The usual cause for that is that the headphone jack is loose or the connectors are loose inside the unit and therefore not keeping complete contact with the headphone piece. It can be repaired but would probably be cheaper to get a new MP3 if that is the sansa one.

Id say you should go see a doctor. But for now id say that you should do your best to not listen to it for a while as it can affect hearing. try to use full on speakers if you can. On you tube there are a few Sub-Woofer sound tests you can do. Try playing one (low volume) and repeat. (not a song one)

It is very likely that the problem is in your MP3 player and not your ear phones. If it is still under guarentee, then take it back to where you bought it. If not it may be that the earphone jack plug is faulty? It is a trade off between the cost of repair against the cost of a new one. These things are often glued together so opening it could break it anyway - sorry
I don't know if you used new earphones but if you did I would try to clean the inside of the mp3 player then reconnect youre earphone. If you still have the problem return to the store, then the hardware in the mp3 itself is wrong.
The problem is in the ear-phones, not the player.
Return the phones via warantee if available.
You should be able to wiggle the cord at various places along the cord to find out where the short is. (One of my sansa's phones had a short close to the plug itself.) If you know how to perform basic wire splicing/sodering, and melt a piece of shrink tubing (from Radio Shack) over the splice, you can fix this yourself. The sansa phones I have are real good, and worth saving, however don't be afraid to buy some really good ear-phones (over $50) if you cant fix the cord.
