If you're looking for a pro audio in-ear monitors under a $100, these are simply the best. The sound is balanced from 5Hz - 21 KHz (dual driver), accurate sound reproduction across lows-mids-highs. The microphone and remote appears to be the same as the standard iPod/iPhone buds. Package includes multiple ear pieces for perfect sizing and replacement meshes. Designed as noise canceling buds, you have to insert the earpieces in your ears (they aren't designed to give accurate sound reproduction resting outside like the stock iPhone ear buds do). Also, you're not getting bass boost here, this is balanced (accurate) sound reproduction, which is what would be desired for pro audio use.

These are nice if you will just be talking on the phone. They do not stay in while working out. But the phone part is good and people can hear me very well. makes multitasking easier

The In-ear headset of Apple is available here with an excellent Price but its sound quality is not so great and even quality of wire is not satisfactory.

Outstanding buy. Exactly what I wanted and for less than half the price of the apple store. Anyone looking for this type and wants to save $ these are the way to go.

So, granted that my experience has only been with the stock iPhone earphones, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the sound quality and comfort of these. I've been using them for the past two days, about 5-6 hours in a row and they do not bother my ears. Once you find the plug that best suits your ear, its good to go. The sound is real, crisp and clear. Not too much treble or bass. Its just right, though you can adjust your setting from your music EQ on the iphone or from itunes on your computer if you prefer. I would recommend these, especially if you can get them for less than the in store price of $79.99.

I've been using Apple in-ears since they first came out. I got this pair as a gift and was sorely disappointed to see the cable break apart within 9 months! The rubber/plastic covering the headphone jack fell apart til the copper wire underneath was exposed. And then the rubber peace near the ear buds also broke up. I was surprised because I didn't put my in-ears through much wear and tear. It was just average every other day use.

My in-ears (no remote) from the previous generation still works fine (although the headphone jack area has worn down after 5 yrs). I think Apple really cheaped out when choosing materials for this generation of in-ears! I used to recommend them to friends but I'm gonna warn people to stay away!

I bought these headphones from a local retailer for $75 about two years ago. The sound is pretty good but not nearly as "crisp" as I thought they'd sound.
They have some cool features like built in iPod/volume controls and multiple size & textured bulbs/pads to fit a range of ear sizes & situations but they're headphones so ~sound~ is THE most important factor. In all fairness, I ended up using 2 sets of pads at a time by placing the medium sized rubber bulb over the gray foam pad and that actually improved the sound and helped to hold them in better. These, to me, don't sound much better than the stock headphones that came w/ my Galaxy Note 1. These are good but for around $100 I'd rather just buy Bose ear buds.

Other than the fact that the cable is still the flimsy Apple cable, this thing is a solid win. I love the sound of the dual drivers and the fact that they isolate outside sound so you can listen at a lower volume.

What I do love is that the cable is replaceable if you can solder because the buds unscrew to reveal the drivers. I have done this once with a broken set of the free ones that come with the iPhone's that still had a good cable and it was like gettin brand new ones.

I'll keep these as long as I can keep finding cables to replace when they wear out.
