Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
I have an Ipod and have bought 2 Bose headphones. Both have had the left earphone go out. How do I fix this? I have had cheaper headphones have the left earphone go out as well.
Have you checked the headphones with another player to ensure that it is the headphones and not the iPod's headphone jack? If not I would greatly recommend doing so. If it is headphone jack on the iPod, this can be replaced rather simply. You can go to:
to view the price of the part and decide if it is worth repairing to you.

It sounds like the headphone jack is either loose or broken. I had this happen about two weeks ago. I bought a replacement off ebay for about 3 dollars, saving about 50 by doing it myself. I would highly suggest just going to these sites; http://www.ipodhowtovideo.com/video/videoheadphonereplacement.html
to show you how to do it yourself. I did and it was very simple if you just pay close attention to what you're doing. Just make sure you buy the right type of jack. The hardest part was opening the ipod!
However, if you're sure that it's not the jack, and it's just the headphones, all I can tell you is to NOT buy the expensive headphones unless you're basically never going to use them. Earphones are so incredibly fragile and if you bend them just enough, they will stop working. So, I just go to the local Walmart and buy earphones that are 99 cents. They aren't the best, but this way, at least when they stop working, it won't be such a drag. Hope this helps!
