I have this problem with my headphones. They were working fine up until today, where the music sounds like it's coming from the background and the jack needs to be facing a certain direction and in a specific position to work normally. Anyone know what could be causing it?

  • Simply a damaged cord. You need to buy a new one.

It's more than likely the headphones instead of the phone.

  • But as far as what's wrong with the headphones themselves I'd say a short, or something.

  • Well they've served me for 3 months now which is somewhat of a record. I'll just buy new ones. Commented Dec 12, 2016 at 18:54
