About a week ago the left ear bud stopped working on the ear buds that came with my iPhone. I honestly didn't expect them to last that long so it wasn't a huge deal. I still use them every day as they have the built in mic and I can still hear the calls on the right ear bud. Yesterday I started getting odd behavior whenever I plugged in the ear buds. Such as music starting to play as soon as they are plugged in, although when looking at the screen you see the pause/play button going back and forth as if someone is pressing it rapidly. Additionally, once this stops happening Siri somehow gets activated, but eventually she times out and goes away. The last straw was last evening when in the middle of a FaceTime call I plugged in the ear buds and the call abruptly ended and music started playing. Today I did a full restore and no such luck as the issue remains. I have tried using my other set of non-apple ear buds and the issue does not occur, so this leads me to believe that the issue resides with the ear buds. Is this something I need to take into the Apple Store? Would they even replace only the ear buds? Or should I just chuck the buds and forget about them? Thoughts?
