Apple - EarPods with Lightning Connector - White

Unlike traditional, circular earbuds, the design of the EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphones. The speakers inside the EarPods have been engineered to maximize sound output and minimize sound loss, which means you get high-quality audio. The EarPods with Lightning Connector also include a built-in remote that lets you adjust the volume, control the playback of music and video, and answer or end calls with a pinch of the cord.

    I use my iPhone for music when I ride my Dressage horses. They're very powerful and power up from behind. For years I was dealing with headphones popping out of my ears and breaking because of it. Then I ended up trying these from Apple. They're unbeatable. I love them as they stay in even with my high powered horses. And I love the fact that they have a cord so I don't have to worry about losing them near the horses. I live with these on my phones 24 hours each day. Down at the barn I always have to worry about losing things and yes, people have suggested blue tooth. I find these have better sound than the blue tooth ones I've tried and I've tried many different brands. These last and are the ones I have to hope will remain around for a long time. Sound is great and the number one win for me, they remain in my ears while I ride my high powered Dressage horses. I realize most people don't understand the amount of power my horses work with, all I can say - - I want no other ear pods hands free head phones ever.

    What can I say about Apple products. They rock!! They're a fresh, clean, white color, traditional of other apple accessories, which lends to them looking extremely dirty. Look at it as a reminder that you should maybe clean your stuff sometimes. Because ew, maybe you should clean your stuff. The ergonic design of these particular earbuds fits perfectly in my ear like it was MADE for the ear. Apple knows how to develop products for their intended use. The sound quality was as good as listening to it through Apple earbuds on my iPhone. Third pair though...no matter how hard I try, the life of my Apple EarPods ends up in a tangled mess, not unlike that of that one "black sheep" in the family that seems to be drawn to self destruction. But, you know...you still keep inviting him to family gatherings, hence this purchase.

    Great headphones with a slight problem

    Everybody knows that phone accessories don't last forever. So when my original iPhone EarPods broke, I purchased the same ones. I love the bass quality, the clarity, and the design. I gave it four stars because I do have a problem with the little remote. Sometimes, I press it three times (to restart a song) and it only registers two clicks. Or sometimes I hear a little pop, then the remote stops working. All I have to do is unplug and plug it in again, and it works again. However, this could be a software issue with my iPhone (iPhone 8 Plus), or just these specific headphones I got this time. These are still my favorite type of earphones.

    Having recently acquired an iPhone 7+, I essentially obsoleted all my other head/ear-phones. Apple removed the 3.5 headphone jack meaning you need to either use Bluetooth or something that connects through the lightning connector. That is unless you can remember to bring with you the included one adapter which I keep with my high end noise canceling set. The sound is just average. Of course being made by Apple means all the controls work as expected. I do enjoy the longer cable length so us tall people can keep our phones in our pockets and still have enough to keep comfortably in our ears. My advice grab a set or two as backups on sale.

    Lacks versatility

    I bought these earbuds quickly one evening and did not realize they were the new type with the lightning connector. I needed a set so I kept them. I don't think they are any better quality than the type with the old standard connector. I have found that there are times when I want to listen and charge the battery at the same time, but this can't be done with these. I am also realizing they won't work in other devices that have the standard plug-in connector, like airplanes. So my three stars reflects a lack of versatility rather than quality.

    These are the best ear buds ever. Yes, I have had $150 ear buds and the sound was phenomenal. Nonetheless, the sound with these is perfectly fine. The price is negligible but I love the fit and the unbelievable durability. I am, by no means, gentle with my ear buds. I wear them to the gym everyday (sweating), mountain biking, kayaking, etc. My only issue is how easily they get ear wax built up in them - of course that could be a personal problem. :-) I just keep cleaning them.

    Apple ear buds are not great sounding. I don't think they're particularly good looking either. And if the iPhone 8 switched to USB-C as rumored (as the latest MacBooks are...), these ear buds may not have a long life unless they make a Lightning to USB-C adapter. They're the most readily available of the Lightning ear buds are are usable. Compared to better buds, they are a bit muddy, lacking clarity in the mids and bass varies on how deep in your ear they go. Usable but not great, maybe a little over priced because Apple.

    Replacement Apple ear buds

    These are a replacement for the ear buds my son got with his phone. He likes the style, fit, and controls. I'm neutral about their ability to withstand use by a teenage boy (can anything stand up to that? ). I rated these neutral because I don't like the lightning port that requires specific accessories and I think these are over priced. I realize we could use an adapter but that is small and likely to be lost.
