LOL many of the third party headphones don't work on the Iphone, but the Zune headphones are one of the few that actually work.

Man people paid $500 to $600 and many of their 3 third party headphones don't work on Iphone.

You'll need to buy a $10 headphone adapter if you want most third party headphones to function correctly, which sounds like a great business plan to us: just break an important device function, and sell the solution for fun and profit.

The headphone jack on the iPhone is recessed, so headphones with more plastic around the jack will not fit.

As far as I know the ipod-headphones and the zune-headphones are pretty much the same except for the color and the fact that the zune ones have magnetic strips (which I love, too bad my headphones broke)
