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 don't work but the ipod ones do, so i needed to know about the new ones - earpods, I appreciate people getting back to me! - Thanks

p.s also could i know whether the earpods are from the iPhone or form the iPod touch - Thanks!

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

If I recall correctly you posted this question a while back?

Anyway, I tried this back then with a pair of earpods from iPhone 5 and they worked just fine except for the play/pause button on the cord. Volume up/down did however work. So, yes - they should work.

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

The iPhone headphone usually have an extra white bit of plastic which made them incompatible with the Sony Xperia S but the iPod ones don't. (The old headphones) Just wondering whether it is the same with the earpods. I appreciate your help!
