My MDR-1AM2's came with a 4.4mm balanced cable that does not connect to my amp (Schitt Magni).

Is it worth it buying a 4.4mm balanced to 1/4 TRS adapter?
Did it only come with one cable ?

No, came with the standard one with a mic as well.
A 3.5mm (female) to 1/4 (male) adapter might work with the mic cable, for use with the Magni.

Then no need for anything else unless it didn’t come with a 3.5 to 6.35 adapter as well as those are much cheaper and won’t be any difference in sound and just bypass the mic so nothing to worry about there. The balanced cable is made from the same wire as the other one that came with it I’m sure so it is not going to sound any different .
