    I've noticed that since the update my OP3 is not able to recognize the microphone of my in-ears anymore. They use the apple-type controls with a volume rocker.

    Specifically, the microphone is no longer detected. There's only a buzzing sound when plugging them in. I know this has to do with the way the control remote communicates with apple devices, but the last time I had this issue was on a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 way back in the day. So I figured this had been fixed in future Android version and wasn't vendor specific.

    I was however able to make it work with some fiddling around. When connecting, half-insert the 3.5mm plug until a clicking sound is heard on the headphones. Then fully plug in. This results in the microphone working but is not very reliable.
