there are 3 wires.A ground,usually a braid on the outside under the plastic covering and 2 other wires, one for left and one for right.the size of plug is a 1/8 phone jack.the wires are very thin and you have to make sure to trim just enough plastic to solder it on.too much peeled plastic will create a short,and you have to be good at soldering to do it.

SOURCE: no sound coming out of right ear
Since these are just a month or so old, it is probably a warranty issue and should be able to resolved by the manufacturer - or in some cases by the store if they accept returns inside of the time you've own them.
If you no longer have the sales slip or are unable to provide documentation for warranty work, you might be able to make a repair your self if you can do some simple soldering. Locate to point on the cable where when disturbed, the sound cuts in and out. This is a likely point of a damaged or broken wire. Cut the cord just above the point of damage - closer to the ear buds. Use a meter or test light to determine which wire goes to which part of the old plug (you might have to cut the end of the cable a little shorter so that you are not trying to test through the broken wires). Buy a replacement plug that matches the original at a Radio Shack or similar type store and reconnect to match the original set up (as determined by the testing earlier) If it the ear bud cable is too short, you could purchase an extension cable that has a match plug on one end and jack on the other.
Of course you could always just cut the "bad part" of the cable out (an inch or two should probably do it) and reconnect and cover the wires in a method of your own choosing and be done, too.

It is likely that your right stereo channel has either been severed somehow or there is a severe short in one of the cables. What you can try to do to test this theory is first turn on your music. Then wiggle the cable at the very base of the right earbud. If nothing happens wiggle the cord right where it connects to the stereo jack. If still nothing happens run your fingers along the right earbud audio cable bending and twisting it. If at any point you hear music again then you likely have a short. If it is near the earbud then it is going to be difficult to fix since these earbudfs have a large gauard. If the short is at the stereo jack then the fix is simple. A standard 1/8" stereo jack can be purchased from any electronics or audio store. You can then fairly easily seperate teh old stereo jack and solder this new one in place. Search the internet for tutorials on how to do this if need be. Even if you do not get any kind of sound when wiggling it at the base of the jack this is the most likely culprit since this is where most of the stress on the headphones occur. Be wary though, if you do attempt a stereo jack repair you will void whatever kind of warranty your earbuds may have so check before you try. But, in teh end you may end up saving a 60-100 dollar set of earbuds for 5-8 dollars. Hope this helped.
