    Has anyone had issues with the middle button not working on the Quadbeats 2 earphones? or on any 3 button headset/earphones? When I press the middle button (which is supposed to be the play/pause button), it brings up an option to open the phone dialer. It's pretty annoying that play/pause doesn't work.

    It didn't work when I had Android 4.2.2 and still doesn't work after upgrading to 4.4.2. I can't imagine LG would design a pair of earphones that wouldn't work properly with their own flagship phone.

    I've tested it out on the stock music app and google play app; it always brings up the phone dialer option.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You may want to clean the headphone port. A Q-tip with some "Q" pulled off so it will fit in---with some connection cleaner, or alcohol. A bit of dirt or coffee in the port can mess up your phone in many ways.

    Having the same experience, confused why this is its behavior. Bump for a fix?

    Issue Resolved - Updated to Android Lollipop and issue is now resolved, music will play/pause and jump to next track using middle button. Only took about a year and a half for LG to fix this.
