You may want to also check for '..' and ';' in the variable also if your paranoid, else a variable of '../../../../../../../' makes a sad panda.

if its from a phone, you probably want a trrs adaptor, but it could be the headphones have trible and bass speakers on them and one's blown. Highly unlikely though, but without a trrs it wouldn't work at all, either.
