 iPhone 7 Headphones not working

iPhone 7 and 8 only works 1/2 of the time with the headphone to lightning jack.  I have to answer or start a call, then I can plug in my headphones.  If I start the call with the headphones in, no one can hear me.


Try the following:

Try Other Headphones
Clean the Headphone Jack
Look into the headphone jack to see if you can detect any lint
Restart the iPhone
Check AirPlay Output
