Earpods compatibility

Hi !
I have a question about the new Apple Earpods. I have an iPod shuffle 3rd gen (the one with controls on the cable) and want to buy the new Earpods for it. The Apple website, however, does not list my iPod as compatible (even though the Earpods have controls on them). Has anyone tried this combination?
