Sony Xperia S - lt26i - Do Apple Earpods Work?

Hi,

I have the Sony Xperia S and i was wondering whether i should bother buying the new apple earpods because im not sure whether they work in the Sony Xperia S. If anyone out there has a Sony Xperia S and a pair of the new apple earpods please help me. I know that the old apple headphones dont work but the ipod ones do, so i needed to know about the new ones - earpods, I appreciate people getting back to me! - Thanks

Thanks for that, however when playing music did the sound come out of the phones speakers (Because the earpods are not compatible) or does it come out of the earpods because they are compatable. Thanks for your time.

Hi there,

Well, as far as i know the apple headphones use CTIA standard just as the Xperia S does, so it should work.

Thank you for getting back to me. I get what you mean but i have the Sony Xperia S, an iPhone and an ipod touch (with the old headphones) however only the ipod headphones work, not the iPhones. I appreciate this answer but if any one out there has the earpods for a ipod or iphone and can use them in an Xperia s i would be greatful if you got in touch with me. Thanks

As I'm sure you understand, we can't guarantee that accessories from other manufacturers will work, but I managed to borrow some earpods from and iphone 5 and tried them out with Xperia S. The phone gave a message saying "microphone and buttons not compatible" but when testing, microphone worked just fine. The buttons (volume +/-) on the headset however, did not work.

Re: Sony Xperia S - lt26i - Do Apple Earpods Work?

I am using a Sony Xperia s smartphone and some of my widgets are going mad. They are going deformed. The widgets such as Go ex task killer, YouTube, Track ID, and smarttags are deforming. The track ID button on the widget keeps moving below the rectangle, the YouTube video squares keeps on going straight so all the vids arnt staggerd and the smart tag widget keeps on going small in size. Also the favorite contacts widget with 4 people takes the 4 people in, makes their photos small and adds another 2 blank boxes

I would really appreciate if you could help me on this or ask one of your friends or co workers! Thanks

I bought apple Earpods today. I love them. But the volume rocker doesn't work at all. Not even the middle button. The microphone does work though.
