Having trouble monitoring with headphones

Hi everyone

I'm having a very hard time being able to listen to my mix through headphones in stereo. When I plug my headphones into my Studio 2/6 USB audio interface, all I can hear is everything playing back on the left side? When I look at the interface, it's showing stereo levels including inside Studio One Professional. Why can't I hear this through my headphones? My tracks are all recorded. I just would really like to know how to listen with headphones, and have my song playing back in stereo instead of mono

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thank you for taking the time to read this

Hey Guitarist

I can think of a couple of things it may be.

1st it could be that you are using a Mono 1/8" to 1/4" adapter which of course would only give you mono.

2nd it could be a loose connection in the headphones - I would try them on some other device just to be sure, say an mp3 player ordirectly to a computer or phone

I am thinking  these two, since you can see the output metering on both left and right channels on your Studio 2/6
