For the last few days when I plug in my EarPods to my iPhone, after about a minute or so music will start playing and stopping, this is without me touching the controls or using the iPhone.

This happens more often when I am walking or running. It also occurs when I plug in the EarPods with my MacBook Pro and a song will suddenly play in iTunes.

When I plug in my other headphones to my iPhone or MacBook they work perfectly, so it seems problem is with this specific EarPod set.

Does anyone have any info on how I can fix this?
