    Don't recommend them

    I have been a fan of any apple products but this one really disappointed me. I've had 2 pairs so far because the audio would do its own thing. The left side would go out and I wouldn't know what to do and then magically it started to work again. I will say that they feel amazing and the sound is great (sometimes) but if you put the ear bud in your ear to far the audio will sound a little weird so you have to be gentle with putting them in. Can't just pop them in and go. Sad that this was my first time buying a bad apple product :(

    Terrible - won't stay in, plugged-up and broken

    These headphones are terrible. The multi-sized silicone covers are either too big (won't go in your ear) or too small (doesn't form a seal and comes out). Worse, once the cover came of IN MY EAR and a co-worker had to take it out with a pair of pliers. That was 3 years ago. I can't believe Apple still carries them. I don't have a huge amount of ear wax, but within a month or two, the left one became plugged. I was able to clean it out a few times, but now it has just stopped working due to the damage.

    Poor sound quality, don't stay in ear

    I agree with the other reviews: the sound quality is no better than the standard apple earbuds. Furthermore, these don't stay in my ear- I even swapped out the plastic tops for size large.

    Worse than the cheaper ones

    I definitely like the regular EarPods (which are half the price) a lot better. The sound is better and they're more comfortable. These ones are just not worth the money and I'm sorry I bought them. I don't even use them, I bought another pair of the cheaper ones instead. For ones like this, I'd go spend $10 any place.

    Perfromance is Great Design Sub Par

    I currently have 2 pairs of these headphones and have enjoyed the sound quality. However, the silicone tips are poorly designed as over time they have ripped or fallen off while removing from pockets. Without the right silicone tip these will not stay in your Ear and are worthless! The worst part is Apple DOESN'T make it easy to purchase replacement Silicone ear-tips. I actually called apple support and they tried selling me a part that was "apparently" the silicone tip for $39 when I paid $80 !! It's shouldn't be this hard to sell these to customers and I'm sure i'm not the only customer who feels this way. It seems Apple doesn't focus as much attention to these type of accessories as they do their main line products.I wouldn't buy these again!

    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!

    Very poor quality

    Wish I had read the reviews before buying these. The sound quality is awful, when talking on the phone there's a feedback /echo thing that happens that is very disconcerting. Worst of all is the loud snap that comes out of the right earbud every 15-20 seconds.

    Apple EarPods

    I have been buying apple EarPods for years to use with my iPhone. Never used to have any problems with them, they used to last for about at least 2 years. But the last ones I bought didn't even last me 6 months, the mic side headphone stopped working. I called apple about it, but I was told that the 1 year warranty doesnt mean anything because I don't have apple warranty on my iPhone anymore. I think the quality on apple products has gone down. I don't think I am going to be spending that extra money for apple accessories when the quality is not there....

    Disappointed

    Run arosss this at London Drugs not what I expected, wish they can put rubber tip in the apple pods as those are way better
    They are discent but not worth $100. worth about $50-$60 in my opinion.

    Rubbish

    This was without my worst purchase, ever. At the price, and with the Apple trademark, you may expect the best headphones ever...oh no. Within weeks one of the headphones had reduced output...this can be changed, but more importantly, the design is at fault as the weight of the product isn't carried by the in ear design meaning that the headphones keep falling out he ear...no matter which fitting is used. What a waste of money.

    Horrible

    The day that I can finally put apple headphones and not have the outside world drown out my music is when you can say they're "revolutionary". I hear the persons conversation more then my own music. Definitely has no bass to it. From exprience $10 headphones sound better. Save your $30 and buy something better.

    VERY poor quality sound!

    I got these thinking they would be a step up from the stock earbuds I get with the iPhone, but WRONG. Sounds like I'm listening to music out of a tin can. While they are very comfortable, the sound quality is close to a dollar store pair of headphones. Absolute sh&t, for lack of a better word. Avoid at all costs.

    Worse sound than earbuds. Much worse.

    I love my iMac. I have enjoyed immensely my iPhones, from the very first one to my current 6s. But with the change to lightning connectors and airbuds the handwriting is on the wall for the 3.5mm connector.

    But look! Apple has earphones, not just earbuds for the 3.5.

    If you want to pay over twice as much as earbuds then to be rewarded with worse sound for phone calls (it is an iPhone after all) than late 60's office intercoms (they were a thing, a horrible sounding thing). This is the product that will make it happen. As to music, don't even try. No bass. None. Listen to all of your music, or something, was the promise. But not with apple's earphones. Because they are dramatically worse than earbuds.

    Unusable. Unbelievably so. For a company that is so committed to music and music appreciation to produce an audio product this bad is mind boggling.

    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.

    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.

    More trouble than they are worth.

    Simply put, the silicone ear fittings do not stay on the earbud posts. You will get about 6 weeks of good use out of these and then you will battle the ear pieces to keep the silicone pieces on and the buds in your ears. For something that costs this much, they should be usable for more than 6 weeks.

    Muffled, consistently inconsistent sound

    I have tried every possible ear tip size. These headphone just don't work. The sounds is always muffled in one ear or the other or both. If might work well for three minutes and then the sound becomes attenuated. Mess with it... mess with it... oh there it works. Two minutes later it doesn't work any more. Change earbud size, repeat. It just never works. Waste of money since these will sit in a box once I find more expensive earplugs that do work. I've even unscrewed the screens and swapped them all around and it just doesn't work reliably. The most that I can ever get is 30 seconds of less-muffled-than-normal sound in one ear. Never both. Never more than 30 seconds. Wish I could return these.

    poor bass

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

    Apple should be ashamed ( and I am a self confessed Apple fan boy)

    Brought a pair an hour ago at the Hornsby Westfield Apple Store.

    Always been quite happily with ear buds but thought surely for $129 they must be a step up.

    But honestly I can't believe how bad they sound.

    THE worst sounding earphones I've ever owned. Tinny no bass just truly horrible.

    I did a direct comparison with my ear buds and they sound a whole lot better.

    I tried changing the silicone cushion but that made no difference.

    I really expected more from Apple - I am going to take them back right now- means another trip to Westfield but I feel ripped off.

    If anyone from Apple would care to respond I'm all ears
