I currently have these PowerBeats by Dr. Dre - Earphones from Beats by Dr. Dre and it work to play/pause and skip tracks but not wolume control...

    The controls either work or they don't. You get the best experience with the controls with an iphone/iOS devices, also you get some stuff with Android, but I think that's it. It's the OS that matters, and if it supports it.
