I got an iPhone mic with one button off of eBay, ie this one:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/180654215373?...#ht_3008wt_934

I tought, for 2$ I'll give it a try!

To my surprise, everything works... Mic is working fine, button is working fine, audio sounds as good as any!

Does anyone else would care to test an iPhone accesorie and confirm that it is working on their device as well?

Even if the mic you bought was marketed as being for iPhones, it is a very standard 3.5mm mic jack.

It's not a "standard" 3.5mm jack, it is a TRRS 3.5mm connector.

The pinout of the TRRS on the iPhone is not the same as most of android devices. So, most of the time, the iPhone accessories won't work on most Android devices. Mic won't work, controllers won't work and sound could be distrorted.

That is why I ask people with iPhones compatible accessories to test it out. If it works, it could mean a whole new possibilities for accesories, like those:

I received one of those phone handsets that plug into the headphone as a gift, and it turned out it doesn't work with my Optimus G. Well, at least now I know...

You mean you received an iPhone headset and tried it on the Optimus G?

Nothing at all works? Or just one specific part?

I tried with a pair of OEM Apple headset, the sound and the control was working, but not the mic nor the vol+/-

Well, it's a phone handset, which plugs into any phone. It's not specifically made for the iPhone. The speaker works, but the mic doesn't.

I just wanted to confirm that my Sony MDR-EX38IP will only work to listen to music, no audio controls and no mic functionality.

Probably it won't work on other devices.... It's strange that goes on your G!
But if you need something similar i think that if you search you can find it... It must be a normal 3.5jack
