I was hoping to get 100% more power; instead of 200mW balanced, 100mW SE. I fully understand balanced out, but I also assumed that they require balanced headphones with the correct circuit to merge + & -, while discarding the noise. I have no idea about the adaptor layout, but I assumed they would discard one of each sides extra pin. I read about all these people changing their SE cables to Balanced on their IEMs/Cans and getting amazing sound difference, which again makes no sense to me since "I thought" they need the circuit to merge and discard noise... I have no idea about balanced DAPs, because I always thought balancing was for cars, and AC power interference (my sub needs balancing) but since DAPs are portable the noise would be minimal. So I'm here asking questions.
