Default Klipsch headphones sound on left side only

I have the Samsung galaxy note 2 & I bought the Klipsch s4s headphones. I had this problem with only getting sound from the left side. I contacted the company and they replaced them. The new one worked for a few weeks then they did the same thing

I go through headphones like you wouldn't believe, I've had this happen to a few. If you move the cable around, next to where it plugs in to the phone, does sound come back to both headphones if it's held at a certain angle?

No. i get nothing out of the right side. both sets work fine at first then it stops working in few weeks. i made a mistake on my op. i am using the s4a and not the s4s if that makes a difference. i thought klipsch was a good headphone company and it says it is for android on the box but maybe there is a better option out there. headphones should not do this in just a few weeks

Ive got the same headphones, and I think I read that they have a warranty. IMO those headphones are way too bassy.

They sent me a replacement which worked at first then the replacement did the same thing the first pair did. i'm just wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue with klipsch & if i should look at another brand

Mine have been bent and twisted around loads and still work fine. The best headphones I ever had were the Sony MDR-V600. Old, but amazing quality.

Here's a little tip I learned in my Pocket PC days. If you're going to use wired headphones it's a good idea to get an l-shaped adapter for the plug. This cuts down the possibility of snagging the cord causing pin separation inside your headphone jack. I don't think that's what's happening with Sovby's device but I thought I'd just throw this out there seeing as we're talking about headphones not working properly. Pins separated in the headphone jack can cause the same effect described by him.

it's strange that it happened to both of them in the same ear. This leaves me to believe that it is something about the brand or even this particular model. I had a bluetooth headset but i got rid of it because the sound would always go in and out. plus I've always heard that they cause brain cancer. i dont know how much truth there is to that but I've heard that from people who's opinions i respect
