Summary: Don't get me wrong I enjoy the sound of these things, but not the sound of the things around me. These earpods just don't cancel any outside sounds... I have to be somewhere quiet to really listen to my tunes... I need earphones that blast my music and cancel the other sounds, and these just don't get the job done...
Summary: These actually hurt one of my ears like crazy, and they both fall out at the least movement. Sorry for the one star, these earbuds deserve a negative. Ok, the sound is good, but that hardly matters if you can't stand to use them. I hardly ever write reviews, but these really upset me. I don't think I have abnormal ears, seriously. I liked the simple little old ones, bring them back please!
Summary: I was a bit shocked at how good these are after the previous design that lacked mid-lows and was uncomfortable for prolonged use. These are very good overall and EXCELLENT in their price point. By far the best under 30. maybe the best under 80. If you have 100 to burn there are better options. But cheers Apple. Great job on this re-design. Now get busy on those 'in-ear' model as they are lesser sound quality than these.
Hey... It only took a decade of complaints, but...

Summary: FINALLY! Someone listened. These are a great improvement... A great sounding, comfortable set of earbuds for a reasonable price. Hey, at $30... It's just darned cheap for Apple. Someone must have spiked Oppenheimer's punch. Maybe now is a good time to ask for that second button on the track-pad back. I know, I know. Lord Ive and his one button to rule them all. But sometimes... Just sometimes, you need ANOTHER BUTTON, Jony.
Summary: Not only are these a huge advance in sound from the previous generation, but these are super durable! These EarPods can take a beating. Mine were submerged in freezing water, put into an industrial dryer, and my dryer numerous times. But they still work perfectly! I would recommend these to anyone with an Apple Product, these are great!
Summary: I don't know what kind of ears u ppl have that said these things are comfortable. really?? I hate the design! it hurts my ears so bad that I had to buy some foam covers. it's ok as long as they're on there. my bf said the same thing about his - painful! apple why don't u sell the old design anymore?? they were the most comfortable long wearing ear buds. the only saving grace for these new things is the volume is better. but that may also be due to upgrading to the 5c.
Summary: They sound good, but if you are going to stay literally on bed to hear music, because as soon as you move your face, they will fall off, TERRIBLE DESIGN! I am really surprised, they said they are made specially for the human ear, well, am I a dog? You can not keep them in your EARS!!!!! for more than 3 seconds.
