If it doesn't, I'm afraid you're out of luck, unless you want to get handy and solder on a pair of mini jacks to split the signals. The three ring connectors are more commonly associated with phones, and you might test the headphones in someone's phone to make sure they work.
Just to be clear, Dream's "rings" are the insulators, so his "three rings, or two" is like asking whether it has "four conductors
, or three
". You could probably figure that out for yourself, but I just wanted to make sure there could be no confusion.
