Question about Sirius STILETTO 100 MP3 Player
Have to jiggle headset to get both speakers but it doesnt stay and goes back to one ear. i have tried various headsets and this problem continues.
I have owned several "stilleto" models, including the S100, S200, and the S50. I bought the protection plan through Circuit City (now useless), because I went through 3 of these units in as many months.
I am sorry to say but you are out of luck. The solder that binds your headphone jack to the circuit board has been compromised and the unit is an injection molded unit that makes it very difficult to disassemble and repair.
You may be able to find a local repair shop that still does this kind of work, and may be able to help you, but otherwise you have an expensive piece of junk on your hands. I have had heard of several reports of people contacting Sirius directly and complaining, and potentially getting a deal on a new unit, or even a free unit, due to a malfunctioning unit.
Your only other solution is to some how plug the headset in, and pull the cord in a direction that allows for both headsets to function. Once in the is position, keep it there by taping (or elastic banding) down the cord so the jack keeps pressure in that position.

For the last year, I have had to pull the cord in a direction that allows for both headsets to function and as of today, now only one headphone works. I was told by Sirius to take my radio to Best Buy or Radio Shack to be repaired. I am going to try using the antenna headphones, so to bybass my broken headphone jack.

I had the same problem with my SL100/headphones...they are terrible. I purchased the newer, more comfortable Stilleto2 headphones from tssradio.com. After a short time, the same thing started happening so I called and emailed Sirius. After some complaining (and threats to cancel) Sirius sent me a refurbished SL100 unit with all of the parts. The newer headphones still did not work properly, so I contacted the manufacturer (AllTec Lansing) directly. They sent me a new set and everything is working great. My advice would be to call Sirius today. Hope this helps.
