Need help with some headphones.

I recently bought a pair of iphone headphones. Now, seeing as how I don't understand logic, I use them with a Galaxy S3. This is where the problems start. When I plug them in all the way, the headphones work, but the mic doesn't. When I plug them in partially (just before they click into place), the mic works, but the headphones don't at all. I think it may be that the order of the rings (forgot the correct term) on the jack are different from the rings in the phone slot. Please confirm, I have no idea, and have looked around, without success.

Hmm... Perhaps the microphone cable has come loose in the wire and isn't connecting right? I'd try it out with a similar pair of headphones, maybe a friend's, and see if that works. Good luck!
