    I also think that Apple could give us better earpods.

    I thought that the main reason for Apple to acquire Beats was to give us better earpods in the iphone 6.

    Maybe in future iphones we will have better earpods.

    Since the iPhone 4, I haven't used any of their earbuds/earpods. I still have them completely wrapped, still in the box.

    Maybe I should sell them.

    They don't fit my ears. They'll never give us beats in the box

    Never used them. I always just leave them in the package, and they become a selling point when I resell my phone because they've never been used. They are terrible headphones and really a waste of resources for a company trying to be so green.

    They should get rid of them and lower the price, or include the in-ear models in their place.

    I hate them so much I just keep them sealed in the box. I use Bluetooth headphones and don't look back.
    The only headphones I got worth using was with a HTC Rezound which came with a $100 pair of beats ear buds. The first 720p 4.3" phone from 2011.

    I like them for what they are. Nothing spectacular by any means but gets the job done.

    Though you're absolutely right that they are no good for jogging.

    Earpods never stay in my left ear. Even sitting still, I literally have to tilt my head to the right to have it stay in the ear. Otherwise it just falls out.

    I am still using the same ear buds that came with my iPhone 5. The ear buds that came with my 5S and 6 are still unopened an in their original boxes. I actually like them, they fit my ears well.

    Hate? No.
    Love? No
    They're freebies. I just use them if I don't feel like listening to music (via Yamaha Pro 500s), not going to the gym (better in ear ones that I own). Like, if I'm making a phone call or something like that and in public.

    Wow perhaps i'm in the minority but I actually love earpods. Their the first buds that truly fit comfortably in my ears, great sound quality (in my estimation) and they actually last. When I was stationed in Afghanistan one pair of earpods lasted the entire deployment while my fellow soldier's Beats pods only lasted a month or two..

    Once I stuck some EarSkinz on them, I loved them.
