Re: Do Apple Earpods work in the Sony Xperia Z?

Just tried it out for you and yes they do work. Audio, voice worked just fine.  The volume controls did not do anything but the middle button of the volume controls did start and stop the walkman app playing music.  I used the Apple earbuds that came with the iPhone 4s not the newly designed ones but they should work the same.

Thanks so much, i really appreciate it! - Just to clarify its the plastic ones right, not the ones with the noise canceling rubber?

     But anyway, thanks again. I really appreciate it.

These ones, but again the new ones should work the same as they only changed the actual earbud portion not the connector that goes into the phone.

Re: Do Apple Earpods work in the Sony Xperia Z?

There may be a compaibilty issue. I now have a Xperia Z running on Android 4.3. My Apple Earpods work fine. I recently owned a Z1 Compact where they wore´ked fin in Android 4.3, but NOT in Android 4.4. There were other issues too with 4.4 that forced me to get rid of my Z1 Compact. I was not impressed.

 

So depending a bit on which version of Android you are running, it may or may not work.

 

I am never upgrading my Android again.
