    Everything worked just fine and then suddenly my right skullcandy earbud stopped working, but it slowly cut out (as I've experienced before from overuse - I commute and use them a LOT!!!). So I bought a new pair and first thing out of the box the right earbud didn't work so I tried one more new pair and AGAIN the same problem! What's the problem?!?!

    Are you pushing the headphones all the way into the jack? Is it going in all the way? Is there something stuck in the hole? If none of that works, you'll probably have to get it repaired.

    This is a common fault with iPhone and has happened to me twice. It is an internal fault within the jack and unless you can have the jack replaced, there's not much you can do. If you're in warranty, Apple will actually replace the phone free of charge, no quibbles. No amount of headphones will make it right.

    So what causes it? Adding too much force when inserting the headphones into the phone is a certainty. Apple's sort of ''official line'' is that if you keep the phone in your pocket with the headphones in, the bending of the wires and pressure on the jack can break it. Sorry I'm not being too technical, I am telling you exactly what they tell others.

    As I said, if you're in warranty you can get an exchange. If not, take it to your local Apple store and they'll give you a quote on how much they'll repair it for. It isn't usually very costly.
