headphones won't fit my one

    I've seen many threads about headphone issues but they all seem to relate to issues with certain headphones with microphones not working and something to do with two different types of headphone jacks.
    My issue is quite different - My meelectronics m9p headphones work with the mic being OK when I push them in very hard, but they don't seem to click into the jack properly. I've tried this with other headphones such as my senheiser PXC450 and nothing fits properly into the 'jack'. When they're 'pushed' in very hard they work a bit, but you don't get the usual fitting where they click into place, so they easily fall out. This is a hardware issue and may be different to what is on the threads already, and I'm at wits end and can't find any information on this - my support ticket with OnePlus has stalled so I want to know if anybody else has this problem and if I can get a solution.

    I had this issue with my ATH-M50x to only find out that there was lint stuck inside the jack jammed in at the bottom

    Are those meelectronics m9p headphones by any chance meant for Apple products? I do believe Apple uses a different form factor that requires an adapter for use with non-Apple products.

    As I said, it won't work with any headphone. And my headphones are designed for android.

    tienpham3221 - how did you get the lint out? It sounds like it's worth a try.

    @brownbag This^^^

    I saw a post some time ago about someone that had an absurd amount of lint stuck in the jack that was preventing the headphones from plugging in all the way.

    I think they used a bent paper clip or something.

    Has to do with most of those main stream headphones are designed for Apple devices

    Well first I checked if there was lint with a flashlight and then I used the pin that OnePlus gives you to open the SIM tray and I gently pressed the lint against the walls of the jack. It's like cleaning your ears

    If the lint theory is correct, I'd say try blowing it out with air can.

    Otherwise this does sound like an unfortunate hardware problem.

    seems like it's your jack that has some stuff in it, like the other guy said. Let us know if it was the problem.

    I currently have 6 pairs of in-ear heaphones and 3 pairs of headphone headset and everything works fine

    Thanks to the lint theorists. You were right. And I have no idea how it all got there - never had this happen on another phone. Anyway, cheers.

    My headphones don't work in my new oneplus one!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why would they not tell us that standard headsets won't work. This is really infuriating.

    I had the same issue 2 days back. All u need to do is clean the audio port manually by taking a sallotape and a toothpick. Wrsp the toothpick with the tape makung sure that the tape is tied in a opposite manner.clean the port with the instructions.
    Clean it more than 10 times... U will see lot of dust stuck at the tape.
    Good luck
