I love the sound (and I'm a professional musician)

Summary: Love the fit and the sound. Most earbuds are too big for my ears, painful to wear. The sound is great. I have no idea why people say the silicon buds fall off, I've never had that experience and I wear them a LOT. Maybe they chose the wrong size out of the three that come with the earphones? Just a guess.
Summary: These are truly worth the 90 Dollars I paid for them. First off, let me just say that the review that say the bass is weak are wrong. The sound is actually balanced without boosting a single frequency. The sound is wonderfully accurate and the tone is very accurate. I highly recommend these as they are truly worth the money.
Summary: I used to use a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which came with some really good in-ear headphones. However, I got an iPhone 4s to replace it because of a carrier switch. I still liked the in-ears but they wouldn't be able to control an iPhone so I decided to turn to Apple to find some. These are what I bought, and they're exactly the same sound quality and comfort as the Samsung ones, and they can control an iPhone because that's what they were designed for.
Summary: People who complain about the Bass level are clearly overrating it. Low-quality headphones trade crispness and clarity for loudness and it has nothing to do with "quality". Apple's headphones deliver a close-to-input sound. I had them for almost 3 years and I have recently lost the button functionality and sometimes the sound disappears (obviously the cord is broken). I haven't lost a single cap. The only concern was the quality of rubber around the junctions.
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. These headphones come with middle-size earbuds installed. Upon purchase, I immediately tried these headphones on a treadmill and strong disappointed with lack of bass and insufficient noise isolation.
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. I find a medium Sennheiser but/tip a perfect fit, but with these, the medium bud is a little small and falls out easily, and the large is just too big. I went for the highly rated Comply Foam tips which were £15 for 3 pairs and are superb. They discolour with ear wax though :( .
Pros: tiny size, great carry case, perfect for use with iphone
