Sound comes out of only one headphone

Its not the headphones as I've tried other pairs and they are all the same - do you think I have a faulty connection somewhere and would it be easy to fix? Thanks

I have bought several pairs of headphones for my gogear but they all sound like there is a problem with the connection only getting sound through one ear sometimes

The headphone socket in the GoGear is faulty. If you can hear sounds from both ear pieces when you wriggle the headphone plug in the GoGear, then the headphone socket in the GoGear is faulty. This fault can be easily fixed by removing the circuit board in the GoGear and resoldering the headphone socket to the circuit. You need a very fine tipped temperature soldering iron to do this job.

On deaf ear

sounds like headphone jack is either dirty or loose in the unit or a possible blown fuse.

if still under warrenty I would get it serviced if not then if you feel comfortable opening it up and looking around the inside of the unit around the sounds output jack then you can try that and see if you can find any blown or burnt problems around there loose connections.

I can only get sound out of one ear. Sometimes, if I move the chord around, I can get sound our of both ears. It comes and goes.

I have had this problem several times. It can be due to a number of things
Firstly, try the MP3 player with a different set of headphones, if both ears work, then the headphones are the problem. Check the adaptor and/or cabling for any damage or defects. If the internal cabling is damaged, you will need to go and buy a new pair.
If the problem is the player itself, try checking the headphone port for dust or any other artefacts blocking the way. This can cause he connection to fail and therefore lose sound.
On a side note, if you love listening to music, i would suggest a high quality set of headphones. Sennheiser (my personal favourites) and Shure are both a VERY good brand to go for. You do pay a bit more, but sound quality and build quality are faultless.

The music cuts in and out...I have already changed the headphones

as i understand what you are saying is the fact that you wiggle your headphone connection so that the sound will come on there are a few answers to this problem
  1. your headphone jack in your mp3 could be the problem and to solve that you could
  • one go to a tech specialist and have them fix it
  • two - you could put a peice of aluminum foil in the slot on the subjugated side and slide your headphone into the slot wile holding onto part of the aluinum foil
2. the headphones could be the problem and you will need to get a new pair of headphones ]

hope this helps you have a nice day

Pairing probs with insignia bluetooth wireless headphns to iphone, device is showing up on iphone, but no sound

have your put a new battery in your headphones.
they show 10 hours of continuous play so the battery may be charged enough to pair but not to power the headphones.
Change the batteries and try it.

Ipod (30 G) earbud jack only plays out of one ear

Does this still happen with a different pair of headphones? If not, get another pair. If the same behaviour with any headphones you will need to contact Apple if still in warranty to get it repaired.

My bet is with the headphones not the IPOD.

Good Luck

Only Getting Sound Out Of One Ear In Headphones

go on eBay and buy a new audio jack.

I had the same issue. Gradually it became worse and worse (on the sound cutting out more frequently out of one ear or being really silent at best) and I replaced the audio jack by buying a new one on eBay. Or if you are not the do-it-your-selfer and you got money, bring it to an iPod store that preforms repairs. When you order it on ebay, if it is really cheap, it usually ships from China or something and it might take a couple weeks. But saves you some bucks!

NO sound??

Make sure the volume is turned up sufficiently. If it is, then get it exchanged if still in warranty.

Headphones not playing in iPod

This is either cause by a damaged headphone socket in the iPod or a loose connection. The only way to solve it will involve opening the iPod case and inspecting the daughter board that the headphone socket is on.
