    I thought everyone might find this amusing or I did at least.

    I keep having problems with my headphones. I started troubleshooting all the possibilities. I started thinking it was something technical such as something to do with the sound card in my computer. well I took it all apart and come to find out that the wires that connect to the mic on the headphones and the speakers for the headphones had been wrap in masking tape. So the speakers wires were touching the mic wires. and causing it to not function properly. I guess that what I get for buying some Third World country headphones right? I thought it was funny..:D

    Guess they were out of lead free solder and wanted to stay in compliance.
