    is the volume off? I actually use Bose and the Apple Earbuds all the time....they both work just fine. My Bose have an on/off switch, but that has nothing to do with the earbuds.

    Remember, when you plug in your headphones you will have a different volume profile then when you unplug them...so if sound is up full blast when they are unplugged, it can be muted when you plug them in.

    Is it a problem with the jack not going in, jbsalee?

    Do you know if there's a high level control like on the iPod?
    I don't have mine yet.

    Make sure the plug has two black rings.

    My Bose Noise Cancellation 3 with telephone cable works just fine.
    I love to use them for Skype calls and watching movies etc.
    Most likely written on my iPad

    I have same problem. Is the color of the rings important? The one from my Ipod has two rings but there are white. A Sony headset has two but they are green
    tnx

    I have Bose and my jack won't fit my iPad.
    I was told I need to purchase an adapter from Apple is this correct?

    This really helped!! I checked for the two rings and they was there. I just had to push real hard.
