I recently purchased the Roku Ultra w/JBL ear buds (about 6 weeks ago) and have had to change the batteries about 4 times to date. All brand new batteries. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there anything I can do about it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Do you leave the earphones plugged in when not in use?
I don't know about the Ultra, but the remote that came with my Roku 3 several years ago kept the earphone amplifier in the remote active (and using up batteries) whenever the earphones were plugged in, no matter whether I was streaming anything.

Yes, I have had the same issue that started recently after two years of problem-free use. New batteries installed appear to die within a day or two when headphones are plugged in. No such issue if headphones are not used. Wondering if there was some software update that is causing this problem.
