I have headphones that have a switch between stereo and mono. When updating in early February, I noticed that when on stereo mode, the headphones would only play out of the left earpiece, with nothing out of the right. When I switched it to mono, I got most of the sound, but not all of it on some songs.
I thought my headphones might be broken, so I tried it on my car stereo... and the same thing happened. I've update three or four times throughout February and March, but it still hasn't gone away.
This task depends upon

Have you tried resetting your settings?

Sounds like it might be a hardware issue... have you tried it with the original firmware?

Yeah, it seems to be a hardware issue.... time to take it back to the store...
