I just had the exact same issue, it was driving me to distraction. The music on Pandora would pause, I would clearly hear the sound of a telephone dial tone, then the music would start playing again.

After exiting various apps and closing browser windows, I finally realized it was my headphones! I was using Cowin E7 Noise Cancelling Headphones, and apparently the "low battery" alert is a telephone dial tone.

In summary: it had nothing to do with Pandora, it was my headphones.

@ttravismc Could you tell me a bit more about what is happening? Are you listening to Pandora on a computer or on a device?

  1. If you are on a computer, are you listening from:
    • A Mac or Windows computer?
  2. If you are on a device, what is the make and model (and carrier, if applicable)?
  3. Is there an error message? If so, what does it say?
  4. Can you provide me with a screenshot of what you're seeing?

Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝
