Jump in headphone volume (iP5)

When I slowly ease my phones out of the jack I get to a point where my headphone volume increases noticible. Anyone else have this issue?

This isn't a bug or a problem, it is done by design. The iPhone is able to sense how many rings the headphone plug has. When you ease out the iPhone 4 ring headphones, you make the iPhone think it has a three ring set plugged in. It then switches the the different 3 ring volume. This feature was introduced in iOS 4. The 3 and 4 ring volumes are independent and are controlled differently.

One of the best features of the iPhone, allows me to set a volume for the TRS aux plug in my car and a different volume for the TRRS plug on my headphones. No more putting my headphones in and forgetting to turn it down and killing my ears.
