The cables would work fine with a MacBook pro or any mac for that matter. The input and output quality are more than night and day from apple ear buds!! You don't know what good sound is if your happy with the apple ear buds. The cable it comes with works as a mic for android devices. The volume, and fast forward/rewind don't work on the cable for androids. Bose doesn't sell one that does unfortunately, I've checked, twice.
You should buy them.
