Can anyone recommend me any headphones for my Nexus? I was just going to use any random pair I had lying around but I just read this in comments on Wired:
“it does not function with any set of headphones I own”
I would suggest their headphone port is broken? The Nexus 7 has a standard 3.5mm jack. All the usual phones should work.
Locky, I use a cheap pair of sony buds on my day to day travels, I’ve used the same type since I got my first walklman! Buying a similar model each time they eventually break (get trodden on).
At home I use a quality pair, again made by Sony. These are great sounding headphones with a good reputation. They are big and don’t look cool, but they are cheaper than other premium headphones such as the Beats range. With the latter you are paying for the “street cred”.
I use both of these on my Nexus 7 no probs.
If anyone is into base, go for the next model up in the range, proper soul shaking base from these monsters:
I think headphone preference can be a personal thing, but having listened to a number at a range of prices I love these.
I’ve plugged 3 different kinds of headphones into mine and used 3 different sets of jack cables to plug my N7 into different devices and they all work fine. The thought of a standard mini jack size socket not taking standard headphones doesn’t make sense. As nx7 suggested, their port could be broken.
