Color me confused, why would this amp have balanced inputs but no balanced output?
Many amps have some kind of dual-mono input, but only have single-ended outputs, such as Violectric V200. It is very possible that the H10 uses both + and - signals internally from the balanced input, so you still get some of the benefit by having a start to finish balanced chain. I guess manufactures can assume that most headphones are not wired for balanced use, and thus by doing so they can keep down the cost of parts and labor. I recall reading on head-fi where someone said using the balanced input of H10 gave a slightly better soundstage.
Especially since the H10 is a V200 clone....
