Thanks for the post.

Have you tried plugging in another pair of headphones into the Roku remote to see if you are experiencing the same issue?

Please keep us posted what you find out.

Re: Roku 3 earbuds sound not working

Have you verified the earbuds work by plugging them into another audio device (music player, phone, etc)?

For what it's worth, when I was using a Roku 3:

  • Earphones plugged into the Roku 3 remote tended to drain the batteries in a hurry.  In addition the earphone amplifier in the remote is on whenever the earphones are plugged in, so be sure to unplug them when not in use.
  • No matter what earphones I plugged in I would  get frequent and repeated audio interuptions of a second or so that spoiled the experience.

I found it much more satisfactory to plug my earphones into a mobile phone and usek the remote listening capabilities of the Roku app on the phone
