By default (I think) the sound settings are set to the Sony noise cancelling headphones. Try changing the settings in Settings/Sound/Accessories.

edit- lol just realised there is missing text, exuse my typo
edit2- found plenty of 5 conductor audio devices (profetional use apears)
edit3-Seems Noise Canceling headsets Like Xperia Z2 NC are not so hard to find

I Live in Brazil, and here we have 6543 Z2 Model. Here Z2 has Digital TV and came with attachment for antenna, who has a audio adapter. Might be Apple Earpods with this adapter works, but I need to wait my Z2 arrive. I Bought in Sony official store here in Brazil.

The antenna adapter here in Brazil :

note to all
anyway ive found out that apple earphones not working is actualy caused by a lack of listed device types (something to do with some configs n stuff in /etc) < i think i saw some samsung mods to add compatability
(would be nice for Xperia Z2, i found my Old Xperia Headphones dont work yet they are xperia)

This problem is so strange, when I went to store last weekend, I didn't know about function of NC headset, and now I need to wait my Z2 arrive. I hope that Z2 Brazillian antenna adapter might be a ''solution'' and my Apple earpods.

Guys, I have some news!!

I bought my Xperia Z2 in Sony Store here in Brazil and last friday Sony has delivered my Z2. I thought I wouldn't like Xperia, but I've liked so much!! But, let's talk about earpods!!

My Apple Earpods doesn't worked, like I expected, and I used the original inbox earpods for one day. Last month I bought a new Apple Earpods, because my has broken the mic, and he was delivered last week as well. So, I opened the new earpods and I tried on Z2 and he worked! It's so strange, but the new earpods worked!!
Might be the differences between broken mic, I don't know, but now i'm using my new Apple earpods usually, even after update .314.

I Will buy STH30 in USA as well, might be that I Will use him!

I Now, this is so strange, about the Apple earpods, but now I'm so happy with my Apple earpods has worked!!

The old Xperia devices (Xperia 2011 product line) used to have a diffrent audio jack standards (something with ctia), so they only work with the 2011 Xperia handsets.

My apple earpods work flawless with my Z2, but only the mic and the media button works (thats a normal because the 3 button headphones are apple exclusive because of some stupid apple patents).
