    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.

    Apple - EarPods

    Let me start by saying these are not the best earphones. They don't produce high quality sound. They don't do booming bass or noise cancellation. That being said they are great little earphones for the price. I love them. They have a decent sound quality and they block out some noise. Like people talking and the TV if someone in the room is watching something you aren't into. But I tried to use them on a road trip to the beach to listen to podcasts and couldn't really hear it. My mom had her window down but even after she rolled it up it was still hard to hear. I do love these earphones thought. I also love the volume and pause controls that come with the mic. The controls work with all my Apple devices and some non-Apple brands. Some people don't like the "ear form" shape but I love it. The traditional round ones always hurt my ears and would fall out. These are comfy and stay put. They also come with a little hard case which I love. They are really nice earphones for the price.

    Great earbuds

    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.

    Best headphones for daily use

    Apple earpods are the best ones to compliment an iPhone at anytime of the day. The clarity is crystal clear with even the bass and beats making it soothe to your ears. I have had issues with other similar headphones not fitting easily into my ears. But  Earpods fits perfectly fine, easily providing the only required gap between earpods and ear. It fits so perfectly that it doesnt come off when running in gym !! The only small issue is when it gets dangled., when earpods are placed in bag or in pocket. It does take almost 1-2min to untangle the earpods. All in all, it is the best earpods for daily use.

    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.

    I love Apple products for the most part. The design and function are what you expect it to be. Stellar! What I don't like is the lifespan of the EarPods and the lighting cable. Whatever the plastic sheathing that covers the length of the body always wears out. Why aren't they using a better material? Especially for such a high price? This really is the only thing that gives me heartache. I shouldn't need to buy a new one so quickly. I hold my AirPods don't suffer the same from this lack of quality material as well.

    Good, overpriced but our options are limited

    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.

    I bought these for my teenage daughter to replace the pair she broke, which was bought to replace the pair she had lost, which was bought to replace the pair she didn't like, which was bought to replace the pair the cat chewed the cord in half on. I guess they work fine, she wears them with out complaint for usually at least a week before I get the "Dad, I need some more earbuds" statement. I'm hopeful that I'm hired for the 2nd job that I applied for to help keep up with the stream of earbuds I'm probably going to have to buy in the future.

    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.

    Hurts my ears bc I wear earrings

    I’ve only worn these once to run at the gym. I ran for an hour with these on and the sound is okay (with the volume almost all the way up I can still hear people taking around me). The blue tooth feature is great. I always wear earrings and these headphones made my ears really sore due to the rubbing on my ears. The feeling of the headphone on my back of my neck bothered me throughout the run so I have to return them. I’m easily distracted, and these didn’t work for me, but maybe they will work for someone else.

    I've pretty much been a PC and android guy for most of my life. However, in the last 2 years, I've switched to iPhones and now I'm on my first MacBook. I like how everything is easy to setup and customize on windows and androids and the items are just less expensive and affordable. But like most PCs and androids, battery life isn't as great as Apple products are right out of the box. ...Anyways, I was first disappointed with the MacBook Air when I first tried to connect to the internet. Turns out my client ID wasn't accepting my internet router.

    Replacing the original iPhone EarPods

    I bought 2 pairs of EarPods. One pair for my son and one pair for myself. The original EarPods that came with our iPhone gave out after several years and we tried some of the Bluetooth earbuds by other brand companies but they don’t last more than a few months. We both decided to buy a new pair of these and we are both very happy with our purchase. Also they stay put and don’t fall out of my ears while working out at the gym.

    I’m pretty sure these are the same Apple AirPods are the same that came with my iPhone XS Max. They are exactly what I was looking for and knew Best Buy would have them in stock as they sell Apple products. They will work fine until I can decide on what brand and pair of wireless ear plugs I want to go with. I plan to begin riding my bike throughout this historical area I live within. These sound great, or course! Lost my original pair.

    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.

    Great if the shape works for you

    These were so uncomfortable for me. Distracting and painful. The oval shape seems like a good idea but sure didn’t work for me. I tried repeatedly to get used to them with no success. Ultimately ended up using an adaptor that would work with my phone and iPad while using more traditionally shaped, and far more comfortable for me, ear buds. Bottom line: if you buy them, ask if they can be returned in the event you don’t like them.

    Honestly, there are the only in-ear headphones I use. I have tried many, but they stop working fairly soon, at least one side always does. The ones with the plastic removable buds don't work for me because my kids keep losing them. earpods are resistant, sound is good and are pretty comfortable for me. I had to replace mine because I tripped and pulled them (very hard) and they broke, but it was after years of everyday use. I highly recommend these.

    We brought this for our trip to the East coast. I used it to listen to my own books while my daughters were playing those loud pop musics inside the car. I later lent this to my husband because he received so many phone calls. Using this to answer phone calls is so much clearer and better than holding the phone right next to his ears. I took down one star because my husband said he tangled the cord a lot. That might be just him. I think an earpod would solve the tangling problem.

    After purchasing this item I found that the sound quality was very good. It is easy to answer calls with just a click. The ear buds fit easily into the ear and remain without falling out like other ear buds that I have tried. The only problem is that you cannot charge the IPhone when using the ear buds. I use the ear buds while listening to my audiobooks and am able to answer a call and go back to my book with a click using the microphone button.

    These are the same ones that came with my iPhone XR and were replacements when I lost the old pair. They work well and were less expensive than I expected. The "lightening cable" is the new, rectangular connection that is required for the newer iPhones, so you do not need an adapter if you have one of those phones. That could have been more clear in the description for the product.

    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.
