Why balanced?

more_vert
Hi, I am new here and I am about to get the HD58xs as well as an amp with balanced 2.5 out and a single out 3.5 (Fiio BTR3K or BTR5). Sorry for a newbie question: Are HD58x headphones balanced? How do I merit by getting the balanced cable?

Yes, just about any headphone with dual entry cables (one in each cup) can be ran with via balanced output. Unless you aren't getting enough power I've not found much benefit to portable 2.5mm TRRS connections. I have balanced portable and home gear with a 2.5mm TRRS cable on my HD650. I think balanced configurations have their place but they get too much hype for their benefit.
