Some of you ordered these recently. Let’s hear from you.

I just got my earbuds and they came in the Apple plastic case. Just got them yesterday so haven’t had time to try them out.

I ordered the lightning cables the last time they were on sale. One cord was defective (one of the pins was missing from the phone-side of the cord). Woot provided me with a complete refund as they were out of the product.

apple accessories in bulk packaging = ???

Yes, you don’t get the fancy white retail box. Saves $$.

Can anyone confirm that these are genuine Apple cables and earbuds?

I ordered them the last time they were on here a couple of weeks ago. They are the genuine Apple EarPods and they come in the plastic storage case. Brand new items.

They are genuine Apple cables and earbuds. They just don’t have the fancy retail box.

I ordered the cables from a recent woot off and got them in yesterday. One of the cables works as well as it should and I haven’t tested the other yet. Came in a plain bubble mailer. Genuine Apple cables. Great price for official cables, no complaints, here.

Ordered the lightning cables last time, and they were both defective. I’m skeptical they were even authentic frankly. Woot said they’d ship replacements, then never did and I finally got a refund issued the other day (that has yet to post). I’d love to buy these if they’re authentic and will work, but otherwise it’s not worth the hassle.

I haven’t had any fewer reliability issues with Apple lightning cables than I have with aftermarket ones. The cable insulation always tends to separate from the housing at the lightning end.

I left a message earlier, but it apparently didn’t fully post.

I bought some of these last time they were on sale.

Two sets. (Four total.)

I’ve used one set, and both of them failed after one or two uses (and started acting like the non-licensed ones where they don’t charge and you get the “unapproved charging device” warning (if even that much) when trying to plug in to charge.)

The other sets I haven’t used yet. I’m not too hopeful that they will work consistently. I wish I’d paid attention to the refund, but it was only $15 so I guess no real harm.

I wouldn’t buy them again, though.

YMMV here, but when my one and only Lightning Cable at the time started going bad, I took it to the Apple Store, told an employee in the most non-demanding way possible and they swapped it for one off the shelf.

The IxCC cables I’ve bought in the past (can’t remember if it is here or on Amazon) have been extremely resilient.

No issues. Purchased the cables recently as well as the ear buds. All 3 ear buds came in the Apple plastic case.
