After plugging in my headphone into my iphone 4s no sound comes through. I can hear the music from the phone itself. Do I need to change the settings?
I had the same issue with a 4 and a 3GS, the solution? it was dust, I had to use a pin to get dust out, after that it worked.
If that is not the issue, try using the headphones in another device. Also try using other headphones in the iPhone.
Maybe you are not pushing it in all the way. I thought mine were defective until I pushed harder than I thought I should.
If you have any kind of phone protector make sure the jack hole opening is not not obstructed by the cover! You might have to stretch the cover hole a little to push headphone jack all the way in! That was my problem it works fine when in all the way.
