    Post Headphone button has slow response time

    So I've recently transferred from iPhone to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and one of the first things that I noticed was the fact that whenever I press the button on my headphones to either change tracks or just pause the song, the time taken for it to do so is at least 5 seconds, once it took 20 seconds just to pause! I've been using spotify to listen to my music by the way.
    Please help because this is really annoying me, especially since I live in a cold area and don't like to get my phone out or take my gloves off.

    Welcome to Android Central! A bunch of these headphones/earphones with remote controls that are specifically designed for iPhones don't always work well with Android. iPhones use a slightly different headphone jack standard. I see a lot of complaints about various Beats headphones not working well with Android devices. If your headphones were designed for iPhones, then you should look for a new pair that specifically states Android compatibility.

    The headphones I use came with the phone, they are Samsung headphones.

    How does it work on other music apps, especially the Samsung one or Google Play Music? Maybe it's a problem with Spotify.

    It has the same problem with any app I try, including the main music one.
    However it sometimes work normally whilst at other times there's a major delay

    Have you tried cleaning the headphone jack? Some debris could potentially be interfering with the contacts. Try rooting around with a damp toothpick, or cleaning the contacts with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol, or blowing it out with a can of compressed air.
