Tired of your phone randomly skipping songs because it thinks your headphones are controlling the music? This simple widget allows you to block and intercept unwanted headphone control signals which seem to accidentally occur from time to time.

It does not (and will not in the foreseeable future) support ICS+. For reasons why, see github project: https://github.com/dlew/android-headset-blocker

Recently changed in this version

Removed app from ICS+ listings, so that people don't think it will work.

    Solved a big problem for me: it disabled the mic on my headset which was activating voice dialer constantly - Avoided a lengthy and risky root procedure. But my earphones work perfectly now after two weeks of noise and constant and unwanted app launches. Very VERY smart app. Thanks a bunch.

    This app stopped my phone from randomly opening voice commands and calling people when I was listening to music. Also saved me 150+ dollars because I was about to toss my phone in the sewer due to said issue.

    Does exactly what it's supposed to do, hassle-free. Very useful to have.

    Over a week has gone by and no problems with my phone. (Used to happen multiple times a day.). Update, now it has been 6 months pauses audio sometimes, (maby once a week) but no midnight calls to my boss or mom.

    It was annoying to have voice commands pop up and rupture my eardrums, this fixes it .

    Blocks signals, but seems to turn on the screen and keep it on indefinitely instead. Phone keeps overheating in my pocket.
