ok i have a logitech headset, dont know which version, and the left side doesnt work. it started deterioating over time and i thought it was just some little glitch. but then it stopped working. i adjusted the wires and once in awhile the left side would work. but after some time, no matter what i do, it still doesnt work. probably the only problem i see is that theres one section where the cord just spiralled around itself and in the middle of that spiral, there is small slit of exposed wires. but i dont know.
Sounds like your own self diagnosis has determined it is bad and needs replaced.
I have a Plantronics headset that is doing similar in that I have to wiggle volume adjust wheel inline and left side comes back.
Same thing happened to me with 2 sets of Plantronics headphones and 2 sets of Logitech headphones (one of them did it within 2 days of buying them). I'm using microsoft headphones now, they're working great. If you still have a warranty on them, take advantage of that, if not go buy yourself a new pair.

That's just something that happens with all headphones/headsets after a matter of time. Thankfully, my Logitech gaming headset is still working pretty well on both sides. =p
If it really has failed beyond repair, take it up with Logitech if it's still under warranty. Otherwise, it's probably time to invest in a new headset.
I've had a wire break in two headsets already, theoretically it is repairable, but since it is a Logitech the wires are probably incredibly thin and horribly connected (no wonder it didn't last) by Chinese infants as they were in my old Logitech headset, so they all detach as soon as you open the thing up. It was hopeless. The Speedlink headset that broke was slightly better made, so I managed to fix it, but replacing the cable with a stronger one was quite a hassle and didn't help long until it broke somewhere else...
I certainly hope Koss makes their headphones sturdier.

Koss has always been hit-or-miss in my experience. I've owned 4 pairs total. They sound great and deliver some solid low frequencies, and two of them lasted over 2 years (one I'm still using today), but the other two stopped working after a matter of months.
