Default [Q] Dr. Dre Beats Tour ControlTalk with Android

Hi All,
I just got a pair of Dr. Dre Beats Tour headphones and the microphone doesn't seem to work with my Android phone. I tried searching a lot and can't seem to find a lot of information on this apart for a few posts with very few details. Does anybody know if there is a way to get the microphone to work? I am currently running Android 2.1.

Thanks!

Gonna go ahead and guess this is spam, seeing as you have 1 post... and I said in my first message that I searched a lot but wasn't able to find anything useful.

You probably won't find that much information about this topic, well not useful information anyways. As far as i know, the tour doesn't work on a lot of android phones. The ones we have tested on are, Desire and wildfire. The reseller where we got the headphones from claims that the tour works with Nexus one, however i have not tested it. It would be interesting to know if other brands work...

P.s my beats studio works on all android phones with 3.5mm plug... and i have no idea why as physically, the plug is exactly the same.

Thanks for the info. Yep, I think it has something to do with the ControlTalk features on the cable... I tried my brother's Beats Solo, which came with the same ControlTalk cable, and they also didn't work.

I have an HTC Aria by the way. Just tried with Cyanogen 2.2 and also not working. Seems like we should be able to figure out a way to make this work, especially if it works on the Nexus One... they are both HTC phones after all. I wonder if there's a special driver for it installed on the Nexus One?

No dice on my Evo with my DiddyBeats. Wish I could take them back.

I actually got a Samsung Captivate and the mic works! Plus and minus controls don't, but at least I can answer/hang up/pause music and use the microphone.
