Other post is not entirely correct. Audio and Mic work, but also, nearly all of the remote features will work too, including:
- Press button once to play/pause
- Press twice to skip to next track
- Press three times to return to previous track.
The only feature that doesn't work on earlier models is the volume buttons - they will work on the models described in previous post (including iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4).
There is an Apple Support article that lists the compatability of their wired headset models with all of the various iPhone, iPod and iPad types:

(Apple doesn't allow posting of URLs, so I had to fudge it a bit)
