When you are using the Spotify app on your iPhone there are several settings that you can adjust which will affect your experience when listening to music. One of these settings is specifically concerned with whether or not you are using headphones. When you have headphones connected to your iPhone, Spotify can play a feedback sound when you press one of the music controls.
