    Worst headphones don’t get

    • Written by Rueben H from North platte

    These are the worst headphones ever. Not worth 30 dollar also. The old ones were better and they didn’t fall apart

    Lasted a matter of months

    • Written by Ruby K from Cheshire

    I had the problem of my music randomly stopping, pausing, changing songs with about 3 sets of the old style headphones. I hoped Apple had fixed the problem with this new design - however I was wrong and they have lasted a matter of months! I can't use them at all now! Annoyingly, the change from the traditional AUX headphones means I can't just buy any headphones in the shop whilst I wait for a new pair. Really disappointed with Apple.

    Doesn’t Last Long

    • Written by Symone B from Pembroke Pines

    I wish Apple would work on these because I constantly have to keep on buying new ones, just about every other month. This is honestly contributing to me thinking about switching over to Samsung. Please fix this!

    Earpods Lightening connection getting disconnected frequently.

    • Written by sunil K from porur

    This is a very serious hardware issue that apple must fix as soon as possible, before its too late. i listen to music while riding my bicycle, and this lightening connetor earpods get disconnected for every 2 min or 3 . If apple is not giving a sturdy earpods which is very basic right of any iphone user whats the point in spending so much for an iphone. very much dissappointed with its lightening connector earpods weak design and purposeless removal of standard headphone audio jack port from iphone7 onwards therby forcing and leaving iphone consumers to suffer their fate with these useless unsturdy weak lightening connector earpods

    Note : No complaint with Audio quality , But what to do with Audio quality if its not able to reach the Ears.

    Inferior to 3.5 mm headphone jack

    • Written by Gijs M from Tucson

    I (accidently) bought these to replace the headphones for my iphone 5s.
    Initially I thought they were ok, audio quality and basic functionality is the same.
    However, I discovered a few downsides:

    - I can't plug them in to my laptop
    - can't charge your phone and listen to music at the same time. I need to carry a separate set of headphones when I'm traveling long distance.
    - often disconnects when listening to audio, or remote stops working and I have to replug the cable
    - spuriously pauses and skips tracks
    - less durable, they lasted only 6 months while my previous headphones lasted a year.

    So I'm switching back to the 3.5mm headphone jack for now.
    Unless I find some really good bluetooth earpieces, I don't see how I'm going to upgrade my phone.

    In a span of 3 months

    • Written by Andrea R from san lorenzo

    This is disapponting because it dies every three months! I've had my 3rd pair now and I wasted a lot of money on this. I always take good care of my headphones but for 3 months one of the earpods dies out! Please make better quality and something that's worth the money and can last a long time.

    Lightning connector needs improvement

    • Written by James H from WALNUT

    I go through about one headset every two weeks because the phone is in my pocket or the cat eats the cord. I can't blame Apple for the cat chewing the cord, yet. The metal connection for iPhone 7 is really weak. I am an average size person and it snaps like a toothpick at the least amount of pressure. The cord is protected by a case and it still breaks leaving the lightning connector inside the phone. I will admit that only Apple headsets work for any amount of time and sound great. I know the element needed to make the connector stronger, add it to your lightning adaptor if interested and voila no breakage for months or years not days.

    Very short product life

    • Written by AYHAN A from Washington

    Three months after, one side stopped working. It seems Apple are banking on people buying this accessory over and over again so that we can continue using our expensive Iphones. Apple people, you better address this if you want to hold on to your phone sales.

    Cheaply made

    • Written by Maddy P from Marshville

    These earbuds sound so good, the audio is amazing but I do not recommend them because they are cheaply made. I bought my third pair of these cause my other ones broke and I didn’t have them for maybe two weeks and they broke in one ear. I’m really disappointed cause I just lost 30 dollars. DO NOT BUY THESE!

    EarPods are Garbage

    • Written by Michelle B from Chandler

    Outside of the sound which isn't great (but I don't have high expectations for on earbuds that come with my phone), these EarPods are uncomfortable and don't stay in your ears even when holding your head still. If you're looking at purchasing these separately, then you've likely lost or damaged the ones that came with your iPhone. Do yourself a favor and buy the headphone to lightning jack converter and get a different, non-Apple set of earbuds or get wireless headphones and don't waste your money on these.

    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.

    Not worth the money

    • Written by Koby B from Cambridge

    I got the original ones with my iPhone X and after couple of months one ear stopped working and the cable connection was also bad. I started using the adapter with my old earphones, but then after few weeks the adapter stopped working. This is defiantly not worth your money!
    Since Apple changed the connector for the earphones you are ought to use their earphones or their adapter, which are both expensive and low quality. DON'T BUY!

    Stopped Working After A SINGLE DAY

    • Written by Tanner E from Dayton

    These things frankly don’t deserve the single star I gave. These were $30 and after a single day of using them while walking to class and sitting in my dorm, they simply stopped working. Even my old pair that came with my phone that, after at least a few months, has one ear not functioning, have at least some sound coming from them. Other reviews have complained about comfort and having them fall out often, which are both valid complaints, since these are not earbuds to be used while doing anything more rigorous than walking. Possibly the only redeemable quality of these is that they have the connector necessary to be used with iPhones, which is only an issue because Apple wants to sell expensive adapters. Regardless, you are much better off buying one of those adapters and using a cheap, $5 set of earbuds. Those will undoubtedly have much better quality, and won’t break after just one day.

    So frustrating! Don’t buy these!

    • Written by Luisa W from london

    Do not buy these headphones! I’ve gone through two pairs in the past 6 months, and they broke in exactly the same way.
    The headphones would start randomly interfering with the pause, play and volume controls on music/podcasts and then the left ear would completely stop working. The headphones were only ever kept in a light bag and it can’t be a coincidence they broke in the same way twice. You’d be better off saving some money and buying a fake on eBay, it would probably last longer! Really disappointed, I got these with my new iPhone and when you pay a fortune for the phone you expect to get headphones with a shelf life longer than 3 months.

    Zero stars if I could.

    • Written by Yajaira T from Chicago

    Smh I bought my phone In November and I just took my earphones out of the box like 3 weeks ago & now I can’t hear anything out of them. These were defective. It’s not fair that I have to buy new ones if the pair that came in the box were defective. I’ve been buying apple devices for a long time and this had never happened.

    Really unfortunate because I really like Apple headphones but I have had one ear piece just stop working on TWO pairs within 3 months. These are WAY too expensive to have this happen this often. Really disappointed.

    These headphones don’t work well enough or last nearly long enough without falling apart to warrant spending $30 on them.
