    Not Durable

    • Written by Benjamin B from Silver Spring

    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

    • Written by Rueben H from North platte

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

    Broke within weeks

    • Written by Nate S from Alpharetta

    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

    • Written by Shelly M from Safety Harbor

    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

    • Written by April P from Silverhill

    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

    • Written by Anthony K. E from Clarksville

    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.

    • Written by Kalyn A from Princeton

    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.

    The absolute worst

    • Written by Sarah W from Bunceton

    These are the worst earbuds of all time. The earbuds that come with iPhones are always terrible and these are no different. They’re way too big for my ears. They are SO hard and painful and are always falling out. WHY can’t they just put regular earbuds in there?? To add insult to injury, the ones that aren’t made of hard, painful plastic cost upwards of $100. If there was a headphone jack it would be fine, but there’s not.

    • Written by Kelly S from Mars

    I use my headphones all the time this is my second pair in less than a year. My music stopped one day and I realized the cord was separated from the plug and I had to try and take it out without completely ruining my charging port.

    My Apple earphones are nondestructible

    • Written by Abbey E from Melbourne

    I am a swimmer and have brought my earphones to every swim meet I have ever had. They have been accidentally thrown in water so many times and they still have a very good quality sound. My earphones have also survived over half of hurricane Irma in my backyard by the pool as well as the washing machine.... they have been brought to the beach all the time and have been thrown in the sand and heat and even sunscreen.. my earphones have been through all of this and still work like they did when I bought them. They are by far the best earphones I have ever had.

    Kinda disappointed...

    • Written by Melita H from westland

    I got these headphones with my new IPhone, and without reason, they broke within 3 months of owning them. However, the sound quality was quite great while they still worked. The right side will no longer provide sound, but the microphone/control thing still works. Now only the left side will produce sound.

    Apple earbuds

    • Written by John L from Bloomington

    Very disappointed with the Apple earphones I just bought them 5 days ago and when using them randomly one of the right ear has no sound coming out of it. The reason I bought these new ones was because with my other ones the same thing happened where the sound was not coming out f one speaker.

    Disappointed that my EarPods with the Lightning Connector broke within six months; I take good care of my headphones and hate the fact that Apple forces its customers to purchase either these fragile headphones or the AirPods, which I think are too expensive. The sound quality is decent for both sets, but for 30$ or more, you can easily find headphones with better quality that I can no longer use with the iPhone 7's connector.

    Apple Headphones

    • Written by Joey P from Maple valley

    I treated these headphones very well (never broke headphones in the past), the most I did was walk to class with them then set them on my counter. The control/microphone thing went out about a month after buying them. Then a week later the right earphone stopped working and now the left is cutting out. I expected more from a company like Apple. I would recommend a different brand very disappointed.
