    Broke in 3 weeks😒

    • Written by Maria D from Richmond

    Might as well keep buying $5 headphone instead of these cause they break after I spent $30, and I bought two

    Can't wear them for any longer than 30 seconds before my ears start to hurt. When I take them out, they continue to hurt for a while after. They don't stay in easily.

    Please do not buy, stay away

    • Written by Manny C from Clarksville

    I am an avid Apple user and like to believe that most apple products are reliable and durable. Unfortunately, this is not the case with the headphones. Please do not buy them at all. On the bright side, but still in disgust, is that they came with the new phone we purchased. I rarely used the headphones and still, they barely lasted over six months. What a total failure and disgrace. I am starting to lose faith in the future and products that Apple produces. Being on a deployment overseas and having the headphones break mid-conversation with my family back home is an absolute embarrassment. Purchasing another set would take nearly a month to receive, please stay away..

    Very short product life

    • Written by AYHAN A from Washington

    Three months after, one side stopped working. It seems Apple are banking on people buying this accessory over and over again so that we can continue using our expensive Iphones. Apple people, you better address this if you want to hold on to your phone sales.

    I am on my third pair of headphones (about to be fourth) for my 2.5 year old phone because these headphones keep dying in one ear. This is the third time it has happened, and the most recent pair lasted 2 months. I do like to run, but only do so a few times a week, so it isn't like I'm using them all the time. I wish I could buy another brand of headphones for my phone instead of wasting 30 dollars on these. This is the last time I buy an iPhone and use Apple products. The products don't last and only can use Apple products. Don't recommend these headphones and so looking forward to buying a new phone and getting new headphones for it. These headphones shouldn't be dying after a few months of use, so not a fan and don't recommend.

    Between pushing these in your ears to lock them in place and struggling to filter out any music out of the street noise the EarPods let in amplified, you'll never mistake this disfunctional Apple-designed money grabbing piece of junk with anything remotely related to earphones. Non standard shape that - legends say - fits selected few, thin and fragile cable, hard plastic that hurts the ear canals - these are all cherries on the cake. The cake itself is the ability of the EarPods to make specific world noises louder and the lack of any attempt to even block outside noises. Yes, you can crack the volume up, but this triggers sound leakage and in the same time shows how underpowered these are. The EarPods are the single product that shows Apple's absolute worst - hubris, greed, lack of consumer care and no understanding what they are even supposed to produce in terms of basic features.

    5 pairs later

    • Written by Charles M from Camden

    Angry human internet post #37642-5885

    Sound great before the intentional shelf life expires. Each time one side has suddenly stopped working.

    I once owned a 3.5mm pair for three years before I had to replace.

    I’m now on my 5th pair of lightning connector earbuds within two years. (6 months of that I didn’t have headphones as I was exasperated)

    I don’t treat my headphones badly. In fact I became more cautious after each fail.

    This latest fail I was watching a video and heard the left side weaken then cut out completely. There was no rough use or stress on the connector...

    Reading the reviews here it’s clearly a common issue.
    Absolutely disgusted that a company (that once distinguished itself via its world leading design ethic) feel it’s ok to continue releasing this product with a design fault. It just doesn’t work. What a waste of time, resources and money. Yes they’re under warrantee but after the third time it’s become a joke, it’s depressing when the store employees are being told to act surprised when they probably deal with these several times each day.
    I can only conclude they're intentionally designed to fail. Sad.

    I hate these earpods.

    • Written by Sarah N from Clinton Township

    I never had this problem with my older iphones, but these earpods seem to really be lacking in quality. I am sick of having to buy them again and again because one of the earbuds randomly stops working.

    Battery Drain

    • Written by Wensen J from Raleigh

    Surprisingly a wired headphone drains more battery than bluetooth airpod. Probably that's the sales strategy for selling airpods?

    Cheaply made

    • Written by Maddy P from Marshville

    These earbuds sound so good, the audio is amazing but I do not recommend them because they are cheaply made. I bought my third pair of these cause my other ones broke and I didn’t have them for maybe two weeks and they broke in one ear. I’m really disappointed cause I just lost 30 dollars. DO NOT BUY THESE!

    Could be Better

    • Written by Shaniece P from Worcester

    I purchased a replacement set of earpods three weeks ago. Since then, I've had multiple instances where the music/audio would pause as if the EarPods fell out (even though they were still connected/plugged in). Most times I would press play (second instinct) and the music or video would blast from the speaker even though the EarPods were still connected!! This happens both with my iPhone XR & iPad. I haven't had these EarPods for a long time and now doubt the more expensive alternative would function better. I haven't had these for very long and worry this problem may get worse.

    They'd be good if they were not trash

    • Written by Elena D from Lima

    Honestly, I'm good with the audio quality, the microphone and everything. The fact they keep breaking makes them trash tho. I've been trough 3 pairs of this and that's just because they come with the iPhone I bought in the first place. You initially lose audio in one earpod, then the random volume controls freak out and then it stops working all together. Trash. Don't bother actually spending money on this until they publicly state they've changed this clearly ongoing problem.

    Keep Breaking

    • Written by Ryan V from Winchester

    I have gone through many pairs of these headphones and within 3 months of having them, they are broken. The right side always fails first with no audio coming out of the headphone. I wish I could get a pair that last, it is annoying having to keep going through headphones.

    Unreliable garbage

    • Written by Miguel C from Washington

    I've been through three of these (replaced for free at the Apple Store). They last a month or two and then start going haywire, skipping through music, activating voice control, etc. I would never pay a penny for them, they are of phenomenally low quality. It's not like I'm abusing them - the earphones that came with my old Android phone in 2010 still work perfectly and in fact I am now using those through the Lightning adapter with no problems.
