Headphone port being odd
I tried plugging up some Skullcandy FMJ headphones to my Pearl Flip and it only had sound from the right channel. However, when it's plugged half way sound comes from both channels but with a high pitched buzz. Has anyone had that happen with other headphones?
I give up on headphones for that reason. I've tried 15+ headphones and adapters on my 8830WE.
Always try a few pair of headphones first. If they don't work either it might be some dust or inside it's chipped. See if you can take a look down the headphone jack and spot anything unusual.

As far as another set of headphones... I haven't tried that yet. I will probably try tonight.
I didn't see anything that could be stuck inside the port... but I'll give that a shot.
Battery pulls have been done however with no success.
Second set of headphones later and same issue... My Blackberry stereo handsfree set is at home so I can't quite test those at my dorm.
I also cleaned out the port so I don't believe that should be an issue either.
Anyone else experiencing the same problems?
For anyone having problems with their headphone port... I managed to get mine solved.
My seller swapped me with another and it worked great! Some folks on other Blackberry forums have said some times the headphone port gets damaged so a swap is usually the only way out...
Another solution would be to get some Bluetooth stereo headphones... if you don't mind cost.
I'll get a fresh 8830WE now, so I can sell it the end of April when I am up for a new BB!
