    Hey everybody,

    I remember pressing and holding the Earbuds' center remote button until the Siri sound came up and then, while STILL holding down the button, talking to Siri.

    Am I right about that? Because somehow, that doesn't seem to work anymore.

    Now it's: Press&hold center, wait till sound, then let go of the button, then talk. Otherwise it no longer works for me. Siri won't hear a thing until I let go of the button.

    Has it always been like this and I just think to remember keeping the button pressed down? All the articles I just read indicate "keep pressed down".

    How does it work with your iPhone/Earbud?

    Can't recall if it worked like that before unfortunately as I always let go of the button before talking. You can do that with the home button, but it doesn't seem like you can with the headphones (at least not for a little while).
