Yeah I know balance is way better but the problem is my HD558 is not using a balance connector and I am planning to get a HD 650 as well but that does'nt use a balance connector either. will it improve if I use a balance connector between a DP2 and PB2 but out a normal jack to my headphones?

Nice, although why is the adapter cable so stiff?

Wait, (sorry for the strike of curiosity) then why is it sticking out so straight? O.o

I'm so confused, haha...But it's best I don't go off topic, so don't worry about it:) Nice cable, nonetheless.

The cables on the HD650 are removable and easily replaced.  Buy a cable with the correct end, and you will be rocking balanced.  And yes, it is worth the effort.  The HD650 scales well...

DX50 connected to Db2 via coaxial (not in the picture). To me this connection has more dynamic and synergistic cuz you bypass the dac part in dx50 to use an external dac which is often better.
I will ask for you the link who made that balanced cable hirose to rsa.

Perhaps it got "excited" after seeing all the other beautiful rigs on here ;)

My new setup - iPod Touch 5g -> HiFi M8 -> DreamEarz Aud-8x





The M8 really has blown me away....I can't believe how good this sounds with an iPod.

Now I need to crack on and get myself a set of balanced full size headphones to use with this as well. Any recommendations from anyone? I'm thinking HifiMan HE400/500, HD650, Audeze LCD2 or Fostex TH600. What do other people think / recommend?
