    I had my earbuds for almost 8 1/2 months and they stayed in good shape until they got smushed in my backpack and the plastic fell off the actual bud. They’re good earbuds in general if you take good care of them. I recommend this product.

    Pretty great but..

    • Written by Mike M from Lusby

    I have had these for about 11 months and they were pretty powerful until the 9th month where the bass was the only thing that was loud and the treble was very weak. I have to put it up all the way and it’s still not loud enough for my comfort.

    These earbuds are okay. They have good bass and are comfortable but the lightning connector part broke in my phone

    Better than expected

    • Written by Mark C from Chelsea

    The sound quality is terrific ... if you’re sitting still. I hadn’t used Apple’s EarPods before, but after buying a new iPhone X I thought I’d try them out of the box. This was a precursor to me perhaps buying a set of very expensive AirPods, or so I thought. If the wired EarPods weren’t up to scratch, the wireless AirPods wouldn’t be either, not because of sound quality but because of fit. As I said, the EarPod’s sound quality was terrific, much better than my very expensive Bluetooth headphones. But - and isn’t there always a but - the pods would not stay in my ears. And as I wanted to use them in the gym, there was no way they were going to stay put. The simple solution was buying some skins. The EarPods now stay put, the sound is just as good, and I’m happy. I won’t be buying a pair of AirPods simply because I don’t need to. The EarPods are just fine, with the skins of course.

    I love it

    • Written by Sara R from Edinburg

    I have been using these EarPods ever since I got the iPhone 7 which has been a little over a year now. I love the way you can adjust the volume with the little thing on the wire (I don’t know what it’s called!). It has been my best friend and worked perfectly. Recently though, I noticed the left ear would randomly stop working and then only the left one would work only for it to switch again. It’s great, I just wish it lasted longer.

    These are average quality.

    • Written by Kim F from Lees Summit

    I don't understand why earbuds are so expensive. Its a chord and a speaker how expensive could it be. Now my last pair of apple earbuds that came with my iphone 6 were the same accept the fact they didn't fall apart as easy. I left them in the washer and dryer and got completely shredded...

    Low stars?

    • Written by Roger P from Miami

    I don't know why some people complain about these earphones. I have been having them for 3+ months and they are perfect. They are comfortable and it is so much better than the regular earphones. I don't like to be carrying around the adapter because the adapter is also pretty costly and I prefer this one having the lightning connector so like that I can just leave the adapter in my car, or in my house where it can be safe and I don't have to lose it. I recommend to anyone this earphones honestly and as a matter of fact, I am buying a new set for my sister. After she saw that I have a pain, she had been nagging me to get her a pair of these awesome earphones.

    Almost perfect

    • Written by Luuk D from ZEVENAAR

    Hi all,

    I've been using my earpods for a while now just to test them.
    As a sound engineer I am used to high-end speaker systems, as a reference I took my Shure SE in-ear monitors and a avarage PA system.
    My first impression was WOW, the earbud's sound very well for a included pair of earbuds. After using them for 2 weeks I just found one shortcomming. From 16KHz and up I miss a part of my sound, ofcourse this is solvable by using a equalizer but the back side is that I need to turn off the EQ every time I want to use my I phone to play music over a PA system since they are most often perfectly capable of producing that part of the frequency spectrum.

    Apple, I hope you can do something with this feedback.

    With kind regards,
    The Netherlands

    Durable and Reliable with One Noticeable Flaw

    • Written by Casey T from Chicago

    I don’t have any major complaints about these earbuds. I often use them for commuting and exercising, where sound quality isn’t a primary concern. I don’t want to ruin my more expensive headphones when I have these that I can beat up, and these earbuds definitely can take a beating. The one flaw I’ve noticed with these, that I never had with stardard 3.5mm headphone jack EarPods, is the disconnection that occurs in cold weather. I don’t know if this is a flaw of the iPhone’s Lightning connector or the EarPods, but in cold weather, the audio will cut out and you can hear the EarPods “disconnect” and pop as if they had been physically unplugged from the iPhone while still in your ears. This is a nuisance I never had to deal with while having a 3.5mm headphone jack on my iPhone. The only solution I can think of is to use Bluetooth wireless headphones in cold weather.

    Pros and Cons

    • Written by Lydia C from Medina

    I just got the iPhone 7 in February and it is now September and the headphones Apple supplied with the iPhone 7 are already broken. I wasn’t very happy at first because you cannot charge your iPhone and listen to music at the same time but once I started using the headphones more I was okay with it because of the lightning cord and the great sound of the headphones. These headphones right ear phone fell off completely. I tried to make it work but it wouldn’t work. I love the sound and quality of these headphone I’m going to spend $29.99 on buying a new pair. I think the wireless Airpods are way to expensive when you can just get these. Im writing this review just for everyone buying these Earpods to be aware that they are very fragile and will break easily like the broken pair I have now. I will be heading to the Apple Store soon to buy a new pair. I hope your EarPods don’t end up like mine. I recommend buying these EarPods. But be careful with them.

    Great for iPhone 7, would even use it on my older devices

    • Written by Arthur P from Aartrijke

    These have a pretty nice sound and a great build quality. They fit in my ear nicely without having those weird rubber ear things, which is a plus for me. I feel like they have slightly better audio quality, but that might be because they rely on digital audio and not on analog audio.
    One thing that does bothers me is that these are not very useful with my macbook.

    Great Quality underrated

    • Written by Sebastian M from Riverside

    These ear pods stay in my ear and have great sound quality. Works well with my iPhone seven and is very handy if only I could stop losing them. I am planning on purchasing 3-5 more because I think they are great Quality. One problem is I can't use 'hey siri' with them like I was hoping. Overall great product should buy.

    Great Overall!

    • Written by William E from chicago

    The sound is very nice! Blocks out everything else,I wouldn't say the design is perfect but wayyyyy better than the cheap circle ones from convience stores. The bass is very clear and you can hear all the background instruments and sounds that u don't with other headphones or even the phone speakers. (I have an iPhone 7). The highest volume is VERY loud. I like my music loud but this loud is LOUD. The cord is very flexible do I think it's harder to catch a shortage in so that's good. I lost mine! Almost cried because when I have them in it zones the world out and I get T'd!!! But if I don't find them I'll definitely buy some more of these

    Lighting connection issue

    • Written by Sean C from Erie

    Ran into a problem with my new lighting connected headphones, that I received with my iPhone 7. When I plugged them in no sound? I tired to unplug and plug back in multiple times with no success, I was really surprised and thought something was wrong with the phone. I set them aside and was going to use the dongle. When I flipped the connector 180 º I plugged it back in and they worked, I then tried it in my iPad Air 2 same issue, so I contacted Apple support and they are sending me new set and I am sending this set back to them, thanks Apple!

    My dad has the old earpods and these actually sound better. You can feel the bass but not in an annoying tickle your ear way. Wish i could give it a 5 star but if i could get this quality without the lighting connector so i can use it on my laptop or nintendo that would be great. Was going to trade them in for the headphone connector but the quality wasn't worth it. LOVE THE NEW EARPODS GOOD JOB APPLE

    Much Better Than I Anticipated

    • Written by Joe B from Fort Worth

    I had tried the EarPods before and frankly decided they were not worth the effort it took to keep them in my ears. When I got a new iPhone 7 Plus, I decided to try again, mainly to see if I would be willing to try the forthcoming wireless model. Things have changed since the last time I tried the earbuds mainly vastly superior audio output from the iPhone 7 Plus (the stereo speakers are amazingly good) and a digital signal but these are good enough that I have started using the EarPods with Lightning Connector regularly in spite of the fact they still tend to fall out of my ears (thus 4 instead of 5 stars).

    In fact they are good enough I am going to trust Tim Cook's word that the wireless EarBuds don't fall out because there is no wire to pull them out and go for the wireless version when they are released.
