[NEEDS INPUT] [FSP] Earbuds caused Sims to all listen to music

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.48.94.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have Sim in multi-Sim household listen to music whilst wearing earbuds.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims in household who also have earbuds start listening to music from the first Sims earbuds, even if they were on a different floor. Afterwards, whenever one Sim goes to listen to music (whether it be from earbuds or music player) all other Sims in the household will listen to it to.
What do you expect to see? Only Sims directed to listen to music should be listening to music.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

So I had my child Sim listen to music from her earbuds whilst drawing. Went to go see what her mother was doing, and her mother was listening to music from her daughter's earbuds (Daughter's are pink, mother's are white). Turned it off for both of them and afterwards, the mother still had earbuds in and the musical notes around her head.

 

Tried to remedy it by having the mother turning the earbuds off and on again. It worked... kind of. The issue switched to the daughter and woke her up. She then had the musical notes around her head and earbuds in. When they're not on.

 

Now if I tell one of them to go listen to music, the other will too. I can cancel the action on the one I didn't direct, but it's just a bit irritating.

Is your game all updated to the newest version (as you put don't know)

 

Here's instructions how to find it: https://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2018/07/how-to-find-your-game-version-number/

 

Usually if origin tells you, your game is all updated, then it is but for the off-chance that it's not, it would be good if you could doublecheck.
