    Replaced 3 in one year !

    • Written by Tala B from London

    The ones I bought with my iPhone 7 lasted almost year and a half and they worked just fine until the right side stopped working. Since then I’ve had to replace them three times and each time it barely lasts 2 months! Everytime it’s the same thing; the right side stops working. I use them frequently but I take good care of them and don’t use them while exercising so that they don’t get wet. And yet they keep breaking. Very disappointing!

    Warning of ELECTRIC SHOCK!

    • Written by Sarah C from Brooklyn

    I got these with my new Iphone X when I upgraded. The first time I used them, the mic didn't work and I could't use them for calls. After a couple of days, I plugged these earphones into my new phone and turned on music. Instead of sound, I received a painful electric shock into my ear canal. Thank g-d I still have my hearing. Worst product ever. Shame on you Apple for monopolizing the market- if you want to do so, please provide good quality products instead of GARBAGE.

    I have to use tape to hold them in my ears

    • Written by Cindy S from Mount Shasta

    I wish they came with a loop that would fit over my ear to hold them in place. They don't fit snugly and if I try to put pressure to make them stay in they are terribly uncomfortable. Then in a few minutes they fall out. The best fix for me is to use medical tape my ears, over the earbuds to keep them in place.
    A word of advice for Apple: not all ear canals are the same. Give your next design some flexibility please!

    No good

    • Written by Keira W from Waterloo

    Got the headphones when I bought my iPhone XS & they lasted 3 months. Within the first month the left side stopped working and then the volume button and microphone shortly after stopped working & now they’ve completely stopped. After reading other peoples reviews, they’re all pretty much the same. Wouldn’t recommend

    Wish I could give a negative # of stars

    • Written by David H from Monticello

    These headphones are simply not comfortable and the cord is not long enough. I prefer the corded, and not the wireless headphones, simply because IMO, and from both feedback and experience, the corded headphones do a better job at drowning out background noise...as I am often on long teleconferences daily.

    The ONLY wired headphones that appear for sale on the Apply website are ridiculously expensive and, based on the customer reviews don't even fit well.

    It kind of feels like Apply changed the port on the newer phones on purpose to do two things a) control the headphone market and simply make more money, but probably more likley b) make it easier and easier to drop the corded ones and instead use wireless.

    I used to be able to go to Target or Walmart and buy a good, value priced pair of mic'ed headphones to use with my IPhone, now since I upgraded to the Xr, that simply is not possible, I have no CHOICE but to buy apple headphones -- which I'm sure anyone who is in business would agree isn't a coincidence.

    Other than that, I love Apple products.

    Overpriced Junk

    • Written by Danielle S from San Diego

    They only lasted for 6 weeks! I’ve bought Walmart headphones for $5 that last 6 months. Never buying these again, what a horrible product.

    Broke within in a couple of months

    • Written by Arfon R from Haydock

    The volume adjustment buttons just don't work at all and occasionally sound does play. I came on here to look for another pair and for this price it is not worth it since it will break in 1 - 2 months.

    Apples standard ear pods

    • Written by David S from Lincoln

    The standard issue ear pods are a joke. You pay upwards of £600 for a decent iPhone and it comes with these pods that won’t even stay in your ears.
    The weight of the hands free and skip track buttons pulls the pods right out of your ear with the slightest of movements. A simple test of these EarPods would have illuminated the problem and the design changed. It’s pretty obvious it’s a weight issue and by spreading it a little more could of helped rather than putting it all on the right hand side (hands free buttons) which pulls out of the ear constantly with the slightest head movent.
    No good for the gym or a bike ride or pretty much anything that involves moving your head.overall a Poor accessory and not tested correctly
    Considering the price tag of these phones you would of exspected a little more from the one main accessory needed to listen to music.

    Unnecessary upgrade and didn’t last more than 6 mos

    • Written by Nicole N from West Orange

    I still don’t understand why the need or want for radically different earphones, but at least I thought the quality would be good. What a joke! At least old earphones were easier to replace.

    Total Trash....

    • Written by Mariana R from Summit

    DO NOT BUY, these headphones are trash and apple should discontinue. They automatically increase the volume by itself and loud beeping happens often for no reason. Very very annoying and you’re not able to get it to stop. I’ve had these 3 weeks in and now only one headphone actually has sound. Don’t waste your money on this product, clearly defective.

    Sound quality is quite bad.

    • Written by Keir C from Southend

    In direct comparison with both the Air Pods and the standard 3.5mm jack Ear Pods, the sound quality of these headphones is terrible.
    They continuously slip out of the lighting port. This port was not designed to be used in conjunction with headphones!
    Do not buy until Apple improve the product.

    Shockingly poor quality

    • Written by Diego M from London

    These came with my iPhone Xs and on the first day of using I noticed that they, essentially, ‘disconnect’ from the iPhone whenever the base of the wire is nudged, even slightly. The quality of these is shockingly bad. Not what you would expect after spending so much money.

    Bad Quality

    • Written by Rosalind H from Southaven

    My son and I both got the iPhone X in July of last year. His earphones stopped working after about 6 weeks. I gave him the pair that came with mine and now those quit working. I would have thought they would have lasted at least a year, but I was wrong.

    One size fits all is BS

    • Written by Dante C from Portland

    honestly i don't know why the shape of these headphones still exist. for my entire life iphone headphones have hurt my ears and i'm sure there a thousands of others who feel this way too. Is it really that difficult to make another style of headphone so that people can actually use your product instead of having ear pains from wearing your terribly designed headphones? a rubber circle apple... they fit everyone's ear as long as there is a hole in their ear.

    Headphones That Shock You

    • Written by Morgan T from Spruce grove

    These headphone are absolutely terrible for working out. When running on the treadmill at the gym the headphones shock you in the ears multiple times and it its painful and annoying. The first time used these at the gym I was so upset to find out I had just spent $40.00 on a pair of headphones that shocks me. Very disappointed I expected better quality from apple.

    Third time is not the charm!!

    • Written by Terri C from Arlington

    This is my third pair of Ear Pods with the Lightning Connector and not including the ones my daughter gave to me. These things are not cheap at $29.99 a pop but I need them to be hands free and cannot afford to get the AirPods. The EarPods have you make you sound distorted that is if the other party can even hear you at all, Apple needs to do better point blank! The EarPods go in and out, there's static sometimes, it's horrible. I cannot keep buying these and returning them only to get the same results.
