    I have a mid-2009 13" MBP and just installed XP with SP3. I'm trying to get my Apple In-Ear headphones to work in Windows - the sound comes out fine but the microphone does not appear to record properly. It records, but on playback it sounds like a voice talking reaaaaaaaaaly slowly... very strange.

    The headphones and mic both work under OS X, so is it a Windows driver problem? :confused:

    Has anyone got their Apple In-Ears' microphone to work under any version of Windows?

    EDIT Sep 22: I tried the built in mic and got the exact same distorted recording. Looks like it's a widespread problem! http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2049697&tstart=0

    I take it that the mic can't be used in Windows then. Bummer..

    Absolutely no fix.
    Retarded huh?
    I took mine into the apple store twice, and all I got was the blind faith of the employees "Just wait, Apple surely will fix it!"
    ...A statement I find hard to believe considering the thread with 60,000 views on all sorts of audio malfunctions with the new mbps in bootcamp. http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2037093&tstart=15
    Idk what to do. :mad:

    Yep, I'm very surprised to find there's a problem with the volume and mic :(

    So is the ONLY way to use a mic in Windows to buy a USB one?
