They've added XLR pre-amp outs on to the latest BHA-1 build.
Yes, they are actually pre-amp line outs, not headphone jacks.

And then there is my own mockup. :smile:

Just to quote myself.

"Hi Guys

..........

Basically it is a BHA-1 having two 4 pin XLRs, (much more convenient IMHO than using two 3 pin XLRs) but one with an independent gain allowing it to be adjusted with regards to another balanced or unbalanced headphone when used simultaneously.
For me this would be a big plus as many headphone users have more than one phone and or a significant other to listen with and also having the ability to adjust for unity gain between  two sets is a great comparison tool (which I believe a lot of us do all the time)."

I guess the 3 and 4 pin headphone XLRs are for versatility.
The gain control would not actually be practical, the headphone jacks all run off the same amplifier architecture.

Not if one would like to run two headphones simultaneously with different gain requirements , especially when sharing music or movies with a significant other.;)

But you can't do this the way the amplifier is currently designed.
