Headphones and cables for the Balanced output on the PONO Player

Posted by JFunk on 06/11/2014 in Special projects, Technologys |

We had seen the PONO Player on kickstarter and it had been in the tech and audio press quite a bit in 2013 but now there are finally units being shipped and it looks to be one of the most exciting DAPs to come out in a long time. One thing that made it look particularly interesting to me was the balanced output mode on it giving not only the option of a connecting it via XLRs to a balanced amp but also balanced connection to headphones. As standard on headphones the left and right channels share a common ground connection which holds them back a bit and can cause crosstalk between the two channels. With a balanced connection both left and right are kept seperate with their own + and – wires.

We now have a cable for the HD650, HD600, HD580 and HD25sp which is designed to be used with the balanced output on the pono and we are working on a couple of custom pairs of headphones designed to work with it as well. We will be selling a balanced version of the DT770 and the HD25 under our Uber range of modified headphones

We are also able to re-wire most headphones to take a balanced input so if you are looking to get the most out of your PONO player just pop us an email and we can work with you to tweak and modify your headphnes
