Is the 3.5mm audio jack compatible with headsets (32ohm / 600ohm) ? Since it is in the front, you expect it to be.

The audio has 4.7k resistors in series with the output so it is safe to connect low impedance speakers without the distortion.
There aren't any DC blocking capacitors so the output is available for DC level outputs if desired.
The main reason for problems with the Gen 1 audio was due to over-driving, not DC offset so the added resistors should be compatible with most systems.
