Do these earphones work with an iPod nano 2nd generation?

I have an iPod nano 2nd gen. I know that the volume control and skip buttons won't work but will the earphones themselves work with my device?

    Yes, they will work. In addition, they will work with any audio equipment that has a standard 3mm headphone input jack (which is virtually everything from laptops, other MP3 players, some celll phones, etc). However, you are correct, the volume and skip buttons will not work, and will only work with the proper iPhone or iPod Touch generation.

  • I spoke to an Apple rep at the Apple store (1-800-MY-APPLE) and he went and double checked with his supervisor.

    * Headphones - will work
    * Remote buttons - will work
    * Microphone - will not work

    Hope that helps in your purchase.
