[PLUG] Headphone plug broken on my Acer box running Ubuntu

I have an Acer 6930 running Ubuntu 8.10 . Sometime back my headphone plug
broke inside the jack, and I am having a hard time getting it out. The
hardware guy out here says he might have to open the motherboard, and I am a
bit apprehensive about doing that.
Here are some options I think I have (I need some advise on which of them
might be best on a Linux system)
1. Bluetooth headphones
How easy are those to configure on Linux, are there any brands that
work/don't work? Unfortunately I cannot try them before buying them.
2. USB adapter
Will a USB-headphone jack type adapter work on a Linux system?
3. USB Headphones
Do these work out of the box on Ubuntu? Are there any preferred brands?
Which of these options would you suggest?
Thanks & Regards
