Apple EarPods Review


After 11 long years, Apple finally decided it was time to update its ubiquitous white earbuds. During its September 12 launch event, Apple introduced the EarPods, calling attention to all the design and engineering efforts that had gone into their...

Considerably improved bass ; Slightly better short-term comfort ; Slightly larger in-line control microphone

Hot and brittle treble ; Midrange sucked out ; Still uncomfortable for long-term use

When all is said and done, Apple’s new EarPods are an improvement on the earbuds they replace, but only marginally so.

Apple EarPods


After 11 long years, not counting a very minor mid-cycle update, Apple has finally completely redesigned its trademark white earphones that come bundled with every iPod and iPhone. And with good results. In fact, Apple may have achieved the impossible:...

Great sound for the price. Surprisingly strong bass considering it's not an in-canal design. Inexpensive. Includes small carrying case

Design still doesn't fit everyone. Doesn't block out any external noise and some sound leaks out

Apple's new EarPods are the better-fitting, better-sounding earbuds iPods and iPhones should have had all along.

Nope! Just not true, Scott. I own a ton of Apple products and love ‘em. I repeat: LOVE them. The EarPods, however, are just not a good earphone, even at $20 let alone $30. I think we all get that they are OEM and not intended to be awesome performers,...

Digital Trends despises Apple and Apple products – Surprise!

They ROCK!


I'm a 50+ year old gal who still loves hard rock music(AIC). These earpods ROCK! When they say they rival high end headphones, they mean it. I heard sounds in my music I didn't hear w/oth equip. You can head bang, dance, and lay down w/them in, etc....

The Earpods have a surprisingly strong bass, reminding me of the Philips L1. The midrange is quite good with no obvious colorations or nasality etc. Highs are generally good, but if any EQ is applied to tone down the bass, the highs may sound a bit...

My son loves them. He wants me to order more just in case he loses them. Great product!

These feel so much nicer in my ears than other earbuds. One of them still hurts my ear, I must have a small space, but these were cheaper than at other stores by a few cents.
