    If I pull on my headphones while they're plugged into my unibody any more than .5mm the sound goes back to the Macbook speakers. Are anybody else's headphones this sensitive? I really don't even have to pull on the headphones. The headphone jack doesn't securely hold the cord.

    Okay. I'm reading in other places that when people get a replacement that it has the same thing. I guess it's just something I'll have to live with. :(

    Mine was like this, it's a defect. They will have to replace your logic board, or if your lucky like me they gave me a new computer (only cause I had a few more problems).

    Add another one to this list. Music has started playing out of my speakers several times at the slightest of touches of the wire plugged into the headphone jack, only to go away after giving it another nudge.

    A very annoying flaw.

    Same here, it is pretty annoying. I use a 3.5mm wire to connect to external speakers and it is so annoying to get it work sometimes.

    Call Apple?
