I think the headphone outputs on my scarlett 18i8 are dead?

I think the headphone outputs on my scarlett 18i8 are dead?

I just got some sweet new Sennheiser headphones the other day, plugged them in and got nothing. Then spent the next day, today, pulling my hair out trying to figure this out, uninstalling the drivers, various routing in Scarlett Mixcontrol and still nothing. Both headphone ports.

Though the days before, I was using some old Beats By Dre. On the last couple days of their use, I noticed that I would only have audio of the connector to the 1/4 adapter was turned a certain angle, or it would cut off. The things were getting crappy anyways, one side stopped producing audio all together, tried on multiple devices. So i figured they were trashed.

But now I have no audio through the interface with these brand new headphones. Are the headphone ports really dead, both of them? How can I diagnose this better?
