Works with iPhone and iPad but.......
on 24 June 2011
I've had this item for 5 months now. I initially used the device with a Nokia N8 then an iPad, iPad 2 and finally an iPhone 4. Apart from occasional disconnect/auto-reconnect (which may have been the fault of the device OS), it worked fine on ALL devices, allowing ALL controls (Play, Stop, Pause, Skip etc) to work.
While they are not the most comfortable headsets to wear, I don't think that ANY in-ear type would be for extended periods anyway.
However, the right earpiece has snapped. I've been very careful with the handling of headset as I use it daily, so this came as a great shock.
I'm reluctant to purchase another one as I can see from another review that the same thing has happened to someone else, leading me to think, this is a design fault.
A great shame, once you go wireless there's no turning back, but this style of headset are few and far between. I have the wrong type of earlobe for the earbuds style generally provided with media devices, they just don't stay in. So the neckband did the job for me.
In conclusion, as seems to be the case with Nokia these days, great product, great potential, disappointing execution.
Unfortunately I sold my Nokai BH-214 when I got the BH-505, so may get another one, at least this allows you the wear the headset of your choice.
If you choose to get one, handle with care.
I hope this helps
