Why don't your headphones work on iTunes?

My understanding is that when you plug your headphones into the computer and try to play a song on iTunes, the sound does not work. The first fix to try is to make sure the headphones actually connect into the computer and work. Some headphones do not work with some ports in the computer for headphones. The second possible fix is to make sure you are plugging it into a headphone slot and not a video slot. These two slots are commonly mixed up.
