One of my Yamaha HS-50M monitors fell from the desk recently. It had a normal Tip/Sleeve connector plugged in, but upon impact the jack got a bit loose.
Now in order to get a signal, I have to pull the connector a few millimeters out of the jack.
When listening to music, now I get a really strange effect. It sounds like the monitors are out of phase, with the music (and especially vocals) not having a distinct stereo position.
Is this something only in my imagination? Or is it technically possible that such an effect occurs because of a broken jack?
