A great value for free, but your smartphone really deserves better.

Summary: Really solid for what they are. Don't expect exceptional sound quality from these headphones - they probably cost apple a few pennies to make each pair. With that said they are about par on sound quality with ~$20 earbuds, and sound pretty clear for all kinds of music. Pretty comfortable too. Volume buttons are nice and convenient, but the cord is only about 3ft long. I'd really like to see Apple "think outside the box" a little more with the headphones in the future.
Summary: I bought this product assuming it would last as long as the apple headphones I got with my iPhone.. They deteriorated much more quickly and I'm not sure whether it was my personal use, which didn't seem any different than normal, or the product.
Summary: Received them in time. Package ok. But I used to listen to music every day with Apple earphones without mic and those doesn't sound as great as real original ones. You will notice the wires coating, not "jelly like" Silicon coated as the original. Flexibility of the wire is not as great ... Deceived.
