I need help. Lemme explain...

 

This problem is for both of my headset jacks, one in the front of my box and one in the jack.

 

As of a week or two ago out of the blue my headphone quality got distorted and sounds either very low or like im listening to aliens communicate.

 

I've tried multiple different headsets and headphones and they are not the problem (Kinda).

 

If I pull my headset out slightly then the audio is normal yet my very expensive headset, you cant pull it out enough to where the speakers wont play so only one headset works and it doesn't have a microphone attached to it.

 

The headset that works seems a lot tighter in the jack and has three curves on the adapter instead of my expensive headphones 2.

 

Now im wondering

1. Why do my headphones not work unless they are slightly pulled out (Which is really anoyying and i want to find a solution)

2. Does the black curves in the adapter have anything to do with this?

And

3.  Is this an internal problem with my computer (Seems like it since both of the jacks have the exact same problem all of the sudden, And no i didn't change any settings)

 

Help would be very much appreciated, Thank you :)

The headphones are stereophonic, and the black space is what separates the left channel from the right channel.

 

Please post the make and model of this computer and the to sets of headphones.

Those board edge mounted headphone jacks are very prone to jamming and yanking (accidental) that seperates the jack from the board, creating poor connections to the board.  Serious failures can lift traces from the board egde and make repair tedious.  Headphones with microphones included have three seperate circuits and can interfere with proper operation in a stereo jack.
