- Try cleaning out/blowing out the headphone jack. Try inserting/removing the plug a dozen times or so.
Try the following to rule out a software problem
- Reset the iPod. Nothing will be lost
Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
- Reset all settings
Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
- Restore from backup
- Restore to factory settings/new iPod.
- Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store. Seems you have a bad headphone jack.
Apple will exchange your iPod for a refurbished one for this price. They do not fix yours.
A third-party place like the following will replace the jack for less. Google for more.
Replace the jack yourself

Actually, I reset the iPod to the factory settings and the headphones work perfectly fine..
The problem happens when I restore it from an iCloud backup and put all my data on it, all of a sudden they don't work again..any suggestions?

I am currently an owner of an Ipod Touch 4th generation. I see you are having problems with your Ipod Touch, so I will try to find a solution to your problem.
- Don't backup from Icloud. Simply go to the App store on the Ipod, and search all the App's that you had, and re-download them
- Do a Hard Reset on the Ipod: Hold down the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for at least 10 sec. or until Apple logo appears
- Try bringing it to an Apple store near you to get it checked out
Hope that helps!
If none of the above solutions work, can you please respond back ASAP as I will try to find another solution to your problem.
