In the Apple link that you provided scroll down to " Compatibility + "

Note that all the listed devices are indeed Apple products; i.e., no mention of "PC", Windows, etc..

Your earphones are likely CTIA/Apple and will not work with directly with your pc.

There may be an adapter that could be used.

Just for representative purposes, a product such as the following:

You will need to and should verify the pinouts and applicability before buying any such adapter.
 
You can do what I did with my headphones. I use Bose QC25s and then use a splitter.

My QC's are for Android (I just bought an Android cable) but I do have an Apple cable - problem is left it in my other country of origin, so can't tell you if it works. I am sure it does though
