I'm pretty sure is a physical problem, not a software problem. During the days I had the problem I was out of home and didn't update anything. Hope Sony change the audio connector provider because is really bad quality.
Also I found a solution,
I sold my phone on the chinese black market. I bought a new iPhone 6S.

same problem with my Xperia Z5, headsets not reconized just right after 6.0 update....
Smart Connect uninstalled but same behaviour
The headset himself works (with soundabout), it's only the detection event that's won't works :
- hardware issue ? a pin used for detection only that should be damaged ? exactly at the same time I updated to 6.0 ? can't beliveve it. I tried to clean up the jack with no effect.
- software ? possible. but it's not smart connect, the automatic detection does not work even with soundabout. I think it should be a system issue ... I run 6.0.1, is there an update planned to fix this isssue ?
I had also an issue with my Xperia Z5 Dual. Headphones wasn't recognised by mobile after update 13 July 2016.
But I managed to solve to problem and I would like to tell how I did it.
Simply, I did Software Repair with Xperia Companion. After a success repair and phone restore from Google, my headphones works as expected in any application (e.g. Radio, AIMP, Google Music etc.) without additional software.
So I would like to recommend you to do a Software Repair with Xperia Companion to resolve issue with headphones.Be careful and patient and follow the instructions
BTW, make sure that your headphones are working with other device.

@Bonita : I tried to restart the phone with the headset plugged in, but without any effect...
@Sturman : I just installed Xperia Companion and it show me an available update (32.2.A.0.253). I'am actually running the 224.
So I will try this update prior to make a repair ...
I will put some information here ...

Other news : after a reboot (with headset plugged in) the headset is working if I plug it / unpluged it / plug it again quickly ...
It's not the way I want to use such a phone but It's better than nothing ...
