Headphones and balanced cables - need your knowledge, please

i still don't understand this Headphones thing and need your help please:

For my headphones (DENON D9200) i want to order those cables
https://de.aliexpress.com/item/32851...3da24c4dTcjpfc

to use the DENONs on a 4,4mm symmetric connection of a DAP.


Is this working? I mean, can ANY headphone (with replacable cable) can be used with a symmetric/balanced cable? Or do they have to get modded for that use?

Can i damage the headphones with such a balanced cable, if the headphone is not explicitly designed for symmetric/balanced use?

i know there is a lot of technical articles on this subject (balanced/unbalanced seems to be something different again than single-ended/double-ended etc) , but for a non-tech like me a simple explanation would be great

thanks a lot !
