Check the headphone jack or Bluetooth connection.

If the headphones are plugged in securely and the problem persists, then there may be a problem with the headphone jack itself. You can try cleaning the headphone jack with a cotton swab or compressed air. If that does not work, you may need to replace the headphone jack.

To check the Bluetooth connection, make sure that the headphones are paired with your device and that the Bluetooth is turned on.
