I have a pair of on 558s with the stock cable.
Now the, single-sided, stock cable is a 2.5mm (mini) TRRS to 6.35mm (1/4") TRS.
I understand that for balanced audio, all you need is two hot wires for each channel (left and right) and to obviously connect to a balanced amp and source.
If I were to get a 2.5mm TRRS to dual 1/4" TS or dual XLR cable, would that make it balanced or not? Is the wiring inside the cans not incompatible of being balanced? Am I just missing something?
If it's not capable of being balanced, what's the point of the 2.5mm TRRS connector on one end of the stock cable?
