Nexus 4 Headphone Jack problem
I recently bought a new Google Nexus 4 by LG and have this problem. I have about 5 different headphones from cheap to expensive, such as Panasonic RPHJE120K, Klipsch IMAGE S4 In-Ear Enhanced Bass Noise-Isolating, Bose IE2 Audio. When I try using one of them to to listen to music and forcibly push the jack, none of them could fit snugly into the phone. To get sound, I need to lightly force it in and hold it into the connection. If I let go, the sound will be lose.
It seems to be a big problem and common on new devices. If you can't hear anything, except from the system speakers, you should gotta push them in more to get them tightly fitting. After a few uses, it will break-in and be working well.
If there is only audio on the left/right of the headphones, make sure it is not faulty and snug in the port. The methods fix the issues.
