Hi.
I'm running Windows 10 on my ASUS K501UX laptop. Recently, I've been noticing that my earbud audio is malfunctioning. My laptop has one single multi-purpose 3.5mm audio jack that I split with the UGREEN Headset Adapter (https://www.amazon.ca/UGREEN-Splitter-Headphone-Separate-Microphone/dp/B073ZCWDZY/ref=pd_sbs_23_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B073ZCWDZY&pd_rd_r=404b9891-82ce-11e8-9453-e5e28017db9d&pd_rd_w=E3zWI&pd_rd_wg=VPkmA&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_m=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&pf_rd_p=3743643050606576516&pf_rd_r=DCVZ98WPCSCKKWX72RA7&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&psc=1&refRID=DCVZ98WPCSCKKWX72RA7). I'm using some old 3.5mm jack Apple EarPods I found in a drawer, and from what my dad tells me, they are around 3 years old. The earbuds' right bud does not play audio unless I fiddle with the jack and put it in a specific position (Not fully plugged in, but close). This happens with plugging into both the adapter, as well as my PC's audio jack. This does not happen when I plugged into my friend's Windows 10 computer, nor my LG G6 smartphone. I have also read reviews about how EarPods (At least the fairly new ones) break easily. Wondering if anybody can shed light on this issue.

Thanks
