Do DNA owners prefer single ended or balanced? I heard with Sennheisers 800 balanced is the way to go, but with other headphones it's a toss up. What is your guys experience?
After all these years, how is there still confusion. Stop spreading non-sense people.
Balanced is not universally better.
Your headphones DO NOT sound better "balanced". Your HD800's don't know or care. One has a cool looking plug to dazzle your friends, the other looks phallic. That's literally the only difference to your HD800's.
It does matter, however, to the amp and DAC. Some amps and DACs are built with a balanced design. Some are built with a single ended design. Use them as they are intended.
The Stratus is a SET amp. Go google what that means.
