Apple and Android headphone wiring standard is different. You can either buy an converter or change wiring on headset connector. See here. Apple Headphone is Not Working On Android or Windows Phone

I don't have Android Marshmallow but following apps can easily achieve the goal on Android Lollipop 5.1. Should not fail on your OS, I believe. Let me know the result in any case. MacroDroid When headphones are plugged: Trigger: Headphones Insert/Remove → Headphones Inserted Action: Volume Change → select Notification and Ringer, and configure ...

Unfortunately, Android and IOS specify different hardware specs for the remote feature. The way the clicks get registered by the devices are not compatible. Sad, but true. There are very few good solutions that I've found, but I have found a couple. So far, the best I've done is this combination: Samsung makes earbuds with a mic/remote specifically for ...

Problem I have been recently using my beats tour with my HTC One. It was working fine and then it stopped working. First I thought either my phone had a problem or the earphones. I thought of claiming my warranty but, before that I did following tests: Plugged different earphones in my HTC One from Apple, Samsung and HTC. All worked fine. Plugged my Beats ...

You might consider Bluetooth headphones. They sound worse than wired at the same price, but make up for that by not depending on how good the headphone amp in your phone is. Relevantly, the volume and play/pause/next/prev buttons are a standard part of the protocol, so one set of 'phones will work with anything that has Bluetooth.

Here's a XDA article by Mishaal Rahman that basically says: Even without A2DP profile on Android (which is not implemented even in Android 8 yet), you can do a low-quality Bluetooth streaming via Hands-free Profile (HFP) to Android from another Android phone (sorry iPhone owners!) Install Tasker and a AutoVoice plugin on the source phone, and create the ...

I've found that I can long press the power button on the headphones to unpair them from the phone. Thanks me. Anyhow, if anyone here does know the answer to some third party program or some other solution to unpairing bluetooth devices from unresponsive phones, please comment for future visitors.

The “Micro-USB” headphone used by LG GS155 is not really an USB device — it just uses the USB connector for the same analog audio signals as in usual 3.5 or 2.5 mm round connectors. Look at the MicroUSB to 3.5 or 2.5 jack headset pinout. In order to work with such headsets, the phone needs to have the appropriate hardware to detect the type of connected ...

Software wise: HeadsetBlocker & Wizdroid both attempt to block headphone buttons. However both are very outdated. Can install and try. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.idunnolol.headsetblocker&hl=en https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.yifandroid.wizdroids&hl=en Hardware wise: You can try a 4 pole to 3 pole adapter ...

What I did -- and my problem is an ear that doesn't work properly rather than an earbud that's been washed too often -- was to shell out for Poweramp which has built in balance controls along with its rather elaborate tone controls and equaliser. Well worth the money for solving this problem.

Double tapping on the button with two little dots works for me

Sure you can, there's a product that uses the audio port as an extra button, check this: http://gizmodo.com/add-a-button-to-any-android-phone-with-this-genius-head-1221431712 Maybe this is more like a comment than an answer, but actually i can't add comments untill i reach 50 points. By the way, as microphone it's an analog input for the android, you can ...

Stock Samsung headphones have 3 buttons, volume +/- and pause. They also have a mic. They are only $5 on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-EHS64AVFWE-Premium-Stereo-Headset/dp/B007C5S3AU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1362357220&sr=8-1&keywords=samsung+headphones Admittly, they aren't the best sounding and I don't like the remote being so close ...

Go to the Play Store and get Headset Button Controller. You can try the free version first to make sure it works. The app allows you to use the center button to control everything. You can, for example, set the volume to adjust with 4 clicks of the center button. For me, it starts at 20 percent and keeps rising to 100 percent until I press once again to ...

it's the most frequently used apps while the earphones are plugged in. just open the app you want to show up 4 or 5 times in a row while the page buddy is active (earphones plugged in) and it will show up in the recommended apps. repeat for the next 3 apps you want to show. There's usually 4 recommended apps. This goes for all of the page buddy pages, ...

Please see the comment by @t0mm13b . I've tried EarPod with couple of Samsung android phones. The sound works fine as expected. But the mic doesn't work and only gives a constant noise when tried to record audio. Also play, pause, vol. up, vol. down controls are not working with android phones. If you need only its amazing sound quality (for $29), go for ...

Sound purely depends on phone make and model and the headsets too. Most of the phones support 5-band custom Equalizer (you can tweak them just like that) and some phones only support the given presets like Bass, Flat, Treble , 5.1 Channel etc. Sony phones have their own technology like xLoud and ClearBass. So it depends on various things. Also you can ...

if your Bluetooth Headphone Paired with Device, you can find Mac Address with this Apps : Bluetooth Finder or Bluetooth Address Finder

After THREE YEARS of searching for a fix... I think I just found a solution - and felt obligated to spread the information. Just plug the headphones in slowly... That's actually all there was to it... The notification icon for a plugged in audio jack at the top of the screen will show up differently if you did it right.

Yes: there are essentially three possibilities. Wired headphones often have extra controls inline (on the cable). You have to be careful when buying these: the way the controls signal to the phone is not standardized, so which one you need depends on who manufactured your phone. It's really easy to find "iPhone-compatible" ones, but you may have to search ...

This will fix your problem: download Headset Button Controller (trial), it allows you to override all the headset button functions, override what they do. With that in mind, set ALL button functions to "Disabled". This will prevent any skip tracks, previous tracks, or pauses generated by cracked mic. Hope that helps


2

There is no software fix because it uses physically different pins on the headphone connector. The hardware simply does not support it. There are plenty of good android compatible headphones out there though.

The Apple EarPods are working on my Nexus 6P perfectly, save the inline volume controls. The microphone button pauses music on a short press, and skips the current track to the next on pressing it twice in rapid succession. Long pressing it open Google Voice Search.

It's the Smart Connect app. You can simply toggle it off under the Events tab. Smart Connect starts up any app or action that you have associated with specific accessory such as Headphones.

Ensure Tasker is installed and enabled. I tested this with Tasker 4.8 on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. If you are using Tasker on Marshmallow, it will work more effectively if you disable battery optimisation under the Android Settings (although this may also drain the battery quicker). To do this, navigate to Battery -> Triple dot menu (in the upper-right hand ...

I faced a similar situation. Following steps worked for me. Some of the steps might be redudent. 1) restart your phone 2) reset network settings (Setting> back and restore ) 3) change the phone bluetooth name. (I assume this is the solution) 4) set the bluetooth device in pairing mode (long press the power key). And it worked for me. Probably, executing ...

My guess would be that one of the plugs on the headphone cable is slightly off-spec and isn't making good electrical contact in the socket. Swapping it around means the dodgy connector is in the other socket, and maybe that connection is slightly more forgiving. (Of course, it could just as easily be one of the sockets that's slightly off-spec. The symptoms ...

I procured a second wired headset, and it works with the Maven. However, it does not work with the Galaxy S5. I got out my multimeter and tested each connection on each headset, and found that they are wired differently. The ZTE Maven and my new headset use the CTIA/AHJ standard, and the Galaxy S5 and my old headset use the OMTP standard. The difference ...

I am using Macrodroid and Automate to demonstrate what you ask. With Macrodroid You will need to create 2 macros. 1st macro: Headset plugged In the Trigger tab, select Headphones Insert/Remove, then choose Headphones Inserted followed by Any. In the Actions tab, select Volume Change, then give the appropriate permissions. Set the level of each audio ...

As I've already pointed out in a comment on the question, there are plenty of headset control answers (see e.g. this one). Those app give you some added control using your headset, so they allow to define what app shall be started when the headset is plugged in, and using the single headset button they let you perform a multitude of actions like volume ...
