RE: Shock from IC's?

You disconnected the IC from the source, but it was still connected to the headphone amp? There shouldn't be any voltage or current on the input of the amp. I would have it checked out if I were you. It probably has input coupling caps (to block any DC on the input). If you have a multimeter (DMM), measure the DC and AC voltage from the center to the barrel of the IC (or input jack).
