I got my iPhone 5 today and music only plays from the right headphone, no matter what headset I use.  This also happened with my iPhone 4 so I thought the problem would be gone with the new phone. So I am thinking it might be a setting or something, but I can't figure out how to change it.  Thanks for any help!

iPhone 5, iOS 6

    Forgive what may be a dumb question in my part, but you have confirmed that the headphones are fully plugged in? I haven't had hands on an iPhone 5 to check, but with most other Apple devices, the headphones take a pretty firm push to get them fully seated. There's normally a light "snap" that can be felt when they're completely plugged in.


    Hope that helps.
