Why Do My Headphones Keep Triggering Voice Control on My iPhone?

If your headphones trigger Voice Control or Siri on your device by accident, it is more than likely a hardware problem. Apple warns that a loose or poor connection between your iPhone and your headset may be causing Voice Control or Siri to activate unexpectedly.

While Apple recommends that you replace the headphones, you may have other options, including disabling Voice Control. Also, make sure that your connector is inserted fully into your device.
