Some new users thought there was something wrong with their unit when they had 'thought' it was fully seated and only got sound from the right channel. I also did that when using the socket for the first time...but knew that I obviously had not fully seated the headphone plug and pushed a little more to overcome the good fit, and felt the plug travel that little more to fully and truly be seated. I then had full left and right channels being sent to the headphone.
I just thought to comment.
It seems a common problem with different devices and brands of headphone plugs. One would have thought they'd adhere to a common standard, but maybe the tolerances of the standard are too loose.
