Latest iPod update causing damage to headphones?

Users are complaining that the recently released operating-system update for their music players is causing a somewhat serious electrical problem for their music systems.

According to, users are complaining that iPod Classics whose firmware has recently been upgraded to Version 1.1 are sending residual electrical pulses through the headphone jack — as well as the iPod docking connection (on the bottom of every music player) — when the iPods are turned off. Those pulses, measured at 500mv of DC, could conceivably cause damage to any attached equipment. (link)
