    Worst ever

    • Written by Rebecka H from Uppsala

    I buy them and instantly regret it every time. Not only are they overpriced, but they break within the first few months of using them. I bought mine at the end of January and they are already broken even though I've been extra careful with them. Don't waste your money on these.

    Very good

    • Written by Reaber S from Edinburgh

    I really recommend these earphones mainly due to the sound quality and affordable price! Bass sound is reasonably crisp and sharp with no distractions from irritating background noise etc. Would recommend upgrading to the airpods as they are the same but better and most importantly with no wires!

    Great durability, Little bit over priced.

    • Written by Adam T from Gateshead

    Love these earphones to pieces, I'm still using the ones from my 6s (that I bought when it came out in Sept 2015) and they're still working perfectly.

    I still have two pairs that came with my 10 and 10s but they have the lightning connector on them and are still in the box I just use the 3.5mm to lightning adaptor that came with the iPhone 10.

    Great sound quality but like all Apple in/over ear headphones they are bass heavy and should only be used for listening to music NOT for producing it.

    Overall they're great for day to day listening and the only downside is the price. In my opinion, they should be a maximum of £25.

    Truly awful

    • Written by Ian T from London

    The build quality of these headphones it truly awful! I have used many pairs of these over the years - each came with the iPhone. They all broke within a short time of usinging them. The lates pair, however, broke within 1 day of usage. The sound cuts out every time the wire moves. Which consisting it moved almost constantly while on the go means they are as good as useless!

    I bought this product a WEEK ago and now I can not hear out of the left ear plug. I have only used them to walk to and from college for about 5 minutes each day. I would NOT recommend buying these as they are way over priced and break very quickly!!!!!!!! disappointed

    Perfect fit but awful durability

    • Written by Stuart S from Ipswich

    This is the first time I've complained about an Apple product. I used to use cheap earphones that never gave me any issues, but then these beautifully fitting EarPods arrive. But without fail I need to call for a replacement or buy a new pair. I'm sure I've purchased nearly 10 pairs over the last couple of years, spending around '£300 in the process.

    Bought about 5 pairs in total

    • Written by Elliot M from East Yorkshire

    Absolutely disgraceful. I’ve bought about 5 pairs in total and 3 of the 5 times, it’s due to the faulty wiring that connects the jack to the earphones themselves. The other 2 times, the left EarPod has stopped working for no apparent reason. I treated all of them with care.
    You need to put more effort into the EarPods.

    Quality very poor -DONT BUY GO ELSEWHERE

    • Written by sarah C from Hornchurch

    I can't believe I paid 29.00 for these. When I got a pair with my iPhone they were much better quality but I lost these. These have cheap cable, the plug keeps coming lose from the iPad socket which then makes the video buffer and makes clicking noises in my ear. I have only had these earphones one day. Please don't buy and take heed of the reviews which I stupidly did not and don't buy them. You get get better quality and for a cheaper prices if you shop elsewhere. APPLE FIX UP YOU ARE RIPPING PEOPLE OFF CHARGING THIS AMOUNT FOR THESE EAR PHONES!

    Worth the money - if you get them free with another device

    • Written by James B from Yatton

    They are hard and uncomfortable and don't block any external sounds so useless for anything other than silent environments

    Break quickly

    • Written by Grace L from Nottingham

    I’ve had my pair of Apple earphones 3 weeks and they’re broken already!
    I’ve not dropped them, and I have kept them safe in their container, yet they still break.
    They still play music, but the control panel on the earphone itself (including the microphone and the volume setting) has stopped working. Not happy especially considering the price of these earphones.

    Not the best

    • Written by Ebru G from Luton

    They work great but they break really easily. I had my earphones in and dropped my phone and the drop was about half a metre, on a carpeted floor, yet the plug completely tore off. Considering I paid £30 for them and had only used them for two weeks I am disappointed.

    Completely uncomfortable, and they never stay in my ears, average sound quality and overpriced for what they are- avoid.

    Cable is too thin and fragile

    • Written by Daria Z from Rugby

    Just recently got the iPhone 8 plus. Very happy with the phone. However the outer layer of the headphones has broken already- revealing all the cables inside. In my opinion the cable is too fragile and thin!

    These EarPods are just amazing, the quality of sound is just astonishing. At first I thought that these will not stay in my ears properly, but once tried on, omg its like a never ending bond that connected me to these EarPods also as it turns out they sit in my ears with no problem and to add to that their so comfortable. I cant live without them. Very much recomended.

    • Written by Rosie T from Amersham

    Although I am overall thoroughly impressed by the quality of sound that these earphones produce, they are not durable at all. I use my earphones daily, however, they will only last me a couple of months before either one earphone stops working or they have blown. This is a great inconvenience for me because it means that every 2-3 months I am having to spend nearly £30 on earphones.

    Great headphones

    • Written by Lenka C from Chatham

    I love these headphones! They got a little bit of time to get used to but now I can't live without them. Unfortunately, I am having to buy a new pair as the left ear eventually stopped working (I wore them out :) but they lasted a decent amount of time. The quality of the sound is also really obvious now that I am having to use non-apple headphones so I am definitely buying again! Thanks Apple :)

    Poor Quality

    • Written by Jonathan K from Stretford

    Not worth the money. Fall apart within a few weeks. I have a £4 pair of earphones from a bargain bucket in Tesco that work better, last longer and stay in my ears better. Total rip off.

    Being the student I am I had a pile of washing the approximate size of the empty pot noodles tubs in my recycling. Needless to say I had to do three loads of washing one after the other as I had gotten tired of wearing a towel around the flat. Bet you know where this is going, huh? Chucked my jeans in at the last minute because I couldn't for the life of me remember when I'd washed them last and putting them in the freezer no longer helped. Well yeah just so turns out my earphones were in the pocket of said jeans. I opened the washer door and they flopped out limp and lifeless - but very clean I have to admit (kudos to washing machine) Anyway I put them on the radiator with no hope they were salvable but I wanted to make an effort you know? They've served me well. Well put them in my iPhone 6 this morning out of curiosity- half expecting the electric shock of my life - and guess what, WORKED PERFECTLY. CLEAN AS A WHISTLE AND WORKS LIKE A CHARM. Although I don't advise this way of cleaning your earphones it's nice to know Apple don't skimp on the quality.
