    The volume up/down, mic, and center button all works with the NEW 13" MacBook Pro. It's perfect for video iChat and iTunes playback! :) I am very happy about this.

    Why did the OP have to post pics of his computer when he's just talking about the Apple headphones?:confused:

    Did the mic work? I am asking because I thought the input jack was separated from output jack, like on the 15" MBP.

    They are no longer separate on the 13". Single jack now. I just tried this out; Awesome bonus!

    I've read that you can't have input and output at the same time.

    You can?

    Are there any alternatives to the Apple headphones with decent quality? They're too expensive. And what kind of a skype headset do I need to buy? The in ear headphones are great for movies and music but I don't like them for skype - the echo/rustling of the cord annoys me.

    Am I correct in assuming that these will *not* work with the 15 and 17" MBP, due to the separate audio in port?

    They still will. All Unibody notebooks have the same headphone jack as the iPhone, so they all support the 4 point connector. I use the iPhone headset all the time on skype with my Aluminum Macbook.

    DjAmTraX: A little off topic, how do you like the sound quality of the headphones, I read in a couple of reviews people slamed them due to cord noise form the cord rubbing on zippers and jacket, they say you can hear a thud everytime the cord rubs up against something, is it true? :confused:

    I posted this question on another forum post, but I figured this wouldn't hurt here either....

    Has anyone been able to figure out how this input is being handled in the OS?

    I'd love to be able to hack this functionality (since I never use iTunes for listening to music) to control my Pandora One (desktop install) thumbs up, down, and pause/play using the headset controls.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!!
