Will the EarPods work with other smartphones and audio devices?

The new EarPods look like incredible headphones and I'm wondering if I can use them with my Android device since I'm not an iPhone user. I understand the remote and volume control are software based and thus not supported, but what about the audio enhancements.

  • They're going to work with anything that uses a 3.5mm headphone jack, same as the current apple earbuds and any other headphones. Audio quality will be just as good (or at least as good as the phone's audio chip can output).
    I'm not 100% sure on the control buttons but there's a chance they might work with android phones too.

  • Apart from the buttons, the audio should work with any other device, since the 3.5mm audio jack is not proprietary to Apple.

  • It's just a standard 3.5mm head phone, so yes.

  • Well, it depends on the sounds your Android Phone give to the Apple EarPods through the earphone jack. The best now is to pre-order the iPhone 5 - it comes with Apple EarPods, and aslo many great features (it comes bundled with iOS 6).
