Make sure the connector is neither dirty nor broken. And that pins on it are not bent, nor dirty, either on the Klipsch side, and on the side of the cable or connector on the iPod.
The loud static and humming, though, suggest an electronics problem (if not a disconnected ground owing to dirty or bent pins or broken connector).
How old is the Klipsch device in question?
