My iPad was fine when I first got it but after a little while, the earbuds stopped working. I tried my earbuds on other devices and they worked fine. I tried other earbuds but they get the same thing. The only thing I could hear was static and sometimes I could hear the correct sounds but they're barely audible. If I turn up the sound to volume 12, I can hear the sounds perfectly, but then there's no point in wearing earbuds because it's too loud and everyone else can hear it. By the way, my iPad is an iPad 4.
