I can get sound on both sides of my headphones, but only one side on earbuds, I've tried 5 different sets of earbuds, all with the same result..anyone have any info on this problem? Thanks

Maybe this is a silly question.....But, here goes.... Are you sure that your headphones are stereo? And not mono? That could explain it. Or: Are you using any adaptors? If the headphones, and the ear buds all use the same male end to plug into the computer, and only the headphoes give you sound on both sides...... I would compare the end on the headphones to the ends on the ear buds and make sure they are identical in every way. One more possibility......Next time you lug in your earbuds, make sure they are pushed in all the way. I sometimes have that issue, and have to put a little force on the plug to make sure it's in all the way. good luck

Yes, My headphones are stereo, I checked the plugs, they look the same..I'll keep playing with them to see if I can get them to work..If not, I have a nice 32oz. (1lb) hammer that will fix them. :lol: .thanks for the reply
