    Default Sound Still Through Speakers with Headphones In

    I was trying to set some ringtones on my phone at work (!) and thought using my headphones would keep the sound so only I could hear it. Nope. The sound was in the headphones AND through the speakers. Any way to turn this "feature" off?

    Had a co-worker, who thought she was listening to music on her computer through her headphones. She had it turned up loud since she couldn't really hear it because she had headphones on. She didn't realize that the entire office could hear her blasting her music from her desk. Hilarious.

    I have this issue and it is very frustrating!! It is my only problem with this phone! When you first plug them in the icon will appear in the notification bar but then disappear a couple seconds later.

    I have this issue too and it is darned annoying. In fact, if this cannot be solved it may be the final issue that makes me return the damned thing. I listen to music a lot in the car by patching the headphone out to the aux in of my stereo.

    For me, most often will plug in audio and get nothing at all from the stereo even though it's plugged in. Then for some reason maybe on the fifth or fifteenth try the audio will finally come through the stereo.

    Also whenever the player changes tracks, between songs, not only is it not gapless, but there's a loud "spark" noise. HIGHLY annoying. My old Samsung and my HTC M8 never did this.

    The G2 had a nice visual when you were charging the phone and inserting the audio Jack I don't know why they dropped it out of the G3..also while charging the G2 had a red LED indication while the G3 doesn't..

    I'm having a similar problem. I tried to plug my phone into external Bose speakers and it gives me an icon of a cable that looks like the end that you put in your phone. I get no audio. My htc never had a problem. Any thoughts?

    Wow...no real solution to this? If I can't fix this issue, this phone is going back.

    I would take it back nd exchange it. Sounds like a defect. I just tried plugging my headphones in. Plugged it into my car auxiliary and no issues. Sounds like a defective phone.

    I have the same - even though I'm using my headphones the alarm sound is coming from both the headphones and the speaker!

    Maybe it was a design choose by LG? I can understand why.

    Anybody else?

    Is there a way to turn off that? Ibdobt really mind but maybe somebody is.

    I discovered three things this morning.
    1. Apparently (I have not tested this extensively) if I plug in my 3.5mm audio between the G3 and the car stereo aux input FIRST, before firing up the music player on the G3, all is well. Sound comes out of the stereo system. I have not tested whether it STILL comes out of the speaker though.
    2. The annoying "spark/static/click" still occurs at the transition of every track. It sounds exactly as it one were to disconnect and reconnect the audio cable...that electronic noise that would occur when the connection is made or broken. This seems like very sloppy programming.
    3. There's a very high-pitched multi-tone (random) electronic noise which occurs maybe every 15 seconds or so. You can hear this when the sound is turned up and there is no media playing. Various little random tune patterns of very high frequency sound. Highly annoying.

    I seem to be running into the issue that my custom text notification sound blast at full volume on the phone when I have it adjusted to low while plugged into the speakers. Nothing else comes thru loud but that...


    It would appear the solution is to unplug the jack AND THEN adjust the notification sounds and plug back in. That is definitely a bug. It will at least for me not adjust while plugged.

    So...it also appears that this weird issue of the player not functioning after something is plugged into the headphone jack is different when using my audio AUX in cord connection, and the headphones. Using headphones, I do not get this problem and there is no odd "spark sound" between tracks. Perhaps there is something about the impedance it senses that causes it to become flukey?

    Do you need to get special headphones for the G3? None of mine work.

    How do they not work? What headphones are you using? Test your headphones at a shop that has the G3.

    I have some Skull Candy cans with an inline mic. My other pair are Samsung OEM. They will connect and show at varying times a connector, headphones, headphones with a mic. And if the phone moves position the track turns off and the symbol goes away. I can't put it in my pocket.

    From what you're saying it's a bad jack on your G3. So please take your earphones and test at a phone carrier store that has G3.
    I have a dozen different IEM and headphones and they all work with the G3. Including Xiamomi Piston with mic and Android control, V-Moda m100, etc.

    I don't use AUX - car so can't comment on that.

    it seems like the G3 has a very sensitive headphone jack. I get the snaps and crackles between tracks, the eletronic noise at times... and I've had problems with some headphones and aux cables. Other headphones work perfectly.

    Ive noticed the cables that give me problems also don't work the greatest on my other devices (but they do work). I suspect that something is not grounded on the G3, or perhaps the jack is really sensitive.

    Hopefully, this is something that can fixed via software patch.

    Discovered that the headphones make two clicks when inserted. You think the connector is all the way in but it isn't. You have to force it. You also have to rip it out when you are done.

    I am fairly certain that I could swing the phone around by the headphone cable and it wouldn't disconnect.

    I've never had a headphone jack this tight before. I guess it's a good thing.

    What you're describing is a defective G3 unless you have multiple bad headsets/cables. I'm not an audiophile but frequently play FLAC files and am very sensitive to artifacts - glitches, pops, static etc. My G3 doesn't have that, and if it was "normal" I would have returned it for a different phone. There is anecdotal evidence that some manufacturing runs or even models of the G3 have the sound issues that you describe. Don't settle for a malfunctioning device.

    I have a bunch of headphones - some higher end $300+ and also a half dozen in ear monitors, which range from inexpensive Xiamomi Pistons to audiophile quality. Some have removable cables, and I have extras of those. None of these cause pops or glitches.

    I have an LG Machthat had the same problem. Apparently, LG didn't build in the appropriate software to route the Bluetooth signal from the phone out-of-the-box. To remedy this, all is not lost. There are a number of decent apps on the Play Storethat might work. I use Sound About. There are many settings that allow routing from your phone to a variety of output devices, both wired and wireless. Your music player might have similar options. When searching for an app, type "Bluetooth through headset."
