    It won't work. Accessories designed for Apple products only work properly with Apple products due to Apple's use of propriety hardware.

    which is stupid considering there are already two standards for these things not counting Apple.
    It's just a pinout!

    I'd say your best bet is any non-iPhone headset.

    I use an old pair of Apple ear buds (i think from an iPhone 4) with my 1520 and the mic works fine. The buttons don't work as they should, but the microphone does indeed work.

    Apple uses non-standard signaling and control.
