    Hi,
    I just got a Galaxy for testing from my Carrier (Orange Israel) for a week.
    I have a strange problem with the headphone jack.
    I have to press real hard in order to hear in both ears.
    Either my headphones plug is somehow shorter then expected (Etymotics ER-4P) or the phone jack is somehow defective.
    Is it a known issue with these phones?
    I have a week to decide whether I want to get the phone from them.

    are you using the samsung headphones or your own?

    theres other topics on this because there isnt a standard fit and the clip on the galaxy is weak so if the jack is a little smaller than it should be it doesnt sit correctly

    Well these are my own headphones (Etymotics ER-4P).
    So you are saying I need to get some kind of converter perhaps?

    Ok so I made some searches and apparently the best solution is to get Samsung's handsfree kit which has headphones jack?

    Well nevermind I guess.
    I will try and get some adapter that works.
    By the way I installed Pdanet for tethering (I am not at liberty to root the phone since i need to return it in a week) and it works great.

    My headphone jack is a little messed up too. When I wiggle the jack it randomly starts the music player and or changes the song being played.

    That happens here too, but hopefully this won't happen after I get the handsfree kit or some other kind of adapter.
