Can this type of earphones be used with other apple devices too?

I need a headset good for using my MacBook, iphone and possible more apple devices. Thanks!

    Yes, the head phones work on any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack. This is standard across most media devices, with some exceptions for example mobile phones. These headphones will be fully functional on your iphone, with the buttons, mic and headphones all working. But for your mac, only the headphones will work, and you will not be able to change the volume or use the mic.

    Hope this helps.

  • The headphones themselves work on all devices with a normal headphone jack (even non apple devices), but depending on the device the buttons may not work right. The volume buttons, answer call, and end call buttons work on my iPhone 3G. All the buttons work on my iPod Touch 2G, iPhone 4, and recent MacBook Pro.
