  • Summary: Has no where near the bass and quality sound of the EarPods that come with the iPhone 5s. They do fit better, more snug, but not worth $79.

  • Summary: Sound is awesome! Wires are light and don't pull on the earpiece in your ear. Important for running and working out. They stay in my ear...first headphones I don't have to spend more time pushing them back in my ear than I do running or working out. Definitely a must have if you've gone through a few while trying to find the perfect set...these are what you're looking for, hands down!

pricey and it shocks you

  • Excerpt: I got a pair of the apple in-ear headphones for christmas and have been using them for two months. I just recently had to stop using them. After having them replace by the Apple countless times, they were still shocking my ears, especially when using them in the cold New York City weather. I have never had a pair of headphones that caused so much pain. It comes with three pairs of tips in small, medium and large to meet varied ear canal sizes.

Terrible

  • Excerpt: I hate the style, for starters. I like the buds that just rest in your ears, the ones that used to be the only kind that existed and were flawless in design and delivery of high quality music. None of this noise-cancelling nonsense existed and they didn't fall out of your ears nonstop. On top of that, they were actually comfortable, unlike this version. These ones in particular are terrible in sound quality.

Great, but expensive

  • Summary: I bought these buds because my awesome Sony MDR EX310LP's wouldn't fit the LifeProof case for the iPhone, plus they have the handy clicker. If you have these, hear Undisclosed Desires of Muse, it is the type of music to hear perfectly with these buds.
  • Pros: incredibly rich sound compared to the stock iPod buds plus clicker and volume (which work with my iPhone 4)
  • Cons: A bit low on bass, and the cord feels kind of cheap for the price I had to pay.

Great for classical musicians and balanced sound

Carlheanerd, CNET

  • Summary: I bought these headphones used and have not regretted the purchase. As a classical musician, I am sensitive to my chooses in audio equipment and like to chose products that provide a balanced sound, true to the recording. These headphones do exactly that, with clear highs, defined mids, and a tight bass. If you are a bass-head that likes overly boomy and out of proportion bass, this is not the product for you.
  • Pros: Good sound isolation, balanced sound with clarity in all registers, tight bass, design, Apple product integration, carrying case
  • Cons: Chord can make noise if you move a lot, occasional soreness from in-ear design

Fantastic Headphones

  • Summary: Apple's in-ear headphones are using Balanced Armatures with a sub woofer and tweeter in both headphones. First thing you notice are the sounds are so clear and crisp and this means your going to hear every little bit of your song. And bass response is great for Balanced Armatures but don't expect booming bass with this, there are no actual drivers to move the air and produce the deep lows.

Not bad but I expected more

HinoMusouka, CNET

  • Summary: Those I my first in-ear headphones and I bought them as they were advertised as being double-driver headphones for a cheap price. I am not an audiophile so I mostly preferred supplied headphones or spent no more than $50 for simple Sennheiser's or AKG's. Still I can't get used to in-ears. I hear my every breath and every step - the cord clutter is also disconcerting, but I suppose this was to be expected considering no previous experience with this type headphones.
  • Pros: Cheap and clear double-driver construction, appealing Apple design, comfortable.
  • Cons: Rubbing noise on each move, weak bass.
