XBox Series Controller Headphone Port exhibits considerable play.

I can wiggle a headset jack and subsequently lose audio output on one side. Can I bend the brass contacts and reduce the amount of play resulting from typical wear and tear?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

IF you can wiggle the whole jack then that means that the internal structure of the port could be damaged. If thats the case, then the issue isn't with the connection on the outside, but with the solder joints connecting the 3.5mm jack to the board on the controller.

You can try following the teardowns on the site and carefully inspecting the port once its apart. If you see any legs of the port are not connected then you can try resoldering it.
