RE: rewiring for balanced operation worthwhile?

Headphone cables can pick up ambient interference or have channel crosstalk, since many are at least several feet long and the signal is low voltage. So balanced cables can result in an improvement. But so can switching to unbalanced headphone cables with different electrical characteristics.

That being said, if you really like your HD 650's then recabling and buying a balanced amp could be a good investment. But for the same money, you might consider switching to different headphones that might sound better to you.
