This looks exactly like the inline mic/remote that's designed to work with Apple devices, except that it works fully on Android (when using the former on Android devices, the Volume controls don't work). It's pretty simple and straightforward, seems durable, and the length can be a good thing (it's pretty long), yet it can also be a bad thing (it can get caught into things if you're not careful). Would have been nice if Android- and Apple-compatible wires were included in a single Bose QC25 purchase though. It's also not the tangle-free style we've been seeing as of late, but, all in all, it's a very good product. I don't regret my purchase (just nit-picking).
