Wired headphones not automatically detected when plugged in

When I plug in my wired headphones they are not recognized by Zorin automatically. Audio keeps playing from the speakers and in settings the new headphones don't even show up.

To get the OS to recognize the headphones I need to run pulseaudio --kill which is a bit annoying to have to do each time. How do I make the system automatically recognize the headphones are plugged in?

Are your wired headphones plugged in a 3.5mm jack or USB?

In terminal type alsamixer
Hit F5 to show All sound channels.
Post a screenshot.
We may find something there to try.
