Bose headphones don't work?

Do some brands of headphone not work with the iphone?

It seems like my bose earbud headphones aren't recognized by the iphone and music is instead played through the speaker.

Anything I can do? I'm at work and my day would be soooo much better with some Hendrix

I bought the Bose In-Ear...

Headphones and also bought the Shure Adapter w/microphone. It turns out that I don't need an adapter for the Bose In-Ear Headphones, since I bought them in November. Earlier Bose Headphones require an adapter! I think you can find an adapter for as low as $4 on up. The Shure adapter w/microphone was selling for $39 plus tax (US Dollars) at the Apple Store in San Francisco.

It's not sticking in all the way into the recessed headphone jack.

I got these adapters for my headphones:

I prefer the cable rather than the adapter as adapters tend to add too much stress on the board.
