    Why would you want to buy them in the first place. They are rubbish.

    I like to button setup and at that price I can't complain. Fused with my favorite buds? It'll be great.

    They're knockoffs (the links above are, at least).

    They are so unconfortable. I wonder how many people actually use the ones that came with their iDevice. Get a pair that has the soft removable rubber that goes in the ears.

    There are a lot of them that have the same button setups, I have a few different ones. From Sony, Bose and klispch.

    Well if you're happy with poor sound quality not to mention build quality then so be it.

    ----------

    I never ever use the ones that come with my iDevices. They always get sold as brand new when I sell the device. In fact they never get taken out of the box. Headphones that are bundled with any product are typically cheaply made and of poor quality. The funny thing is I see so many people using them. I guess they just don't care.

    ....but they are painful!!!

    Yeah, I've seen people use them. Hell for $20 you can get ones so much better. Generally I spend more than that, but amost anything is better than the stock ones.

    I would never intentionally buy iPhone headphones by themselves, to begin with.

    So, no. :)

    I've bought it once, they are knockoffs, really bad quality with one ear louder. I recommend going to the store if you want them.

    There is no need to be rude. If you don't want to accept sound advice that's up to you. Changing the earbuds isn't going to make the sound quality magically better or improve the build quality.

    Don't they give these out for free at the apple store if you bring your old one?

    Apple should replace them free of charge if you take them to the store

    Is this a known policy? First I have heard of it. Great if this is true. I have two sets that are failing that way.

    Calling them rubbish? They are actually better than the stupid beats!

    If you are audiophile you will appreciate them and for the price they are actually a steal!

    You should get skull candy fix earphones, I use them as they don't fall out of my ears no matter how hard I try, and they also come with an inline mic for talking and using Siri with along with volume up and downs.

    But that's my recommendation, you will hear many others so do your research and pick the ones that best suit your needs :)

    Yeah. All of their hardware and accessories come standard with a 1 year warranty. Exchanged a failing mini display to vga adapter, my extra MagSafe charger, and a pair of headphones.

    Thank you for that. I got a pair of the in ear version when they released and haven't used anything since (except for the time I thought I had lost them and was using my back up earbuds then I found my fix ear buds lol) anyway love the sound quality and the fact that they don't fall out of my ear.

    Mine are more than a year old. Do they ask for proof of purchase?
