Bought a pair of these but find that they do not work with my samsung galaxy or my iriver mp3 player - disappointing. Why did they come with two identical (yet different coloured) cords? Why not one regular headphone cable and the other a iphone one with the remote inbuilt?
Because the phones are made for apple users, different colour just for aesthetics, so you can mix and match colours. Think the company is a subsidiary of Apple.
