Apple earphones are covered under an iPod's one year warranty. You can simply contact Apple and they will send you new ones for free, though you may have to send back the old ones.
You might want to check to see that everything is connecting. If the headphones or audio ports are damaged or malformed, the connection might not be completely made with the left or right channel. Also, if there are any crossed wires or short circuits in the headphone wires, the signal will be significantly weakened.
My last idea would be the balance on the computer, but that shouldn't effect the iPod playback. Anyway, sometimes when you try to adjust the volume very quickly while the processor is very busy, the computer's audio balance will drift to the left or right. You can reset it in System Preferences or download Balanced, a daemon that will check periodically to see if your balance is off center and reset it. http://www.whamb.com/balanced/
