Different headphones use different rubber moldings around the wires, especially near the plug. Some can be thicker and some have little plastic protrusions which prevent the cable from being fully plugged in. If the cable isn't fully inserted, you will sometimes receive no audio in the right ear or no audio at all. I have this problem with a pair of Sony earbuds on my S4 and my M8, and as a result, they're dedicated strictly to my laptop.
Try this...get a male to female aux cord and plug one end to the phone, then plug your headphones into that.
Also, you can try pulling back the plastic sheath around the plug and see if that helps.
