At times my iPod will completely pause by itself. I'm thinking more as a sensor in the headphone jack that senses the headphone... It just seems like the connection of the headphones is being altered. I'm thinking compressed air in the hole. Though, at times it skips multiple times in a row or just completely pauses. Though doubtfully I'm able to listen to a whole song without interruptions. If I blow in the jack it stops working(tried it twice) only to work again when tried later. Audio would be playing just nothing is being heard. I doubt it's she headphones they work great on my macbook. What are the components of headphone jacks that is probably interfering with the headphones?
