I have very few complaints about the many Apple products I own and have owned. The seriously bad quality of the iPhone earphones is however hard to ignore. I've had 3 pairs already, and all of them have either stopped working altogether (no sound is produced at all), or that annoying crackling sound appears whenever you listen to music. I have friends whose iPhone earphones' microphone/clicker stopped working and have experienced similar problems as me. It doesn't help that Apple replaces the earphones, and they break after a few weeks again. Maybe it's time for Apple to do a recall?
