I would take your device back. It sounds like it may be shorting something out in your earbuds. It would be too strange for this to happen with two separate sets of earbuds and both in the same ear. I would also pick up a pair of earbud covers when you get your next set of Apple earbuds. Don't get the garbage foam or silicone kind that fall off immediately. Get some the the type that encapsulate your entire earbud. I work for a company called Brepps that makes a quality product and they are extremely inexpensive. The one thing most people don't realize is that moisture and dust can get into your speaker and easily damage it. These covers will repel most things including sweat, so they will keep your earbuds more functional for a longer period of time. You can find them at www.brepps.com.iphone
Given how junky the Apple earbuds are, I'm not sure it's so strange that two would fail, even on the same site. The short-out theory seems stranger to me because I find it hard to believe that there's enough energy in an iPod battery to do that. Nice looking product, BTW.Home Built, Windows 7
The shorting out theory is a little too far-fetched. Apple earbuds aren't exactly the highest quality to begin with, and it could simply be a coincidence that the same side failed on both sets of earbuds.
I'd suggest a completely different set of earbuds.
