    Is the sound quality any good, or have you all replaced
    them with aftermarket inner-ear earbuds?

    I've never used an iPod, but the sound quality of some
    Bose headphones plugged into my MBP is excellent. :)

    I usually give them away. To me is either in ear or full size headphones. I only keep one emergency pair since they pretty much suck.

    I have replaced mine with aftermarket ones. I keep the Apple Earbuds wrapped up and in the box, mostly for the purpose of reselling, when I want to upgrade it down the road.

    Bin them. Immediately.

    Like all cheap and nasty bundled earphones, they are actually bad for your hearing as you have to turn up the decibels to hear the details in the music. Buy better quality earphones/headphones/IEMs and you won't need such high volume to actually hear your music.

    You don't need to spend very much to get a massive upgrade.

    The Apple earbuds are junk. I always get a pair of aftermarket ones and save the Apple earbuds as backups.

    Never even opened mine. I've purchased 3 Apple products that came with headphones in my life. I think family members used them or something.

    Sennheiser.
