With my CIEMs it's the most amazingly 3D experience I've ever heard. Tons of detail suddenly available because the soundscape isn't as crowded, everything has its own clearly defined place (on good recordings, naturally).

So do those balanced converters that you can plug an SE headphone cable connector into work?

Man... some people say balanced gives more detail and better soundstage and is just better overall, while others say its better soundstage at the expense of detail...

 

rly wish i could just get an answer myself by trying it out... but my wallet man... my wallet...

 not all setups are the same, not all recording are the same, way too many variables

Hey, there is a easier way coming for a balanced set up. Hifiman's coming up with the HM700 balanced dap packaged with re400b (b means balanced here) together for around $250 in China. Yes, that's for hm700+re400b. Though right now they have not yet offered it out of China. I will be getting mine soon as my friend is coming back from China this week!

I demo the HM700 yesterday with my Paterre with TRRS termination. I really like the sound coming out of this even with unfamiliar local pop music. I did not buy it because I am not sure if I can really find a good quality L-shaped TRRS plug to replace my TRRS cables.The phone jack is located on the side and it is really a pain in the butt (literally if you do put in your jeans back pocket) to use. Secondly, I was planning to get the package with RE600b and the cost is around the stock HM802. That makes the decision even harder .....

Got to agree with you on that headphone jack position. I heard that the hm700 is designed to work together with re400 so it would probably be a nice combo. I'll post some impression when I get it.
