Thanks for the reply — that's probably a good place to start; I'd been looking for a software conflict instead.

I plugged the headphones into my Windows 7 machine this afternoon and was able to reproduce the problem after about 10 minutes of watching Windows Media Center.

I popped off the volume buttons on the inline controller and sprayed some electrical contact cleaner in there; the little rubber contact in the down volume button was missing so it wouldn't click (my son didn't bother to tell me that — I suspect I vacuumed it up by accident one day), so I trimmed a piece of rubber band to size and jammed it in there as a temporary fix. Fingers crossed…
