Let the user of Spotify choose to disable changing songs with the microphone if that is disturbing

I bought a Koss Porta Pro 2.0 headset with a mic to use with the international version of Samsung Galaxy SIII LTE (a.k.a i9305).
I use Cyanogenmod 10.1.3 as ROM and it's stable.
Playing music on Spotify is no problem, but I've noticed an irritating behavior of the microphone on the cord.

 

Lets assume that I play a song that I like & don't feel like switching to another song at the moment.

If the microphone touches my cheek Spotify pauses the song.

I have looked in every sound-related setting in my phone & there's no way to control that behavior, even with the Headset Button Controller-app from Google Play.

The mic also seems to trigger Google Voice search.

Heya!

You're saying that by simply touching your cheek with the microphone of your headset, a song pauses?

I'm kinda puzzled why on earth that would happen in the first place - could you maybe explain a bit more what's going on and what Spotify should do about that obstinate mic of yours? 😉

Yes it does.

It seems like Spotify is set to automatically start if the mic is touched somehow.

I should be able to set Spotify to only open when I want to use it and to NOT use the mic to either pause or play or change to another song.
