I have installed macOS Sierra. I often work on my Mac while on the go, and then I play music using iTunes over my EarPods connected via the mini-Jack plug.
The button allows me to pause the music, but now in Sierra, every time I press it, I am asked whether I want to allow Siri. Refusing will simply bring the window up again when I press the button.
I don't want to use Siri on Sierra. At all. How can I prevent it from trying to activate when I press play/pause on my EarPods?
Added after reading comments: When I enable Siri, Siri doesn't activate when I press the button, unless I press it really long. But when I disable Siri entirely, it asks whether it's allowed to activate every time I press the button, even if it's just a short click.
