Apple tracking problem with Monster headphones?

Apple is currently investigating a rash of problems related to a number of remote + mic headphones made by Monster that are exhibiting “erratic behavior.” Citing an internal Apple source and screen shots of what is supposedly an Apple internal support document, the Boy Genius Report states that the problems affect the iPod, iPhone, and iPad users, and include random, non-intentional track control changes, such as pausing, skipping, and playback initiation. According to the Apple document, the troublesome Monster headphones “do not meet Apple’s technical specifications,” and “use conductive flanges, which can result in electrical shorts that cause an iPod or iPhone to pause and play erratically.” Listed in the document as offending models are the Jamz, Lil Jamz, Turbine Basic and Pro, and Heartbeats product lines.
