Thanks for the reply. I checked out your Altec on Amazon and noted that it has a built in mic so the plug must be wired differently. My $10.00 "Walkman" headset doesn't work so it's either that or a hardware problem.
I guess the best thing to say is disregard this thread. I thought I had the jack all the way in but the last 1/16 inch took a lot of pressure. I was afraid that I was going to break something. All works fine now. Consider this issue resolved.
I think I'll look on Amazon for an inexpensive set of bluetooth headphones.
Hi Arnold, I recently purchased the AKG Q701 and am now looking for an external amplification. May I ask what do You use with Your K702's? How do they sound on the Surface? I presume You listen to wave files on it as from what I understood Flac is still not supported on the Surface?
