Impossible to adjust low volume

Description of problem:
I cannot low the sound volume like I would want because the sound is automatically muted below a certain threshold.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Rhythmbox for instance
2. Try to low the global sound volume with the gnome applet
3. Sound is muted whilst it may be low a little bit more
With some cheap headphones (like Ipod headphones), I have the choice between: no sound and a loud sound.
The sound volume in Rhythmbox and Totem themselves (and perhaps in others applications) is very low. If I click on the sound widget, the sound is muted. If I want sound, I have to raise the volume but keeping it below 1%.
With pavucontrol, I can adjust the sound level of an application but when I close the window, the sound is often muted automatically.
And finally, the gnome applet sound (the speaker) looks very often muted when I move some windows or launch applications.
