    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

    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.

    WORST headphones ever made by Apple

    Giving one star because I can't give zero. I am not sure if this is because of the Lightning Connector or what, but these headphones are horrible! This is my third pair and all of them come already with this issue: bad contact with the plug. I use them mostly to work out and any slight rougher movement I make, the music stops. Then I have to unplug, reconnect and press play again. Now imagine this several times per workout (which is not a delicate activity). Never again!

    Nice sound. Weightless. Comfortable. Battery too short for phone calls

    Happy with it since day one with the major bummer of dropping calls after less than 90 min. A problem during business teleconferences. Other issue is that when the battery is down, if you have not switched the sound on the phone to another target (plugging earbuds for example), as removing one airpod from your ear to reload it will be interpreted as an end of call and the telephone will hang off. Sound is overall quite good for such a light device. Also definitely very expensive. Still happy. You can listen to music while not being from ambient noises (there is no noise cancellation feature/effect at all), and have a normal conversation with it - might look strange but works.

    They sound great and they stay in really well but they go out too fast (mine went out within 2 months). I feel like they’re too expensive for how flimsy they are.

    Terrible, not durable at all

    I buy these and go through them right away. It has been the same every time; one earbud stops working. The next few days, they both break. There is no damage done to them at all. Also, they will randomly start, stop, pause, and skip music. Not worth $30 at all.

    Not Durable

    These only seem to last for a few months. Without any obvious damage, these earbuds have started performing erratically; the controls seem to miscommuniate with my iPhone turning music on and off without me doing anything.

    Worst headphones don’t get

    These are the worst headphones ever. Not worth 30 dollar also. The old ones were better and they didn’t fall apart

    Still working great even after being washed LOL

    I forgot that it was in my pants pocket when I washed it. I thought it wouldn’t work anymore but surprisingly it still works like nothing happened! It’s just extra clean! Good job apple!

    Broke within weeks

    Just got my Iphone 8 and used the apple earbuds and guess what only one ear works. The great thing about this is that I can’t use my old earphones because there is no headphone jack. Just got my Iphone 8 a couple weeks ago so these were brand new earbuds.

    best earpods

    this is third pair of earpods that I own. everytime I need them a pair was around until couldn't find any of it. to my surprise I had put them with a pair of jeans into the washing machine! Plug them into my stereo and they worked!!! sound great and a washing machine won't stop them! I suggest others to give them a go.

    Max 8 month life span

    If you are interested in purchasing a temporary set of earphones, then these are definitely the ones to waste your money on. Don’t get me wrong, they work great for about 7 1/2 months, then one side will stop working. Also, when I contacted support to see if they are covered under warranty, I received a case number to take to my local Apple store for a possible trade except for my local Apple store is 148 miles away. Come on Apple, you guys are better than these EarPods. I know they are only $29, but after purchasing an $800 iPhone 7 Plus, $1,000 MacBook Air and $400 iPad mini, I can’t afford the $160 AirPods.

    $29 for a $5 product

    The fact that Apple believes all ears are created equal and that one size fits all is ludicrous. These earbuds are completely useless to me. They fall out of my ears with the slightest movement. While they are pleasing on the eyes I unfortunately cant hear by looking at them. The "Sleek design" that everyone talks about is more like the "Slick design" because they’re so slippery they slip right out of my ears. The hard plastic design creates a very slick surface. Without anything to provide friction or grip the buds just fall out. Now the sound quality is there but only if I hold my fingers on the buds to keep them in my ear. Aside from that it’s difficult to hear anything when they are hanging from my neck. I wouldn’t buy a pair of these if they were selling for a single dollar. I don’t make it a habit of buying stuff that doesn’t function properly unless I can fix it and unfortunately this design cant be fixed.

    I have the 7, had it since it was first born. I refuse to spend lots more money for headphones, when the product that comes with the phone should perform properly. I have had to replace the headphones 3times, and each time the same issue continues to happen. They’ll be work just fine and then about a month or so later they lose sound in one ear and the other ear you can barely hear.

    Can you please make a better quality earbud that come with the iPhone.

    Mine simply don't work.

    Writing a negative review for an Apple product seems like shouting into a void, but I guess I'm writing this in hopes that this design may evolve and improve based on customer feedback. My headphones glitch constantly, pressing pause, skipping songs, hanging up on people, so badly that I can't use them. I spoke to a lovely customer service rep about this, but unfortunately the only solution the company has in place is for me to go the Apple store to run tests to find out what's going on with my headphones (or if it's an issue with the recent screen replacement I had). Having just spent an entire afternoon (3-7) at the Grand Central location two weeks ago, I'm not sure when I'll be able to fit this into my schedule again.

    Apple, please improve this design, come up with a better way to handle replacements in these instances, or make these headphones cheaper! $30 is too much to be constantly shelling out for something that breaks or malfunctions all the time.
