Default Beats branded earphones do not fully work on the HTC ONE?

Well I went out and purchased a brand new pair of beats earphones and have to say...I really like them! They sound Great...

However there's one problem, they're not fully functional on my HTC ONE or any other android device. Sound comes out of them of course, but you can not raise or lower the volume, or play and pause music. Those features will only work with an iphone? Really HTC?

Now doesn't HTC pretty much own beats? Doesn't my phone say beats on the rear of the phone? I find it pretty silly that a pair of $100 headphones that are beats branded don't fully function correctly on a Flag ship phone that is also beats branded.

I don't want to start downloading apps or what not to somehow make my earphones work with 2 clicks or 3 or 4 clicks , etc....Earphones at this price that are branded by pretty much the same company should work 100% work flawlessly out of the box.
