I'm trying to listen to a podcast through Apple's headphones on my Macbook Pro (Retina, 13 Inch, mid 2014), running OS X 10.10.1, but the audio keeps cutting out.

When the audio cuts out, the following log messages appear in the Console app:

Every time it happens, the first message seems to be AirPlay became the default audio device, but I'm not currently using any airplay devices as far as I'm aware. How do I stop this from happening?

Rebooting doesn't help. Also, I'm in a library, so I currently can't test playing audio without headphones.

    Which Apple Headphones? – Ruskes Nov 26 '14 at 18:02
  • The standard earbuds that come with an iPhone. I bought a new pair yesterday. They're from apple, not some other vendor. – bigblind Nov 26 '14 at 18:04

When I asked this question, I only had one option in the audio output devices list in my audio preferences. When I went back some time later, I noticed an option called [someone's name] - Macbook Air. I accidentally clicked it, and quickly set the setting back to my headphones. This seems to have fixed the problem.
