>>> If I'm driving a pair of cheap headphones from a standard op-amp (I've got a TL072, a MC1458 or a LF353 available - you don't get much more 'bog standard' than that lot) is there anything special I need to do?
>> I use NJM4556AD - it can provide 70mA to the output. I try to rig it as a follower stage only although one can use some gain, in which case I add some roll off. I add a resistor in series with the load just to protect it from shorts etc. Working fine in 1000s of units out there.
> Ok, that sounds reasonable. So I could add a '4556 wired as a voltage follower to the output of the amp I've got presently and buffer it. How much resistance do you use, Veronica? Would a couple of hundred ohms do it, or do I need more?

> JPs schematic is similar inasmuch as it buffers the op-amp output (with a push-pull stage) and adds resistance in series.
