Summary: Even coming with three sizes of of "ear gasket", using the smallest I'm afraid these headpohones still don't fit comfortably, and the 'seal' it creates on the ear is terrible. If you work out and sweat, it becomes even more atrocious, and as you adjust the headphones, the gaskets slip out of place; they're keyed to the headphone, but they don't stay in place. I am fairly dissatisfied with these In Ear headphones, and would not recommend them to anyone.
Summary: i was so excited when i found these lanyard headphones had been marked down from $50 to 14.77...then i found out why..no matter what size ear cover you use they just don't stay in your ear!! i still like the idea of the ipod hanging around your neck, but i think i am going back to my original ear buds and might try a arm band..
Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic: Not Apple's standard.

Summary: I have had a pair of Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic for the past year or so and I have to say that I really don't think they live up to what I've come to expect from an Apple product. They cost me £55.00 from Amazon - although I have seen them in the Apple shop for £66. I feel that the cost of the earphones is certainly very expensive and I think, as most Apple products, that are priced higher than they really should be.
Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic: A VERY POOR HEADPHONE FOR THE PRICE I PAID £69!!!

Summary: I made my purchase at my local Apple retail store. I was assured that these headphones would be of superior sound quality and an upgrade from the standard ones that are issued free with the iPhone. I must say I was very disappointed with the sound quality I was expecting some very superior sound with a nice bass and it to be crystal clear.
Pros: Nice, cool, sophisticated design
Cons: Headphones keep coming loose when walking, not great audio quality, too pricey!!!
Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic: Apple In-Ear headphones
2 May 2011
Summary: These were my first in-ear headphone purchase, and I think they are also going to be the last - and not for a good reason. They have a very similar design to the original apple headphones that come with most of their portable products. They are typically apple in design, clean and simple, that may or may not be your idea of a good design, but in my eyes headphones should not really be a fashion accessory.
Summary: Since buying my Ipod about 6 months ago for £115 (from apple's online store), I've had to replace my headphones about 3 times, the first two included a replacement pair of the original standard Apple headphones and my latest pair being the new Apple In-ear headphones with remote and mic. After admitting defeat and taking out my frustration on my last pair, (...and a long calm down period) I realized I had some shopping to do.
Pros: Better fitted, seal out most external noise.
Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic: Does it's job well, but not for long

Summary: If you're shopping for Apple, you are most certainly expecting quality. With the development of such iconic things like the iPod, the Apple Mac and the iPhone, how could a company deliver anything less than full scale efficiency and style? Well, these headphones are a bit of a mixed bag. The expected style and elegance is present but durability certainly is not. After having these headphones a month, and paying a hefty price for them, the left headphone just came apart!
Pros: Great mic, well designed ear buds
Cons: terrible durability and ridiculously expensive
Summary: Not sure what I am doing wrong, but regardless of what size caps I put on them, they slowly come out of my ears, and unless they are rammed in the sound is really tinny. I also find that the microphone isn't that good, and people find it hard to hear me. When the headphones are in, the sound is really good... they just never stay in. Any hints?
