    Hi,

    I was able to snag a pair of Apple headphones with the mic included ( and yes it has the volume switch on it) and its not working with my iPod Touch 3rd gen. 32gb. The sound comes out but the volume switch on the headphones, nor the mic do not work on it. When I try to turn the volume up/down from the earbuds nothing happens, and when I try to record a voice memo with the mic, it tells me to attach an external mic even though there is one plugged in.

    Please Help!

    Tried restarting the iPod?
    This happens to me, often when I jailbreak.
    Sometimes the headphones will receive sound, as well as the speaker, so sound is coming out in the speaker AND headphones.

    Restarting the iPod fixes it for me.

    Good luck!
