This may be a silly question, but wondering if someone can explain what you specifically need, and the benefits of, a balanced output amplifier and headphones.
I am looking at new IEM's and a portable amplifier but have only ever had or used standard output in the past. However I have noticed some portable amplifiers like the RSA SR-71B and Protector amongst many others, have a balanced headphone out socket.
I understand as a whole, the benefits of balanced outputs but not sure what you need from the headphone / IEM point of view. Can any headphone / IEM be converted to a balanced output or do you also need special drivers?
I hope someone can shed a bit of light on this for me, as this is a new area of exploration for me and has always confused me.
Thanks in advance.
