    I just lost my EarPods and bought new, cheaper ones and this made me realize how good EarPods were :(

    Always break

    I was constantly buying the Apple EarPods and they are not worth the price. They may fit perfectly in your ear but the built quality is terrible. The earphones end up Aging and the sound isn’t clear or the device itself breaks. Invest in AirPods or anything much better.

    Best I’ve Tried

    I’ve tried many different styles and brands of earbuds because I have cats that tend to chew the cords. Out of all the kinds I’ve tried, Apple EarPods are the bes. They don’t eventually stop working the way most earbuds do. The sound quality is always good, and the shape of the EarPods are perfect for my ears. I only wish that these were more affordable!

    Great design, low build quality

    These used to be great, and if you still have a paid from iphone 5 etc they probably still work, if you buy them now however you'll be a regular at the apple store replacing them under warranty until that runs out then you'll be buying a new pair. Less reliable than something from the $1 store.

    Models with the old build quality were the best headphones i ever owned
    Models with current build quality are the worst I've ever owned.

    Perfect fit but awful durability

    This is the first time I've complained about an Apple product. I used to use cheap earphones that never gave me any issues, but then these beautifully fitting EarPods arrive. But without fail I need to call for a replacement or buy a new pair. I'm sure I've purchased nearly 10 pairs over the last couple of years, spending around '£300 in the process.

    Good for a while, but DO NOT LAST

    I got these about 7 months ago (I've gone through 4 pairs in 2-3 years) and for the first few months, they worked fine. About 2 months in, I pulled them a little too hard and the covering above the plastic where the cord splits into two ripped, revealing the wires. I admit this was mostly my fault, but still, I'd expect them to be at least a bit more resistant, especially for $30 earbuds. I didn't notice a difference in performace for another few months when sound started bleeding out of both buds, even at lower volumes, and most recently, within a week, the right bud as well as the volume/mic controls went inactive, for no apparent reason. This seems to be a trend, because that exact issue occured with my previous two earpods. I'm extremely dissatisfied, especially coming from such a premium company like Apple.

    Awesome headphones

    I just ordered a new pair of these today after my last pair, which came with a phone I got in 2015, broke. Obviously I haven’t received the new ones yet, but based on my previous pair, these headphones are great. The sound quality of these headphones is much better than any others that I’ve tried, and they are incredibly durable since this is the first time I’ve had to buy a new pair, and I’m not very gentle with my headphones. I’d recommend these to anyone needing headphones for a 3.5mm jack.

    Earpods

    Uncomfortable, and don’t stay in your ear. Time to make some buds with adjustable sizes.

    Durable

    I have totally underestimated these EarPods , the sound quality provided is pretty good considering that they seem extremely basic. But what I love most about these is how durable they are, I have left my EarPods in pockets of my clothes and have washed them TWICE already and they’ve still continued to work for me flawlessly. They’re basic and do the job, but for me they’re by far the best, good enough to take time out of my busy schedule to write a good review on them, I would highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for simple but very good EarPods!

    Bought about 5 pairs in total

    Absolutely disgraceful. I’ve bought about 5 pairs in total and 3 of the 5 times, it’s due to the faulty wiring that connects the jack to the earphones themselves. The other 2 times, the left EarPod has stopped working for no apparent reason. I treated all of them with care.
    You need to put more effort into the EarPods.

    Good audio quality, but short lifespan

    I've always liked the audio quality of Apple EarPods, both the speakers and the mic, but they consistently don't last very long, I'd say a year plus/minus. I've gone through probably 4-5 sets over the last 5 years, and I will never buy another pair again. I had a pair of Sony earbuds that lasted over 10 years, and they were actually a bit cheaper than the Apple EarPods. I'd give them 4 stars for audio/mic sound quality, but 1/2 star for longevity.

    really good quality

    It is a really good product, although it shows you how to skip and rewind it is very difficult to do so. Also, I lose these things like once every few months if I am not careful. Apple should incorporate "find my earphone" because I am sick and tired of losing it.

    horrible.

    they're absolutely horrible, same with the other lightning cord ones. i've gone through so many pairs over the past few years and i've finally decided to get the airpods because i can't handle my headphones breaking every few months. it pauses and unpauses my music all the time, skips songs, fast forwards them, enables siri/voice control it's just completely horrible and beyond aggravating when you're trying to listen to your favourite songs. they also fall out of your ears very easily. i'll give the airpods a shot and if those end up doing the same thing then i just won't be purchasing headphones by apple at all.

    Substandard Apple product

    Terrbile fit, useless when on the move. No idea why Apple keeps making these earphones.

    Great Sound But DON'T LAST!

    I've bought about 6 pairs of these earbuds. I like the sound, and I like the fit. However, they DO NOT last. The connection point where the cord meets the jack always goes bad and shorts. Always. It's a design flaw. Even with the gentlest use and care. I've mentioned this to Apple store employees. They're used to it. And they will not replace them - they always point out the limited warranty. I truly believe Apple designed them this way to increase replacement revenue. At some point, the audio will cut out for one side of your earbuds. Then both. Along the way, it will short in such a way as to randomly trigger Siri, or hang up on callers. What a shame, because I like the fit and sound of these - but the short life is unacceptable. The fact that Apple has sold millions of these and should be well aware of this weakness makes me question Apple. One other thing - sure, I could switch to a lightning jack adapter - but you know what the problem with that is? You can't charge your phone and use it at the same time. If you're a business user, that is a big problem.

    Quality very poor -DONT BUY GO ELSEWHERE

    I can't believe I paid 29.00 for these. When I got a pair with my iPhone they were much better quality but I lost these. These have cheap cable, the plug keeps coming lose from the iPad socket which then makes the video buffer and makes clicking noises in my ear. I have only had these earphones one day. Please don't buy and take heed of the reviews which I stupidly did not and don't buy them. You get get better quality and for a cheaper prices if you shop elsewhere. APPLE FIX UP YOU ARE RIPPING PEOPLE OFF CHARGING THIS AMOUNT FOR THESE EAR PHONES!

    Worth the money - if you get them free with another device

    They are hard and uncomfortable and don't block any external sounds so useless for anything other than silent environments

    Quite possibly the WORST headphones I've had

    Not only are these at least $10 more than similar bad quality headphones, but these have 0 bass and make music sound tinny. Not to mention they fall out if you remotely touch the cord. Would not buy again.
