Okay, so I have these headphones, Sony MRD-Q33, I LOVE these headphones, they are great, but the left speaker won't work unless I position the jack that plugs into my ipod in a really weird way. I really want to fix these, suggestions?

there is a way to fix the problem, buy some real headphones, if your price range is in the $300 range i would suggest the Fanny FW 3003 BLK, it has a dual layer 50mm driver with a built in amp with 4 way active noise cancelation for 20dB and bass boost up to 6dB.
please check wiring first to find out if headphones broken or it is a connectivity problem. for that, if you connect with rca plugs - change right to left and vice versa. if still left headphone has no sound so the speaker is blown. hope it is only wiring problem.
The lit indication ("amp bars") proves that the aduio signal is getting through the unit's circuitry @ least to that point; lack of sound @ the spkr & headphones indicates the amplifier portion of the circuitry is either inoperative or disconnected from the load (i.e., either the speakers, or the headphones). A common cause of this type of problem cropping up unexpectedly is the headphone jack itself; in most products of this type, the audio path from the amplifier output to the speaker connection runs through the headphone jack, so the the speakers may be "turned off" when the headphones' plug is inserted into the jack. If the unit's owner uses headphones regularly, the most common problem to be found with the jack is loose solder connections to the printed circuit board's traces from the jacks' lead(s); in units with this problem whose owner's irregularly use the headphones, it's more common to find oxidization of the electrical contacts within the jack itself.
The only thing I can suggest you do is to swap the right and left inputs to the transmitter base over whilst wearing the headphones. If the fault transfers to the other channel, then you have a faulty interconnect lead that needs to be replaced. If it stays with the same channel, then the headphones or the base staion will be faulty. Best bet then is to return it to the place you purchased it from and request a replacement unit,.

Okay, cut and strip the cord. There should be two copper wires and (on
Sony headphones, at least) a red and a green strand. On a new 1/8"
jack, there should be three connections. The middle one is left, and is
where the green one goes. The short one on the side is right, and is
where the red one goes. The long bit is the common, and is where the
copper one goes. Before you solder, however, remember which strand is
which, because you have to sand or burn off the colored enamel. (Use a
fine grain paper, or use a standard lighter or stick match- anything
else might damage or melt the wire)
