    So, I have Skull Candy smoking buds and they are the smokin' buds. I am currently living in Asia so where I am right now it is fairly hard to get new headphones without paying over $100
    (believe it...not everything in Asia is cheap :))

    For some reason one side of my headphones wont work unless I push on the jack. The other side still has good sound though.

    Any solutions? I never wrap them around my ipod cause I broke a pair doing that and I take care of them cause they are the fairly rare rasta color. LEt me know :)

    The jack is broke. Not much you can do other than get new phones. Preferably not skullcandy.

    Do not ever buy skull candy headphones again. I have had the exact same problem with 2 pairs of the skullcandy ink'd ones, get some headphones where the cord merges before the jack. If you still have your receipt, take them back to the store, they should give you a refund.

    Exact same problem here, with the white skullcandy ink'd.

    The right side went first, (and as mentioned above) would work if i pushed on the jack. Now the left side has also gone :mad:

    Bought them in Jan. SKULL CANDY......NEVER AGAIN

    Not really. Check out Meelectronics (www.meelec.com) for cheap phones with better than average sound. (for the price)

    Try another pair of earphones/headphones to see if it's the headphone jack in your iPod or the headphone jack on your earphones.

    doesn't skullcandy lifetime warranty cover this?

    in any case, stay away from them in the future.
