    They will work only on the very latest Macs. Older computers lack the needed special four-conductor headphone connector, and so they will only function as standard headphones, for instance, on the PowerBook and older MacBooks. On current Macs, like the 13" MacBook Pro, the microphone and all of the buttons function fully when plugged in to the headphone port.

  • They should if you have the newest firmware, and software for it.
