    watching a you tube video, SP3 not docked and not plugged in. Wanted to use headphones but when I plugged in the sound continued from the SP3 speakers. Most stuff just goes right to earphones when plugged in. Checked search but nothing under headphone jack not working.

    Go into sound settings and set you earphones to default

    thanks, I'll see if I can find sound settings somehow. For $1500 would be nice to just plug in like everything else I've ever had. I'm so dreadfully sorry I bought this "thing" but buyer beware so my fault. thanks again

    Plug in your headphones, then on Start screen, click on the search icon, search for sound device settings, click on it,then click on the headphone icon, and set it as you default.

    No. It should default back to the on board speakers when the ear phones are unplugged. Then next time you plug in ear phones, it should automatically go back to the ear phones-all automatically without you having to do anything either way.
