sounds like the typical ipod and ipod touch common situation. It seems to be the dreaded headphone jack on the bottom or top of the device has gone belly up. You can either take it to your local apple store or look online and search your problem and see if anyone else has the same issues you have and see what can be done.You can send it to ipodsquad.com to get repairs or check your local apple store.
broken earphones are usually not repairable due to its miniature construction. i am sorry to say it's more likely you need to buy a new one. if you are really a person that loves music so much and pays attention to sound details, i suggest you buying a good quality earphones like Sennheiser. Though this has a trade off when it comes to price. I found this on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAAZ0vLcfGA
Have you checked the headphones with another player to ensure that it is the headphones and not the iPod's headphone jack? If not I would greatly recommend doing so. If it is headphone jack on the iPod, this can be replaced rather simply. You can go to:

On the same site you can view a free guide on how to remove the damaged part(s) but also I posted a direct URL below.

Does your iPod come on? If not, your battery could be bad.
If you can see the music playing, but cannot hear anything, you could have a bad earphone jack or a bad circuit board.
You can tell if it is the battery the iPod will not come on at all unless it is attached to the computer or to a power outlet.
If you can move the earphone jack around while playing music and hear something, then it is the headphone jack. If you move the jack around and hear nothing, then I would suspect the circuit board.
If you have a device that can play your music out of the USB port on the iPod, you can make sure that it is the circuit board that way. When the circuit board is bad, music will not play out of the headphone jack or the USB port. Hope that helps.
First off - Is there any warranty warranty left? Otherwise what most likely happened is the headphone jack connector broke a terminal. If it is a model with a screen, the headphone jack is a separate piece off the motherboard. It's a cheap part off of ebay, just find someone with nimble hands to reconnect the ribbon cable inside.
