If I pull the headphone jack slightly out of my ipod it makes pretty much any song instrumental. Don't get me wrong, the sound quality goes on to become pretty shoddy, but there is usually no trace of any vocal track in the song, at all.

Has anyone else noticed this, or is my iPod a master of Black Magic? I can't understand how it's possible.

EXPLAIN.

I don't know how it happens but when my old headphones broke, every song was like that. The sound quality was kinda shitty and there was no vocals.

My laptop used to do this when I plugged it into my speakers. Then it just stopped. Probably wasn't a great idea to open a karaoke bar based on that

If you want to know why it happens, I *think* I can help:

Your headphones have three contacts - left, right, and a common ground. (So the circuit for the right speaker goes from right > speaker > ground, likewise for the left speaker.)

I suspect what happens when you partially unplug them is that the ground disconnects before the others. Since what you are hearing is the (voltage) difference between the left/right and the ground, yet the the ground is now disconnected and so floats at a voltage between the right and left, all you are hearing is the difference between the two channels.

Since the vocals are almost always panned central, there is no difference between l & r channels, therefore with the plug partially out, you hear no vocals!

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

My MP3 pretty much does this automatically because it's output jack is broken. It sounds really far away, unless I get the the headphones plugged in just right.
