Will the new Apple earbuds work with my pre-2009 iPod classic?

I have a pre-2009 2GB iPod classic. I have been told by one person that the new Apple earbuds will not work with it, and by another person that they will but the remote option will not be available. Which, if either, is correct?

    The second statement, you can hear audio, but unless its the 7th gen/ 2009 classic the remote will NOT work.

  • The new EarPods will work with your device. I had just look at what the EarPods worked with a few minutes ago.
