Here are two of the possible explanations. Your dead earbud it blocking sound so it sounds really weird to be nearly completely deaf in that ear. You pull the earbud out and you get ambient noise back. Or it could be a pseudo effect that doesn’t have a reason other than you think it sounds weird to have one sided sound unless you take an earbud out.

Because after your headphone dies it then acts as an earplug more than a headphone deafening that side of your head. Where as, when it falls out you can then hear ambient sounds naturally instead of plugged up.
