All headphones works good with the iPhone, even though you don’t have the handsfree button to pause/play/answer.

I’m loving this new notification thing, makes me answer questions first everytime.

Actually, the play/pause/answer button and mic WILL work. The volume + and – buttons will not. :( The headphones will work just fine.

I’m confused, does the In-Ear headphones even have a mic? Is it the ones that comes with the iPhone? Thought those were ear-buds.

I would recommend upgrading to sony in ear phones with bass boost or the ones that loop over your ear if you plan to do any moving while enjoying your music.

I enjoy my Bose in ear headphones. It’s the second pair I’ve owned. I wore the first pair out after hours upon hours of use. The second generation ones that I have now are completely redesigned though to stop any issues the first-gen version had.

Shout out for the V-Moda Vibe II’s

The base is amazing + they come with optional over-the-ear attachments + the cord is cloth + the mic/sound quality is excellent with the iPhone.

Does anyone know about compatibility with the first Generation iPhone?

Lightlyseared's avatar

They will work just like the set that came with the iphone ie you’ll have a mic and a call answer button but the volume buttons won’t work.

Are you sure about that lightlyseared? The first-gen iphone’s headphone port is not even with the top of the casing so not a lot of headphone sets work with it. In the second-gen iphone the headphone port is flush with the top of the casing./

@hypeserver They have a normal looking apple connector so I don’t see why it shouldn’t fit, Apple says audio is compatible and a number of users have stated on the Apple website product comments bit that they do work with 1g iPhones so yes I’m pretty sure about that.
