Does the jack snap in place like before? I'm asking because sometimes, if you carry the iPod in your pocket, lint can find its way into the earphone jack and eventually prevent the plug to go all the way in. If this is your case, use a sharp tool and try (VERY carefully) removing what could be in the hole. I had this issue and used a paper clip to successfully restore my earphone connection.

Lastly, and this is just for good measure, you should restore your iPod using iTunes. This will erase absolutely everything on it and ensure that you are in fact experiencing a hardware problem (which is likely the case but it is always best to check and there is no harm in restoring your iPod). You can also try looking down into the headphone jack and seeing if there is any type of discoloration as the connector might be dirty (aside from it possibly being clogged with lint/debris).

I have exactly the same problem... I've used the same earphone for 6 years when I am still using the retro iPod Mini and there is no problem at all.. when I bought iPod Touch the earphone I am using now is the 3rd earphone broken on the left speaker(including my 6 year old earphone T_T).. I bought an iPod Nano recently and it seems to have the same problem... what's with the new generation iPods? :S
