You'll experience your music in a whole new way with the Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic. The EarPods have been specially designed for the geometry of the ear, so you get a more comfortable, secure fit no matter how much you shake your groove thing. The speakers are the stars of the show; they minimize sound loss while providing you with deeper, richer bass notes and clearer audio quality.

More Information

  • Apple studied thousands of ears to find commonalities between all of them. The results are earbuds that fit comfortably in your ear, provide superior sound, and stay put through pretty much any kind of movement.
  • The speakers inside the Apple EarPods minimize sound loss so you get the ultimate in sound output. Strategically placed acoustic vents deliver deeper, richer bass notes and overall audio quality that makes every word and whisper ring loud and clear.
  • The EarPods are super durable and perfect for active lifestyles. You can take these headphones to the gym or on a winter run without worrying about water or sweat damaging them.
  • The built-in remote control and mic let you adjust the volume, switch tracks, control music and video playback, and answer or end calls just by pinching the cord.
  • The remote and mic are supported by all models of iPod, iPhone, and iPad (not all models support volume up/down functions). Audio is supported by all iPod models.

  • from Pierrefonds

Sound Good but break easily!

The sound is good but these ear pods keep breaking several times a year which is not that good.

  • from Surrwy

There pretty good

These EarPods sound pretty good for small little things . For my ear there really good fit to. They break easily though I've had three pairs in 3 months though. But everything else is pretty good on them.

  • from Toronto, ON

Came broken

They came broken

Perfect !

Parfait ! Perfect !

  • from Thornhill, ON


The shape complemented my ears very well and sounded as a pair of earbuds in this range is probably supposed to sound. I've tried a highly rated pair of (price) earbuds after using these for a while, but they would stab my ears painfully and had a tinny sound. The only reason these get a star off is because they only last me for five months with light to moderate use, though I think that if you went out of your way not to have them smash against hard surfaces their lifespan could be extended.

Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic (MD827ZM/A)

Decent ear pods, but VERY expensive. There are similar or better quality at half price.

  • from Kingston, ON

Fit my ear perfectly and sound great

I'm not a fan of in ear earphones as they usually fall out and are uncomfortable for me. Earpods are unique so I couldn't find anything cheaper or better sounding. I bought these to replace my old earpods and I wasn't looking to spend too much for a pair of earphones I might lose or break etc..

  • from Brampton, ON

iPod 30GB

these earbuds don't work with my iPod. I took them back for an exchange and the replacement earbuds don't work either. I have sound but no volume or other controls.

  • from Burnaby

Bring back original earpods

New design is not that great and why mess with a good thing!!!

  • from Ottawa, ON


You would think Apple would make a better quality ear pods, since they are so well known & they have excellent products. Very disappointing.

  • from Brampton, ON

Quite disappointing

They don't stay in my ears and the mic quality is terrible.

  • from Melfort sk


My first EarPods the right EarPod died in 1 and a half months than I got deferent pare with my iPhone 5c and they still work but they are less comfortable and if I move they fall out in less I put the cord behind my ears

  • from Winnipeg, MB


Sound is pretty good... while it lasts. I've had about 8 pairs of these in the last year (only because they were free returns). I would not pay for another pair. The remote and mic button doesn't last long. I have had many pairs stop working in one of the buds so you are stuck with only one side of the sound. Overall would not recommend.

  • from Saint Catharines, ON

Great headphones: a little overpriced

These were awesome headphones.Got them in about may or so and they lasted me until january or so. Awesome headphones. They gave me a headache for the first couple days i used them, but as i got used to them, they were awesome. these have awesome bass. Only complaint is the durability, and they price. Overall, a decent pair of headphones. 8.5 out of 10

  • from Toronto, ON

It was soso

Overall it was really good, sound etc... But it was a lil expensive for me. And also the most disappointing part is that the volume rocker is ONLY for apple products, not androids, oh well. But I bought it only for the mic really so i guess it'sz all good. I see how apple limits their products, so only APPLE can use them.

  • from Thornhill, ON

crisp sound but poor comfort

The sound is flawless, I have experienced not even half of the quality with a much more expensive EarPods. However, the plastic they are made of is so hard that it hurts my ears therefore I could wear them for max. 15 min. Too bad :( as the quality of the sound is one of a kind.

Good for "free" headphones.

I received these with my iPhone 5 and at first I was very happy with them (even though they had a tendency to come loose when I was moving around a lot), but then they just stopped working one day. Like my charger, I think a wire became disconnected and, after nine months of use, the only way I could get them to work was by bending or twisting the wire into specific positions. A bit of a pain when you're trying to go hands free. I'll break it down according to the categories listed: Ergonomics: very comfortable, but slip out of ears when moving a lot; even for people with little ears like me. Performance: no complaints here at all. Comfort: isn't that kind of the same as ergonomics? Value: mine were free so I'd say that's a good deal, but as far as earbuds with a mic go, I'd still say they're a pretty amazing deal at only [price]. Overall, I'm happy with this product and will probably buy a second pair to replace my broken ones. Although, based on my experience and the experience of friends, I would say the ones offered with previous iPhone models work just as well and last a lot longer. Happy listening!

Best earbuds

The best quality and comfortable as well.

  • from Richmond, BC

Not impressive

The controls are intermittent, sound quality low. Not great value at all.

  • from Toronto, Ontario

Great Earbuds

These are great. Very comfortable. Very smooth sound. But a bit overpriced. But if you don't mind paying a bit more... Than I suggest you buy them.

  • from Grimsby, ON

need a little getting used to

i got these head phones and right away i was impressed by the packaging classic apple. these headphones are a little uncomfortable but thats just cause no other headphone goes in like these and i have not used apple headphones in a while but the sound is great they have the same amount of bass as the pair of Ibeats i used to have and there like half the price

  • from Hamilton, ON

They suck

I bought these new from the store and a year later they dont work at all, dont waste your money,they break easily

  • from Sk

Dont get

Got them with my new ipod , all i can say is no bass and too much treble and mot very strong, had them for a month then cat bit it once and the right side stopped working, and also other people can clearly hear what your listening to. Dont waste your money!

  • from Windsor, ON

I must be one of the lucky ones

From every review I have read, most state that they fall out and are not comfortable. I just bought these yesterday and compared them to another pair I was going to purchase. These headphones out beat the other pair hands down. I must have smaller ears, but these fit perfectly. They don't fall out or bug my ears like the older versions did after wearing them for a long period of time. I did favour the older headphones but these are defiantly a positive upgrade. I love the fact that they do cancel out noise. I go to the college so drowning out everyones voices was a big thing for me when buying a new pair. The bass is awesome, and they sound very clear. The price did suck but when I looked at the prices for other such as skull candy they were the same price. I recommend to at least test them out.

  • from Sudbury, ON

Awesome for price

tried many brands in this range and I found these to be the most comfortable and affordable....GOOD JOB APPLE

  • from Scarborough, ON

Came with iphone 5

So, i recieved these buds with the purchase of my iphone, and after a month a tried them for the first time......all i can say is good job apple...making a pair of buds that actually dont suck ( There not worth 35, but they are decent for a pair of buds that come the purchase of the phone, ipod, etc,,)

  • from Dartmouth

Worth buying

It's nice to finally have a pair of earbuds that fit right & also have good sound.

  • from Lethbridge, AB

Super awesome!

These earpods are so great. Normally I don't like Apple products because they aren't that great, and overpriced. These however, are super good. They fit into my ears so nicely, and I usually have problems finding earphones that don't hurt my ears. The sound quality of the earpods are amazing too. I've tried many different headphones and earphones, including Monster, Bose, Sony, JVC, and Apple, and these are by far one of the best. The bass sounds awesome, terrible, mid-range, vocals, everything! Especially considering they're Apple products. I definitely recommend these to everyone.

  • from Kelowna, BC


Super good sound quality! fit comfortably and don't fall out of your ears! Huge improvement over previous iphone earbuds, would recommend for anyone looking for a good pair of earbuds at a good price.

  • from Toronto, ON

not worth it

I got these when I bought my new iPhone. I am disappointed. Unlike the commercial ad for these new earpods, they just don't fit my ear. They fall half out. I can still hear the music, as the shape directs it from its half fallen-out place into my ear, but this is not a first choice headphones. I leave them in my backpack in case something happens to my real headphones and I'm desperate for a temporary set. Sorry Apple, I like you, but this isn't the "one size fits all" success story you make it out to be.

  • from Halifax,NS

Great EarPods

I just picked these up and for the price they are great.Good clarity and decent bass. The old Apple ear buds are garbage compared to these.Give them a try

  • from Kitchener, ON

Great earbuds

These are the best earbuds that I've ever had. The sound is amazing, I can hear things in my music that was never clear with other earbuds. They also fit great and have an exceptional value for their quality.

  • from Burnaby, BC

Not for Everyone: New Design Falls Short (and Out)

A sales rep echoed Apple’s boastful claim: these EarPods “rival high-end headphones.” After trying them out, I must disagree. While the sound quality is good, it’s only marginally better than the older type that used to come with every Apple device and not by any stretch impressive. As for its new ergonomic design, (despite Apple’s three years of development) they’re only ideal for people with smaller ears. At the gym I found just lying down on a bench was enough to cause these suckers to fall out. Though more costly, if you have to stick with Apple, the In-ear Headphones are probably a better choice.

  • from Kitchener, ON

Great Work Apple

Here is the review you asked for :) These earpods are much better then apples previous. The fit great in the ear and don't sound like tin. Very crisp and have super clean range from high to low. Apple has has spent a great deal of time porting it out for optimum sound quality. Now for durability time will have to tell but I don't see that being a problem if you keep it nicely wrapped up in the plastic clam shell type case provided. They should last much longer then the Bose MIE2 headphones, my pair always wanted to fall apart so I ended up having to superglue them which was dissapointing for [the price] headphones Great Work Apple

  • from Lethbridge


Just finished buying these new "Earpods" & I'm impressed, these little things are a HUGE improvement over their old ones. You can actually hear the bass in theses ones. Overall, these "Earpods" are actually good for that price.

  • from ontario

Simply awesome apple has done it again !!!!

these headphones are amazing awesome bass the sound is so clear, no distortion nice balance of mids, highs and lows. the previous apple headphones would always fall out of my ears these fit so well and they are very comfortable. i like the fact that they made the middle button slightly larger than the previous model of headphones. good job apple money, well spent. would seriously recommend to anyone looking for a good set of earbuds.
