iPod Mini Suddenly Has Distorted Sound!

When I last used my iPod yesterday it was fine, but this morning I turned it on and the music was all distorted. The vocals sound distant, the volume is lower, and the drums can barely be heard. I plugged the iPod earphones into my iBook and they're working fine. I also reset the iPod, but that didn't fix anything. I have the latest iPod updater. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions?

On the iPod, are Sound Check and EQ (equaliser) off? If they are but you're still having weird sound issues, then maybe restore the firmware using that latest iPod Software Updater. You'll lose everything on the iPod though, but it should be relatively easily re-synced.
Some things are better mad...
