HTC One X ignoring wired headset behavior

Post by cryptocarnivore on Wed Aug 14, 2013 6:16 am

I'm currently trying out your app to fix an issue with my HTC One X (4.1.1). The phone has problems recognizing wired headphones.

The app works fine routing the audio to the headphones even if the system thinks there isn't one connected (no headphone icon). If however I jiggle the connector a bit, the system recognizes the headphones, the icon appears and almost immediately loses connection again and pauses the audio (on all players I've tested). If I then press play all is fine, until the system suddenly starts recognizing the headphones again.

I would deduce that the 'wired headset behavior' setting, which is unchecked, is being ignored.

If you have any suggestions towards fixing this problem I'd be much obliged.

What is happening is other apps(like media players) can still detect the headset being plugged in/out before SoundAbout and will pause the music so it does't blast through the phone speakers.

Thanks for the reply. I'm guessing there's way to prevent these apps from doing so?

Only if they have built in a setting to do so. I have settings in the "Wired Headset behavior" setting to try and pause/play any media player that adheres to the Android media player interface. You can try those settings and see if they help.

It seems there aren't any players that have or respect a plug in/out behavior setting. Makes sense I guess, only people with broken phones would want to override the pause on disconnect.

In any case, thanks a lot for the feedback! I'll continue using SoundAbout for when the phone's stationary.
