I have this weird problem where all sounds while headphones are plugged in my phone is stuck in the background, but without the headphones the sound works fine. I am utterly clueless on how to fix this so any help is appreciated.

  • The jack is as clean as it can be, not even a single speck of dirt or lint in it. The sound is stuck in the background as in the sound is muffled but still hearable like it's coming from a distance. Commented Mar 19, 2017 at 11:11
  • Haven't been around to be able to answer, but no that didn't help. No matter how loud the audio is it's still muffled. Commented Mar 25, 2017 at 11:32
  • Yeah turns out the headphones were only made to be used on a pc or laptop. Got new ones for phones specifically and it works. Commented Mar 25, 2017 at 19:40

Turns out headphones were made for desktop use only. The darn manual had not mentioned this at all.
