    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.

    Amazing earphones

    I as an Android fan generally just generally ridicule Apple products. These earphones have taught me to not be so easily rude. The sound quality is amazing and that's saying something because I'm extremely picky with that. As for build quality these earphones have proven quite strong. The cable is amazingly strong and that's extremely rare for wired earbuds so these earphones pass in that department. Judging comfort these things are unstoppable. They fit perfectly in the ear and make a tight fit. Overall very comfortable to wear. In conclusion I highly recommend these earphones to anyone looking for quality earphones that don't cost an arm and a leg.

    True Workhorse

    These wired buds have been washed (by mistake) over 6 times and still sound as good as the first time I tried them. The sound they produce is not groundbreaking but for 30$, you get 30$ worth of sound. Not bad if you get them free with your phone.

    The Best

    I hate justifying the $30 price tag on these, but when it comes to just simple earbuds, these are truly the best. I've tried a few of the less expensive brands and the quality is just trash. If you're not going to splurge on Beats or Bose, then I think these are the best you're going to get on the low end.

    These earbuds can withstand anything. I ran them over with my car and the freaking things still worked. They’ve also gone through the washer and still worked. Apple for the win.

    Ignore the "These break easily" reviews

    I've used these for 8-9 hours a day and have since October of 2014 and even today on March 4th, 2018... There has not even been a drop in sound quality and they're still working fantastically as promised by Apple

    Thumbs Up

    These earbuds are fantastic. It's a shame that some people have such a hard time with these, I have had mine for about 3 years. My earbuds have gone through the washer and dryer MANY times, they catch on door knobs all the time, and when not in my ear they are definitely tangled in my pocket. Many reviewers are complaining about these things, but I certainly haven't had a problem. The right bud doesn't work but that is understandable, when earbuds age, they break, mostly my fault. And the left bud still works great! No rattling or buzzing to be heard. I have also slept with these and contrary to one review I read, my ears were NOT damaged. If these do rupture your eardrums it is due to user error. So turn the volume down a notch, it's alright if a little bit of outside noise comes in. And as far a fit goes, they slide into my ear and stay there, they don't fall out. I also recommend sticking to Apple, knock-offs can be a hit or miss, usually miss. $30 for great quality earbuds that have lasted 3 years, totally worth it

    Great earphones

    I've never had a problem with these EarPods, they almost last for about a year! Every year I upgrade my phone, so I have 3 extra pairs, and the ones I have I've been using since the iPhone 6S! They do not break easily like the people who gave them 1 star. I feel like they cannot take care of their items if they break in a month! They are a tad bit uncomfortable, but after hours of use so that's understandable.
