But if you have balanced headphones that make sense for you to use portably, then the Protector is the bomb
I understand your reasoning for not wanting to use 'home' headphones for portable use and the difference in the balanced connectors.
However I was refering to full portable use with balanced IEMS (sorry, wasn't clear on that matter)
So balanced IEM + Protector = nuff said?
Which is kind of what I was asking, why go any other way?
