Using SSM2518 to drive headphones

Is it possible to drive headphones using a Class D amplifier.

I have a client wanting to use the SSM2518 as a headphone amplifier. They are needing 1 - 3 Watts of power for the headphones.


Searching for any information on this application brought up this article from EDN which uses the phase difference between the output signals to allow connecting to a standard pair of headphones.


Looking through the data for the SSM2518  there is no mention of this so I am looking for advice if this idea would work ?



Thanks John
