    OverPriced EarTrash

    I bought these a week ago because i see people always wearing them so I think to myself why not buy them so i did and when i first put them in my ear they were comfortable. But when i started to put on music they sounded muddy and muffled so if you listen to any sort of heavy rock or hard rock then these are not the product for you. so i returned them in less then 48 hours. Also these headphones have the cheapest quality I have ever seen, even earbud makers such as Jlab or Sony headphones under 20 dollars that have better quality fit and finish than the earpods. So for the price would I recommend them, No because there are better options from Jlab or Sony for around the same price .

    Always break

    I was constantly buying the Apple EarPods and they are not worth the price. They may fit perfectly in your ear but the built quality is terrible. The earphones end up Aging and the sound isn’t clear or the device itself breaks. Invest in AirPods or anything much better.

    Best I’ve Tried

    I’ve tried many different styles and brands of earbuds because I have cats that tend to chew the cords. Out of all the kinds I’ve tried, Apple EarPods are the bes. They don’t eventually stop working the way most earbuds do. The sound quality is always good, and the shape of the EarPods are perfect for my ears. I only wish that these were more affordable!

    Good for a while, but DO NOT LAST

    I got these about 7 months ago (I've gone through 4 pairs in 2-3 years) and for the first few months, they worked fine. About 2 months in, I pulled them a little too hard and the covering above the plastic where the cord splits into two ripped, revealing the wires. I admit this was mostly my fault, but still, I'd expect them to be at least a bit more resistant, especially for $30 earbuds. I didn't notice a difference in performace for another few months when sound started bleeding out of both buds, even at lower volumes, and most recently, within a week, the right bud as well as the volume/mic controls went inactive, for no apparent reason. This seems to be a trend, because that exact issue occured with my previous two earpods. I'm extremely dissatisfied, especially coming from such a premium company like Apple.

    Awesome headphones

    I just ordered a new pair of these today after my last pair, which came with a phone I got in 2015, broke. Obviously I haven’t received the new ones yet, but based on my previous pair, these headphones are great. The sound quality of these headphones is much better than any others that I’ve tried, and they are incredibly durable since this is the first time I’ve had to buy a new pair, and I’m not very gentle with my headphones. I’d recommend these to anyone needing headphones for a 3.5mm jack.

    I have totally underestimated these EarPods , the sound quality provided is pretty good considering that they seem extremely basic. But what I love most about these is how durable they are, I have left my EarPods in pockets of my clothes and have washed them TWICE already and they’ve still continued to work for me flawlessly. They’re basic and do the job, but for me they’re by far the best, good enough to take time out of my busy schedule to write a good review on them, I would highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for simple but very good EarPods!

    Good audio quality, but short lifespan

    I've always liked the audio quality of Apple EarPods, both the speakers and the mic, but they consistently don't last very long, I'd say a year plus/minus. I've gone through probably 4-5 sets over the last 5 years, and I will never buy another pair again. I had a pair of Sony earbuds that lasted over 10 years, and they were actually a bit cheaper than the Apple EarPods. I'd give them 4 stars for audio/mic sound quality, but 1/2 star for longevity.

    Great Sound But DON'T LAST!

    I've bought about 6 pairs of these earbuds. I like the sound, and I like the fit. However, they DO NOT last. The connection point where the cord meets the jack always goes bad and shorts. Always. It's a design flaw. Even with the gentlest use and care. I've mentioned this to Apple store employees. They're used to it. And they will not replace them - they always point out the limited warranty. I truly believe Apple designed them this way to increase replacement revenue. At some point, the audio will cut out for one side of your earbuds. Then both. Along the way, it will short in such a way as to randomly trigger Siri, or hang up on callers. What a shame, because I like the fit and sound of these - but the short life is unacceptable. The fact that Apple has sold millions of these and should be well aware of this weakness makes me question Apple. One other thing - sure, I could switch to a lightning jack adapter - but you know what the problem with that is? You can't charge your phone and use it at the same time. If you're a business user, that is a big problem.

    Quite possibly the WORST headphones I've had

    Not only are these at least $10 more than similar bad quality headphones, but these have 0 bass and make music sound tinny. Not to mention they fall out if you remotely touch the cord. Would not buy again.

    Low quality

    Have had these earphones since December came with my new iPhone 6plus, just recently started using them as I have my old pair away. I am extremely disappointed, I took the earphones out of my phone today and the jack just stayed in my phone and totally detached from the earbuds. It didn’t fall or get hit just broke off. I am extremely upset as I pay more for high quality Apple products but in this case was extremely disappointed, and now I have a jack stuck in my phone.

    Broke within a week

    I've never had any issues with apples products being low quality before. For this reason, I didn't bother to save any of the packaging to return them. Unfortunately, after a week of use the left ear randomly stopped working. I will not be purchasing headphones from Apple again.

    Beware of volume blast glitch

    I like that the earbuds are each one solid piece with no foam and they sound ok, but I had to toss these for safety. When I used them with my iPhone 6S, they caused the volume to go up rapidly and out of the blue to full blast (note: it overrode my max volume control) and I was unable to bring the volume back down. I'm an average tech user and know how to ask for help, but I couldn't locate a fix for this. Keep your receipt just in case and do not give these to kids.

    Come on Apple, is this the best you can offer?

    These headphones came with my iPhone 6s, the last iPhone to use a standard headphone audio port (WHY????). At first I was impressed, they came in a nice looking case, and I liked the built-in volume control and mic. They seemed like they would be better than the old apple earbuds I had from my iPod shuffle (Why did you have to discontinue those?). I tried them on, and the sound quality was very good, however, they are very uncomfortable. Sure, they feel fine at first, but I have to use them a lot and after a while they hurt. Why do you continue to use plastic for them??? No one likes it, as can be clearly seen on the consistently bad reviews you've had on all your headphones. Why can't you do what the rest of the world does, and use silicone? Yes, you sell a pair with the silicone tips, but seriously, $79???? I can buy a perfectly decent set for $10 - $20. For the price of the iPhone, you should be able to afford to give a better pair of headphones in the box. Your computers and phones are great, but you have some serious work to do on your headphones if you want happier customers and better reviews.

    The headphones are really great quality but they barely lasted a month. I'm very disapointed i want my money back, thanks.

    I have allergies which make my ears itch and any earbuds with the rubber things make the itching worse but these are so comfortable and I absolutely love them!

    These earbuds are fine. They have semi-decent sound quality, they're pretty comfortable, but they just do not last long enough!! I've had my for a little while and they're acting up a lot. They randomly pause and unpause my music, they randomly skip songs, sometimes the right earbud doesn't work at all, sometimes it does, Siri turns on and off over and over again until I unplug the earbuds- the list goes on. It's annoying, it really, really, is.
