Sounds like u have a bad wire, Its fixable depending on where the break is. If its near the plug end, u can head to ur nearest radio shack and get a replacement, however, if the break is in the leading headphone, though still fixable but requires a bit more tech savy. As long as u can operate a pair of wire cutters and a soldering iron, youll be good to go

It does sound as if the wire has been broken. I would suggest contacting the manufacturer to see if your product's damaged jack is covered under their warranty. They do have a limited warranty that covers defects in manufacturing and if this damage is something that just happened out of the blue and not from any other sort of activity that may have caused the issue, then you should be covered.

Well the good news is, it's not your ipod.. It's the wiring inside of the headphones. I suggest that you either return them for a new pair, or buy a new pair.

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).

Right earplug is shorted out. sound goes in and out. how do i fix it?

The right ear plug internal wire is cut off due to wear and tear. This is common problem with earplug especially if
if you pull by the wire of your earplugs. The solution is to
cut open the wirings of your right earplug and reconnect,
resolder it, and tape the bare wires, to restore the sound. However, it will be unsighty. So, the best thing
to do is to buy another.

All wires that go into my Mp3 have to be bended at certain angles in order to work even though the wires aren't broken.

Mp3 players are sensitive - try a different set of headphones first. Depending on the kind of mp3 player you have, this issue may not be fixable - you will just have to find the right spot and hold very still.

Bose in-ear headphones sounds cuts in and out

Well, here's a temporary fix until you guys can get new ones. Pull the plastic stopper about halfway up the phones. Then loop the bottom of the entire headphones through the circle that the plastic stoppers create. When you have a tiny loop, pull the upper stopper down and tighten it. People said that they needed to angle the cable in a certain way, right? Well, this fixed mine for now. Just keep it in that position until you can get a replacement or they come up with a permanent fix.
