Unhappy Bose In-Ear Headphones and 8320?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, I finally got my 4GB Micro SD card and have been copying music over to it. I finally get to the point to listen to some music, plug in my Bose In-Ear headphones and went through the play list, chose what song I wanted to hear and guess, what....I only hear it outta the left headphone!! :(

I have tried MANY MANY MANY different songs and they are all the same, only hear outta the left side...Am I missing something? Anyone have this problem with their 8320? I havent been able to try other headphones yet, but I want my Bose ones to work with my 8320!!

Help!!

Thanks,
Randy

is the jack in the 8320 a standard 1/8" stereo jack(female)?

if it is, sounds like a loose connection.... (if the headphones work properly in another device)

Default The headphones work...

The headphones work in my iPod and everything else I plug em into - come on guys, give me more credit than that.

The headphone jack on the Curve (8300 series) is a real 3.5mm headphone jack (from what I have read everywhere) - the headphone jack fits in perfectly, not loose, not tight...

It's has something to do with the pin connectors inside the jack in the 8320. I have the same problem with my Ultimate Ears Super.fi's. I posted about this same thing when the 8300 first came out. Cheap headphones work fine but not my nice ones. The way I get around it is to plug a headphone extension cord into the 8320 first, then plug your headphones into the extension cord. Works for me every time.

Yup, have a friend with UEs and it does not quite fit correctly. However, my etymotic ER-4Ps work just fine. Also when using my ER-4S to ER-4P converter, it works fine with his UE in ears.

I think if you just had a small pigtail they would work fine, but it looked as if the larger 90 degree plug keeps it from making good contact.

Try and use the headphones that come with the BB8320....to see if it is your connection....or your conversion of the Mp3's
Gotta love the process of elimination!

Doesn't the headphone connection on the BB have 4 seperate pins and most standard stereo headphones have 3? Count the stock headphone connection male plug that comes with your 8300 and then count the ones on regular headphones... Not positive (and too lazy to go out to my car and check right now) but I think I'm right.

Do you have the older ones with the large plug or the newer (post iphone) headphones with the slim plug?
