Headphone plug stuck in iPod Shuffle?

Somehow the end of my headphone plug got stuck in the headphone jack on my daughters ipod shuffle. I can't grab it with anything to pull it out. Any ideas?

Not a great picture.

Maybe a small drill bit.

I would try a small pair of tweezers to get in there and snatch it out.

I would not use a drill that might cause more damage. If you got some small tweezers would be the best but with as cheap as they are you might just be able to buy another one.

How about bringing it to the Apple Store and see what they have to say about it?

I would slam it down on a hard flat surface to jar it loose.

Are you sure someone didn't punk her by putting Krazy Glue in the jack? It's end of story if they did. At $50 to replace, probably not worth fixing if it doesn't come out clean.

Untrue. Due to apple's design with very small nubs conducting electricity inside instead of larger 'clip; like areas, you can force something in and twist it against the glue and the shell of the jack to break the glue up and let it fall out.

Source: Did this with an iPad.
