Not the new microphone the old ones.
I have an iPhone 4
The buttons (turn on/ off music, volume and voice control) work just fine.
I tried to use another pair of headphones and they worked fine.
if it's under warrenty get a new pair (everything you get in the box is under the same warrenty)
if it's not buy a new headset from apple or any other headset
