    Hi,
    in contrast to my former Windows Phones (Lumia 820, Lumia 830)
    I am missing an important function with my new Lumia 950.
    I am using earphones that come with Samsung mobile phones.
    With the older phones I could skip a track by double-click on the pause button
    on the headphone.
    Unfortunately this does not work anymore. I can only pause the title.

    Does someone have a solution to this.

    Michael

    The older Lumias used a different wiring for the buttons compared to the newer Lumias (if I remember correctly). Generally, you'll need to use headphones that were designed for the specific phone in order to guarantee that all buttons will work (almost all phones have different ways of detecting button presses). You can also modify your headphones to work, but this requires re-soldering either the connector or the buttons/mic.

    There's no common standard for headphone mics/buttons, unfortunately. It would be so much more convenient if they all followed one standard, but companies (particularly Apple) insist on using their own system so that they can license and upcharge headphones.

    That's pretty disappointing.
    Which headset will work then?

    Regards,
