    Don't really know to much about those but it seems like the cable is not detachable and you will not be able to use those in the 2.5mm socket. If you are wanting to experience balanced sound you will need different headphones/IEMs.

    Yes, it has. But this can be reversed by a setting: enable the "Variable line out mode" and now the limit is gone. And yes, headphones can be used with the variable line out enabled.

    There's unfortunately no cheap way round it, none of the major IEM manufacturers also make balanced cables, even if they sell detachable 'phones. Sony did at one point, but no longer. I ended up getting Effect Audio cable through hifiheadphones, budget cable is still £160 all in!! Assuming it lasts though, I do consider it an improvement worth the expense

    Try surf cables in the USA and Shure IEMS

    Like I said earlier I'm more than happy to buy some balanced earphone but have no idea where to start looking manufactures etc.

    I'm in UK btw.

    Linum Cables (linum.de) are quite remarkable.

    I recommend the Fender/Aurisonics lineup for IEMs as they have a signature to suits most tastes and their ‘heavy’ offerings are second-to-none. Also available worldwide afaik.

    That should be https://www.linum.dk/ :wink:

    How much do you want to spend and what kind of sound sig do you like? Lots of bass or very articulate...
