    I recently was able to snag a pair of iPhone 3GS headphones with the mic and i tried using it for my iPod touch and the headphones work but the attached mic doesn't. If i try voice memos it says i need an external microphone even if i have them plugged in. Also the volume switch doesn't work on the headphones either.
    HELP

    I don't think so, with the same OS and everything...You should test it out with other iTouches (if you have more) to see :'

    I'm pretty sure that voice memos only work on the 3G iPod.

    EDIT: Wow, I'm retarded. I forgot we are in the 3G IPod forum. Try unplugging and then replugging in the headphones.
