Ten Tec deals with this problem by inserting a 100 ohm resister in both
left and right 'channels' of the audio jack. This does two things. It
reduces the volume to the headphones to make a more comfortable level. It
also makes the jack stereo/mono compatible. I installed a stereo jack in my
early Paragon I with these resistors when I upgraded the mono jack. Later
Paragons come with this as standard.

How about the Omni's?

For what it's worth,
