I decided to try a set of the new Apple EarPods with my Razr Maxx (Android 4.0.4) after reading this article (http://m.androidcentral.com/earpods-ear-holes-android).

I can listen to music, and for the price they don't sound bad. But unlike Mr. Nickinson, I have not been able to get the mic to work with the phone. I can hear the person on the other end, but all they hear is high-pitched squealing. It doesn't matter which end the call originated.

Has anyone else tried these with an Android device, and if so, how has it worked out for you?

Apologies if this is the wrong forum.

Wrong forum xP!

I read somewhere that EarPod mics do not work with Android.
I think it was like, Engadget or something.
