    As far as I've been able to find out, they work fine on the iPhone 3G - Except for the volume control - you need to use the buttons on the iPhone itself. The mic still works, the one press answer/end call still works, the one press start/stop music still works, and the double press skip tracks still works. It's only because the volume control on the headphone isn't compatible that Apple don't sell this as being suitable for the iPhone 3G.

  • Yes, everything works except the volume up/down buttons :-)

  • I have these headphones in my iPhone 3G right now and the remote/mic do NOT work with this model. It is just as stated on the product's page on the apple store: volume control, track play/pause and call answering are not compatible with the 3G.
