Plug in the headphones after the click?
Pretty sure this is also a safety feature
The click is from the mute relay, which closes upon warm-up. I agree that it's annoyingly loud. I've always done as @dubharmonic suggests and plugged in headphones/iems after the relay has closed. Been doing this for years with no ill-effects.
Thanks for the advice! That's also what I've been doing. I didn't know if that's usual, and the occasional times when I forgot to do this, my ears weren't too happy
