A way to make use the audio output jack, no "hi-fi" though!

1. open vlc media player
2. roll up the mouse for volume to 200%, I think this the maximum
3. the audio jack output is audible on ur ear-phone

Note. Don't know any harm to the chip though;
2. no "hi-fi" though, ha ha!
3. use an amplifier is the suggested way.

Pis put out a "line level" signal on the 3.5mm audio jack. I've found that to be adequate for headphones. For anything bigger, I use self-powered speakers and don't have any issues.

If you want better sound quality, get one of the many audio HATs that are out there.
