    I have an iPhone 5. Just in the last 24 hours, this thing has started happening - I'm listening to a podcast, or on the phone, and the Headset Volume display pops up and the volume goes downdowndownMute - sometimes the headphone online control will turn it back up, sometimes only the volume control buttons on the iPhone will work, most often it just keeps turning itself down until the volume display says "Headphones Mute". If I do a Hard Reboot, it works again for 15-25 minutes, then goes off again.

    I don't know what to tell you because I don't think I've ever experienced this, however, I'll definitely try to see if I can replicate the problem and go from there.

    Have you tried a different head set or earbuds? Do they all do the same way? Are yours the earphones that came with your device? Have you tried a hard reset? Hold the top power/sleep button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release.

    It sounds like a bad headset to me. Are you using wired or Bluetooth?

    It sounds like your headset broke.
