    no matter what headphones i plug in, it has the same problem...if i lile turn the plug of the headphones or kind of jiggle it, the sound will cut off in one or both ears...how can i fix this? i already tried cleaning the adio jack

    Your headphone jack is probably messed up due to repeated vigorous headphone removal.

    Where'd you suddenly get the idea of shoving some alum. foil in?

    well i figured that one of the pins was pushed over a little bit, cuz if i kinda moved the plug from one side to the other i would hear noise in one or the other headphone...so i thought that the plug just needed to be a little bigger to touch all of the inside of the jack at the same time, and i remembered i used foil before to fix a problem like this with a battery, so i tried it, and it worked!!!

    I dont know if AL is a wise choice... It could easily lead into induction damaging whats left of your ipod
