    Sounds like a bad ground or something of the like.

    I had to return my Apple In-Ear headphones (the $79 ones) for a replacement because the right side one would zap my inner ear lobe'ish area. I think it was a bad ground and was discharging from the chrome ring or something. Replacement pair is fine so far, haha...

    Genius appointment for you. It's best to let them take a look or in this case, get zapped.
