Are the Earphone Jacks supposed to stay half outside?

    My Ipod Touch earphone jack is half exposed when I plug it in, is it supposed to be like this? Also, I find that my music keeps constantly stopping when listening with earphones plugged in. Is something wrong with my Ipod?

    There is something wrong ... are you sure you are pushing them in as far as they will go?

    Okay, sorry I exaggerated a bit. There are 3 white lines on the jack and the last one is exposed.

    Are they regular headphones?

    Yeah. I got them with the Touch. They are the ones with a built-in mic and volume control system thing.

    Yeah, as far as they can go. I have to constantly keep pushing them back in to make sure the music doesn't stop :(

    Then something is wrong, with either the headphones or the iPod.

    Do you have another set of earphones you can try?

    Yeah, I think it is the earphones. Thanks for the help.

    I initially had this problem with my earbuds, too. You have to push the connector in farther than you think, until you feel a click/snap and the jack is securely engaged. You will feel it when the connection is as it should be. You'll be able to turn the device upside down and the connection will remain intact & unaffected. The white rubber connector should be flush up against the bottom of the Touch. :)

    Hey if you look at the other posts most suggest pushing it in properly , now will that be the ipod's fault or the user's?

    The last part of the push is harder than the rest (on my new touch). The whole metal part of the plug should be inside the iPod when you have pushed it far enough. Then the sound should stop cutting out also.
