I've just received my Surface and love it, but there's one thing that doesn't seem right. All headphones I've tried work in only one ear unless I fiddle around with them and have them half plugged in. For instance, one pair of headphone have three rings, and if I plug it to the last ring but not all the way in then it works without an issue - full stereo sound. If I plug it in all the way then it only works in one ear, which just doesn't seem right to me. On my wife's iPhone and ipad it goes in flush and works with no issue, the same on my windows 8 laptop.
I've tried to go into Control Panel and change the sound settings but the options to do so are greyed out for any headphones I've tried.
Has anyone else experienced this or do you think its a hardware issue?
