A 3.5mm connector plugging in/out cannot boom more than the amount of DC that is being blocked by the capacitor. With most soundcards and onboard sound this is usually 2.5V or less since this needs to be the midpoint of the voltage swing when powered by a single +5Vcc. Most onboard sound can't reproduce the 2Vrms redbook standard due to this same Vcc limitation.

Or in other words, the boom is not loud enough to do any damage to the speaker.
