DIY balanced cable pentaconn to 3.5m TS wiring

Hi everyone, newby here.

I’m trying to make my own balanced cable for my Meze 99 Noir and have some trouble with the wiring, I was hoping someone here could help me. I have a 4.4mm Pentaconn connector that connects to the amp and two 3.5mm TS connectors connecting to the headphone. If my understanding of how a balanced cable works is correct, it should work if I wire the positive and negative signal to separate parts of the 3.5mm connector, L+ to the tip and L- to the sleeve. If I connect the wires as shown in the picture below would this be correct?
