Default how can i improve this headphone amp

I have a Rolls HA43 headphone amp which is simple and cheap. Looking inside, it would seem simple to improve a few components/opamps. Has anyone got any tips on what to swap out? I include a link to the circuit diagram

...Thanks for any help

Swap the opamps for NE5532. There isn't really much past that. Better opamps are not worthwhile in this circuit. Maybe swap the 10uF input capacitors for some better capacitors, polyester ones if you can get them.

Ewwww. Variable gain by feedback through a pot? No bypass caps? Not sure much can be done with this circuit.
Listen to the music through the stereo, not the stereo through the music.
