How compatible are these earphones to iPhone 8GB?

My iPhone was a surprise gift from a distant relative, and I'm new to Apple in general, so I'm not even sure what generation my iPhone is.

    If your iphone has a silver backing, the middle button, mic, and earphones will work, and it is a First Generation. If the backing is black or white plastic, check for the presence of a Compass app. If it is there, you have a 3GS, and all functionality is supported. Otherwise, it is a 3G, and in regard to earphones, works identically to the first generation iPhone.
