    My Ashdown MiBass 2.0 has a 1/4 inch female headphone jack [called phones in Brit speak]
    My headphones are 1/8 in stereo jack and a 1/4 in stereo adaptor is included. When you plug in the headphones using the adaptor it's supposed to cut the speaker and push the program through the headphones. The 1/4 in stereo did nothing. The 1/4 mono adaptor I figured would solve the problem allowed faint [very small volume] program to come through headphones and the speakers would not be cut out. Any thoughts to solve this seemingly simple function gone bad? I always thought plugging headphones into an amp for practice was second nature. Apparently not so. do I need a set of mono headphones?

    The amp's manual says to use a standard stereo headphone plug. Mono won't solve the problem.

    First thing I would look for is bent parts inside the jack assembly that aren't making proper contact with the plug.

    I looked up the manual. It says the phones output is stereo. A 1/4 to 1/8 stereo adapter plugged into the amp with your phones plugged into the adapter should work perfectly. If not there’s something else wrong.
