With the iEA15BLK from iLuv, you can control your iPod and iPhone no matter what headphones you are using. This in-line remote lets you adjust the volume, play, pause, or change the track. You can even hold the center button to use the “Voice Over” feature for your iPod shuffle 3G, and a voice will identify which track or playlist is currently playing.
Got a pair of headphones you already love, but wish you had iPod controls? Rather than buying new phones, this in-line remote lets you add music control for Apple devices.

Works With Any Standard Headphones
iPod users can attach the iEA15 remote adapter to any pair of headphones with a standard 3.5mm plug, without sacrificing sound quality.
Control Your Music
Just like the Apple headphones included with most iPods, these will let you control volume, play/pause, next track, and previous track. Equipped with a remote chip provided by Apple, it'll work with most iPod models.
Works With Mac Computers
Mac's computers also allow you to use headphone remotes. This device is compatible with the following models:
MacBook (13.3-inch, Late 2009), MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2008), MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2009), MacBook Pro (17-inch, Late 2008), Mac Pro (Early 2009), iMac (24-inch, Early 2009), iMac (20-inch, Early 2009), and current models.
The iEA15 also lets you control iTunes on your iPad.
The iEA15 also supports the VoiceOver feature on the iPod shuffle 3rd generation (the 4th generation model has a dedicated button). Press and hold the center button to hear the title and artist playing or to switch playlists.

The headphones have a short section of cable with a 3.5mm male audio jack on the left can. Bose provides a short male-female extension cable and a long male-female extension cable, which is...okay.
Bose should be providing THIS cable.
All I have to do to interrupt my iPod audio is to reach up near my collarbone and click the button on the iLuv remote. Handy! And it's just the perfect length for where I choose to wear my Nano (clipped to my shirt collar or under my shirt).
I use this setup nearly every day when I exercise and I did manage to wear one of the iLuv Remote cables out while it was still under warranty. Hey, that happens with these kinds of tiny audio cables. I wasn't expecting much when I placed a warranty claim (Altec Lansing simply didn't respond to my claim at all when a fairly nice set of earbuds I bought failed in a week. Hrumph!)
Yet iLuv responded IMMEDIATELY and sent me a new iPod Remote! It was the best, easiest warranty claim I've ever made. Thanks, iLuv!
Buy with confidence.
I won't be using it, however, and I'll keep it only because I may have a need for it at some point and it's almost as expensive to ship back as it is to just keep.
This is the issue-- if you have a higher-end (let's say in the $200+ range) earphone you may be able to notice a change in the sound when the remote is used with your earphones. I noticed that the decay of the instruments was decreased, for example, the strings of an orchestra or the reverberation of a bass guitar would be cut slightly shorter than just using the earphone alone. Also, there was a decrease in sound stage, both depth and width-- just slightly but there. The sound was a little more two dimensional and was not as involving. It is not a huge degradation of the sound but why spend all that money in the first place unless one is looking for the best sound quality possible at a given price point? Your mileage will vary as to whether or not your earphones can pick up the difference, whether or not you can hear the difference, and whether or not it bothers you enough to give up the functionality of the remote (which I miss; I like being able to pause the song or change the volume without going directly to my iPhone). For only $6 or so, it's not a huge decision (if you can get free shipping). It may or many not work well for you in your particular application but you won't know until you get them.
I read several reviews for this and other brands of iPod remotes and all seemed to have durability issues. I've used this several times mountain biking and have had no problems so far. The controls are kind of small for use with gloves (biking, snow boarding, etc), often accidentally pause when I want to change volume, but this is still way better than having to pull out my iPod Touch when on the bike. It is also far better than the Apple iPod remote phones where the control is located by your neck. Not so easy with gloves, always had to stop to adjust the volume or change selection- or more likely the bud fell out of my ear. Just wasn't worth taking the iPod biking with the Apple remote phones. Another minor, although expected, issue with the iLuv remote is it makes the cord kind of long and easier to get caught by branches.
Haven't used it long enough to determine durability, but it's so far withstood prodding with gloves (not delicate), and if it does break I'll just get another. It's worth it.
It worked as advertised, for ONE DAY! It has since, on several tries, never worked again... it does still pass audio, so it basically is now, nothing more than a weak (since the cable on it is as thin and as cheap as possible) headphone extension.
I tried resetting the iPod, cleaning the plug and jack, and altering the iPod preferences, and this still does nothing.
Cannot recommend this at all. Too bad you can't rate as Zero stars.
And to Apple, who, if they had written the software correctly, so you could do this without a remote control... BAD! This one issue, is enough to jailbreak your device, as I have since discovered a little hack which allows you to pause, skip, and control volume, without waking your device. Since this hack has existed for more than 2 years, and Apple still hasn't fixed it themselves... (Activator or External iPod Controls).
