MDR-1000x play/pause gestures don't work


I have tried contacting Sony Support through chat multiple times, and they have either failed to answer or have simple disconnected the chat.  Way to go, Sony.


I have the Sony MDR-1000x headphones.


They have gestures available on the headphones in bluetooth mode:


Unfortunately, the play/pause and search gestures do not work on my headphones (and have never worked).  This is with Windows 10 (as well as with Android + Ubuntu systems).  The volume gestures and next/prev gestures work, and I get a notification beep when I do the play/pause double-tap, but it does not toggle the music playing.   *Sometimes* when I first connect bluetooth I am able to *start* music with the double-tap, but that's the only time it works, and only sometimes.

Hi, Daveola


Welcome to Sony Community! 


Your computer's and other devices' Bluetooth profile should have AVRCP feature. Kindly check the features and capability of your units. If they have this feature, make sure to update or reinstall the Bluetooth driver.

It obviously must since prev/next gestures are working.
