Apple In-Ear headphones

CY, Crutchfield
3 April 2015
  • Summary: The details of these headphones said, "two drivers in each earbud for clearer highs and deeper bass". Although the highs seemed okay it didn't have the bass that I was expecting. The bass in the out-of-the-box headphones seems better to me. Even with the provided ear tips I couldn't get a good fit.
  • Cons: The sound quality sounds "tinny" to my ear. I don't feel they're worth the money I spent for them.

Strong bass is achieved with right earbuds

  • Summary: I own a $1500 custom monitors from Ultimate Ears. Please read my review of Apple In-Ear Headphones in this perspective. You cannot possibly purchase better-sounding headphones at this price, period. Many reviews here have complained about a perceived lack of bass.

  • Summary: Bought these from an apple reseller store so probably paid over the odds. Sound really clear at the top end, little bit lacking in bass punch, although this is improved with better fitting buds.
  • Pros: tiny size, great carry case, perfect for use with iphone
  • Cons: standard buds not a perfect fit

  • Summary: These are good-sounding 'phones at a very low price. They seem to have a split personality, however. The are more like ear buds trying to be canalphones. The tips are not well designed for they will fall out even with a little wear time.
  • Pros: Dual drivers, low cost, cord length is perfect
  • Cons: Poor fit, poor isolation, unreliable 'clicker'

  • Summary: This review is written from the perspective of the average listener, one who wouldn't have a portable amp and would more than likely use these with their iPod.   Packaging: Out of the various IEMs I've tried out, these were definitely packaged the best.
  • Pros: Comfort, Audio Experience, Packaging, Remote/Mic, Detachable Metal Filters
  • Cons: Color

  • Summary: Included earbuds were horrible for me.  Volume adjustment died and unit had to be replaced by apple (good customer service).  I never had a good seal so can't really comment to much on quality of sound, except I don't feel like they blew me away.
  • Pros: 2 Drivers for a relatively good price
  • Cons: Horrible fit, not emotionally moving

  • Summary: Prelude Apple’s stock earbuds that have been shipped with every iPod since its inception are quite possibly the most prolific and widely distributed tech accessory of all time. It’s hard to go anywhere without seeing a pair of these things dangling from someone’s ears.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Exceptional clarity/transparency for the price, Fairly well balanced
  • Cons: Low end lacks oomph, Sound can be a tad thin,

  • Summary: I paid only $30 for these from eBay. For anyone who isn't a basshead, this is the PERFECT budget IEM for you. Nice detail, controlled bass, treble that doesn't pierce your ears. If you want to try the RE0 but you're not sure if you'd like it, you should start with this.
  • Pros: Apple, cheap, light, has a remote and mic, AMAZING for the price
  • Cons: lots of fakes, isolation is almost non-existant, stock tips have a weird bulb shape

  • Summary: Very nice boxing, very nice item, the volume button and the middle button solves a lots of problems when you are using an MAC device. The MIC quality is impressive. The silicon earbud is really soft.   I recommend it for sure.   Leo Chaves.
  • Pros: price, quality, extra functions
  • Cons: small soft rubber parts need some care to resist longer.

  • Summary: What can I say-- they do their job-- which is to protect my other headphones from use when I need to work out.  They do their job well, but let's face it--  they don't sound very good.
  • Pros: You can sweat all over them
  • Cons: They sound pretty awful
