I have put this to twitter and other social media as i have a problem that's very odd.

Overnight my standard headphones no longer play in stereo, only on the left hand side???

I pod touch i pod nano and Galaxy note 4 only play on the left.

BUT put on headphones with an inline mic or gaming headset i get stereo :shock:

3 new pairs of sony bud earphones do not play in stereo no matter what i do?

Has anyone else had this problem?
They all worked fine boxing day but after that they don't...

One confused mono WRETRO here :-|

If it was one device then I would say it’s the jack, I know on iPods you can change them to mono audio

Bit of an odd one mate!

I'd check the settings on all your devices with your headphones in. Maybe there's options or a sound profile that's different to the handsfree profile. I know one of my sister's kids fucked around with her iPhone and iPad to trick her into thinking they were broken, so may be a thought!

Beyond that it may be worth cleaning out your jacks with something like compressed air. Test some other devices you may have like TV, Vita, PC/Laptop. Could always take your devices to Curry's or somewhere to test out a few different headphones too.

Thanks for the help but it seems to be the Sony Headphones themselves.
I bought 3 of them ( i get through a lot of ear bud headphones) and none of them work in stereo.
Bought a really cheap set of non named headphones with Mic for £4 and they work perfectly :-D

Ah, Sony tends to have a different in the way the jacks connect in the socket and also they do ones that only support certain devices. I will never buy Sony headphones again as the quality has been getting worse by the year

It is very odd. I have a dislike for Sony headphones, my pair that I have will be in stereo one day and mono the next. I haven’t even unplugged them from the device. If I wobble the jack I might get it back in stereo
