When iPhone gets stuck in headphones mode, you cannot hear any of the keyboard clicks or text message alert tone. No audio or sound works through the normal speakers output. The iPhone Speakers stop working suddenly. What weird is that nothing seems wrong when you plug the headphones in. What causes this is that iPhone improperly acts as if the headphones are still plugged in. Sometimes this happens because of the headphones jack being dirty, wet, or something lodged in it.

One of the obvious symptoms to judge whether your iPhone or iPad got stuck in headphones mode is that you can see "headphones" when you turn the ringer volume up/down. Like the icon blow:
