S8 +. Android 8.0 Oreo
New earphones recently. Since I use them, my music pauses and jumps constantly.
Includes Spotify, YouTube, local media files, literally any sound that my phone emits for extended periods.
Occurs only with new wired earphones. I had a replacement game because I thought it was the tiny but new pair. Others are fine, so probably not a broken grip.
I think it has something to do with the paused phone when it detects an audio input / output. I think I try to initiate voice control and I am not.
When this was starting to happen, Google Assistant had me constantly warned of the sound "if you are safe, press the notification to activate the helmet wizard". So frustrating that I just disable the entire Google application. Stop receiving this notification, but still pause.
