One of the popular components of IC for headphone amplifier is the LM4880. LM4880 is one of the manufacturer by National Semiconductor IC made for a series of dual HiFi audio amplifier IC.
The voltage needed to run IC LM4880 is between 2,7VDC up to 5VDC. R1 and R2 from the circuit that serves as a feedback. Meanwhile, C4 and C5 is a decoupling capacitors so that the DC voltage is not entered. C3 in the circuit will reduce the noise of the input sensitivity.
HiFi Headphone Amplifier Circuit Based LM4880 has distortion rate 0.1% when the circuit was at work. Believe me, this amplifier circuit will produce high-quality audio with a minimum components.
The headphone amplifier can generate 250mW output power in standard headphones. A few notes for you when it will assemble the headphone amplifier circuit, use a good quality PCB, and use the power supply that is regulated as well as using the IC regulator 7805. Or it would be better if this circuit works using the battery.
