Is this the part I need?

-Fix sound in only one ear
-Can fix bad hold switch
-Can fix no sound
-Can fix distorted sound

This headphone jack and hold switch for the iPod 3rd Generation is mainly used to repair an iPod with sound from only one side or a jack that outputs distorted or static sound. If the headphone jack is loose or feels worn, replacing this part can help.

In some situations, replacing the headphone jack can fix issues related to no sound at all, but it's more likely an issue with the logic boards sound chip and requires replacing the motherboard. This part can also fix an intermittent or non-working hold switch, unless the hold switch extension is broken off from the logic board.

NOTE: The headphone jack for the 10gb, 15gb, and 20gb iPod 3rd Generation models is different. These models use a thinner single-platter hard drive. Therefore the backplate is thinner and the headphone jack and hold switch assembly is a different size.


Apple does not sell their parts in the market. Therefore, the parts you see available will always be aftermarket unless they are part-outs from a used device. The quality of the replacements is not equal. Over the years we have sorted through, literally, hundreds of manufacturers to build an offering of the highest quality parts on the market.

Feel confident in your purchase knowing that you will notice no difference in the fit, size, material or functionality of your replacement iPod jack.
