Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Here's the problem, and I've been experiencing it for a long time. I have a pair of earbud headphones, I'll use them, and after a while, say 2-3 weeks, I'll only get sound out of one ear, and if i jiggle the jack a little bit it works, but only if I'm frozen in that position. I figured it was just a faulty pair of phones, but I bought several pairs and noticed the same thing, I mainly use headphones for my iPod. Also when I noticed the problem, I tried the headphones on different mediums, still the same thing. I don't think it could be my iPod since the headphones don't work on anything else. But I have a thought, when I'm done listening to my iPod, I turn it off, and vertically wrap the headphones around it, therefore pulling on, applying tension to the jack, could this be the source of my problem?
I would really appreciate some help because I don't want to have to keep buying headphones every two weeks!
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!
