Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Amazon

Amazon:
"Usually very happy with Amazon products but these cheap headphones were a big disappointment."
_
"Total junk, very disappointed in Amazon."
_
"I expect headphones to last at least a year, even when they are this cheap and am disappointed Amazon does not stand behind their product for more than 30 days."
_
"They don't sound nearly as good as the Amazon set but I can't argue with the durability."
_
"Fell apart after a few weeks and am disappointed in quality as this is an amazon product."
_
"The concave indent on the side of the right earbud and the convex on the left is easy to use to distinguish the left and right apart by touch, especially since the Amazon design is still confusing for me to tell apart on sight or feel compared to the intuitive sense I had with Apple's."
_
"Good job Amazon! "
_
"These Amazon Premium Earphones are by far the very best for several reasons, but let me begin saying.....YOU must place bud marked L in left ear and bud marked R in right ear, otherwise they are uncomfy n yes may fall out."
_
"I recommend them, especially when you can get them cheaper (sometimes Amazon discounts them)"
_
"I bought these Amazon Premium Headphones for use with my Nexus 5X and they are pretty nice."
_

Button

Button:
"Only drawback is that the volume buttons do not work with the iPhone."
_
"The only complaint I have is that the pause button is pretty easy to accidentally hit when I'm turning my head for something."
_
"The only problem I've had is that the volume buttons do not work on iOS devices, but they work fine on Amazon devices."
_
"However, they tangle up and its annoying, and the volume buttons didn't work with my iPhone."
_
"the pause button did tho, and while i was at the gym and my chest hit a machine, it would keep pausing, because the buttons have terrible positioning."
_
"The buttons to adjust volume don't work at all, and the start stop button will often activate on its own; it's not that fun to listen to music when the sound cuts out two to three times during a single song."
_
"The buttons (while present) were tactile and clicky enough for me to be comfortably using them without looking at what I was doing."
_
"Great sound quality and all buttons work with a range of scenarios functions."
_
"The only complaint I have is that the pause button is pretty easy to accidentally hit when I'm turning my head for something."
_
"Secondly, the volume up down and play pause buttons function with the 5X as well."
_
"Now I can listen to my Kindle HD with premium sounding headphones and be able to control the volume from the remote button on the cord."

Cable

Cable:
"Every other set like this that I have had ends up a tangled mess of cord, but these never tangle and are easy to unwrap and put in."
_
"The only drawback for me is that the cord is shorter than I expected."
_
"Only complaint is that I only just got these and I am starting to see the wear where the cord splits already."
_
"The only thing that's going wrong with these are the thin cables leading to the buds."
_
"But after a few months the thin, round cords running up from the flat cord to the earbuds failed, wire poking through and everything."
_
"The no-tangle cord works fantastically and saves a lot of frustration."
_
"The sound is pretty good and the flat earbud cable helps eliminate tangles."
_
"The volume control on the cord works great, volume up and down as well as pause."
_
"Nice long cord and clear sound."
_
"I've received feedback that indicates the headphone mic handles windy conditions quite well, I've been happy with the tangle-free cord, and the magnetic earbuds are simply an added bonus for me."
_
"They fit great, sound great and I love the thicker cord and magnetic ear buds but after about 6 months they are beginning to disintegrate."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"these are comfortable and easy to deal with, very little hassle"
_
"Over the next few days, I became disappointed because of the lack of comfort of these earbuds."
_
"I've only had them for a week so I can't rate their durability but at their price and comfort I'd be OK with them only lasting ~2 years."
_
"Very comfortable, which has been my main problem with the others."
_
"I usually use the cheap 10 dollar sony ear buds and the sound quality of these seem a bit worse, I hate inear buds so these are very comfortable for me."
_
"Comfortable headphones are hard to come by."
_
"Good quality in sound, and very comfortable in the ear (which means a lot coming from me as most headphones never end up feeling comfortable for very long)."
_
"Comfortable to wear, decent sound quality, decent call quality."
_
"They're very well priced for the quality of sound comfort they provide."
_
"Great, comfortable, headset controls work with Android phone (HTC One M7), much more subtle and classy looking than their white competitor.."
_
"these are comfortable and easy to deal with, very little hassle"

Connector

Connector:
"Pros:Cheap, good warrantyLooks good and hopefully will not get damaged soonThe magnetic non tangle is a good featureSound quality is excellent compares to 99$ Bose earphonesGood noise cancelationCons:Too big shorter so need to jam it in the earNo L shape at 3.5 jack so could get damaged quicker if we listen to music by putting phone in pocketResult: Personally I would still prefer the apple earpods because I have 2 pairs but apple earphones dont work on android and vice versa."
_
"Most headphones have a right angle jack which saves a lot of room and prevents excessive stress on the wiring at the jack."
_
"The connector does not have a right angle, which made it hard to keep the phone in my cargo pants pocket since the jack sticks up too much."
_
"The lack of a right angle jack is a big drawback to me."
_
"The reason why both headphones are not compatible with different devices is because of how the earplug connector was designed by Apple."
_
"Would be nice to have an L-shaped jack, but it's not a dealbreaker for me."
_
"Would have liked the headphones to have a different connector than one that stands straight up."
_
"I tried these headphones with my iPhone and they sound good, but the Jack slips and sound cuts out so I'd stick with the headphones made for iPhones."
_
"While I gather from other comments here that it is Apple that has made the non-standard connector, it is no less frustrating for me to use, so that is why only 4 stars."
_
"One thing I noticed that I wasn't crazy about is the part of the wire that plugs into the headphone jack sticks out pretty far (at least it seems so to me)."

Control

Control:
"The control broke quickly, and the microphone doesn't work at all."
_
"The only thing I disliked was the fact that you are not able to control the volume or skipping the songs, most you can do is play and pause a song, but even then these headphones are still awesome, they do not tangle as much as others and the magnetic stuff is just something I really enjoy having."
_
"It is still a decent pair of cheap headphones, but the controls breaking so quickly make it a no so great product."
_
"Sometimes will malfunction and increase volume or activate voice control."
_
"They fit comfortably in my ear, and sound fine, but either they're not iPhone compatible, or mine are broken, because the volume controls do not work at all."
_
"The only thing that disappointed me about this product was that the volume control is not compatible with my iPhone 6, which I would have known had I read the product detail closer."
_
"The volume control on the cord works great, volume up and down as well as pause."
_
"These headphones were great until the play pause control, volume toggle, and mic stopped working (only 2 months after I got them)."
_
"Great, comfortable, headset controls work with Android phone (HTC One M7), much more subtle and classy looking than their white competitor.."
_
"The sound is good and they are comfortable, but the controls do not work with an iphone 5s or 4s, or ipod touch."
_
"Now I can listen to my Kindle HD with premium sounding headphones and be able to control the volume from the remote button on the cord."
_

Cord

Cord:
"But after a few months the thin, round cords running up from the flat cord to the earbuds failed, wire poking through and everything."
_
"I love the flat cord these have instead of the old round cords that can so easily get damaged in one way or another."
_
"Yes, I know that teens use and abuse headphones more than the average person, but my daughter has never had issues where cords are broken in less than a year (even on the really cheap-o products)."
_
"I've always had problems in the past with tangled earbud cords."
_
"They look fairly sleek and the magnetic earbud covers are extremely helpful with avoiding tangled cords, as well as the flat cord design."
_
"FUNCTION- I love the magnets, which do an incredible job keeping the cords untangled, in addition to the tangle-free cords."
_
"Great sounding headphones at an affordable price, the only con I can think of is the cords to the headphone can be a little more durable."
_
"Pros:Magnetic ends makes cords easy to wind and they don't get tangled as much."
_
"I love the flat cord these have instead of the old round cords that can so easily get damaged in one way or another."
_

Design

Design:
"Pros:- magnetic earphones stick together- tangle free cordCons:- apple earpods design isn't great- constantly falls out of my ears if I make more than a 10 degree turn in either direction- minimal to no noise cancellation isolation"
_
"It was a terrible design for my ear and am donating them :P"
_
"They are very uncomfortable if you do not have the exact ear shape these were designed for."
_
"Aside from the awkwardly complex shape of the earphone casing itself (compared to the Apple EarPod's impressive minimal design) that I imagine was done mostly to avoid complaints of directly stealing the EarPod design, I like everything about how it's designed."
_
"The concave indent on the side of the right earbud and the convex on the left is easy to use to distinguish the left and right apart by touch, especially since the Amazon design is still confusing for me to tell apart on sight or feel compared to the intuitive sense I had with Apple's."
_
"The design and sound are great...very clear."
_
"Love the design so much."
_
"I liked the design and the magnets keeping the together, but pretty worthless sense they didn't stay in my ear."
_
"Although they seem like a good design, the shape of the earphones don't fit all."
_
"But that was July 2015 so I bought these.3rdThese look, sound and fit very well for $15 BUT the crippling design flaw is the mic not on the wire near your mouth but the split where each ear wire meets HALF WAY DOWN YOUR CHEST!"

Durability

Durability:
"I took good care of them too, so I'm pretty disappointed with their durability."
_
"Disappointing durability, won't be buying again."
_
"In place of the hard plastic shaft beneath the Apple EarPods that I preferred, these have a similar plastic as that around the jack but slightly harder (though more flexible being thinner); I also worried that these would have problem with durability, but they miraculously seem to hold up well and I've gotten used to them."
_
"I'm not yet able to comment on the durability but the headphones are exactly what I expected."
_
"I took good care of them too, so I'm pretty disappointed with their durability."
_
"The sound quality and fit of these headphones are great, but there are major durability issues."
_
"I'm satisfied with these headphones but the durability could use some work."
_
"Although the buds worked with satisfaction, the durability was really poor."
_
"But after some pretty decent durability tests, these feel just the way they did when I first got them, nothing bending in weird ways or loosening up or tattered."
_

Fit

Fit:
"I don't know how the original Apple Earpod design will work on me, but these modified earpods don't fit well in my ear."
_
"Not a perfect fit, but good enough to make me actually like these headphones."
_
"The fit is a bit uncomfortable after awhile if not fitted properly."
_
"There is obviously no way to change or alter the fit so if they do not fit well you are out of luck."
_
"These did not fit or sit in my ear well and honestly were so uncomfortable they bordered on painful."
_
"They work fine, but they don't fit my ears very well so I don't like wearing them."
_
"They also fit my ears quite well."
_
"They seem comfortable in the ear, though they fit loosely."
_
"These did not fit or sit in my ear well and honestly were so uncomfortable they bordered on painful."
_
"I love the concept, but they just didn't fit in my ears and kept falling out."

Listening

Listening:
"Unfortunately, if you plan on doing anything active while listening to these, they're completely useless."
_
"So expect them to become uncomfortable after a few hours of listening."
_
"I don't really use the remote feature or for phone calls, so I can't report on that, but great for listening to music."
_
"(They are not good for lying down and listening to music or audiobooks because they are big and hard and will bruise the outer ear.)"
_
"Way better than the stock earphones that came with my HTC One M7.The problem is that they dont block out enough noise and anyone sitting next to you can make out the music you're listening which can be annoying to your fellow commuters."
_
"With my phone they have a little weird quirk, I have an HTC One (M7) and when I'm listening to something the plus (+) button on the inline controls actually functions as a back and the minus (-) button functions as a forward."
_
"These are very nice and the audio is great for listening to audiobooks."
_
"They have a clear sound and are so comfortable, I keep falling asleep while listening."
_
"It may be that I listen to hip hop, but I've noticed when loaning it to a friend that I can pretty much identify what they're listening to from a few feet away if the volume is above 75% (and my Nexus has a fairly quiet headphone jack."
_
"They do slip if not positioned properly but are the best earphones found to date, for tablet listening."
_
"And the sound is great, particularly when listening to symphonic music."
_

Loud

Loud:
"Another bonus: you can adjust the volume right on the headphones themselves, which is great when a storyteller gets loud or a movie turns from a sleepy English romance to 007 saving the world with rockets and bombs :)."
_
"The mic also functions well- I've never had issues with phone conversations being too loud or too quiet for the person on the other end."
_
"Really really nice for travel and they were loud enough for lots of airplane use."
_
"Downsides: For some reason, even if my music isn't terribly loud people around me tell me they can hear my music."
_
"I could hear myself loud and clear, and folks on the other end reported the same when I asked them."
_

Microphone

Microphone:
"The sound is good, though not great; the microphone is good enough that I can use it for phone calls, which I can't for most cheap headphones; they're pretty comfortable; and they're a little less likely to get wrapped in circles then some headphones."
_
"Bummed really like the price and quality but the clown that chose mic placement....fail."
_
"The control broke quickly, and the microphone doesn't work at all."
_
"Buds are a bit uncomfortable after time and the mic goes crazy randomly"
_
"But the remote microphone is a weak point."
_
"Wouldn't recommend these if you really want the in-line mic."
_
"The microphone works great and phone calls are clear."
_
"I've received feedback that indicates the headphone mic handles windy conditions quite well, I've been happy with the tangle-free cord, and the magnetic earbuds are simply an added bonus for me."
_
"But that was July 2015 so I bought these.3rdThese look, sound and fit very well for $15 BUT the crippling design flaw is the mic not on the wire near your mouth but the split where each ear wire meets HALF WAY DOWN YOUR CHEST!"
_
"After prolonged use they start to hurt but the audio and mic clarity and response is wonderful."
_
"The mic is really decent, but it sits too far down from your mouth."
_

Noise

Noise:
"Cons:Get complaints of excessive noise when I call anyone, even on calm days."
_
"Terrible staticy noise, had to return two pairs in a row for being defective right out of the box"
_
"Also since they do not fit in my ears well they let more exterior sound leak in (a rubber cup would help seal exterior sound out), and probably because of this in a slightly noisy environment like a gym I find it hard to listen with them even with the volume up to maximum, indeed it was impossible to follow an audio book."
_
"As I was talking on the phone, people complained that they couldn't hear me or that there was a lot of background noise."
_
"If you hate hearing your own breathing while using noise isolating headphones (those that have rubber or foam that seal off your ear) then these are the ones!"
_
"Way better than the stock earphones that came with my HTC One M7.The problem is that they dont block out enough noise and anyone sitting next to you can make out the music you're listening which can be annoying to your fellow commuters."
_
"doesn't block outside noises as well as some in-ear headphones."
_
"Not a noise isolating headphone, which is good for certain times."
_
"Even at max volume they sometimes get drowned out by environmental noise, but this is only in rare occurrences, and well within my expectations for a $20 pair of earbuds."
_
"Although they are not noise cancelling, I found these work well at reducing outside noise while still allowing you to hear what you need to hear."
_

Packaging

Packaging:
"It came in an attractive package- great for gift giving."
_
"The headphones came in original amazon packaging and really easy on the ears."
_
"The minimalist packaging was easy to open."
_
"Pros: The packaging was nice....I love pretty much everything except for the buds themselves..."
_
"These look high quality, fell good, and the packaging is superb - similar to what you would expect from a really high end (i. e. not $18) product."
_

Plastic

Plastic:
"The only downside is the hard plastic surface on the earbud portion that's meant to enter your ear."
_
"If amazon made ones with a soft earpad then they would definitely get five stars but hard uncomfortable plastic earbuds only get one star."
_
"I use to have a earbud with the plastic cushion ear piece, I always have problem making that ear piece with cushion stick in my ear and sometime it hurt."
_
"Unlike other cheap headphones, the cable didn't get sticky over time nor did the rubber plastic degrade and fall apart."
_
"You may think the hard plastic is uncomfortable but they are not."
_
"I was a little worried about these because they are made of hard plastic."
_
"The earpieces are made of slick hard plastic."
_
"The sound quality is great but the slick, hard plastic slips out of my ears, even when sitting still."
_
"The earphones fit nicely and feel good in my ears, the housing is all plastic so there is no rubber to help it stay in if you were to try running with them."
_
"excellent sound hard on ears solid plastic! "
_
"The other downside to the bare plastic earpieces are that even seated well, they not feel particularly secure."
_

Plug

Plug:
"I had to use an extension cord made for earphones in order to plug it into my T. V. and the plug doesn't fit very well."
_
"The problem with these for me was the ear plugs themselves."
_
"Ear plug shape or fit is weird and dosen't function properly (IT REALLY SUCKS)........."
_
"The skin started peeling off and then the part were you plug it in broke apart"
_
"I love the headset use I get when I plug it into my phone for handsfree conversations."
_
"The sound is good but don't know where they came up with the shape of the plugs."
_
"The 3.5mm plug is nice and narrow so it fits in phone cases like the standard iPhone headphone plug (many others are too fat."
_
"It works great when I plug it into my Galaxy S5 phone, or my laptop though!"
_
"Did not know about the lines at the end of the plug, but I do now and these work great."

Price

Price:
"For the price you can't go wrong, just not the most durable pair of headphones I have ever owned."
_
"Good sound sound for the price, but not very durable."
_
"The headphones themselves feel flimsy and cheap."
_
"For something so cheap and high-performing, you would expect this to be flimsy, but it isn't so this is really great all around."
_
"Usually very happy with Amazon products but these cheap headphones were a big disappointment."
_
"I expect headphones to last at least a year, even when they are this cheap and am disappointed Amazon does not stand behind their product for more than 30 days."

Quality

Quality:
"Sound quality is not so good."
_
"The audio quality isn't great either."
_
"Bummed really like the price and quality but the clown that chose mic placement....fail."
_
"I ordered two of these within a year and a half..... sound quality is amazing, the reliability is Terrible."
_
"Horrible sound quality, doesn't stay in the ears and doesn't support iOS or Mac fully."
_
"I have had them for about 10 months and have not had any of the quality issues mentioned in the negative reviews."
_
"Good quality in sound, and very comfortable in the ear (which means a lot coming from me as most headphones never end up feeling comfortable for very long)."
_
"I have been looking for good quality (not in-ear) earbuds for a long time."
_
"quality merchandise at a reasonable price."
_
"The sound quality is perfect for work outs (ie not premium if you want to just listen to music in silence)."
_
"Overall was pleased with the sound and quality of the headphones and do not expect them to fail anytime soon."

Range

Range:
"AUDIO- Like I mentioned, I use them primarily for podcasts and usually earbuds at this price range sound tinny and washed out, making it hard to understand what people are saying."
_
"Great sound quality and all buttons work with a range of scenarios functions."
_
"Excellent dynamic range!"
_
"However, considering the price range, these are pretty decent."
_
"They are not audiophile quality, but they are definately a mid-level earphone that is as good as or better than other $20.00 range earbuds I have used."
_
"They are the best, at least in the range up to a hundred dollars."

Remote

Remote:
"Bar came down to my chest and broke the remote."
_
"But the remote microphone is a weak point."
_
"The problem appeared to be a loose connection within the remote."
_
"Between the microphone placement and the volume remotes incompatibility with my phone it makes these a huge bummer."
_
"It's great that they have a remote with microphone, but the placement is not great."
_
"The problem that I have with Apples earbuds is that the remote won't control the functions on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 so I found a recommendation for these Amazon Fire phone earbuds and am happy with the shape and function."
_
"Now I can listen to my Kindle HD with premium sounding headphones and be able to control the volume from the remote button on the cord."
_
"I wanted good quality headphones that were comfortable (so all those in-ear were not an option for me) and that it had remote and mic, these headphones have all of those qualities."
_
"The cable up to the remote is matte and flat and pleasing to the touch."
_
"The ear bud premium headphones with remote are excellent."
_
"The remote works well for raising and lowering volume, progressing to the next song and as a microphone for phone and other voice use."

Rubber

Rubber:
"Terrible build quality - the rubber around the wires is splitting open in multiple places exposing copper wire!"
_
"Unlike other cheap headphones, the cable didn't get sticky over time nor did the rubber plastic degrade and fall apart."
_
"( I hate those rubber inner ear style that are so popular )The sounds quality is great."
_
"I take off the half star because they just don't fit as well as ones with silicone rubber tips."
_
"Sound is not extremely great, but that's expected from headphones lacking foam rubber equipped buds."
_
"They still work, but I no longer use them as it is very annoying and little black bits of rubber are still coming off."
_
"They sound great and don't have the stupid rubber pieces that other earbuds have... Plus they have a great price."
_
"this does not have rubber ends, but fits in the ear quite well."
_
"The sticky rubber tangles easy."
_
"Also since they do not fit in my ears well they let more exterior sound leak in (a rubber cup would help seal exterior sound out), and probably because of this in a slightly noisy environment like a gym I find it hard to listen with them even with the volume up to maximum, indeed it was impossible to follow an audio book."

Shape

Shape:
"They are very uncomfortable if you do not have the exact ear shape these were designed for."
_
"Their conicle shape makes them hard to sit in sweaty ears and they get a bit uncomfortable after long wear."
_
"Second, the shape of the ear buds is not well suited to my ears and allows alot of ambient noise to enter, making them useless in all but the quietest environments."
_
"(This shape is definitely not for everyone---I found it very uncomfortable.)"
_
"Pros:Cheap, good warrantyLooks good and hopefully will not get damaged soonThe magnetic non tangle is a good featureSound quality is excellent compares to 99$ Bose earphonesGood noise cancelationCons:Too big shorter so need to jam it in the earNo L shape at 3.5 jack so could get damaged quicker if we listen to music by putting phone in pocketResult: Personally I would still prefer the apple earpods because I have 2 pairs but apple earphones dont work on android and vice versa."
_
"The shape is all wrong, the size is too large, and they totally mess with the Feng shui of the openings to my skull."
_
"Although they seem like a good design, the shape of the earphones don't fit all."
_
"The shape of the earbuds also happened to fit perfectly and snugly in my ears."
_
"Apparently my ears have drastically different shapes; the left earbud sits in my ear comfortably and feels secure."
_
"The shape is super comfortable, they always stay in place, and the magnetic backs and flat cord keep them tangle-free."
_
"The sound is good but don't know where they came up with the shape of the plugs."

Size

Size:
"I could see how they would be a problem with children or people with small ear holes."
_
"Not only are they small and easy to transport, they do not tangle with the flat profile, and the magnetic ear pieces make use super easy."
_
"If you have small ears, these may become uncomfortable faster as they are on the larger size when compared to a bullet design."
_
"I know my ears are small but this is ridiculous."
_
"My ears a small so the buds are uncomfortable sometimes or they won't stay in."
_
"This earpiece is great, my only issue is that the buds feel a little small in my ears."
_
"I often elect just to wad them up and shove them in my jeans pocket instead of stowing them properly; Despite being an Android loyalist I would bum the Apple EarPods off of friends and family who bought new iPhones and didn't need them because of the small size and relatively good quality, because by the time I'd kill a pair I'd be able to find someone else willing to part with theirs."
_
"Wish it came in white, but that's a small price to pay for great usability."
_
"They're still a bit loose for the size of my ears, so I'll be using the 'Earhoox' on these as well..."

Video

Video:
"Very weird to try to pause a movie and have music or an audio book start playing at the same time."
_
"Accessed numerous videos on line in an attempt to find a correct fit or correct way of placing the earbuds in my ears, nothing appears to work."
_
"Another bonus: you can adjust the volume right on the headphones themselves, which is great when a storyteller gets loud or a movie turns from a sleepy English romance to 007 saving the world with rockets and bombs :)."
_
"These are the best headphones for you're money, if you're the casual music movie listener."
_
"If you sit down on a couch (or on a plane) quietly watching a movie or listenig to some tunes, they are great."
_
"These headphones are wonderful - the sound is clear and crisp - for music, instant video, everything."
_
"But that was good enough to watch a video using them"

Volume

Volume:
"Only drawback is that the volume buttons do not work with the iPhone."
_
"The only thing I disliked was the fact that you are not able to control the volume or skipping the songs, most you can do is play and pause a song, but even then these headphones are still awesome, they do not tangle as much as others and the magnetic stuff is just something I really enjoy having."
_
"Sometimes will malfunction and increase volume or activate voice control."
_
"They fit comfortably in my ear, and sound fine, but either they're not iPhone compatible, or mine are broken, because the volume controls do not work at all."
_
"The only thing that disappointed me about this product was that the volume control is not compatible with my iPhone 6, which I would have known had I read the product detail closer."
_
"The only problem I've had is that the volume buttons do not work on iOS devices, but they work fine on Amazon devices."
_
"The volume control on the cord works great, volume up and down as well as pause."
_
"These headphones were great until the play pause control, volume toggle, and mic stopped working (only 2 months after I got them)."
_
"Another bonus: you can adjust the volume right on the headphones themselves, which is great when a storyteller gets loud or a movie turns from a sleepy English romance to 007 saving the world with rockets and bombs :)."
_
"Secondly, the volume up down and play pause buttons function with the 5X as well."

iPhone

iPhone:
"Only drawback is that the volume buttons do not work with the iPhone."
_
"Not really compatible with Iphone"
_
"Buyer beware--these are almost completely incompatible with an iphone or ipad."
_
"They do not work well with the iPhone."
_
"They fit comfortably in my ear, and sound fine, but either they're not iPhone compatible, or mine are broken, because the volume controls do not work at all."
_
"Well the good part is that they sound amazing which I like very much so, BUT the volume up and down does not work with my iPhone 6. also, when I put them into my phone they make this annoying amp like screech."
_
"Not only do they enhance and give me the very best sound out of my Apple iphone but the hardly tangle up, for which, they really belong to my 11 year old son who has lost or broke and always mega mega tangles all the others!"
_
"The overall shape of the earpods resemble Apple earpods close enough that one can use earpod accessories such as Earhoox for EarPods - Compatible with iPhone 6 6+ 5 5S 5C - White if you want them to really stay in your ear."
_
"The sound is good and they are comfortable, but the controls do not work with an iphone 5s or 4s, or ipod touch."
_
"Very very good product, if you are using it with an android device, which i was not, because I did not read the questions fully :(I really wished that these worked with iPhone, the volume doesn't work when the device is sleeping(screen off)(on iPhone) but everything else is perfect, (just not meant for iPhone)"

iPod

iPod:
"shame they are not compatible w ipod , but i use anyway."
_
"The sound quality is as good at the headphones that came with my iPod Touch 5 (so not brilliant, but more than adequate for my purposes).I would've given these 5 stars except for two things."
_
"FWIW, similar iPod earbuds are a little uncomfortable but will stay in my ears."
_
"I'm no expert, but these have a great sound to me when I use them with my Ipod."
_
"The remote control only works to pause your music on an iPhone or iPod -- the volume controls are not compatible."
_
"The sound is good and they are comfortable, but the controls do not work with an iphone 5s or 4s, or ipod touch."
_
"They are about the same comfort level as the original iPod iPhone ones from recent years."
_
"These are by far the best all around earbuds for your I phone or iPod for a great price"
_
"They don't tangle because of the magnets and being flat, they work great with my Samsung Galaxy S5 and even my iPod (at least pausing the latter) and above all, they don't have those silicone earbuds like the headphones that came with my mobile, cause those always hurt my ears."
_
"In the past I would always buy iPhone iPod headphones since they worked excellent."
