I want to leave my headphones permanently plugged in, but I have some rather strong background static for some reason. I am just wondering: is playing that static ultimately damaging to the speakers, or can they handle it?

I'm not asking anybody to take the approach of removing the static. It's mostly a self-inflicted problem:
I'm running 64-bit Karmic with OSS4 and heavy excising of anything that seems related to Oulseaudio and ALSA.
