    When you have your headphones plugged in, is there a tiny amount of wiggle to it when you hold the headphone jack and move it while its plugged in?

    I am talking about slight play. The headphones click in firmly but I can just feel them move slightly. I am only asking because I accidentally pulled it away while I had the headphones around my neck.

    Sounds to me like the I/O board has come loose. There is a screw that secures the I/O board to the upper case. Just tighten that screw...

    It’s the bare minimum movement. More like 0.5 mm.

    Anyone? I am talking about the smallest amount of play if you try to move the headphone jack while plugged in.

    What u wants hear? U bumped into the fender and now there is a slight gap in the panels, there is nothing you can easily do other than replacing the jack if it bothers you so much.

    Mine is still perfect but I wouldn't obsess about it if this happens to me.
