Default Notification sounds on silent?

So perhaps this is a feature working as intended, but I'll be damned if it isn't super annoying. Basically, even if my phone is on silent or vibrate, the minute I plug in a headset, it'll start playing notification sounds through the headset. I can understand this possibly being useful if my phone was in a loud mode. But when I'm listening to music in my car or something and the phone is on vibrate, it'll dim the music and play a notification sound. If it's on silent, it'll dim the music but not make a notification sound. Hopefully that was easy enough to understand. Basically I need it to stop adjusting the volume of the music when I receive a notification. Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm rooted stock and would prefer not to have to install a custom rom.

Thanks for any help guys

I can't believe there's no way to fix this, I've searched for a while and it seems to be a somewhat common problem. I was also trying to stay with stock ROM but I may flash CM if it fixes this. Could anyone else confirm?
