Advantages: Stylish, cheap
Disadvantages: Poor sound quality, gets dirty easily
I got my apple earphones with my Iphone 3gs a year ago and I have to say that this is without a doubt the worst earphones that I have had.
The physical appearance is not so bad. The white and grey plastic covering the wires actually look appealing however the earphones appearance does not make up for the fact that the sound quality is extremely poor. The headphones are not comfortable when inserted into the ear and I find that it tends to often fall out. The sound is really fuzzy and not crisp and clear as for instance beats by Dr.Dre. The headphones also leak a lot of the sounds due to the small wholes on the outside of the earphone, this lets strangers eavesdrop onto your conversations and may disturb others in a quiet environment. The earphones are clean and nice at first but after several uses later the white plastic will become grey and its very difficult to remove marks from the wires and the earphones themselves. However the headphones are extremely cheap, they are available for less than £1 on eBay. The newer apple headphones also have a volume control attached to the wire of the headphone which is very convenient when your phone is tucked into your pocket and you want to adjust the volume. As with nearly all headphones, these are clearly marked with the left and right earphone symbols. The headphone wire is long, this is a big advantage as you can use it at home on the laptop to watch movies if you wish. It also has a clip on the wires to make the two earphones bond and become closer which makes them "knot" free when you use them next and its more convenient to have the two wires running adjacent rather than the wires dangling all over the place.
Hope this has helped.
Summary: DON'T BUY
