    I have Samsung Galaxy S2 with MIUI Rom.

    I have this some unique issue which i tried looking up on net but am unable to find a solution.

    I recently Purchased a Sennheiser MX 170 EarPhone.
    When i normally connect this to my S2, the music still plays through the speaker of the phone.
    But when i tilt it & put a pressure on it then it plays through the headPhone
    & as soon as i remove the pressure it again plays through the speaker.

    This happens with most of the headphones, only few earphones do play correctly on my phone.

    I dont know if anyone else is facing this issue or not.
    But please help me out.
    Where the problem is.

    If you're not using an adapter or a case that may be contributing to the issue it sounds like something may indeed be wrong with the headphone jack.

    No im not using anything.
    If something is wrong with the headPhone jack, then all the headphones shoudnt work.
    Few Headphones are working perfectly.
    Some of them are not working

    Look very carefully at the plug on the headphones that work and the plug on the headphones that don't work. Are they pretty much exactly the same? Is the shroud surrounding the plug different...bigger?

    Plug shroud, the plastic piece from which the 3.5mm plug protrudes. This piece generally comes into contact with the phone with the headphones are plugged in.

    The Sennheiser headphone has an "L Shaped jack" & a small Shroud.
    and Other headphone which have worked have strait jack & shroud like this.

    One more question :
    Does the rings on the jack matter ?
    'coz this samsung one has 3 rings whereas sennheiser mx 170 has 2 rings :

    Hmmm...are you getting any different behavior in 2-ring plugs vs. 3-ring? The 3rd ring is for the mic and music controls on headphones with a mic.

    I dont know that for sure yet.
    'coz the ring pattern i have just started observing right now.

    But this MX 170 doesnt work which has 2 rings & that samsung earphones which has 3 rings works perfectly fine.

    This is an old thread, but I had a similar problem recently. I installed toggleheadset2 (from the Play Store).
