    Why doesn't the headphone jack go in all the way? I don't want to force it. Do you need an adapter? The jack goes in but not all the way.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but the "jack" is the part inside the iPad, it's the "plug" that goes into it.

    Mine is fine, are you sure you're using headphones with the correct size plug?

    Right. If the plug isn't going all the way in, you're using the wrong-sized plug. Also, make sure it has two black circles on it (stereo).

    You say you don't want to force it, but the first time I plugged my headphone in I had to push pretty firmly. If it goes in most of the way, but not that last little bit I would say you have the right size, but are not being assertive enough in pushing it in.

    The plug snaps into play you must push it in all the way. It may feel like you are forcing it but you are not.

    As wnaylor states, the ipad is tight, give it a proper push.

    Thank you

    I googled "ipad using headphones" because I was having the same problem -- results got me to this page.

    Based on good advice of previous posters, I pressed more firmly, the plug went a little further into the jack, and I am up and running.

    Thanks for the good advice!

    Take iPad out of case!

    Makes it easier to push in headphone jack all the way...regular iPod earbuds fit fine with a little extra push!
