View Full Version : Audio jack funny noise when turning headphones?

I buy cheapy china-made 3.5mm audio jacks for my tech like ipod touch and droid x. However, my headphones are not a cheapy product from china. However, I've had this problem many times with all these products.

Basically, when I tap the headphones by the jack in the phone, the audio can quiet or shut off one channel, or turn off my music because the phone thinks I unplugged my headphones. Not only does bumping do it, but turning the jack in the phone does it as well, and it sometimes also the only solution.

This has happened with headphones and just 3.5mm cables in both my ipod touch and my droid x. What's the deal?
