    This may sound a little weird but I am having a stupid problem with headphones. If I have it plugged in all the way it doesn't work right. It sounds weird and everything but when I do sound test things it comes out perfectly. Right now the only way to fix it seems to be to not plug it in all the way.

    The other headphones I have work when they are plugged all the way in so I know its not the computer. I really can't seem to figure this out.

    Those little 3.5 mm stereo input jacks are iffy. One good pull/leverage and the wires inside come shaky. I've got the same with a big headphone set for my stereo (6.3 mm). Plug in all the way and I only get the right channel, plug in not far enough and I get a buzz, somewhere half way they work. Annoying but I'm not buying new ones right now but rather work at hand-ear coordination.:)
