Yeah, I did some more research and it is because the microphone and ground are swapped between the American Headset Jack standard that Nokia uses and the Open Mobile Terminal Platform used by most others except for Apple.
What I will probably do is buy a set of Nokia Purity HD (made by Monster) headphones which can be used wirelessly or wired, and then if I want to use those headphones with another device like my iPod, I can take the wire from my Beats Solo HD. Expensive workaround considering all of the headphones I have, but at least it will be flexible.
