The front headphone jack on my new mac pro desktop computer does not transmit sound when connecting a headphone or ear buds.  The sound still comes from the speakers and is not redirected to the head phone.  The port has never worked.  Any solutions?

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    okay, try option-clicking on the speaker icon on the top of your screen. That should bring up a list of sound output options. including headphone. You could try messing around with Audio MIDI. It may be possible that the thing is still stuck inside the headphone jack. Careful use of a toothpick may get it unstuck. I dunno, I've never had a problem with the headphone jack. If all else fails, call Apple or take 'er in for an appointment
