The value would depend on how big you are prepared to go with the other electrolytics. The basic idea is that the input LF rolloff, set by the cap and R1, is higher in frequency (by a factor of 2-5?) than the output rolloff, set by C4 and your headphone resistance. Also the cathode decouplers. You also want the White follower to work properly, so the input cap should be less than C2.

The product of the resistance and capacitance (R×C) is the time constant (τ); it is inversely proportional to the cutoff frequency fc, that is, where fc is in hertz, τ is in seconds, R is in ohms, and C is in farads.
The natural frequency is proportional to 1/(RC) which is radians/second. You need a factor of 2 pi to get this in units of Hertz. In other words, fc = 1/(2 pi RC).

Using 220nF
fc= 1/(2 pi X 1000000 ohms X 0.00000022 farads) = 1/1.38 = 0.72Hz

There is something I don't like about that schematic. You are using fixed (LED) bias without a CCS load and with a 1M grid resistor. You risk instability.

47uF film cap as output gives me 112.88Hz not 11.3Hz
