iPod touch headphones only playing through one ear

My iPod touch is only playing sound through one ear. Tried different sets of headphones. Is there something else I can try, or time to lay the old dear to rest? I imagine it wouldn't be cheap to fix... or would it?

Have you tried cleaning the socket?

Rubbing alcohol on a cotton bud. No change :(

It could be that it's just one of the little contacts that's worn/bent....

If you wriggle the plug, or don't insert it all the way, do you get anything?

Places online advertising replacement sockets for £35 fitted or if feeling adventurous can get the parts for c£5 and try yourself, numerous YouTube videos showing how.
Line out dock and headphone amplifier would be my preferred solution but does add more stuff to carry.
