My audio jack is creating static feedback
First, ensure the headphone cable is fully plugged into the device. Many times if you only hear sound from one side of the headphone it is because the jack is not plugged in all of the way.
Second, try plugging your headphones into multiple devices, such as an iPod, cell phone, computer, etc. Also, be sure to check the volume controls on each device.
Thirdly, try rotating the jack in the device (8-10 times) while it is fully plugged in.  Rotating the jack can ensure a better connection, and often times will resolve the static issue.

If you are still encountering an issue please follow the link and file a warranty claim, and we will get you on your way to new headphones quickly. Visit for directions: www.skullcandy.com\warranty
