Wish I'd read the reviews - Just awful

Summary: Thought I'd try these as a change from the standard ear buds, which if you can find an oversize foam cover to put on them so they sit right in the ear are amazingly good for the price. These are quite comfy, but have a thin reedy sound with no bass.
Summary: For £65 and considering they are a Which best buy, I was really expecting these would be a lot better than the standard headphones that come with the iPhone. Sadly they're not. Not even on a par, but actually a lot worse.
Summary: Have twice had to return these headphones as they simply do not work. After about a month, the right ear stopped working completely on both occasions. If you are thinking £65 seems fair for what is bound to be a reasonable product, given that Apple tends not to produce rubbish, don't be fooled.
Summary: Been using them for a year. cons.: -The gray plastic at the end of connector and ear-piece literally rot away, after 6 months of NON frequent use. -No Bass. -The silicon tips keep falling off. -The volume control stopped working as well. -Overpriced. pros.: -They look nice.
A huge apple fan but honestly the worst purchase I've ever made...

Summary: I purchased the headphones less than one month ago and was quite happy with the product even though over priced at £65 in my opinion but hey, then they decided to BRAKE. The headphones were fine for around 2 weeks on till the left ear began to develop a crackle in the the quality, soon after the...
Summary: These headphones cost £65 - but YOU CANNOT REPLACE THE RUBBER END BITS - apple does not sell them and the headphone is smaller than standard brands so other makes do not fit. THIS NOW MEANS THAT 16 WEEKS AFTER SPENDING £65 ON THESE HEADPHONES - I NEED TO THROW THEM AWAY...
Summary: Do not be mislead by the £65 price tag. These headphone are very, VERY poor quality. Apple's own £25 earphones are vastly superior in terms of sound quality. Please don't waste your money (and it is a lot of money)... like I did.
Summary: These ear phones come with different sized silicon ear buds, but they are very easy to lose and are then impossible to replace from Apple. I found the smallest the only size that fits me, and having lost one - and I store my IPod and ear phones in a ziplock bag as they easily pop off - they are...
Summary: Received these as a gift and because they cost so much I felt obliged to try them out. For 65 pounds the sound quality is way below average. Very 'tinny' and as the other reviews say not much in the way of bass. I also find they are not a great fit where other cheaper earphones are.
