this sounds stupid but it has worked for me in the past.. take the head phone that is makin eletrical noises and blow lightly in it.. if that does not work try it again and blow a bit harder.. I am sure there is some sort of high tech reason for this but here is mine.. the material in the ear bud can get loose because of use and volume increase and decrease. if you blow lightly it can move that material back to where it needs to be and it will fix the sound issue.

I hardly ever used them. I switched to Sennheiser PXC headphones a week into my 3G iPod, and I love them.

I am an audio-junkie.

Used to have that crackly sort of sound in my left earphone but then for some reason it sorted itself out.

Other than that I've have no problem with them.

My friend said its if you listen to it loud for to long it happens
i never have my ipod below 80% volume generally 100%

I might try take my ipod back under warrenty and see if they will accept it, its worth a try :p

They might give you new headphones, but I doubt you'll get a new ipod.

The headphones that come with the iPod are super-cheap Chinese sweat shop made garbage. It doesn't surprise me in the least that you're having issues already. Even the cheapest set of Sony ear buds are a better choice. Besides, white ear buds scream "I have an iPod on me" and invite would-be thieves.

Yep, mine cut out after a month of somewhat high volume listening so i went with a pair of Sennheisers. My girlfriends, on the other hand, are still going strong.

I never use the iPod headphones either. I used to use my Sony EX-71s, and then I switched to the Shure E3c.

There should be a "none of the above" option in this poll. :)

One of the ears on mine starting giving static 3 or 4 weeks after getting it. It was no big deal, because they hurt my ears anyway!

I never liked the iPod headphones, so I switched to the Shure E2Cs. MUCH better. In fact, there's no comparison. It's like a Bentley versus a tricycle :black:

No , mostly because I haven't had extended experience with them. However, mine did back a lot of noise, like popping, when I would be walking/working out with them. But since I started wearing them a new way (see my post in this thread) I haven't had any problems.
