Default 3.5mm Headphone Jack

Anyone notice that the Headphone input is super awkward? Most of my headphones won't even fit into it properly.

My headphones don't like to stay in especially with the silicon case on. It drives me nuts when I have my car stereo hooked into jack and it gets bumped a little and all I hear is a pop and loud static. Had a similar problem with my Incredible 1.

Noticed that also. It's a flat jack on a rounded edge... Seems odd to me.

I'm hoping that one of those 3.5mm input extenders might do the trick.

That's a good idea. It didn't seem to be an issue without a case but with its definitely annoying.

I guess im one of the very few with no issues at all.

I actually bought a set of those "beats by dre" headphone sets and it fits perfectly. Also works just fine with my subwoofer at work

Bought this and it's been working great. http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

Fit's snuggly in the jack, even with my Otterbox case on.
