I would try using some black electrical tape to hold the wire in place.

If you know someone who has soldering equipment they might be able to repair the wire, otherwise it is probably best to replace the headphones.

How do I fix the sound on my Skullcandy Hesh?

Is there a crackling sound? If so, it's probably the cable, right by the plug. Soldering a new one on might be a bit tricky if it's a small cable. If it plays partially plugged in, then it's only one channel with a wiring problem, but you'll have to replace the plug, anyway. If you do, make sure you can tell which wire goes where. There should be three connections. One will be ground, which must be in the right place, or you won't get stereo.

My Skullcandy Hesh headphones have messed up sound with my ipod

I would say that if they work fine with other devices then your input jack on your ipod is bad. First I would plug other headphones into your Ipod and see if the problem persists. If not the case then I would plug in your headphones into a known working device and wiggle the wire at the connection point to see if you can duplicate the problem. If this does happen then you need to replace the connector (1/8th inch stereo male plug) on your headphones.

Right headphone break & malfunction (sound keeps breaking up)

What you have is a break in the cable, you can track it down by flexing the cable in different places till it acts up. Now once you have done that, you can determine the best course of action, I will come back to this shortly.
The distortion sounds to me like one of the earth wires inside the cable or at the plug end is off or broke. If it sounds spaced out or tinny then for certain you have an earth break.
OK bearing in mind the headset break, it now depends on where the cable break is. If it is near the plug end then you could cutt the offending section off and fit a new plug. The same in the middle (you would simply need an extension cable to make it longer). At the top near the headphones and you would need a new cable and have to go into the headphones to fit it, increasing the risk of further damage to the repair etc.
If you are good with a soldering iron you can do the first two options, however I wouldn't advise the third, due to the damage.
It all depends on how you feel about the style of the headphones, for you could replace the whole headsett and cable, but keep the high quality speakers. All you need do is find a cheap pair of headphones with the same size speakers as yours. Then all you need do is take both old and new speakers out and fit the old speakers in the new case. They won't look as good but they sound will be the same.
If you go for opition one or two and don't know how to put a new plug on just let me know.
If you go for the opition to remove the old speakers, you will need to remove the ear pads and any foam and then you should see access screws to get at the speakers (on both shells).

My skullcandy lowrider left headphone won't work on my iPod touch

Wiggle the plug once it has been plugged in and the radio is on. If it is intermittent then it's the male plug. This is a common failure. If you are able to solder then you can get replacement plugs at Radio Shack. If there is no change, and there will be if it's the plug, then the problem is in the wiring or the speaker. If it looks easy to disassemble then check it. All you will have is two thin wires and a strand of white nylon, (for strength). It will require a bit of soldering but it's relatively easy and worth the effort if you like the headphones. If the wires look ok then most likely it's a separation in the wiring. If that's the case save yourself the headache and toss them.

Wire broken near plug. Need disassemble a plug. How

You can buy a new plug and solder the wires to it. Leave a long enough piece of wire on the old plug to test to see which wire goes where. On the plug it should be tip+left, 2nd ring + right and the base or body is ground. Don't forget to put the shield that screws on the plug right way around on the cable before you solder.

Contact issue with skullcandy headset/headphones.

could be the battery? or it could be a wiring problem. If that is the case they will replace it for you.

Weird sound.

You will have to test the wiring from the plug to the speakers individually with a volt ohm meter. Wires this thickness break or go intermittent easily. Don't take them apart if they are still on warranty. Take them back to where you bought them and get replacements. Be sure to take the original packaging if you still have it and the sales receipt.

No sound in right ear

Check for a loose connection in the wire. Wiggle (carefully) the wire around both the headset where it sits on your heat. Also, check the other end (plug) to see if there are any shorts. If this simple "wiggle" test shows nothing, there may be a problem with the driver (speaker) in the right channel in your headphone.

Another thing to check and this should be obvious: make sure your balance on your stereo/receiver is set to be in the middle and not to the left.
