Quoted from my Facebook status: "Wow! The Apple Earpods are a complete blow away experience! It can totally replace my everyday earphones :D satisfying bass on par with HTC's coveted 'Beats Audio' (if u turn on bass booster), and this is coming from a person who has owned Bose in ears, Sennheiser in ears and over ears and Beats in ears ^^ Much improved clarity and mids too, very balanced EQ."

The Apple earpods are by no means a low quality earphone. When you wear them, the full thump of the bass will definitely blow you away! As expected for all Apple earphones, these earpods are superb when it comes to instrument clarity and separation too.
