This was a cheap replacement headphone set that I bought to use with my Iphone. Luckily, not everything Apple does is different so you can use any 3.5mm headphones with them. This is the size of the connector that comes as standard. Apple like to do everything different, such as tiny little sim cards that do not ft anything other than iphone 5, which is rather annoying but luckily they have not decided to personalise their headphones just yet.

These are cheap and cheerful and cost around £3 - £4. They are perfect for the messing about at the gym with so that I can listen to some music whilst I work out.
I did not want an expensive pair of headphones as I just throw them in my bag. I did not want a special little pouch to store them in after use and all I wanted was a pair of good value earphones that would work just fine. I need a cheap pair to get sweaty and dirty and this pair fits the bill. These are grey and white with rubber buds on the end. These are mounted on a smooth plastic section that is curved so it fits comfortably against the ear. The rubber ends actually fit really well in my ears and although they are listed as left and right ones, I can wear either one in my ear comfortably. The white flexible lead connects in the middle and ends with a good quality metal 3.5mm jack.
These are very good headphones for the money and I was very pleased with the sound quality they gave. I find that because fit snug in my ears, I get the best possible sound quality and noise is not lost or distorted. These are just as good as any headphones supplied with the iphones and if you yours fail then these will make a good alternative. The headphones do not have a switch or pause button and all you get are the headphones but this is reflected in the price. The headphones are not noise isolating and you do get a little bit of background noise seeping in, however I was not prepared to pay a lot for a pair of headphones to get trashed in the gym.
The headphones are cheap and cheerful but I was surprised with them. The build quality is high and unlike previous cheap headphones, they are actually quite comfortable. The headphones slot really comfortably into my ears and the soft rubber moulds to the shape of the ear, ensuring the best possible sound quality. These are perfect for the gym where you will get them sweaty and not take the best care of them. They are definitely worth the price and I recommend them.
