I had that too. I literally got my 5 yesterday. Just put in my headphones and it only works in the left ear. If I jiggle it around it just makes a crackling noise. That's pretty annoying. I guess I will take it to the apple store and see what they say.

Sharing this again here in hopes that my find will help others:
I had this issue also and found that I needed to push the headphones connector way more into the iPhone. Actually discovered that while holding them in to get them to work and accidentally pushed them and they went in all the way. Now they are perfectly secure and no more crackling and the volume buttons on the remote portion actually work now. Hope this helps many solve this issue. I know it did me cuz I was about to take my iPhone to an Apple store since I got in only days ago. Blessings!

Hope this helps others also and saves folks a trip to their mobile carrier or Apple Store unnecessarily not to mention the frustration of thinking the headphones or headphone jack doesn't work!

So helpful, complete solution to this problem. Love your user name. Thank you, sing on, and Happy New Year.
PS: I'd like to give you a "This solved my question" check mark for ten points as listed on the right sidebar under "Legend," but (typical Apple) I can't figure out how to use these.

Thank you, I'm so glad this solution is helping folks! I was myself worried I'd have to make a trip to the Apple store after just getting my phone just a week ago. Loving it so much now!

But how do I give you your 10 points of credit?

I was trying to figure the points thing out also. This is the first time I've posted here. It looks like maybe you click where it says "This solved my question" with the green icon on the right side of the screen but not sure.

That was not the case with mine. My head phones just didn't work at all. Even the people at the Apple store tried it and jiggled it around. They just did not work. Apple was really cool about it though. The guy heard they didn't work and he just straight up gave me a new pair. No more questions asked. The new ones have worked ever since. (3 months)

Hi Ho Say,
I'm glad that even though you had a different issue that it got resovled and free, I know you're glad to have working headphones--I can relate, I love music!
