There is a possibility that the plug is not going all the way in, in the Ipod. Have you tried using other headphones on Ipod? Sometimes the plug can become unscrewed and and doesnt fit properly. It will work on some receptacles and not in others, due to differences in tolerances.

One side of my headphones aren't working how can I fix this?

The exact same thing happened to me, and I was using the same brand of headphones. :/ At first I thought it was just a **** brand, when my left headphone stopped working and sound would only reach it if I adjusted the base of the headphones - the bit that connects them to the iPod - a tiny fraction. I had to keep adjusting it to get it to work.
But it turned out that this is a problem that occurs in all brands of headphones. I went from Skull Candy to Sennheiser to Apple to Skull Candy again to Bose and no matter what brand it is, it will happen eventually. I don't think there is a solution, except to keep buying new ones and try taking them out of the iPod more gently and less frequently.
