This is the exact same problem as, but that thread was closed with no link to a solution, so I was forced to create a new discussion to +1 it.
Headphone model is Sennheiser Momentum 2 AEBT

    Hello Hamish,
    Thanks for using our app!
    Unfortunately, we can't guarantee its work with every device... What we can guarantee is its stable work with Apple's headphones button. Everything other than that, should be tested individually, to reproduce such behavior and fix.
    We will be able to fix that as soon as we have such device here.
    Thank You for using our app. Have a nice day!

    I have a set of Bowers & Wilkins P7 wireless headphones with similar issue, I can turn up and down the volume but I can't control the music being played. If I click the play button (which doubles for pausing/forward/rewind) iTunes was started but it seems to have stopped doing that now. Still, it seems silly you guys have the leading alternative to iTunes and can't get this work... Hope you will fix this soon, very annoying...thanks Aad

    Almost the same: I'm on Bowers & Wilkins P5 wireless headphones.
    No response on headphone's play button.
    Agree to Aad's post above totally: excellent player, excellent headphones - disappointing control of one to the other.

    And one more complain from the owner of Sennheiser PXC 550: remote control does not work. Still hoping for a fix in the nearest future. Even Google Play Music Desktop Player works well, but not VOX.
