iPhone 7 does not work with old Apple headphones

Being a lucky owner of a new iPhone 7 in black, I was looking forward to using it this morning on my way to work. I usually walk to the station to get some time to listen to audiobooks.

For a long time, I have been using my Apple headphones that came with the purchase of my iPhone 4. They are the flat ones. They just stick better in my ear. I don’t feel them, whereas I feel the new ones. They are simply a bit too big for my tiny ears.

Anyway, I used the great connector that comes with the iPhone 7 and connects Lightning cable and headphone jack. I had a good sound quality and was happy to go. On my way, I sometimes have to stop the audio as there is so much traffic noise around me that I don’t hear anything anymore. I usually use the remote that is integrated in the cable. I pressed the middle “button” but nothing happened. I tried it again… and again, but nothing. Then, I tried the volume. Nothing happened. The remote did not work. First, I thought, it might have been the connector and tried it with my old iPhone 5s. But there, it worked. So, it is the old headphones in general that don’t transmit the information from the remote to the new iPhone 7. What a bummer!
