    Pros - Well, they do make noise. Sort of
    Cons - Not worth even opening
    I don't know whether it's a conspiracy or a joke, but Apple's talk of these being good quality just makes them seem like hilarious liars who could sell ice to eskimos. If their intent is to drive aftermarket sales, then they've managed it. As far as I can tell these things literally don't play bass. It's just not there. The midrange is ok, and if you're tired, they're ok for watching movies with because they delete the thunderous parts of the soundtrack and preserve the voices and background noise quite well.
    The only possible use these really have is as a marketing tool to see how many people are wearing them and therefore fell for the marketing and sales speech. It's a lot.
    Oh and they fall out easily and they snap quite unexpectedly if you drop them on something hard.

    Pros - Design, Remote, Mic
    Cons - Sound, Value
    They are not very high quality and hurt my ear after wearing for half an hour.

    Pros - free?
    Cons - Dirty sounding and painful
    These in-ear buds come with apple products. Everyone uses them. Not much to explain, really. They are not very high quality and hurt my ear after wearing for a few minutes. Only pro besides that they are free is that I have them when my other IEM or earbuds break

      I could take a dump in your hand and that is free too.
      Joking aside (and I'm not tryin to be rude, either, just making a joke) these things sound awful to me, and are uncomfortable as hell...thus, 1 star

      The ones that came with the iPhone 4 are better than the old ones and they still suck. The sound isn't terrible although they lack extension and are thin sounding. But they sound so closed off and claustrophobic to me; which is the exact opposite of a great pair of earbuds like the old Sony's and Aiwa's or the great Yuin's and Senns of today.

      Just to clarify somthing:
      The headphones that come with all Apple products (iPod, iPhone, etc.) aren't the In-Ear headphones. Though they ostensibly fit in the ear, they are called either "Earphones" or "Earphones with Remote and Mic". And yes, they suck.
      The In-Ear Headphones which are only sold by themselves, however, are pretty damn great. They are comfortable dual driver phones with a clear, well-balanced sound with just enough bass for me (I listen to mostly jazz and orchestral).
