How much battery life you guys are getting with balanced card? Let's say normal 16 bit mostly and some 24 high res. playback.

Depends upon how loud and what you are driving. I would guess around 7 hours to 7.5 but it depends upon what you are driving. More with IEMs and a little less with something that has a heavy current draw.

SE5way, the one that Mim also has. Maybe he can tell me how much he gets. If it is like 10 hours, I might really consider it and close my head fi account :tongue_smile:

I just received my iem card. I am going to compare with balanced card on my SE5...not so easy since switching cards is a hassle.

Just got a pair of RE600's today. They sound excellent with the 901 balanced. Very realistic timbre and imaging is good. A match made in heaven!

Technical question: if I plug my TRRS jack in the 901 while I am using it in singled ended mode, is there a risk? Do I have to use the adapter in single ended mode?

I'm no expert at this but I think there will be no risk as the HM-901 is throwing out only one signal on single ended mode, but you'd probably get channel imbalance of some sort. Might sound wonky if TRRS in single ended mode. 

 

Experts, do tell us! I'd like to know too!

No problem with balanced card in single-ended mode with my RE600. Not sure about other cards, though.

I think what Mimouille meant was that would say in your case, plugging in the RE600 on the TRRS (without the single ended adapter) to HM-901 on single-ended mode, cause any damage to IEM or the DAP

I have still not had much time to try the iem card. It is quite hard to compare as switching takes time. How is the Minibox with iems?
