So, I've had this happen about three times while at the gym. I've got my iPhone in my pocket, using the iPod function with the screen locked. I'm using the stock earphones, which I usually run inside my shirt to minimize the wires bouncing around. All of a sudden, songs start to paus and unpause, skip to the next track, pause.... etc. I've tried pulling the earphones out of the connector a few times, rebooting the iPhone, and choosing different playlists, all to no avail. the only thing that seems to work is blowing on the mic/clicker, or swinging the eaphones around for a few seconds. I think the only explanation is that sweat is accumulating in the mic/clicker and causing it to short. I've got kind of longish hair and have worked up a pretty good sweat by the time this happens. Anyone else had anything like this happen. I'm thinking about adding some kind of foam "bead" onto the wire to try and stop sweat from reaching the clicker.
