I need to replace my Xperia Play headphones and I have been looking online. How do I know if they will work with my Play?

I am looking at these 3 right now. But I am open to any suggestions as long as it is around 45$ with shipping to Canada.

Sony MDR-EX210B

Sony MDR-EX77S

Altec Lansing MZX406

My ideal solution would be something that works with Play and any other future device I own. What headset would you guys recommend and also are there any cheap adaptors if I end up wanting something that wont work with the play.

Also does the Sony Livesound Hifi headset works with other non-sony devices.

Thanks so much to anyone that helps. I want to make an order soon so it ships asap so please help

As of Sony ones, see the compatibility list on their webpage.

As of any other, they most surely won't work as far as they have a buit-in mic.

Now, if you get a headset (not headphone) compatible with your Play, they will only work on SonyEricsson phones, some Nokia and some Samsung before the Galaxy S.

You can buy an adapter, but... well, see this and this.

Any headphones made for the iPhone (including controls, a mic) like the Altec ones won't work. The Sony ones should be fine.
