You can make a balanced to 1/4" headphone plug adapter to switch between amps, but all this costs money and time.
most "balanced" output headphone amps are in fact bridged amps and you can't use an adapter with a common gnd TRS between the amp and the headphone

the only way is to rewire the headphpone for "balanced" connectors, cable that keeps all 4 wires separate all the way

I mean an adapter to use the converted balanced headphone to plug into a normal unbalanced jack.


That was my point you have to do a lot of work, most people aren't going to want to get rid of their favorite normal headamp.
