    In that case, return them for a replacement or refund while you still have time.

    But it says that it works with 3GS, and i LOVE those earphones, maybe i should contact apple directly?

    I never said they wouldn't work as they SHOULD work.  I suggest returning them as the current set you have may be faulty or damaged.

    Hi Ricoco,


    I too had exact issue what you were experienced, then I went to Apple autorised service center and submitted my earpods, their it worked with all versions of Apple iphones, but it didn't worked on my 3gs. The service technician suggested for OS  upgrade.Then I came home and I took the backup and upgraded 5.1 to 6.1 as he suggested, also it didn't worked. I was totally frustated and suddenly I got an idea!. What a funny thing here is, a safety pin resolved my issue, I took out all dust which was there in the jack hole. Then I check my earpods, it was amazing you know..MY EAR PODS WORKED!.


    If you still have this issue, I hope this will help you.
