    try someone elses headphones
    if you have the same problem, there is a good chance it is the headphone jack on your ipod causing the problem

    well then there is still a possibilty that it is a temporary problem
    i thought my right headphone was blown for a while because it would make the horrible blown speaker clicking sound when i played music too loud and then it just got better

    did something happen that maybe could have caused it?

    hmm id say thats most likely it but unless you pulled it hard enough to actually seperate the wires inside the cord, that shouldnt have done it

    EDIT: I just reread your first post
    spinning the plug in the headphone jack wouldnt help if the wires were broken farther down
    if you are any good at soldering, you could try cutting off the plug and soldering a new one on (not pretty, but much cheaper than new headphones)
