I made a simple audio mixer circuit with its output going to headphones. Right now I'm only testing with a single audio signal at the input, which is music from a smartphone. I hear a pop sound after I apply power (2 x AA) to the circuit, unless power has already been applied for at least approximately five seconds. Even if I leave power applied for a minute, and then I disconnect and reconnect power, there is a pop sound. What about this circuit would take five seconds to stabilize? VCC stabilized nearly instantly when I measured on the scope.
I'm using a dual op amp IC, the LM4808 (http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/lm4808.pdf).
There are four 470 uF decoupling caps in parallel at the output (for a desired cutoff), and a 1k resistor to Ground that I included as a discharge resistor, but it doesn't seem to have any effect.
