I read this one other time, and another symptom was that the headset icon displayed, even though the headset wasn't plugged in. Did you happen to notice that or not?
If it were me, I would
1.) Suspect 3rd party apps.
2.) Hard reset.
3.) Hardware issues: return it.

Any chance you have your ringer muted at the same time you're having this problem? For some reason my Droid had the Earpiece volume linked to the ringer volume. When I would try to turn up the volume of the ear piece in-call it would appear that it turned up but the sound would not go up at all.

I know this sounds like a stupid suggestion.... but, I always go for the most obvious solution first. Sorry, if this insults you...
but, are you aware that the while on a call the volume rocker increases / decreases the headset volume?
You stated that they can hear you and you have trouble hearing them, But, this only happens sometimes. The volume setting for calls can be set to a default volume or to "last call" volume. Perhaps your default is good but every once in a while your actually pressing the volume rocker with your thumb while holding the phone on a call.
I've noticed my thumb goes right where the down volume buttom is if I'm holding the phone with the right hand. Maybe you have the default set OK, but, every once in a while due to holding the phone with your thumb on the volume down switch your actually just turning it down.
While the phone is pressed to your head and the volume is being turned down by accident you can't see the screen which is diplaying the fact that volume is being turned down - therefore, you assume it's a malfuction. Try adjusting how you hold the phone.
Sorry, if that seemed like I was talking down to you. "why is my volume low?" "uh, you turned it down." I just find that 9 times out of 10, the problems I have are user error.

Mine does this too and I have figured out what causes it. first I should say that it can be fixed with a reboot. if I have anything plugged into the headphone jack and have anything playing audio phone call or music, I have to pause it before removing the headphone plug. Otherwise, the earpiece speaker will not work.. if I pause the music then remove it, the speaker will work fine.If I put call on speaker phone then unplug the headphone jack, its fine..very strange and I can replicate the issue every time... hmmm, wonder if I am the only one with this issue...Droid---[ROM] Bugless Beast V1.0, Nextheme, Bekit 800mhz kernel!

I'd just like to let you know that I am having exactly the same issue as the original poster. I haven't really looked too much into why but I have tried ending apps one by one before trying again to see if I can find the cause. Sometimes I'll go days without it happening, other times it will happed regularly. It's really frustrating because when someone calls me, it's fine.
9 times out of 10, if I use an app to 'end all' of my apps it will work again.

Sorry I can't post urls yet but there is this application you can run when your audio gets messed up. Doesn't matter what causes the audio to get goofy this application will fix it.

I am always listening to my MP3's or Pandora through a radio in my office or my car via a cable plugged into an AUX port. I almost never manually pause my music when I need to move to a different location and unplug the phone. I will start pausing before I unplug to see if my problem goes away.
Thanks for your post.
