Question about Bose in-ear headphones - Black with black/white cord

1 Answer

When I plug my headphones into my iPod, there is no sound, unless I jiggle the cord around and do not plug them all the way in. They worked fine at the beginning, but do not work now.

I'm not certain it's not the I-Pod socket or the headphone jack that is playing up? If you can get another pair of headphones (a friends etc) and put them in the socket of the I-Pod, to test it that should clear it up. For if they don't work you know it's the I-Pod socket that's faulty.
If it's the Bose jack that's gone, you better see my tip on dodgy cable/plugs on headphones. You should be able to replace it with the 3.5mm type shown, but I think you can get the thinner type jacks.

Ipod classic has no sound


Damaged hardware is responsible for the most obvious iPod sound problems. In such cases, Apple may be able to help you fix the problem, depending on the status of your warranty. All iPods have a one-year warranty according to Apple's website. Software problems can also affect your audio. For example, downloading a non-certified Apple application can stop your sound from working correctly. Returning your iPod to its original factory settings fixes many of these software glitches.

Plug in a different set of headphones and test the sound. If that set works, your old headphones were the cause of your audio problems. If your iPod still doesn't work, proceed. Open iTunes. Plug the iPod into your computer with a USB cord. Click on your iPod on the left-hand menu. The iPod will be listed under the name you assigned it when you first set it up. Click the "Restore" button on the menu. Leave the iPod alone while it restores. It may take several minutes. Test the sound once the restore is complete. The iPod syncs after restoration. Once the sync is complete, the process is over. Contact the Apple Technical Support line at 1-800-275-2273 if your audio still doesn't work. Have your iPod with you. Hope it helps

My Skullcandy Hesh headphones have messed up sound with my ipod


I would say that if they work fine with other devices then your input jack on your ipod is bad. First I would plug other headphones into your Ipod and see if the problem persists. If not the case then I would plug in your headphones into a known working device and wiggle the wire at the connection point to see if you can duplicate the problem. If this does happen then you need to replace the connector (1/8th inch stereo male plug) on your headphones.

If I jiggle the cord in the stereo outliet, the sound switches from left to right earpiece and has to be just right in the outlet to get both earpieces working at the same time.


If you plug the headphones into another device do they stay on solid?
The problem can be the cord/plug (headphones) or the socket which your plugging into. Socket might need re-soldered or replaced.

MY IPOD IS CONECTED TO A GRIFFIN AUDIO AUX CABLE IN MY CAR, IT WAS WORKING THRU BOTH SPEAKERS AT UNTIL YESTERDAY WHEN I REALIZED IT WAS ONLY COMING OUT OF ONE SPEAKER. WHEN I MOVE THE IPOD IN CERTAIN...


It's one of 3 things.  Either you have a bad aux cable, the cable isn't pushed in all the way into the ipod/stereo, or you have a bad connection on the ipod itself.
To test theory #3, plug in some headphones and wiggle the cord around... good?
To test theory #2, give a good push on the ipod.  sometimes it appears to be seated all the way but isn't.
To test theory #1, well.... you just need to buy a new cord and give it a go.  
It would be very hard to believe that it's your vehicle causing the problem.  Ipods get a lot of use/abuse out of them with tension on the headphones.  This can cause internal loose headphone connections on the ipod itself.  Hopefully it's just not seated properly or your cord gave out on you.  Ipods aren't cheap.
Good Luck

NO sound comes out of the headphone jack or the bottom plug in


All you need is a new headphone jack as yours may be messed up, or it may need to be checked as the cord may have came loose and just needs to be reconnected. They are pretty cheap to replace so it will not cost alot to fix.

Bad connection


It sounds like you have two problems. One is your ipod earphone plug ( phono plug ) needs replacing, and # two is your headphone plug needs replacing.
