    Welcome to Android Central! It's not unusual for this to happen. The problem if the phone played a ringtone through your headphones would be if you turned the volume down on the headphones, or if you were connected to your car's Bluetooth system and had the system turned off -- then you wouldn't hear it either. Can you turn on the Vibrate with Call option on the phone? That way you'd be able to feel it ringing. Also, what kind of headphones do you have? I have an LG Tone Pro necklace-style Bluetooth headset, and the necklace part vibrates when a call comes in.

    I use standard wired headphones and just need the audio to transfer to the headphones when plugged in. Would switching to an older OS like 7.1 fix the issue is if only 8.0 that is broken?

    There's no way to downgrade to Nougat, since the S9 ships with Oreo. I think this is just how it works on Oreo. Not sure if any 3rd party apps can help -- try SoundAbout.
