    Apple Ear Plugs

    I really love my apple ear plugs; they are amazing. The music is very crisp and clear. They are just as good as beats and cheaper too!

    Good but not very durable

    The sound of these is very good compared to other earpieces I've owned, and I really like the remote control. I haven't found the same functionality/quality for this price.

    The only downside is they're not very durable. I use them on a daily basis, and they last a little over a year (I'm on my 4th pair now). Often one side just stops working, or the wire breaks and volume cuts out if you bend it.

    best non in-ear earbuds...

    They don't sound good. Perhaps not many people realize that but any decent pair of headphones will sound better than this. But I like them because I don't need to stick them inside my ear.

    I always buy these earphones, the last time I bought some was about 2 or 3 years ago. The mic works great and they fit perfectly into my ears. The only reason I'm buying another pair is because my chihuahua decided to chew on them and now the left one doesn't work. But these never fail to impress me, I love them! Best earphones by far!

    They just don't last long

    I keep buying them because they have good sound and they stay in my ears; but... invariably, either the controller and/or the input plug wears out within 3 months. Granted, I do listen to my books on my iPod most the day and I'm pausing and adjusting the volume on the controller a lot. I don't, however, pull the input plug out very often and that becomes dysfunctional regardless. I do test the earbuds with my iphone when they start getting wonky on my ipod and get the same poor results. All I can say, they are not made to last.

    As a high school student I use these headphone almost everyday. However I just got given a rarely used new pair from a friend and as soon as I left them in my locker for one hour they melted and the ear piece slit into two pieces. I love hear headphones and I am really disappointed with how they broke.

    Survived washer and dryer

    I have 2 pairs of EarPods. One pair has been working well for a couple of years now. The other, newer pair recently went through a washing machine and dryer in my coat pocket. I was very sad when I discovered that they had been washed, but I let them dry out for a couple days and they still work. I haven't had any problems with EarPods.

    Great until useless

    They work as a charm for a few months, and then one of the earphones just stops working (with me was the left side).
    Thought I was just unlucky so I was ready to buy new ones, until I read the reviews and found out this is quite a common issue.

    Not really interested in throwing away $30 so will not be buying another one for a long time. I can definitely find better built headphones for the same price on Amazon.

    Will get stuck and make your iPhone fall

    The headphone cable will cause aggravation with its ability to tangle and get stuck on knobs and just about anything. This headphone has caused my iPhone to fall multiple times. Not worth the hassle.

    Most Durable EarBuds I Ever Owned!

    These earbuds have been through a lot of use for me and I couldn’t live without them. Some people said that their left earbud just stopped working after about a month of use. I had a similar issue when my left earbud got severely quiet to the point where I couldn’t hear anything. I found this occurs because the vibrations for the audio softens your earwax which can seep into the speaker, muffling the sound. A simple fix for this issue I found is to scrub the speaker part of the earbud with rubbing alcohol or a nail polish remover. Afterwards my earbuds sounded like brand new. I also accidentally put the earbuds in the clothes washer, when I found them, I immediately put them in rice. After a few hours I tried them and the bass in the left earbud was gone. This bothered me but I kept using them and after about two days the bass mysteriously came back. They still sound like they did when I bought them. These will forever be my favorite earbuds.

    Good...until they inevitably break

    These headphones are very good at first, but every pair I've owned has eventually stopped working on one or both sides and only worked when positioned in a specific way. I treat my belongings very well but these just don't seem to last. Apple needs to fix these weak headphones.

    Highly Recommend

    I'm shocked these don't have better ratings. For the price point and the clarity of them, they're great! I use them constantly during phone calls and people say they're very clear. If you listen to music or make calls on your cell often while traveling, I encourage you to go get you a pair!

    These EarPods are just amazing, the quality of sound is just astonishing. At first I thought that these will not stay in my ears properly, but once tried on, omg its like a never ending bond that connected me to these EarPods also as it turns out they sit in my ears with no problem and to add to that their so comfortable. I cant live without them. Very much recomended.

    Hard to Kill

    I lost a set of my EarPods in the fall and found them in the early spring frozen into a snow bank where they had spent the past several months. They had faced the full brunt of one of Canada's most brutal winters along with the moisture and frigid temperatures that went along with it. To my surprise they still work and fit perfectly. Yes, there is better sound quality out there, but these are excellent 'unkillable' headphones.

    Good sound quality, never lasts

    These are the best earbuds I've found in terms of sound quality and being the most comfortable to wear. That's where the good points end. The quality of how the earbuds are actually made is absolutely terrible. I've had to replace them more times than I can count. Very rarely will they last more than a few months before they randomly stop working for no reason (usually starting with the left ear). I just had to order yet another replacement and after these inevitably stop working like the rest, I think I'm going to go back to trying to find a different pair from another company. It started as a mild annoyance but it's at the point where I just feel like I'm throwing money away every time I need yet another replacement.

    No plastic travel case

    Since I just got them, I can't speak to the longevity and durability of them but I can say they sound MUCH better than the old apple earbuds I was using. I am docking them one star because they arrived in a cardboard box without the hard plastic storage case that comes with the set included in your new phone box.

    Last more than 5 years

    I just wanna say that my headphone was came with my iPhone 4s and now it has been more than 5 years and it still works like new. Now the cable is almost broke due to some accidentally reason, I just placed 2 new orders or this. The sound is great and my ears can breath with it not like those in-ear type. Just Love it ! Hope these 2 new babies can work as good as before.

    Awesome sound quality but poor material quality

    One of the best sound quality earphone i had. Easy to clean the wire with alcohol. I had to get used to the product shape, in the beginning it cause pain on ear after couple hours of use, than you get used to it and don't cause pain anymore. The audio channels is reversed/swapped (I can swap it on OSX, but not in iPodShuffle). The right channel started to malfunction due to faulty wiring after 2 years.
