    Horrible lasted 3 months

    I recently got the iPhone 8plus. ... was excited to use these new EarPods but they only lasted 3 months. The sound keeps going out on the left bud and it gets annoying when I’m trying to listen to music. The song keeps getting cut off. Very disappointed since I only had them for such little time.

    The Worst Headphones Apple has Made

    While the sound coming from the earbuds is actually an improvement, it won't matter within a couple weeks because the earbuds will stop working. At first it was an occasional blip, when the content I listened to would advance or rewind by 15 seconds. Then it turned into a real pain when, every time I moved, a short in the connector caused the content to pause, skip tracks, or shut down the app entirely. I'm a long-term Apple adherent and the earbuds I had on my old, bricky iPod lasted me five years. The only reason I replaced them was because I got an upgraded iPhone. Apple needs to reorient it's priorities back to providing their customers a quality product at a considered cadence instead of trying to push out a new phone every year or so.

    so not worth it...

    a pair of these came with my new iPhone 8. I genuinely care for my things so well, at the end of every day I would pack them away but only 2 months on and the right ear stopped working... I left it and just used my right one and then only a short month later the whole lot packed up. every time I used these for phone calls from day one I would get constant complaints about how quite and rubbish the audio was. To say disappointed would be an understatement.

    The best

    These EarPods are simply the best!!!!!! The sound quality is amazing and they are durable. I accidentally left them in my pocket and threw them in the washing machine and they survived and still sound amazing. I don’t know why their are so many bad reviews but I love them! The one issues I have with them is that my phone does not have a headphone jack, meaning I can not use my headphones without useing a connector.

    Dont last - As always!

    Same old Apple EarPods. Lasted 6 moths before the left side stopped working. Properly wrapped after every use but still broke. I've paid £60 in just over a year for these and wont ever buy any again.

    Used to be made well, now poorly made

    I bought my new phone about two weeks ago and with it came new earbuds. They worked perfectly fine up until now. They stayed untangled and straight. Today I noticed the right earbud does not work. The microphone still works and so does the left earbud. My old earbuds went through the washing machine twice and they still worked.

    Overpriced Failure

    I went to my local apple shop to buy my headphones straight from the store. I thought that buying them directly from the source would mean that they were in good condition. I used the for 1 month when the sound suddenly cut out! The remote was working, the phone recognised they were there and there was no apparent damage. I tried them in my friends phone and had the exact same problem. The headphones are overpriced anyways let alone for them to stop working! I have no sound in these headphones so don’t buy them.

    Short life span

    Sound quality for the price is nice, but if you use them daily on your commute or walk in the park dont expect them to last longer than 6 months. The extremely fragile connection between the cable and lightning plug will break because of the low quality materials used around the cable. Compared to the old mini-jack version this has a distinct shorter life span.

    They sound great!

    Apple’s definitely right about these sounding better than the old 3.5mm ones. They’re a lot clearer, and have a deeper and richer bass as well. Also, the fact that it works with virtually all Apple products makes it even more practical than the old ones. These are definitely one of the best earphones in the world.

    These earbuds are amazing. I accidentally left them in my jean shorts pocket and they got put through the wash. When I found them I was pretty sure they were done for but I hung them up to dry anyway. The next day I tried them out and they worked! They are durable and have good sound quality. Definitely worth the $30.

    Dosen’t Work

    When you first get them they work great, but they break after a month. Don’t waste your money. Super disappointed in Apple!

    Terrible don't buy

    Broke after 6 months, and this was the third time I've bought them.

    Terrible customer service (waiting on the phone right now for 10 minutes with annoying music playing). Just buy other headphones.

    iPhone-only headphones?

    Why buy a pair of headphones that only mate to current generation iPhones? They sound EXACTLY the same as the 3.5mm ones but don't require the dongle adapter. However, they prevent you from plugging into anything besides a current generation iPhone--including the new MacBook Pros!

    Don't buy this if you want connectivity with other devices and don't want to be stuck with a useless component when iPhones upgrade to USB-C

    Absolute piece of trash

    I’ve had my iPhone 7 for a while now, roughly a year, and I’m already on my 5th one. My mother also bought an iPhone 7 whose earbuds that I borrow and end up breaking, but it was never my fault. THEY ARE ABSOLUTE TRASH, AND I MEAN IT. I purchased so many pairs just for the sake of just listening to music, and every now and then the earbuds go out and skip a song or stops the song without me telling it to. After a week, the earbuds would give out completely and I would have to figure out a way to buy them again. I had a much higher expectation and I’m genuinely disappointed and dissatisfied in this supposedly “big and trustworthy” company. I didn’t buy a phone for $800 and spend almost $100 on earbuds so that I could trash them in 2 weeks. Huge dissapointment.

    Love it

    I would highly recommend it, I have been using it on my waterproof case and there were no problems so I can get used to the no headphone port on the new iPhones

    So frustrating! Don’t buy these!

    Do not buy these headphones! I’ve gone through two pairs in the past 6 months, and they broke in exactly the same way.
    The headphones would start randomly interfering with the pause, play and volume controls on music/podcasts and then the left ear would completely stop working. The headphones were only ever kept in a light bag and it can’t be a coincidence they broke in the same way twice. You’d be better off saving some money and buying a fake on eBay, it would probably last longer! Really disappointed, I got these with my new iPhone and when you pay a fortune for the phone you expect to get headphones with a shelf life longer than 3 months.

    Stopped working the 2nd day

    That's right.

    These are a big disappointment. Apple had a high standard but these are honestly so pathetic I can't respect the company the same.

    Poor Quality Earbuds - Too Expensive For Quality - Lack of Convienience

    fits in ear
    sound isn't terrible when brand new
    white color is noticeable

    Dongle required to charge iPhone and listen to music at same time (this is a daily pattern for me)
    These wear out fast. Within one week the sound would cut in and out.
    Within one month, the left earbud gets distorted.
    Created so Apple can eliminate the headphone jack. Boo.

    I'm so disappointed with this design decision. For what? So they can sell the wireless earbuds??? I don't want the wireless earbuds because people can't see them in my ears (I have long hair). Nothing screams "I am on the phone right now/leave me alone!" like two white wires coming from somewhere near my head going to my iPhone like the wired earbuds.
