I was listening to the text to speech this morning on the way to work and thought I'd try my headphones and I can only hear in one ear bud. I did test the actual headphones with my iPod and they work fine, I can hear thru both ear buds. I tried to jiggle around the connection on the Kindle (new one, K2) and I could barely hear a click in the one ear bud, but no real sounds.

Think it's a faulty unit? Just wanted some input before I call customer service. I have not rebooted the Kindle, but don't really see how this will help.

BTW, the text to speech sounds much better with headphones! (even only thru one ear  :))

You've got some kind of problem because I hear TTS out of both sides of my headphones. Maybe the jack wasn't pushed in far enough.

I tried removing, jiggling etc. the headphone jack and it still won't work right.

BTW, just looked at your blog and I am in Suwanee, too and we have a motorcycle. :) Honda ST1300.

I can hear output from both sides using the Z-Buds from Zagg.

There was a thread mentioning a way to get these at a discount a few days ago, but I can't seem to find it now.

Nice! Then you should ride it on Friday. The weather should be great.

The headphones work fine with my Ipod.

Will probably get out on the bike this weekend for sure!

Anyone have trouble with volume?  DH's won't go loud enough even with the volume turned all the way up - and this is with the headphones on - if he's in a loud area - like doing the dishes.  ;)

It was a thread in the Forum Central - Members Only but the offer was only good thru Feb 28 - wouldn't hurt to check to see if it is ongoing.

Okay, I am such an idiot! The headphone jack just wasn't pushed all the way in! I tried it numerous times and I kept doing the same thing. Duh! At least now I know.

Ah, see :)

I had the same problem when I tried using my iPhone earbuds. It looked right but needed an extra click to get them to work.
