Headphone Jack Not Working On New Build?

I recently built a computer, it's working fine aside from my headphones. I didn't buy any speakers because I was cutting corners and hardly used anything outside of headphones anyways. The headphones were working fine up until yesterday, they keep cutting out and my computer keeps saying that I removed a device from the audio jack, I can twist the headphones in the jack and I can hear sound but the second I move it goes right back to saying it's unplugged. I know it's not the headphones because they are working fine on my other computer.

Does anyone know why this is happening and is there any way to fix it? I've already checked the hd audio cable and it's connected to the motherboard fine.

If it matters, here's my specs.

    If you plug into the mobo does it work? The front audio header might be bad.

    Turns out that was the problem, guess the front one is shot. Oh well, I'm just happy I can listen to music again. Thanks for the help. :)
