I'm getting the same problem too, however like johnbash612 I have only noticed this issue after doing the hardware update, although that kind of suggests that it is a software issue as we've seen from this forum I'm not entirely sure whether the software can take 100% of the blame but think it does take part in producing this issue. Also something I saw was that this maybe affected by the touch cover, however from my personal experience the touch cover does not affect this (apart from the muting issue which I don't think is related). Anyways I'm interested to see where else this situation goes, hopefully away with the next Tuesday cycle.

Yikes I thought I could handle this, and although I have gotten used to it, if the update tomorrow doesn't fix the issue I'm going to exchange my surface. I recently got into listening to radio stations, and it sucks to have the volume skyrocket into your earhole when wearing headphones, or totally ruins the experience when it goes silent. blah. I'm assuming no one has found a fix since they bought theirs?

You have a defective Surface, return it for a replacement.
My local Microsoft store (where I purchased the Surface) told me that the unit is defective and replaced it for me, even though it was past the return date.
I've been reading however, that Microsoft recently (around Feb 13 2013) released a patch that might fix this issue, so you may want to try that first.

So apparently the new update finally fixes this issue, can you guys that have had the issue confirm this to be true? I sent in my surface RT just this last Thursday, I knew I should have waited for the March update but I was getting ticked off and had enough of it, I mean it seems like a common issue and I gave them four chances of updates to fix it, but a fifth chance wouldn't have hurt. I guess I would take my old surface RT back at this point, but the brand new surface wouldn't be a bad break either :) Anyways, let me know if anyone is still having the issue or if its simply been fixed for you.
EDIT: I am talking about the most current (March) firmware update, not the February one, which did nothing for me.

I am also glad to report that this update finally fixed the issue for me. I have tried over and over and can no longer cause it to happen. With the previous update, it indeed still happened. Pretty happy about this one, I've gotta say. Also, I used to notice that sometimes after my Surface had been charging for a while, the wifi would be limited when I tried to use it. I have noticed that seems to have been fixed as well.

Well, I just tried this well over 20 times but can't reproduce this behaviour.
I have installed the March 12 update yesterday, so maybe it was solved by that update but have to say that I also never noticed the mentioned behaviour before.
