    Don’t buy unless you want to spend lots of money

    • Written by Sofia M from Santa ana

    I can’t believe how these are considering it is an apple product. I got these for 30 dollars and they only last about 6 months. I’ve have at least 4 EarPods that have broken or stop working in a small amount of time.And I’m sure it’s not me that breaks them I take good care of them I don’t really tangle them or do anything that would cause them to stop working. The ones I’m currently using the box on the right earbud were you could pause, turn up and down volume has stopped working and I only bought them in March also I’m starting to hear bits of static and Siri starts turning on and my music keeps pausing. I remember once buying cheap $5 earbuds and they lasted long and good(my mom vacuumed them by accident )and they were much better. I do not recommend these unless you want to constantly buy them. I wish I could get refunds. 100% DO NOT RECOMMEND .

    Most uncomfortable and least noise-canceling

    • Written by Isabella S from Fairfax

    The old design with silicon buds was way more comfortable and noise-canceling. This design doesn’t fit well in ANYONES ear, the shape is odd and painful. Whoever decided to change the design is a moron. I never use these, and I recommend buying a more comfortable earbud and use a dongle, if necessary. I rather use no earbuds than use these pieces of .Bring back the other design, at least as an option because I swear it will do better than this design.

    I alway buy two of these

    • Written by DAVID B from Campbell

    It's always the same failure: one of the earpods stops working. I'm 69, so it's not like they're getting the treatment in the gorilla luggage commercial.

    Built to break

    • Written by Trey D from Provo

    I go through these earbuds like toilet paper, I don’t fling them around, I don’t step on them, they just decide to stop working after six months. I’m righting this review literally ten minutes after the left earbud stopped working. The only reason I keep getting them is because they’re the only cheaper earbuds you can look good using. I’m pretty sure they just don’t care about the manufacturing of their earbuds anymore because they just want you to get AirPods that don’t break like these ones because they don’t have the flimsy wire. But I’m not gonna spend $200 on some plastic overpriced garbage that I’m probably just gonna lose at a party.

    Broke (Again) For No Reason

    • Written by Alexandra O from Milldale

    I bought my most recent pair after the sound in the previous became distorted and I could only hear the background vocals and intrumentals over the main vocals of any songs - this was in January. Now, at the end of April, the same thing has happened to my newer pair. There was no physical trauma to the earbuds besides the general wear and tear any earbuds get from use - they weren't stepped on or anything similar to my knowledge. I merely pulled them out of my book bag and they were no longer working. I did discover that if I hold down the remote, that the music will play normally - but the idea of holding down the button and losing the use of my hand is tiring and troublesome. For a company that prides itself on their latest and coolest technology, their earbuds quite literally are some of the worst I've ever used - especially for such a high price.

    Absolutely Terrible Quality

    • Written by Jordan G from Portsmouth

    I'm currently on my third pair of earbuds and after owning them for no more than three months either one earbud no longer produces sound, the sound quality greatly diminishes, or no sound comes out of them all together. For the amount you pay for these they don't last very long at all.

    Not worth the $ 1/10

    • Written by Whitley P from Huntsville

    Honestly I’m extremely disappointed. They broke within the week of receiving them. Way too fragile and honestly the sound quality is super underwhelming.

    Degraded quality.

    • Written by Pramod N from Rajahmundry

    I used to love this product and have used it for the past 6 years.But the recent one I ordered didn't even last for 4months. Spending 30$ on this is just pure waste. Worst product delivered and pathetic support for this.

    Charger isn't working after ONE use.

    • Written by Ayesha L from Westminster

    I opened these for the first time and the charger cable is not working after a one time use. Seriously. Absolutely ridic and not high quality at all. It's overpriced and I am not happy right now because I have to go to the Apple store and don't even know if they will replace that cable. What a waste of time and money.

    OverPriced EarTrash

    • Written by Anibal L

    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

    • Written by Ilan A from Carbondale

    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.

    Great Sound But DON'T LAST!

    • Written by Greg C from San Jose

    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

    • Written by Emily K from Boston

    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

    • Written by Mariah V from Bakersfield

    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

    • Written by Daniel, Josh, or Rose W from San Diego

    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

    • Written by Kelly T from Seattle

    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.
