Well I got the HD25's a few months ago and now two MP3 players have the same problem. The sound cuts out*Ipod is left ear sansa clip is right ear*, I do not believe it is the cable and it does not happen all of the time. I have tried the Ipod with various other headphones and that confirmed it was the headphone jack in the Ipod its self. I have just ordered a Cowon J3 and I hated my Itouch*selling for a cheep price with a guide to fix it, I just don;t have the time* Has anybody else encountered something like this? I do keep them in my coat pocket, never drop them. I am pretty rough on the cable but as I said the cable is somehow still fine.
