Default Headphone problem

I have troubles with my headphone.
I have to insert it several times before sound is coming through the headphones.
After soms searching it seems to be a common Android problem.

- Is it a physical problem? If so, on the headphone or tablet?
- Are there workarounds for better connection ?
- Do Bluetooth headphones work fine too? I could see if I can find a decent one..

First, let's test if it's not a headphone issue, I had a defective headphone that no sound came at all on my Nexus 10, but other headphones works fine .

Try getting another headphone, any will do the work, even the cheapest ones, then see if it works, also test your headphone on another device to see if it's not defective in other devices as well .

No work around, it's plug and done. Just beware that headphones while charging will give you a weird noise in the background.

And AFAIK Bluetooth headphones will do the work as well .

Hope this helps,

Make sure you test bluetooth headphones first. What worked great with Jelly Bean no longer works for me with Kit Kat.
