However if you have an iPhone 5 you can read the specialized guide on how to fix iphone 5 headphone error here
1. Make sure your Headphone Jack is clean
The most common issues like “iPhone Headphone Jack Noise and Static” or “iPhone No Headphone Audio” are related to dust that is clogged up in the audio jack. What you can do is to take
a needle or other small pin and try to get the dust out of your audio jack
You will be shocked how much dust is stuck in your iPhone headphone jack once you take the effort to look inside and clean it up. Now plug your iPhone Headphones back in, if you still hear static or have issues with your audio repeat the process 2 more times and if that doesn’t help try step 2.
2. Check if Silent Mode Switch is on
If this didn’t help you fix your iPhone Headphone jack then you have to check if your Silent Mode switch (also known as mute mode) is turned on. If its turned on make sure its turned off (orange colour should not be visible) and see if your Headphone Jack works again.
If your Silent mode Switch is stuck try grabbing a toothpick or similar object and push it back up so your device signals you that the Silent Mode is turned off.
3. Turn Bluetooth off
If you are connected to a Bluetooth handset its most likely the audio will be routed through your Bluetooth device rather than your iPhone Headphones. To check if this is the case follow these steps:
1. Choose 'Settings' on your iPhone Homescreen 2. Go to 'Bluetooth' (3rd item in the list) 3. Tap on the on/off toggle (green) and turn it off 4. Check if your iPhone Headphones work again

Sometimes a simple error in the Software can cause the weirdest issues with your iPhone and so can it cause your iPhone Headphone Jack to stop working.
