Ever cut the connector off of a pair of them and try to wire on a new one? The point, that you obviously missed, wasn't that headphones are cheap, it's that there's no reason to do what Tim was suggesting and that you can wire up to the tip and ring and have it work with both stereo and mono headphones.

So you're saying that if I want to use a pair of stereo headphones I
have around here I should cut the connector off of it and wire it up to
a mono plug? Yeah... I'll get right on that.

There is no reason to wire the output of the 2822 to both the tip and
the ring terminals. If you have a stereo headset then wire both headset
leads to tip of the plug and only wire up the tip lead on the socket.
Then if someone inadvertently plugs in a mono plug you won't short the
output of the 2822 to ground.
I agree that the large charging current going into the 470uf cap could
stress the 2822, perhaps only causing a failure after a number of
on/off cycles. That's something that would be hard to diagnose!
I have modified my schematic to show using a 47uf cap being fed with a
1 amp fuse from the 2822. If I ever get a chance to actually finish up
my ubitx it will be interesting to see if the 1 amp fuse is sufficient.

And subsequent replies have suggested this may not be sufficient.
Some seem to fry when plugging something into the headphone jack even
if there is no short to ground involved. Or when powering up the rig.
Our best guess now is that there are significant currents involved
when that 470uF cap suddenly has to charge up to Vcc/2 And that some
clone TDA2822's may be weaker than mainline manufacturers.
