    Excellent headphones for the price

    • Written by Layton A from SANTA CLARA

    I've gone through my fair share of headphones, and for the cost I think these put out some great sound. I'm a cyclist, and so I absolutely need to hear what's going on around me, and since these don't block out sound like the gel buds do I'm able to still listen to music and phone calls easily while simultaneously hearing my surroundings. The little buttons on the cord are also really easy to use while on the bike. I'm ordering a new pair today after over 3 years of abuse. They've been with me while I've done gardening, cycling (in all the elements), relaxing in the backyard, etc. I've tried to keep them clean and water free this whole time, but dirt, sweat, and rain sometimes got to them. The headphones still put out great sound today, but after the 3 years the little buttons are starting to go, and I can no longer change volume, answer calls, skip songs, etc. I highly recommend these headphones.

    They work after you wash them

    • Written by Allison D from Salinas

    I accidentally threw my headphones and adaptor in the washing machine with my laundry and the drier as well. I did not notice u til I took my clothes out and they came along with it. Tried them on and once again they worked perfectly fine. I’ve probably accidentally thrown them into the washer like 3 times now.

    Very Amazing if you have EQ app

    • Written by Tom B from Fremont

    By itself, the EarPods give very respectable Treble and Mid-range performance, but the Sub-bass isn't as stellar. If you use it in conjunction with an EQ app giving the 50hz frequency a boost of 9dB it will sound absolutely amazing, especially when you're listening to Hip-Hop tracks with lots of bass.

    Earpods

    • Written by Alex T from Granger

    My experience with the EarPods. I love them because of the sound is so good. I use them when I go for the walks outside because they let the outside world go into my ears like my normal ears do. I'm visually impaired and that is why I have to use them.

    great

    • Written by Emmet P from Portland

    I have had these headphones for about 18 months. They work great. Microphone works great. They've been through the wash at least four times (! because I have a habit of leaving them in my pocket when doing laundry) and they still work great. I really like that they have a button on the right side to change the volume, pause, skip. Exactly what I need.

    Great!

    • Written by Mason P from Lombard

    Personally I have always used Apples headphones. These used to not fit my ears, but after a while they fit perfectly! The EarPods that came with my iPhone are the ones I use. I didn't buy a separate pair. They have been dropped in water and had the cable almost snap. They deliver decent sound as well if you watch YouTube or listen to Spotify. They are a little pricey, but that's just because Apple is a premium brand that can do that. Otherwise their the best earphones I have ever had!

    Best of its kind

    • Written by Julian M from Santa Fe

    I hope they never stop making these regular jack corded headphones.

    Ergonomics: The cord helps me while I bike or am out in public. I run them under my shirt and so I can quickly pop them out of my ears and they dangle from the top of my shirt neck-hole. I can have one in and leave the other dangle so I can hear both the headphone and the sounds of my environment. Obviously this is also helpful for working out, shopping, or other places I don't want my earbuds to fall out or I need to have only one in and be able to hear everything around me. The mic on the cord is for volume and pausing and phone calls. It really is a basic and classic design. My voice sounds best with this mic and you don't need to hold it up to your mouth. It's hands-free. For these perks of the cord, I avoid wireless. Personally they never fall out of my ears. I can run with them in and they don't come out.

    Sound: They have balanced mids and as expected with earbuds have clear highs. Bass will surprise you. They are not over-ear headphones. I've tried other earbuds and I like this balance the most. Have you ever gotten that very unequal-feeling range from headphones--like they were trying to be bass-boosting? These don't have it. For on-the-go, these are great. I've always had these and a pair of deep-listening headphones I wear at home.

    Quality: For me, Apple phone chargers crack and fray way before these. I have never had a pair of these earbuds crack or fray. Longest I've had them was 7 years. No cracking or fraying. The shotty connection in the cord happened with this pair at 7 years. I found lint in my headphone jack on my phone. I'm not sure if that was the headphones or my jack input. All in all, $30 for 7 years just seems like good luck? They are solid. This was with heavy use and in and out my pockets. Keep the headphone jack facing up in your pocket and you'll be fine.

    Customer Service: In my experience, there was a period of time where they got a bad batch. Other reviews will say muffled or the jack/cord connection is bad. My connection started failing at 7 years. Again, it was partially that I had a dirty input connection with lint in it. (End of the day, it's $30 and probably the best $30 ear buds you will find.)
    I once bought a pair that seemed muffled. I noticed it right away and returned them. This was in around 2015/2016. They took the return because I noticed it right away rather than having the problem grow on me or appear suddenly after the return period, though. No problems with my 2017 pair. If anything is wrong with a product, report it right away and don't be mad, just be honest. Apple has always been happy to work with me. It's objective not subjective.

    Thanks all. Apple, please keep making these. Very good.

    Awesome headphones

    • Written by Bernadette I from East Elmhurst

    I've been using these headphones for years! I hope they never stop selling them. I don't understand why they have such a bad review. They sound great, feel comfortable, last a few years at a time and these never fall out of my ears unlike all other headphones! They rock!

    Best I’ve Tried

    • Written by Kate B from Harleysville

    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!

    Awesome headphones

    • Written by Emily D from Port Washington

    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.

    Durable

    • Written by Melissa C from Venice

    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!

    Amazing earphones

    • Written by Gabriel C from East Syracuse

    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.

    The Best

    • Written by Timi J from Philadelphia

    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.

    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
