I had the same problem a couple of weeks ago. My iPod and my sony earbuds had lasted me for years, but in a two-day period, both my sonys and my backup pair of knock-offs stopped functioning properly. I looked around online, and found that it's caused by the wiring and inner components in the left earbud getting worn out because it's the one that carries the bass as well as the melody. You really have only two options: 1) you can get instructions on how to take apart the earbud and possibly find the broken part, but most likely not be able to fix it, or 2) you can just get one more pair of headphones. Nothing expensive, but not too cheap—I've found that around the 14 dollar range seems to last a long time. Hope this helped.

I thought it was the earbuds too. So I bought another set and when that didn't work I assumed it was the Ipod itself. So, I bought a new one. The new Ipod has the exact same issue, even with the brand new earbuds. That's what is super weird to me.

Trust me, it's not a problem with the shuffle. I agree, this is weird! Let me ask, what earbuds are you using?
