Same issue on PC, the "Focus" station (is this a new station?) seems to have the same problem.

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All content and patches to date thru Nifty Knitting SP
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have Sim do any activity and select earbuds (Fitness Pack). Choose to listen to METAL or Focus via earbuds. Sim will drop any action and reset.
What happens when the bug occurs? Only when using Earbuds from Fitness Pack to listen to music stations Metal or Focus from Nifty Knitting SP
What do you expect to see? Sim not to reset when trying to listen to music stations that were added with Nifty Knitting.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.

It is so nice to use the earbuds to keep my Sim happy while doing tasks.
This means they do not need to be near a stereo.

Edit to add:
Tested on different Sims in both old (pre Nifty Knitting) and new saves.

@EuphorialQueen That looks like the same LE reported here in the German forum: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Die-Sims-4/Seit-Strick-mit-Schick/m-p/9356862

Does it work for stereo for you (user used stereo not earbuds) ?

Stereo is fine. The channels play correctly and the associated actions are available.
Like "BRUTALLY DANCE" to Metal music which is great fun.
