    Lightning earpods

    I use these with my iPhone 7 plus and find they are very comfortable and the sound is very crisp and clear they are certainly the best standard haedphones that come with a phone.

    People who rated 3 stars in below are clueless. They're the same sound and style as the old earpods. They don't sound different they sound the exact same and these are better than buying $100 beats headphones with the same good sound quality. Open your eyes and ears people.

    My dad has the old earpods and these actually sound better. You can feel the bass but not in an annoying tickle your ear way. Wish i could give it a 5 star but if i could get this quality without the lighting connector so i can use it on my laptop or nintendo that would be great. Was going to trade them in for the headphone connector but the quality wasn't worth it. LOVE THE NEW EARPODS GOOD JOB APPLE

    Apples Needs to Change the Design of Their Earbuds

    Just like every other pair of pair Apple earbuds that I've owned these do not fit into my ears and they continue to fall out with the slightest movement. I wish they'd consider changing the design of the earbuds. If this isn't a concern for you then I recommend them because the sound quality is actually good.

    Great sund but bad durability

    The quality of the sounds on these headphones are great, I can clearly hear all the low mid and high frequencies. They sound great but don't last long at all! I've had to go through three pairs of these things over the past three months. I listen to my music pretty loudly but the problem is that high volumes can damage the headphones and you can tell if only one of the sides is working. Very annoying having to listen to my music with only one side playing and the other busted. And I keep having to replace them pretty much EVERY month which is expensive!!! Anyone else having this same problem?

    Way better than the original EarPods

    Purchased these lightning EarPods just out of curiosity and to see how they'd compare to the original EarPods. Let me tell you, they sound amazing! Sound is so clear and crisp, bass is good. Will definitely purchase more pairs.

    Same Quality, Less Perks

    Quality is perfectly fine. I don't notice a difference between the old earpods. One huge problem with these is the lack of case! I used to carry my old earpods in my purse and my backpack. The old case was small, easy to use, and stylish. What was the point of getting rid of the case for these new earpods?? They don't even fit in my old case, so now they get tangled up in my bag, and it takes me forever to untangle the knots when I want to use them! Apple: why do you always have to fix things that aren't broken, and remove things that people use????

    Simply awful

    and a continued embarrassment to Apple, which stubbornly persists with a design that does not fit -- most surveys that I've seen -- 40% of users, including me. They continually fall out. Apple at its infuriating worst.

    Much Better Than I Anticipated

    I had tried the EarPods before and frankly decided they were not worth the effort it took to keep them in my ears. When I got a new iPhone 7 Plus, I decided to try again, mainly to see if I would be willing to try the forthcoming wireless model. Things have changed since the last time I tried the earbuds mainly vastly superior audio output from the iPhone 7 Plus (the stereo speakers are amazingly good) and a digital signal but these are good enough that I have started using the EarPods with Lightning Connector regularly in spite of the fact they still tend to fall out of my ears (thus 4 instead of 5 stars).

    In fact they are good enough I am going to trust Tim Cook's word that the wireless EarBuds don't fall out because there is no wire to pull them out and go for the wireless version when they are released.

    Sounds the Same

    I'm not hearing a difference. You would think they would have improved the audio quality to justify removing the aux jack.

    The new earbud shape is awful. They are so big and do not fit properly into my ears. After five minutes they became so painful I had to take them out. Definitely not designed for smaller ears.

    Came with the iPhone 7

    I personally love these earphones, the sound is crisp and clear! I have tried a wide range of headphones before and believe that this is one of the best! ❤️

    Better Sound Quality

    These EarPods sound more crisp and have a deeper bass than the 3.5mm EarPods. I will recommend the lighting EarPods over the 3.5mm EarPods. The only thing I don't like about the lighting EarPods is that it does NOT come with a case. I liked the case because it kept my EarPods from getting tangled and dirty.

    Similar - less comfortable.

    These new lightning EarPods are similar in most ways to the old, but the lightning position is uncomfortable while walking, as the cord is more susceptible to being pulled; I worry about damaging the internal port and eventuallly being unable to charge my device. It's obvious that the Air Pods that are being sold now are clearly superior.

    New headphones

    Was very easy with them being new and not wanting to replace them and broke the very first day I used them and got them out within 3 hours the right headphone went out. Very disappointed and don't want to replace them just to break them again after a gentle use.

    Adequate sound but ultimately a downgrade

    music will randomly pause due to connection being lost in your pocket.

    What's not to like people?

    I am a musician with a pretty good ear for sound and quality. Of course they are not pro studio headphones but they blow every other pair of earbuds out of the water for the price. Stereo sound and as comfortable as Apple earbuds have always been. I've done back to back comparisons with the old 3.5 mm headphones and there is a measurable difference. It's 2016 and it's about time someone moves beyond the 3.5mm analog jack. Apple is always the first company to move things forward in tech. If you want an outdated 3.5 mm jack buy an android handset.

    Eh, these aren't great

    They sound okay, they feel kind of cheap. The cord doesn't feel as nice as Apple earphones of the past (even last year...).

    It's great they work with my new iPhone 7, but you know what else they work with? ... ... Nothing. I'm throwing these away and just buying a case of Lightning to 3.5mm adapters. I was using 1 set of nice earphones with my iPhone 6 and my laptop, Mac MINI, and my iPod I still use when I'm jogging. I liked having 1 good set to have for music with my phone while I'm at work, then switch it over to my laptop for an e-meeting, then switch back later. But there's no adapter to make lightning earphones with with a 3.5mm jack. So if I use these, then I also have to keep a 3.5 set for my computer.

    So far, this was a dumb change. I like Apple simplicity. But as Albert Einstein said, and I paraphrase I'm sure, "things should be as simple as possible, and no simpler." Apple has attempted something too simple. Give me back my headphone jack so I can carry fewer things around with me and not have to juggle which things plugs into which device. They've actual hurt universality and simplicity by eliminating the headphone jack and making these lightning earphones.

    Extreme poor quality

    Awful quality of materials is not even the same level of quality as old Earpods. Cable too thin and bad material, seems cheep product and not made by Apple.
