does remote work with iPod nano 5

Does the remote volume/start/stop/skip control on the headphones work with the iPod Nano 5th generation?

I have these headphones and they work fine with my iPhone 3GS. However, although I can listen to music on my iPod Nano 5th gen. with them, I cannot control volume/start/stop/skip with the headphone remote as I can on the iPhone.

Help please.

    Absolutely, YES!
    I have an Iphone 3GS and have tried it on my Ipod Nano 5th Gen and it worked smoothly.
    The volume control and the Answer button (which, when pressed once would pause a song and when pressed twice would go to the next song) works perfectly.

  • It doesn't work with my 5th generation iPod nano. I don't think my headphones are broken because the headphones work fine with my MacBook Pro.

    I'm not sure what the problem is, but I'm on the same boat as you.
