When I plug in headphones it'll detect something is 'plugged in' and mute the onboard audio, but won't actually play any audio to the headphones until I tilt the audio jack and there's a subtle pop of the solder joint or whatever.
I'm debating with myself whether to fix the issue on my own with my soldering equipment, or have LENOVO fix it.

Another option is an external USB audio card that will provide better quality and possible higher audio level or a wireless Bluetooth headphones. I use Sony MDR-XB950B1 and the quality is acceptable, not in par with high-end headpones of course but you couldn't drive them by the crappy audio output anyway
Then take the X1C4 apart, shouldn't be that difficult.
Then liberally "flux" the audio contacts area, heat each contact up for a few seconds with your soldering iron, and Bob should be your uncle.
