Default Baofeng mic

I just bought a baofeng handheld mic but the headphone jack does not work properly I connect the mic to the radio and it works properly you can hear audio and talk but when I insert headphones for private listening it mutes the mic speaker and nothing plates from the headphones I have tryed multipul headphones but if I find the sweet spot the headphone works but the speaker in the mic is still playing audio I have tryed a friend's mic and the same thing has any one else had this and what did you do to solve the problem it seems I have to hard wire the headphone to the speaker but don't want to do that if there is other options

Are you using stereo headphones or a monaural earpiece?

I've had very similar problems with my Baofengs.
What fixed mine was spraying some contact cleaner
into the mic and headphone jack.

I will try that but I believe we are talking about different jacks I'm talking about the jack located on the mic not on the radio I am familiar with the problem with the jacks on the radio but that is not the case
