    Apple Headphones Review

    • Written by Andy T from Kentwood

    I would say that these EarPods with Lightning Connector aren't long lasting because I brought an iPhone 7 Plus in December of 2017, and it came along with the EarPods. 6 months later, the mic and volume button on the EarPods wasn't working. I wasn't able to turn up or down the volume on my EarPods. I had to lower volume on my phone itself. Now it is nearly a year later, my EarPods is playing music on one side and the other side isn't playing music at all. I would suggest Apple find out why these EarPods break down easily less than a year. I'm still glad my iPhone 7 Plus is still functioning. I'm hoping the AirPods won't break that easily as these EarPods.

    Sounds worse than disposable earbuds on airliners

    • Written by Yun Yung C from Hong Kong

    Flimsy built, very uncomfortable to wear, and extremely poor sound quality. It made everything sound like they were recorded underwater. I can't believe they actually charge money for this garbage.

    Poor quality

    • Written by Mehmet Ali Y from Houston

    They are not for using long time. They can be easily broken in couple months of buying. The bad thing is that because of that lightening connector, you don’t have much other choice, so you keep paying money to apple.

    Broke quickly.

    • Written by Freda W from West Vancouver

    Got these with my new iphone 8 in March. I treat them very well, so they've never gotten wet.

    About a month ago (less then a year later) they started randomly pausing and playing whenever I was listening. I know this is due to a faulty connection, because if I play my phone aloud it doesn't do this and it also seems to happen more often if I jostle the connection point.

    Now one of the headphones has stopped working entirely, and it still turns off and on repeatedly.

    Terrible quality

    • Written by Yoana I from London

    I've had these about 4 months and reading other reviews it seems like a miracle they've lasted this long. The sound quality is terrible and very low. A few days ago they started messing with audio; pausing, stopping and skipping what I was listening to and today the right one just died. Not thrilled about having to use the lightning connector instead either, as I refuse to repurchase these, but who's got a choice?

    Poor Quality

    These headphones drop calls and skip/pause songs on Spotify. This is my third pair. Happens every time. WHY CAN'T I LEARN?!

    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!

    These headphones are trash I brought a second pair of headphones and I’m still having the same problems with the ones I had before. Only one ear working the sound keeps coming on the side headphones and the other plays good. For the price they shouldn’t even cost this much they cheap any way only work good for a couple of months

    Survived the washer & dryer

    • Written by Jennifer H from Eskridge

    I've had my headphones for a little over 2 years, recently my husband borrowed them for lawn care and they got forgotten about in a shirt pocket, they went the the hot wash cycle and the 56 min dryer cycle and SURVIVED!!!! Not only do they look brand new but work like they did before the mishap with the wash. I wouldn't recommend this for cleaning them, but I am completely astounded that they still work. I thought my favorite headphones were a done for. Giving a 5 star rating for performance and for high abuse resistance.

    • Written by Ruth A from Plano

    I came here to prepare to purchase my second pair of these headphones but now that I see a lot of people experienced the same thing as me when their earphones broke too soon I changed my mind. I bought my first pair of these headphones about a month ago and they’re completely broken. About my 5 days ago the right ear piece stopped working and today no sound was emitted at all. I would expect this from a $8 pair of earphones from Walmart not apple headphones. As a matter of fact I have a cheap pair of earphones that I use for my MacBook Air that are so worn the wires are showing, but has worked much longer than these headphones. Granted the sound quality is subpar but they work! I’m truly sad that these don’t work well because these headphones are the only ones that fit in my 7 plus.

    "Not even 1 star" if there is such a rating

    • Written by Master Chan 曾

    i bought this earpods with lighting connector, thinking that it was convenient instead of using an adapter...to my horrific experience it does not recognised all the time, i have to unplug and plug in umpteenth times for it to work. once i even do a reset to make it work. It is really of terrible qualtiy i urge other consumers to buy other brand of wireless ear buds. i felt very disappointed with Apple quality lately. before this my apple pencil does not work after 1 year of use. for such a BRAND - APPLE i reckon is really a let-down.

    They don't last.

    • Written by Marta D from Las rozas

    These are the seconds I buy, and I bought them less than a month ago.
    They are in good condition, but you can't hear them in one earpiece, and you can't hear anything in the other one.
    I do not recommend them in terms of quality-price, since they only work well right out of the box.

    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.

    Two pairs in 8 months

    • Written by Justin S from Toronto

    Whatever method used to test strength, must have been done to someone who never moves. I've gone through two pairs within 8 months because they just lose connection via bending (aka walking with my iPhone in my pocket)
