These work as intended. They also last a long time. My last pair which is probably 5 years old or so and were still working good until I partially broke them. I fixed them with super glue and are still working for the most part. But I figured at this low price I can’t go wrong getting another set. I will admit sound wise I would say they are basic. They sound ok if that is the stsndard you have for earphones. The sound won’t blow you away, but they do the job. But I am not looking for top shelf sound. Just looking for something that allows me to listen on the occasion when I need to use earphones. For me these are 5 stars as they do everything I need them to, sound good enough, and are fairly durable.
If you are too lazy to read my essay then I will give a quick rundown:REAL Product – They are real apple earbuds, durable and people are lyingFit / Comfort – They will fit small ears amazingly and feel like nothing is there, big ears not so muchSound – Low end and mid is great. Nothing special, high end slightly lacking but its barely noticableDurability – Lasted me for 1.5 years so far, tough and will survive water (swimming, washing machine)Damage – None. They were perfect and still are right out the boxMic – Dont get for a mic. Its in the speakers themselves and are too quiet, but they are in 2 channels igTangling – They do get tangled but they are easy to untangleOverall – 9.5/10, get if you have small or average ears, they feel like nothing is in your earFULL DETAILED REVIEW:Im writing this to discourage the negative reviews that I see way too much about these things. They are REAL apple made products. They did not come used, broken, or anything. I bought these as I wanted some actual good earbuds that would last. I have used the samsung ones for about 2 years when I broke them, so I tried apple. I found some laying around in school (ik its gross) washed em, and they worked great. Sound quality is actually very good for earbuds, however I havent used any super expensive headphones that would blow me away and make these sound terrible in comparison. The low end or “bass” is very important to me and thankfully it is pretty loud, nothing outstanding or anything though. The High end is kindof lacking but not much, still sounds great. Mid sound is loudest, not overwhelming though, pretty good. Anyway, I lost those, so I ordered them, on Amazon. They came early, unused, undamaged, and they sound great. No complaints and they have lasted me for nearly a year. Now an issue you might have with these buds if at all are 2 things: Fit and Comfort. These will not fit everybody’s ears, escpecially big ones. However, they fit in mine perfectly and within a minute I forget I even have anything in my ear, but thats just me. 2 is comfort, which some people have issues with. I think these are incredibly comfortable with the non-silicon tips. They dont hurt, but maybe thats just me. I hate the silicon tips, but some people dont. Either way, you can get used to them. Other things to mention; you can drown these in water or leave them in the wash accidentally and they will work fine. As long as their not in deep water for like over an hour, they should still work. also, Tangling is not a big problem with these. They definetly do get tangled, but they are very easy to ungtangle unlike other buds. Lastly, Microphone. I would not recomment these if you need them to have a good mic. I was surprised to test these and find out the Volume controller that has a mic label on it isnt actually a mic, the phones themselves are. And they are weird. They are wayyyyy too quiet and each but has its own channel, so you can talk into say the left bud and whoever is recieving your mic signal will hear only out the left headphone. You also have to have it so close to your mouth that you are pretty much making out with it. Besides that, they are amazing. Some people with love them, others will hate. If you have small ears, I recomment these. They come in a nice little box too. They will feel like nothing is there. 9.5/10 earbuds in my opinion. Best earbuds I have ever used. GET THEM

I’ve had several sets of bad headphones. Didn’t feel good in my ears. On-cable control didn’t work. Sound in only one ear. But I finally found this set that works great in all respects! Very happy with the fit and performance with my phone. Plus I got the adapter to use with my computer and that works fine too.

small, compact, old school jack for camera monitoring on the go, perfect. good price and quality. Been using these for years now and always buy a new one when a pair busts overtime 😀

I really like the controls on the ear pieces. Down side could be a little bit more comfortable.

What first I’ve seen that it look and hold them is a quality, amazing high quality plastic. Sound is amazing for the money, but sometimes not enough bass. Almost not feel in the ears but we’ll collect sweat and dirt from the ears. The microphone is like a default microphone in all headphones, quality of communication, to be honest, is average. Joystick witch standard set of functions for managing tracks. In joystick there is good feature after open the camera when you press any button(let it be + or -) you make a photo but as I know it works only on IPhone
I really don’t like giving Apple any credit whenever I can help it, but if there’s one thing that I know has consistently been good on their part, it’s these earbuds.They are, without a shred of doubt, timeless, and for very good reason.They’re comfortable. They sound good. They’re lightweight. They’re relatively durable. The microphone is good.What more really can you ask for? I’ve been using cheap earbuds for a lot of time and I keep coming back to these simply because these are the gold standard of affordable earphones.Pretty much the only complaint I could have is that I wish I didn’t need to use the Apple adapter in order to use the controls completely on Android, but honestly, this works on so many other things just fine that it’s barely a nuisance.

Work great. Brand new in original box.
These are THE headphones/earbuds, and have been since day one! They sound fantastic and well-balanced. They’re durable, long-lasting, affordable, and there is NO BATTERY about which to worry! I’m one of those people who can’t make the switch to Bluetooth streaming, because the Bluetooth model simply doesn’t fit my lifestyle. For multiple reasons, it just doesn’t, and no amount of features could make it work for me, which is largely due to my lifestyle. One of the reasons that I’m so adamant about my wired earbuds is because I’m an ultra marathon runner and a long-distance cyclist. It is not an uncommon thing for me to go and spend all day long on a trail run, hike, or multi-day cycling excursion. When I’m out for very long intervals in a shot, for example, I need something that I know will just continue to work without interruption. And since mobile phone service isn’t always available, I depend on lots of downloaded music as well. I’ll even just take my iPod in lieu of my phone sometimes, since it’s much lighter and fulfils its purpose of lasting absurdly long on a single charge and plays exclusively music that I enjoy and have deliberately decided to load.Bluetooth streaming might be all the rage, but when the going gets tough, and it’s true reliability that you need, these EarPods have come through for me for essentially a decade. Weather doesn’t affect battery life or performance, I don’t have to worry about any signal breaking up (which has happened to me numerous times with Bluetooth), I can make and take phone calls all day long, and perhaps one of the most important things: I can plug these into any device for immediate listening–no pairing or paired device limits, no menus or device discovery; just plug and play in an instant! I’ll give you a guess as to how many times I’ve been without music on an endurance run or day-long bicycle ride because the battery died in my wired headphones–a big, resounding, glorious ZERO. There is a tremendous freedom in that; a liberation in knowing that you’ll never be without earbuds no matter what. These just continue to go without interruption, and they sound GREAT.I’m almost chuckling at how I find myself having to explain why a pair of affordable wired earbuds works so well for my lifestyle and could never be replaced, but since wireless devices have permeated essentially every avenue of connectivity, sometimes it’s nice to remind ourselves that we’ve more or less had the simplest solution all along. These earbuds are just SO GOOD, and they deserve to be commended for their strengths!

I read a few reviews where people said that there earphones were used, but mine were not. I am so happy that I ordered 2 sets of these Apple wired earphone with 3.5 jack. Great sound and fits comfortably in my ears. I am able to lay down with them in without pain. So sorry that I have waisted so much money on earphones of a lower quality that break within a month. You should definitely buy these if you need wired earphones.❤️
