    Can anyone get the headset button to do anything apart from prompting the "Smart" Connect app to ask if you want to do nothing, open Evernote or Track ID.

    This is infuriating, what use are Evernote or Track ID when I'm cycling and want to skip tracks, answer calls etc.

    If you click do nothing, it will then stop the button from working with anything. 3rd Party apps don't respond either.

    Disabling Smart Connect doesn't work, nor does installing the Smart Key app.

    Tried another headset, that doesn't work either. Nor does using another music app (currently using Deezer, but the walkman app won't respond either).

    Any ideas? I'm toying with giving Sony a call in the morning.

    Rob Wilson did a video for this problem albeit on the Galaxy S4.
    In the end in order to turn off individual components he recommended you use the Nova Launcher.
    If you look at the video here and pay attention towards the end of the video it shows Rob using Nova.
    The beginning of the video shows the issue. However for the Z1 it would not be the same file (page buddy).
