So I have both the in-ear (ordered from amazon, delivered today) and the on-ear (via the lumia 800 bundle) nokia purity headphones. Very interesting behavior. They both have the same ribbon cable with a three button controller, volume +/- and middle button. With the in-ears, all functions work perfectly (volume up/down, middle button single/double/triple press for pause/next track/previous track) but with the on-ear cable, those functions are sporatic to say the least. That is to say, they work if the phone is unlocked, or locked but not asleep. If the phone is asleep, those operations work about 20% of the time.
Very strange. By the way, if you are interested in the on-ear purity hd, I would definetely try them in person first. They don't sound that great, and they are quite slippery on the head.
Here's a picture of both plugs, they look identical other than the L-shape of the on-ear cable:
