Why aren’t my MINI BOOM controls working correctly when I use a 3.5mm auxiliary cable?

MINI BOOM controls not working with device connected by 3.5mm auxiliary cable

The MINI BOOM was designed to be used with a 3-pole (non-microphone or inline remote cable) auxiliary connector. You might experience unexpected behavior with controls if you use a 4-pole (with inline microphone and/or inline remote) auxiliary cable.

Only use a 3-pole cable with your MINI BOOM.
