My 2G iPod Touch served me exceptionally well however these days it's only really used for Apps rather than listening to music. Basically my iPod Touch's headphone jack became faulty around this time last year. I could only hear through one side of my headphones. At first I presumed it was the headphones but after buy numerous new pairs, it became obvious it was the headphone jack. I did a bit of research at the time on how to fix it but nothing really worked. I also looked into how it might've occurred. Most places listed water damage but my iPod Touch as never came into contact with water, except for the odd drop of rain on the screen on a wet day. One place listed that the jack may have become damaged/faulty because headphones had been left plugged in there for long periods of time. Since purchasing a 160GB Classic, I never leave the headphones plugged in when not listening to music. Should I continue doing this? It can be a bit of a pain because I like to listen to music while in bed to help me get to sleep but having to take the headphones out when I've finished instead of naturally falling asleep is a bit of a pain. I guess I've become a bit anxious about having headphones plugged in. In short, can anyone shed any light/experiences on leaving headphones plugged into the jack for a long period of time?
