It was fine until 13.10.

I've tested with pavucontrol, alsamixer.

When I was trying to get 0 ~ 20% volume level, It always get muted.

My laptop is DELL Inspiron 1501.

I have this very same problem. But I am on a Desktop and the issue only happens with my USB Headphone. So far I have not been able to fix it, and I have tried a lot. –  user301130 Jul 7 at 5:24
