Why is sound only coming from one ear, and really faint and scratchy?

Just bought new AudioTechnica ATH-M40fs studio headphones. They had a big connector so in order to use on my computer I had to buy a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter.

I have tried fiddling with the audo settings on my computer (changing to desktop spears, 5.1 surround, headphones, etc) and nothing is working.

The audio is really faint and only coming from my left ear (the side of the headphones with the cord). The audio that I can hear is scratchy and bad quality.

These are really expensive headphones.
