bipolar supply versus higher voltage supply

I've read that both increases headroom but most are from higher voltage supply. what really are the pros and cons between the two? which is better? thanks :thumbsup

depends on the circuit but i have been playing around with amp style circuits in pedal form and found even at higher voltages it seems half the wave is clipped more when i utilize the standard vbias method. but i am trying the same supply but plus and minus and find a more reliable wave form. but i am just scratching the surface of my research here.
