I got a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre (the Studios) as a gift. With how expensive they are (and how good), I decided not to put them into my ubuntu laptop, because I wasn't sure if they would work or not. Then one day out of curiosity, I plugged them in and tried to listen to music. Then The sound broke. The sound became all messed up, even when I unplugged them and put them in my iPod. Then my little brother plugged them into his iPod and they magically worked. So my question is, if I plug them into my laptop again, will they work? And if they don't, why won't they?
