    I bought 2 month ago Oneplus buds Z and whole this time buds auto-pause music all the time even when buds are still in my ear. Then i need to push them littlebit to make music continue and maybe it last 30sec and then stop again. Why oneplus do not make firmware update where we can disable ear-detection sensor? Its clearly faulty and too sensitive. I really cant recommend these buds to anyone before they fix ear detection not to be so sensitive or option to disable it completely.

    Does this Troubleshooting guide help?

    No it did not help. It just that that proximity sensor is way too sensitive. When music stop i can even jump and shake my head and buds do not fall out. But when i littlebit push them in (i feel they do not even go deeper) music continue. So damn sad because these buds would otherwise be perfect for me but i cant understand what engineers have thinked when they made that sensor so sensitive and do not make one of the most important option to disable proximity sensor. I just hope there is even possibility to disable that sensor in future update rather than its build into hardware.

    I agree they should disable that in-ear detection. When running or walking faster, buds just stop/pause playing the music which is really annoying. Also, sometimes they pause music just by chewing a gum in mouth. Honestly this feature is really not needed for most people who just use their buds on regular basis.
