    Welcome to Android Central! Sorry for the basic question, but are you certain the plug is all the way in? Some devices have a tight headphone jack, which requires some extra pressure to get the plug in all the way. You should feel and/or hear a click when it's in properly.

    Also be aware that Samsung is pretty strong on keeping the headphone volume low, to avoid hearing damage. (It's real, not a fable, that constant not-so-loud sound will damage your hearing - I'm an example of it.) Some manufacturers allow full volume through the headset jack, some reduce it somewhat, Samsung reduces it a lot.

    Trust me, when you're in your 60s and most of your friends say "huh?" a lot, you'll be glad of that.
