Summary: These highlight how good Apple's earpods actually are. By comparison, the Panasonic headphones feel cheap and nasty. The remote control is awful, unfortunately. As others have said, the buttons are just little hard rubbery nubbins.
Summary: OMG! I have had this pair of earphones for way over a year now and believe it or not they are still working, the quality on these are amazing. The first thing I realised after putting them on is the comfort and its ability to fit perfectly inside my ear canal, the music quality is also phenomenal...
Summary: These earphones work even better than the default earphones i got with my smartphone and they have lasted me for quite some time now with no problem whatsoever regarding connection, volume and comfort.
Summary: I bought these to be able to use the remote control - mainly for volume and skipping tracks. I didn't take into consideration that it had a mic which I suppose if I'd thought it out, has to be near the mouth. The remote is about 4 inches from your ear so you cannot see what button you're pressing.
