    Stopped working

    • Written by Alyssa B from Maleny

    The earphones were working fine for a while and then after using them for 4 months they just stopped working. I took good care of them, I only ever really took them to school and there’s no outside damage. I have no clue why they stopped working. I can’t hear the music no matter how loud the volume is. I also used the earphones with another phone to see if my phone was the problem, but still no sound would come out.

    The Breakage!

    • Written by Chris K from Port Talbot

    As an iphone 7 plus user, these are the only earphones i can really use without resorting to amazon for knock offs. This would be fine if they didn’t have a lifetime of about 3 months! I have gone through 5 pairs all ending in me smashing then up with rage after both earbuds stop outputting music. Terrible product and you know this apple!

    Wish I could give 0 stars

    • Written by Gerald C from Alhambra

    Absolutely laughable how cheesy the earpods are. I've gone through at least 4 sets in just over a year. They work fine for a month or two, then one side will go out and then the next. $30 each time for a faulty product. These are obviously engineered to break as you can see the overwhelming 1 star reviews and yet they make no correction. Not to mention there are very few other options out there. I actually like a $10 set of wireless earbuds I got from Target but it's a hassle to have to recharge earphones. I'm officially done with Apple products. I'll ride this phone out and when it's done I'm done as well. It was bad enough they took the headphone jack out so you can't charge your phone while listening without another $30 accessory. You would think a company that wants to keep it's customers happy wouldn't put out a product that gets 90%+ terrible reviews. Worthless and infuriating

    Sound quality dreadful

    • Written by Barry S from Northwich

    Just received my new iPhone XR, complete with wired EarPods that connect through the lightening connector. I have previously used $79 Klipsch ‘in ear’ phones with 3mm jack plug to listen to my mp3 music.
    So I was interested to try these Apple pods and compare them to my previous excellent Klipsch units (now redundant unless I buy a converter). Well to say I was disappointed is an understatement, they are dreadful for music. I am sure they will be fine for taking calls, but not for music.
    Now that Apple have removed the 3mm socket I had hoped the ear pods would be ‘good enough’, unfortunately they are not!

    Broken again

    • Written by Elizabeth F from Melksham

    Bought a pair 9 months ago which broke within a couple of months. Bought a replacement pair 7 months ago which have broken today (right ear has stopped working).

    I use these headphones a lot but I really look after them as well.

    Will look for an alternative.

    Everytime I plug in these headphones, it starts acting up like starting my music, pausing every video I see and etc.
    Apple always tryna make people upgrade into more expensive ones by making the old products horrible, but some of us can't freaking afford expensive AirPods.

    Horrible Quality

    • Written by robert K

    I bought a pair of these because my old ones broke. I paid a full $30 and they stopped working entirely. I then went and bought a second pair, and after a few weeks they would start skipping, pausing, and moving ahead in songs that I’m trying to listen to. For $30 these should be great quality but they’re not. It’s dissapointing that a company could care so little as to actually sell these for $30 when they break so frequently. This is the only reason I’m afraid to buy AirPods. I don’t want to spend almost $200 on a product and it end up doing this.

    Only lasts a few months

    • Written by Jason T from Keller

    I have to buy several pairs of these a year because they go out every few months. I use my earpods a lot to listen to music, audio books, and take phone calls. After a few months they always start glitching out. They will begin randomly pausing or starting my music, or skipping chapters in my book. If this doesn't happen, one side will stop working. They work great when they work. But for me they have a very short lifespan.

    Same problems as reported in other reviews

    • Written by Marco S from London

    When you listen to them with the phone in your pocket, sometimes they stop working. You need to unplug them and plug them back in. After 6 months of light use (i take very good care of them) mine broke. The right earphone stopped working as mentioned in other reviews. Disappointing

    The only reason I’m giving these earphones 1 star is because I had to in order to write the review. These earphones only last a few months (if that) before the wires start to short. For $30 the quality is complete bogus and I feel trapped into buying them since my phone requires the lightning compatibility. I’m really convinced at this point that Apple pays no attention to their reviews. They pay more attention to the quality of the actual phone than the accessories that go with them. Sorry if it seems like I’m rambling but I have never been more annoyed with a product. Long story short, be prepared to dish out $30 every 2 months for these headphones. Don’t be fooled, the sound quality is great when they are brand new, but there is not an ounce of longevity. Good Luck.

    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.

    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.

    I had my earbuds for almost 8 1/2 months and they stayed in good shape until they got smushed in my backpack and the plastic fell off the actual bud. They’re good earbuds in general if you take good care of them. I recommend this product.

    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 just got this new phone for christmas, just barely a month ago, and i got a new pair of ear buds with it. the quality of music always starts out incredible and perfect for me. however, over time, speakers stop working, which makes no sense to me... i take good care of these and keep them wrapped up and put away. it is getting very annoying buying new ear buds ever other month because the speakers blow..
