Zoom Hn4, any difference betwen line out and headphones?

I've been offered a used Zoom Hn4 which I'm considering. Guess I'll start doing some field recordings on it but I also want to use it as a playback machine. Primarily putting stuff through pedals and for the UW element of Machinedrum.

I notice there's only a mini-jack headphone out socket, and it may be a stupid questions, but I've always wondered if there's a difference in audio quality from a headphone jack and a designated line out?

Would this do the job as good as anything else as it's a fairly low price.

The difference is the [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
, which basically determines how well your headphones will be driven.

Line/phone:
LINE Output load impedance: 10 kΩ or more
Rated output level: -10 dBm
PHONE: 20 mW+20 mW (into 32-Ω load)
But yeah, you should be fine to use the headphone output.
