Default Noise cancelling earbud problem

I have the Sony noise cancelling earbuds MDR-NC31EM that came bundled with my Z2. Yesterday the right side went dead and when I jiggle the plug at the connection to the phone it comes on and off as if there is a broken wire inside.

The only problem is that they only do this with my Z2. I've tried to get them to do the same thing on 3 other devices and they work fine. I have also tried 3 other sets of headphones in my Z2, thinking it may be the phones headphone jack and they worked perfectly.

I'm confused as to what's going on. Any thoughts?

i think its a manufacturing issue, it sounds like some of the connector rings are loose
if its bugging you, you can contact sony customer support as all Xperia Devices come with a 2 year warrenty, your problem should be covered as it is a problem other people have had from brand new phones
