As everything else plugged into the socket works, it doesn't seem likely it is a phone problem?

To me sounds more like a plug problem with your headphones. 3.5mm jacks and sockets vary as to how tight to the standard specs they are in size and in the position of the insulating/conducting bands. I have 3.5mm extension cables that work fine in one device and totally distort the sound when plugged into another. Wiggling the jack around in the socket sometimes helps - sometimes doesn't.

Do the original earphones that came with the phone work? These should have similar characteristics (if not quality) to the in-ear phones you have a problem with.
