Summary: I have bought an iPhone 5 in September of last year and they came with the EarPods, after six or so months they broke. I bought a new pair 13 months later and they broke again; doing nothing wrong here, they keep breaking. Love the sound; but can't stand the quality of plastic used to keep the wires safe in side. They just curl up and the wires break and the sound starts to crackle. Fix this Apple!
Summary: This pair of EarPods were ok. I loved the shape and fit. They stayed in my ears great, but after less than a year, the sound in the left ear went out. I always got the cheaper earbuds because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on them, but the sound in one ear always went out pretty fast. I decided to "splurge" and get these, and I loved them....then the sound went out in one ear....just like the cheap ones. I'm really disappointed and out $30.
Summary: The sound is absolutely fantastic, but I seem to be having problems with the remote buttons. The "play/pause" button works just fine, but the volume buttons don't. Now I've only tried it with my new 5s but I would think that should be the last of the problems...any ideas...?
Summary: These are a great fit in my ears and the sound quality is awesome! However, mine broke after just four months. I use them at least five times a week when I go running and sometimes in the car if I'm talking on the phone and don't want to use my hands. I was very careful and always kept them stored neatly, and away from moisture when they weren't being used. I don't know why they broke, but I'm bummed they did! Loved them.
Summary: the sound of the earpods are great and the size is perfect for my ears. but the remote is so not sensitive that every time i try to turn up or turn down the volume or change the song i have to press VERY hard for it to sense me. and sometimes even when i press very hard it still doesn't work. i dont know if every earpod has this problem or just mine. but i think a product of apple should never be so dull like this.
Summary: I want to start by saying that I love the sound and shape of these headphones. They sound amazing and the headphones fit in my ear so that they are loose enough to easily remove, but tight enough that they don't just fall out of my ears when moving around. However, there is a major performance flaw in these headphones. This has happened with both of the two pairs I have had. The audio volume in the right headphone gradually gets quieter.
