    Default Apple In-Ear Headphones with Mic & Remote
    Does anyone have any experience with these Apple OEM accessories? I've read the reviews at the AppleStore website, but they are all comparing them to other $70 earphones. I think I can get them for around $25-$30.

    Does anyone have any input on how these compare to other $25-$30 earphones? The only other alternative I've seen that are compatible with iPhone seethe iluv earphones, but those look ugly and I don't think the quality would be as good as the OEM Apple earphones.

    Thanks in advance for the input

    Honestly you are just paying for the name APPLE. They, im sure are no better then the $25 - $30 dollar In-Ear Headphones w/Mic & Remote. Im sure they are all made in China however if you do drop $70 bucks on them, you will get the nifty little apple sticker

    cheers

    I bought a pair brand new at $70 when they launched. I was disappointed that they don't match up to my other $70 range headphones (E2Cs, ect). Definitely would fit the lower $30-40 price range. I have mine for sale for $40 in b/s/t

    Thanks. If these are really comparable to other $30 earphones then I guess I'll decide to buy a pair.

    Thank you for the input

    I got the headphones when they first came out and I dont know if its just me, but they aren't very comfortable and the sound quality isnt very good. Its basically the same as taking your regular earbuds and pushing them into your ears with your fingers. And the whole mic thing, its kinda useless unless you like the sound of your voice really loud when you talk into the mic. Again, plug your ears and talk for a second. Now try to have a phone conversation like that. All in all... Yea, they're okay.. the look great... (obviously, its apple) but for $70 bucks, I think you can find something out there better.

    i think this is a perfect products, the music to me feels a lot crisper and just generally provides a much more enjoyable atmosphere. 5/5 for me, definitely worth a go.

    i bought it and very dissapointed in it, my advice...
    try it first, it might suits your hearing taste but definetly not my taste specially if you are one of those bass head type.

    i used to love apple in-ear headphones and earbuds
    but they aren't very durable and i doubt app would replace them
    so i bit the bullet near christmas and got westone UM1
    they are soo much better. better quality, and listening is comfortable
    $100 was worth it
