    Apple headphones

    These are the worst headphones apple has made by far. I am going on my third pair of headphones for my iPhone 7 because they continue to break and it always is the connection into the port. Quit being cheap apple!

    Please update these for iPhone 7+

    I love these buds. I have a few pair actually.
    But now I have to use the lightning converter in order to use with my iPhone7 Plus.

    I am on the search for similar buds with the lightning connector. I hope you guys decide to update these.

    Thanks
    - Patrick

    Wonderful sound in one earbud

    I was so happy with my purchase, and when I plugged them into ipad for a movie on the airplane, they felt and sounded great,....but only on one side. If I wiggled the cord around, sometimes I'd get both sides for about 10 min. Then, the left side would get static and go dead. I returned them to the selling store.

    Good!

    These headphones are *far* better than the similar ones made by Beats. The sound is good and the earbuds are very comfortable. The only issue is that I have occasionally lost the rubber part that goes in your ear and Apple doesn't sell replacements.

    Love them but...

    These are my favorite headphones, but I want to get the iPhone 7, and these are not compatible. Please make a version that is either wireless or has a lightning port! Please!!!

    Totally not Worth it

    Bought these ear phones online, was shocked after looking at these earphones as it's no where comparable for the price i paid, these were as similar as $5 earphones that i can buy in gas stations. Never excepted such a poor quality from APPLE. Finally I would say not worth your money.

    Horrible

    The worst headphones ever. Either this pair is broken or they are pure garbage. I am extremely disappointed. The sound quality is horrible. They are flat and the bass sound is a sad joke. What is even more infuriating then the sound quality is the price. I will try to return these tomorrow. I cannot believe these are even manufactured.

    Comfortable with different tips

    The EarPods that come with the iPhone are extremely uncomfortable to me. I chose the purchase these in-ear style for the promised sound and comfort. The gel tips that come wth the headphones are poor. Twice I've had them dislodge from the stem and remain stuck in my ear canal. On both instances a colleague had to remove the gel tips with tweezers. I've kept the in-ear headphones and now use tips from Comply Foam. Best sound isolation for the price. I hear my phone calls and music clearly, even in noisy environments.

    Great product

    Everyone who has written a review saying "its trash" or "they don't fit" either doesn't know how to change the silicone buds or hasn't used them. SMH

    Solid, responsive headphones for the price

    $79 is hard to beat for good dual-driver headphones. My first set lasted from 2008-2014 - at which point I replaced them. Still going strong in 2016. I do suggest getting extra ear covers (the silicone tips). Make sure that the right size is used for optimal base response. The wrong size will result in little to no bass.

    poor bass

    U feel no vibrations from the bass, plus you lose the buds so easily.

    One of the worst Apple experience ever

    These things are awful. Poor sound quality....and a really poorly conceived design....the ear bud things always come off, get lost, don't stay in....yes you get a few extras but seriously? avoid.

    Best in-ear I've used

    I have used Apples in ear for years! Love them

    Very clear mids and treble. Quiet bass. Two speakers per ear-bud.

    Cheapest dual driver in-ear headphones--meaning that each bud has two speakers instead of one.

    Very neutral headphones. Great for classical music. Mediocre for electronic music. Bass is there, but for many it may be too quiet as most individuals are not used to relatively flat spectrum reproduction. This explains the poor reviews, and why equipment that sweetens the bass and treble sells better--Bose, Skull Candy, etc.

    These are my second pair. They do rip easily if you don't take care of them.

    Also look into buying foam tips. The insulation from outside sound is far superior, and thus the bass doesn't leak out and is stronger. Be warned, foam tips wear very quickly and can be pricey--10-20 dollars for a set of 3. The included tips are very durable, but are part of the reason the bass is weak.

    Struggling to find a replacement

    This review is way overdue. I have been using these IEMs for the past 6 or so years almost exclusively for my commute, for travel and in the office.
    I can confirm that these are *very* tender, and I have had to replace them on average once every 18 months for various reasons.
    I will also say that they have pretty bad microphonics.
    Finally, I will say that the tips are comfortable, they are not optimal for sound isolation, and the latter can be improved with ones from another brand (look it up).

    That being said, if you know anything about portable audio, you will know that dual-balanced-armature at this price are near non-existent, which makes these IEMs AMAZING in terms of sound quality / money. Now, you may or may not like neutral and detailed sound, and you NEED to like it to enjoy these. I love it. And I love these IEMs. And I have had trouble finding a replacement for these for the past year or so, because there doesn't seem to be something better along the same lines for under 200 bucks - 3 times higher than the MSRP of these, and some 4-5 higher than the best prices I've seen when discounted online.

    Bottom line: Sound/money these have few rivals if you like neutral sound. Build/money is excellent in terms of looks, but average at best in terms of durability, especially when compared to the likes of RHA. At the end of the day, the sound is worth it to me, and I will keep replacing them as long as alternatives do not become cheaper.

    I'm disappointed they don't have a new version with lightning port

    I love these earphones. I've gone through 2 different pairs in about 6 years. I use them 3-4+ hours a day. They're really comfortable and they don't break. I need to replace my current ones because the wires are starting to show, the ear phones still work though. I was really hoping apple would upgrade them to include lightning port, but so far it doesn't look like it. I'm disappointed because It's difficult to find comfortable earphones.

    I am a mess and these are wonderful.

    I left my earphones in my pocket and they went through both the washer and dryer and still have the same exact sound. good stuff.

    Don't believe the negative reviews, these are incredible, and I'll prove it

    These headphones are the most underrated product Apple sells.

    These are EARPLUG headphones. They plug your ears, not just sit inside them like other types of earbuds, and they certainly don't sit in top of your head like two small cans of cat food. They are elegant, minimal, and wonderful.

    No other headphones come close to blocking outside sound, letting your music gloriously play in your ear as it was meant to be enjoyed.

    Screaming baby in seat 34F? No problem, pop these in, and you'll enjoy several dB of noise reduction instantly. You don't even need to put on the music.

    Horns, taxis, sirens, or just noisy spouse asking why you're a bum?

    No problem, put these on, and you won't hear a thing.

    Because they block outside sound, they leave your ears with nothing but the joyous music you desire. It arrives clear and booming (if you're into bass) because its airtight in your ear canal the entire inner ear is used as a bass chamber.

    It's a shame because people don't fit them correctly. Apple generously gives you several sizes to fit. But no consumer product can have every size needed, so they might just not work for you.

    But if you do get them sized correctly, you will absolutely be amazed at the sound quality.

    I really hope Apple releases a Lightning cable version of these soon!

    Expected so much better!

    To start on a positive note, the in-ear plugs fit very well. That's pretty much where it ends. Listening to music isn't enjoyable because there is hardly any bass present. This causes all sounds to sound very tinny. For the price I paid for these headphones, I expected a lot better than what I got. Hopefully this gets improved upon in future iterations.
