I personally only know of one headphone amplifier model that had a problem with a "power surge?" to the headphones, when the headphone amplifier was turned on (or maybe it was when the amp was turned off?).
My headphones stay plugged into my NFB-15.32 DAC/amp when I turn the NFB-15.32 on or off, so it's not a big deal leaving the headphones plugged in.
It's just that if one has to be really really "technical" about it, unplugging the headphones before turning the amp on or off is safest.
But I'm sure a lot of people just leave their headphones plugged in 24/7 and do not have a problem.
