There are on-line podcasts like Slow Chinese that cater to several levels from beginner to advanced, and provide the text as well as the audio to listen to. That, or, if you're committed, something like ChinesePod (which isn't free), may be a good place to start.
If your level of written Chinese is fairly advanced, you could try finding the audio book (有声书) for books you've read or are reading to listen to. There are thousands of audio books in Mandarin. Short stories or articles that you can play a few times may be best at first, understanding increases with repetition. Many Chinese textbooks come with sets of CDs or mp3 files to download, listen and listen again.
Many Chinese TV programs have subtitles in simplified characters. Find easy ones with vocabulary you already know to begin with. As with audio-books, repetition will definitely increase your understanding,
Don't get discouraged. Repeated and frequent listening is the key, and there are many resources you could use. Even passive listening in the background can help a lot.
I would try to keep the characters you already know firmly associated with their pronunciation, it would a crime to lose the characters in your memory while you learn pronunciation. Try to pronounce them yourself, read aloud, it will eventually sink in.
If you want a good site with many excellent articles, links to resources, and tips, try Olle Linge's Hacking Chinese , it'll keep you busy for a very long time.
