I hope that in making this review, I can save other innocent internet shoppers from the same tragic mistake I made. I got these with the intent of receiving actual apple made headphones. However, what I got was just embarrassing. These knock off headphones came in a broken cracked case which could probably be attributed to the paper thin plastic bag it traveled across the country in.
As for music quality... imagine trying to listen to a concert from the receiving end of a phone call that is being take 100 feet underwater. I could barely make any lyrics. It's almost like this product was made as a joke for the producers to see how many silly internet people could actually buy their sad excuse for headphones. Now that I think about it, I'm genuinely surprised these headphones even fit in my iPhone 5. I would feel more satisfied burning *** dollars than actually purchasing these headphones again.
But, if you're still reading this and like...."Well, music quality that sounds like listening to a concert from the receiving end of a phone call that is being taken 100 feet underwater is good for me." Do me a favor and save your money. I doubt you need to listen to music so bad that you would even consider purchasing such horrible headphones.
I wouldn't recommend these headphones to my greatest enemy.
I had the original head phones like these that came with my iphone5 and loved them, and then I lost them. I bought these as they seem to be the same ones but the quality of the microphone has not worked since day 1, every person I call claims they cannot hear me clearly through the microphone. I can hear them just fine but they are unable to hear me. The sound quality for listening to music is great, but something is wrong with the microphone. I would recommend purchasing the original Apple ones from the Apple store because the microphone on those would probably be a lot better, I loved my original Apple ones.
These look great, but don't work at all. I tried to use these for a conference call but even with the volume turned up I could barely hear anyone else, and they said I sounded "far away". I wasn't sure what I should do about it (it seemed like too much effort to return something so cheap), but my dilemma was resolved when I saw that they plastic on the ear piece popped off and got lost, so now I could throw them away without guilt.
I can tell theses are knock off headsets... The sound quality is awful and the headset is plastic... Not ceramic like the others. Not in original package either. I have never left a bad review before and this takes the cake.
Quality sound ..fast shipping .. I ordered these head phone before Christmas and still hadn't received them by New Years .. I tracked them with FedEx and its seems they had been lost .. FedEx told me to contact shipper for replacement .. I thought it would be a hassle but it actually was easy .... I called customer service and they replaced them no problem.. I received them in two days.. Happy happy
