For an earbud design, these apple earbuds perform not too badly. its sound quality is typically much better than other stock earbuds vailable in the market, though still trails behind stock earphones provided by companies such as sony for their walkman series. however, this does not mean that they do not suffer from the typical design problems of earbuds such as lack of noise isolation, pathetic bass amongst other things.
the design of the earbuds are not very comfortable, at least for my ears. i feel that the design will not fit most of the people out there, as they are hard and the shape is one size only. thus this makes them much more uncomfortable as compared to earphones, which you can always change the tips.
the sound quality of the earbuds are also very poor, lacking very much in detail and bass. furthermore, the lack of noise isolation can be a huge problem in noisy areas, as one may need to turn up the volume, which may affect a persons hearing!
In conclusion, these apple stock earbuds are not too bad by earbuds standards, however they still have terrible fit and sound quality. if u lose the earbuds, honestly, dont bother dishing out $30 just to get another one, but instead go for proper in ear earphones. u can get one for half the price and still get better sound quality and isolation

with a unique material to form a perfect harmony. The interlocking in-ear headphones utilises an ingenious patented design for easy on-the-go storage without sacrificing richly delivered audio delivered through performance tuned 9 mm drivers. Koss Touch Control (KTC) remote and microphone technology, made for iPhone, iPad and iPod, gives listeners more control in fewer steps. Listeners are now able to stay connected, shuffle songs and adjust the volume with the simple flick of a switch. The frame of the new interlocking in-ear headphones is constructed from highly polished metal and surrounded by flexible, soft-touch material. This innovative material doubles as a soundproofing coat, intended to deaden any unwanted distractions, that allows the listener's focus to remain on the crystal clean highs and crisp lows - while staying inside the music they love. The interlocking design allows the two in-ear headphones to easily nestle together for simple, tangle-free storage. With its durable metal structure the IL200 KTC in-ear headphones will eliminate the stress of trying to undo the impossible knots that always seem to form when storing in-ear headphones or earbuds. Koss has created the perfect harmony between form and function, so that all you have to worry about is the music. Avoid using headphones with the volume turned up for an extended period of time. Doing so can damage your hearing. It is advisable to keep the volume at a moderate level at all times. For your own safety, please do not use when driving or cycling
