The headphone jack would be used for input AND output. Since both signals would be traveling over the same wire, you would get a lot of annoying "cross talk" which is a fancy term for that type of feedback. It is not realistic feedback like you may hear on a guitar amp, either. To solve this, you simply use the dock connector for input and headphone jack for output. This eliminates crosstalk for a very real sound.
