    My phone, out of nowhere, stopped recognizing my Sony headphones after around three weeks of normal use. Every time I plugged them the usual "waves" icon doesn't appear and music starts playing from the speaker.
    I know my headphones are fine as I've plugged them on a Samsung phone they're started working just fine, the same oea for those phone's earphones on my Lumia.
    I should add that in in the Insider Preview Program in the Slow Ring, but the problem appeared before the recent update and continued after that.

    It could be a hardware problem. Maybe your headphones port broke somehow.
    If it only became desoldered, it should be pretty easy to fix though.

    It works on other devices right ? So definitely the problem isn't with your headphones. Do you have the gadgets app installed ? Of not install out from the store or update it. And then open the app and plug in your headphones 🎧. It might just do the trick!

    maybe the issue is with the headphone jack, try any other headphone and check if those work.

    In the description I've pointed out that some random Samsung earphones works just fine, it's just the Sony headphones that aren't recognized by my phone
    Installing and reinstalling Gadgets didn't worked out
    At night, I tried the very extreme method of hard resetting the phone... No results
    If, somehow, it's a hardware problem, how could I found out and/or fix?
