    Although I am overall thoroughly impressed by the quality of sound that these earphones produce, they are not durable at all. I use my earphones daily, however, they will only last me a couple of months before either one earphone stops working or they have blown. This is a great inconvenience for me because it means that every 2-3 months I am having to spend nearly £30 on earphones.

    Don't waste your time

    The earphones were working really good. However, after a month or so they stopped working as good. My volume control doesn't even work, and I barely use it. I may have used it maybe all of 6 times total.

    Received a defective item

    The play button/volume control of the headphones did not work. It is not an issue with my phone as my other pair of EarPods work. Now I have to go through the hassle of returning/replacing them and hoping the next pair works

    I have purchased over 6 pairs of headphones. I am not hard them nor do I use them frequently. They just stop working. It starts with the remote volume not working and then usually one earbud goes out. They are poorly made and expensive for what you get. Apple, you should be embarrassed about the qualify of your headphones.

    I love these headphones and have been using them since I got an iPhone 5s in 2014, however lately their quality seems to have declined. I had my first pair for over a year with no problems until I lost them. I have bought multiple pairs since, and all of them have lost sound in the left ear within a couple of months. These headphones have the best sound quality by far for affordable headphones that I have tried, but the sound loss really is a problem and diminishes their value a lot.

    Great Ear Phones

    I have been using my earphones since I received my first i Pod in 2011 and second in 2013. I have had no trouble. I love the great sound and use mine all of the time. I want bass when I listen to music, and that is what I get on mine. I also listen to books on Audible, so it makes those sound great as well. The only other ear phones I have used were my Bose, which actually died in one ear. I have never had to replace my Apple earphones. I hope these continue working, but if not I will order again!

    Worst thing apple has ever made!

    I've bought this thing 2times and both of them were very fragile and easily broken it always starts with the mic not working then the left earpod suddenly goes silent. But don't get me wrong it has good sound quality but don't ever be stupid like i was and buy this if the one with ur iphone brokes.

    Bought 4 different pairs each pair broke within a month.

    These are the worst quality headphones I've ever purchased, I've tried 4 times and no matter how careful I was with them they ended up breaking in one way or another. All 4 stopped working and 3 of them the wire was so fragile that it tore. Don't bother spending money on these, even if they were free they wouldn't be worth it.

    Poor design

    This ranks up there with the original iMac’s hockey puck mouse for worst design. All form, no function. The smooth, slippery plastic buds sit loosely in the ear. They fall right out with the slightest head motion. How this overpriced garbage makes it past the testing stage is beyond me, except to disappoint you so much that you’re forced to consider buying their more expensive in-ear buds.

    As an iPhone user I have owned many pairs of these headphones. Been through pairs of these that came with my iPod and my iPhones over the years, I've been gifted the headphones alone and have purchased the headphones alone, and they don't last. I take great care of them, have no problem with them fitting my ear like a lot of people, but either the left or right ear piece alway stops working, or I have issues with the portion that connects to the iPhone/ipod. Just purchased a new pair LAST MONTH and the sounds has started cutting out I have to hold the cord at the plug in a certain spot to get audio. Its not frayed or torn externally, and i always pull my headphones out of my phone from the base never tug the cord. I could've picked up a cheap pair and had longer use. Disappointed.

    Great sound quality

    I went into an Apple Store a few days ago to get some headphones and I saw these, I'd seen them online before but I wasn't sure if it was worth the $30 to get some earbuds that come for free with an iPhone. I was definitely wrong, these earbuds might have the best sound quality of anything I've used and I've encountered no problems so far. Worth every cent.

    Best EarPods for the price

    Not that I want to jinx myself but my EarPods lasted me for 2 years before I lost them (argh) even though I don't take good care of them. Looking at how varied the reviews are about the durability, I'd say that you should purchase them if you have good luck with Apple products. My dad is not a fan of Apple, but even he admitted that they were great so I think the EarPods are really worth the purchase.

    Cord breaks up within months

    Never buy these headphones. The cords are so tangible that the ends of the cords near the jack just tears up within few months. When walked into the Apple store, they wouldn't give me the replacement and the reason they gave is warranty does not cover physical damage (yes, they said this for headphones). What kind of company will make a headphone that does not even have withstand regular wear and tear for at least a year? I have used several headphones and this is not my first one. I have been using all the headphones in the same way. I never had issues with any other headphone other than Apple's. And finally, I was forced to shell out money and buy new headphones as no other headphones are compatible with iPhone.
