Groid, part of this thread's issue is differentiation between headPHONEs and headSETs. To me and "most" I know, a headset includes a microphone, headphones (in-ear, on ear, over ear, whatever) do not. Some headsets (I have one) are monophonic and have the TRS configuration, but most lately seem to be stereo with TRRS. I've not personally seen a headphone with TRRS but research shows they exist for special situations (no common between left and right).

I have found all TRS headphones to work, but have not had good luck with TRRS headsets ... only tried my Motorola and wife's iPhone models, though.
