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.

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