    It seems my headphone jack on my PC case (CM Storm Scout) is not working properly. It works sometimes but once in a while it the audio gets cut off and I have to readjust the positioning of the audio plug to get the sound again. I think there is connection problems with the jack. (ie. it is becoming loose) So how do I improve the connection between the jack and the headphone. By the way, it is not the headphone, I tested multiple headphones that work on other devices.

    Well a tiny piece of aliminumfoil sometimes can help if its the actual jack

    But from the sound of it its not the jack but rather the connection the jack has with your PC. If its the latter you can open up your PC and check it out. Usually its not easy fixing an onboard soundcard due to it being hidden pretty well.

    Might aswell go to the shops and pick up a new soundcard for like 15 bucks
