When I listen to headphones only one side works. It seems to be a problem with my phone, as it does the same thing with more than one pair of headphones. Has anyone else had this happen? Would this be covered under apple care?

are you making sure it is fully in the headphone spot and not sticking out a bit due to your cover? the silver thing should actually snap into the headphone jack.


best,

Apple is known to have horrible headphones. I never open mine up. I run to Target and get a set of Skull Candy headphones.

So, you may want to try another set. If another set works, then call Apple and see what they say.

This happens with my brand-new SkullCandy headphones--the sound is always cutting in and out. I have a set of Sony earbuds that work fine, and they actually fit my ears a lot better too.

I have two pair of headphones that came with apple products and the same thing happens with each. I do have it in all the way...actually, if I can pull it out slightly I can sometimes get both ears to work but then it is too far out and the whole thing turns off.
