    I tried multiple pairs of headphones, a soft reset, and a factory reset, and still no luck. Do you think it could be a physical problem?

Is there a way to connect the Boston BA745 speakers to an Ipod. I have tried but do not get any sound.


The sound-output levels from the iPod are designed for "ear-bud" speakers, i.e., very low levels.
And, your iPod is under 1 Kg in weight.

In contrast, your speakers require an amplifier to push 10 to 30 watts to the speakers.
And, such an amplifier is over 10 Kg in weight, due to the circuitry required to do the amplification.

So, the "short" answer is NO.

The "long" answer is to use a cable to connect the audio-out from the iPod to an audio-in port on a stand-alone amplifier, and use speaker-wire to connect the amplifier to your speakers.

One earbud stopped working


what happens is inside the cord where you have your ear phones connecting to your ipod, there is a thin wire that can easily brake. it happens if u for example, rap your ear phones around your ipod. if your rap the chords to tight, the wire can break. it can even brake when you move the cord too much. such as spinning it, shaking it and such.
the wire that breaks connects to one side or both sides of your earphones, which produces the sound. if you can hear only on one side, the cord is damaged and cant be fixed.

i would go and buy new ear phones
i perfer skullcandy in-ear earphones because the wire is secrurly wrapped, and doesnt brake easily such as other producers. the skullcandy ear phones are in my mind are much better then other earphones. you actually feel like your in the room or at a live show.

Losing sound in my Shure ear buds, they are one year old.


the wire breaks after a while in ear buds ,and head phones due to the constant flexing,and moving.they probably need to be remade.by cutting out the bad part of the wire(usually close to the fitting)You can usually wiggle the wire and find where the breaks are that way.it can be a real pain re soldering ear buds.also check the plug end by wiggling the wire there.

Only the left ear bud has sound


Hey NoRightSound,

If your earbud headphones function normally with other devices, there are a number of reasons why this problem may be occurring, including faulty connections within the iPod itself or a potentially defective headphone jack. While both of these issues can typically be resolved fairly easily, I would first suggest contacting your local Apple-authorized service center for a complete diagnostic to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem.

Remember that if your iPod is still under the original manufacturer's warranty, you can always call Apple directly for technical support over the phone in addition to working with a technician in your area.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

More than likely the ear bud or the wiring is damaged. Try set from a friend that you know works for confirmation.
