Headphone quality sucks unless I twist the cord, but the cord is new!
Awhile ago I couldn't maintain decent audio quality without twisting or angling the cord to my headphones. It became too much of a hassle to keep fussing with it and I thought for sure the cord was bad, so I abandoned it and settled for using the Bluetooth function on my headphones until I got a new one. When I use Bluetooth, the sound quality is fine and I have no issues - however, I JUST got a new cord today and when I tried it out, the quality was bad and only worked when I twisted it just like before!
It seems like the issue isn't the cord, but something to do with where I plug it into the headphones. Although I don't have any other headphones to test this theory - I don't believe the problem is my laptop's jack because I have to twist the cord right at the base of my headphones.
Wiggling the plug does nothing, it's only when I lift the cord in such a way that it will give me full quality. The port itself seems secure so I don't think it's loose. This has been a major pain in my butt and I'm really sad to find out my problem wasn't the cord, I can't replace these headphones!
What do? :(
