  • Overview

    Unlike traditional, circular earbuds, the design of the EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphones.

    The speakers inside the EarPods have been engineered to maximise sound output and minimise sound loss, which means you get high-quality audio.

    The EarPods with Lightning Connector also include a built-in remote that lets you adjust the volume, control the playback of music and video, and answer or end calls with a pinch of the cord.

      Not as good as the old ones

      A pair of these came with my iPhone 7, they don't sound as good as the old EarPods which came with my 6s. Very disappointed.

      Adequate sound but ultimately a downgrade

      music will randomly pause due to connection being lost in your pocket.

      I personally love these earphones, the sound is crisp and clear! I have tried a wide range of headphones before and believe that this is one of the best! ❤️

      Extremely Happy With This Item

      Very happy with my earphones! I wasn’t sure to buy this product of apple or not due to the bad reviews, but I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them! And went ahead Very happy with my earphones! I wasn’t sure to buy this product of apple or not due to the bad reviews, but I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them! And went ahead and bought them :) the sound is perfect, very loud :) and I got them a few days early than expected which was great. I’ll definitely be buying from apple again! Was surprised by the way that they posted the item out as this is my first time buying from them :)

      They have been loyal to me, until my daughter swiped them

      I was nearly not going to bother with a new pair, reading all these 1 star reviews, but then I checked in with John Lewis. You guys writing horrid reviews are I was nearly not going to bother with a new pair, reading all these 1 star reviews, but then I checked in with John Lewis. You guys writing horrid reviews are either very heavy handed with these headphones, as I have had mine for over year with none of the issues you have been describing, or you are just miserable moaners. I am not replacing due to breakage, just simply buying a new pair as my daughter lost hers and took mine to listen to an audio book on the bus on her way to school. I think they are brilliant, great sound and I am looking forward to purchasing another pair, but from John Lewis. They have a full house of 5 stars with their reviews. Pays to shop around, I guess!

      Needs to be redesigned

      The one that came with the phone were prone to the cutting in and out mentioned in other comments and lasted about 9 months before ceasing to function, they wer The one that came with the phone were prone to the cutting in and out mentioned in other comments and lasted about 9 months before ceasing to function, they were replaced under warranty. The replacements lasted about 4 months, they are used a lot but used with care. I will try and get them replaced under warranty again but that is a 58 mile round trip + parking so almost the cost of replacing them. On a second phone the same has happened and the lightning to jackplug adaptor also broke. Really not good enough whatever happened to Apple's reputation for robust high quality design and engineering? I started with Apple on an Apple 1 as a university student and have had loads of machines from performa, to powermac, Apple Newton, digital camera, various laptops, servers, iMacs, iPods, iPads, iPhones, most were brilliant innovative and robust but i am really disappointed with the drop in standards over the last few years, my iPad Pro lasted til a few weeks out of guarantee and we have been through loads of headphones in the last 3 years.
