - The fact apple gave us an option for Earphones that wasn't just Airpods.

    What I don't Like:
    - Cannot Charge phone at the same time I'm listening to Music or watching a video
    - Remote 9 times out of 10 does not connect - which means you have to unplug the headphones and plug them back in for it to work.
    - When remote does not connect microphone on the Earpods reverts back to phone microphone - very inconvenient when phone is in your pocket riding a bicycle or at the gym and answering a call.
    - Slightest amount of pressure on the lightning connection causes music to pause, this happens to me frequently at the gym when sitting on equipment with phone in my pocket and when I'm on my bicycle.

    Bring back the 3.5mm Audio Jack or make Airpods more affordable!

    I can't believe Apple made this

    • Written by Alireza T from Cupernito

    1. Music will pause automatically sometimes.
    2. When you press start/pause button 1 time to play music, it will launches Siri.
    3. The EarPods cable is very sensitive and thin.
    4. You will hear a noice when changing musics.

    Constantly breaks

    • Written by Ford P from Los Angeles

    I have gone through at least 5 of these earbuds since getting the iPhone 7. They break every month or so and even after getting a brand new pair they skip songs and turn on Siri when I dont intend to. After a couple of weeks they will pause music and then randomly start playing until they completely break and will become unusable. I don't know why they constantly break but Apple needs to figure something out!

    Drains battery

    • Written by Ke'Andra R from Harahan

    I bought these new headphones that connect directly to the charger part on my phone these headphones are draining my battery really fast and now I can't watch a movie and charge my phone at the same time while at work. We need to have options whether we want the old headphones that plug into the headphone jack or the new style. I prefer the old ones.

    Pretty much possesses your phone

    • Written by Catherine Z from Township of Washington

    I only really started to use these headphones on a daily basis since my adaptor (the dongle) broke about a month and a half ago . Once the left ear stopped working about two weeks ago, it has been screwing around with my phone whenever I plug it in. Sometimes with the headphones plugged in, it will suddenly stop and/or play music, even when I'm not listening to anything and in other apps. Other times it will just suddenly turn in voice control and I've had times when I've said nothing that it will call random people on my phone when this happens. Just today, it sped up all the music that I was listening to until it just shorted out. Now everything is playing at a softer level. Not worth buying this for $29

    Do not but if you have small ears

    • Written by Brooke E from West Olive

    I got these when I got my iPhone 7 and I would never recommend them to people. Since I have super small ears these do not fit and they ended up cause me so much pain I wanted to cry the EarPods left me with bruised ears. I never expected this from an apple product.

    right ear stops working after few months

    • Written by Calantha T from Martinez

    I am disappointed with these earpods and expected a lot more from Apple. After a few months of use, the right earbuds have completely stopped working. I have looked up repair solutions but I would be unable to open up the earbud without putting it back in place because of its design. I had expected at least a years worth of use out of these but they only lasted a few months of gentle use. As a loyal Apple customer and with the amount of money I put into Apple products, this is frustrating and I am let down.

    Extremely Disappointing.

    • Written by Sana U from New Malden

    I used my previous ones for complete two years and they worked perfectly but when I bought these which basically came with iPhone 7 Plus, they hardly last for 2 months only. This poor quality was not expected from Apple at all.

    The iPhone 7 has been such a disappointing product... and the headphones that came with it are terrible. Sound quality was average, then one headphone stopped working and now both are gone. Don't buy the iPhone 7 and do not buy these headphones

    There needs to be a significant price reduction... only one headphone fits the iPhone 7 and it's fragile as h... you really want us to pay 29 dollars for these every two months? Such a shame apple has turned away from quality

    Work poorly with an iPhone 7

    • Written by George S from Glen Mills

    Apple lightning headphones do not work reliably enough with my iPhone 7 to consider using them for work phone calls or for running. Unbelievably disappointing!!! I've gone through 3 pairs. Half way through the calls you have to go to speaker phone or the lightning connections never makes a solid connection. You can forget about running with them. Again, it's a shame I loved my iPhone 6 with the old "headphone jack" headphones. AirPods are so poorly reviewed I can't justify the price.

    Easily broken; my third pair in 7 months

    • Written by David C from Anaheim

    I'm fed up with the new lightning connector earpods. I've gone through three pairs since I got the iPhone 7 back in January, and the third pair just died on me. These headphones do not seem to be able to stand up to daily wear and tear, whereas the old 3.5mm connector earpods were usually good for the life of the phone (not to mention the inconsistent inline controls other reviewers have complained about). If Apple insists on sticking with lightning-only headphones in the future, I'm abandoning the iPhone.

    Great sound, but have to replace every two months..

    • Written by zachary M from Seattle

    These headphones are the perfect example of planned obsolescence. Although they do sound great, expect to only have them for three to four months max. Dont know how many I've gone through with my iPhone 6 and 7 in the last couple years but it's unfortunate. One ear will go out after about three months in and then its problems from there. When you're paying 700+ for a phone you would think the classic headphones would last longer than half of a year! We'll keep buying though :/

    These headphone never worked right. Even the adaptor was glitchy when I would try to use other headphones. I want the original back.

    Worst Headphones I've had

    • Written by Erin Y from Jersey City

    If I could give these less than 1 star I would. Seems like a few others have had similar problems. They broke within months, and prior to them finally going they would make siri go crazy, skip songs, stop playing. So frustrating when you spend so much money on a phone/product.

    Broke after a few months

    • Written by Jillian M from Chicago

    Very disappointed that they broke after a few months. The part that connects to the lightening port just snapped off from the the rest of the earpods chord. It looks like this happens a lot. and unfortunately even with the bad review, i'll probably still buy another pair because I'm not sure what choice i have with the iphone 7. bring back the headphone jack on the iphone!

    Anyone else find these earpods to be uncomfortable? They also fall out easily when I am reclining. Do not get me wrong, the sound is good...but...they hurt and won't stay in place. The cheap earbuds from airlines fit my ears better than this style. Apple needs to offer something that will accommodate various ear types. I am very disappointed. Come on, Apple, step up!

    Today I opened my new EarPods. 1.5 hours later, the +/- volume do no work nor do they start/pause my music. Really?! A 1.5 hours later?
