I have the MacBook Pro & Retina(2012s) running on Mavericks, both seem to be exhibiting a delay when headphone/speaker is connected to the Audio Jack. I've read the thread on the apple forums and it seems this is a normal event, but I find it very intruding especially when I switch sources from headphones to speakers at outdoors.
But, while using bootcamp this delay doesn't seem to occur and I guess all these are managed at kernel/OS level.
The reason stated at the forums was quite inadequate, because the smartphones today have similar jacks (Audio In/Out) and the switching happens quite fast.
Would like to know if it was possible to tweak this event.
