Welcome to Android Central! Make sure the phone's headphone jack is clear of any debris by blowing it out with a can of compressed air. When you plug in the earphones, make sure the plug is in all the way -- sometimes if it's not quite pushed in 100%, some of the functions won't work due to lack of proper contact.

Sometimes, slight variations in manufacturing tolerances can make enough of a difference to prevent something working on only one device or accessory. So far as I can see, it could be the earphones or the phone in your case, but I’d guess earphones.
