It's generally OK to send a headphone output to a line-level input. You may need to adjust the headphone volume to a suitable level to get a clear low noise but un-distorted signal.

A headphone output is generally much too high for a microphone input. It probably won't damage it, but the sound will be too loud and distorted.

  • Plus the wire from the amp to the laptop is not balanced (shielded) and you'll hear extra noise on the line.
