Currently, only one button headphones work with android. Three button headphones only work with Apple devices. As i understand, this is a limitation of the Android OS, though i wonder how hard would it be for a dev to patch this functionality.
Most 3rd party players from the market (doubletwist, poweramp) have built-in controls so that you can play/pause/skip/etc via the one single button.
I am using a pair of Shure SE535 with my phone and only my center button works, the other two don't function.
