I used to own HD650 for a good while when I got a chance to compare them with HD700 at home using WA7 amp with upgraded EH tubes. After hearing wider soundstage, better instrument separation and clarity of details I was unable to come back to HD650
Be aware that that HD650 are high impedance headphones while AP are low impedance headphones so that could be the reason for your problem
If you want deep tight punchy impactful bass which doesn't interfere with the rest of the sound then you definitely need tubes power supply for WA7 with Sylvania 5814A tubes . The difference I heard was so unexpected and clear so impossible to forget. I can't describe Lyr since I heard too long ago but can't forget surprising WA7
It's just sound signature preference, be aware I'm in minority who prefer 6N1P tubes in the Lyr over Orange Globes. You can get WA7 but you also should get tubes power supply to do the tube rolling to get sound you are after
When I had the units mentioned I got upgrade tubes for the amp and after over 100 hours I felt they gave me more refined details with a little bit deeper bass. I only heard WA7 with tubes power supply at the meets so had no chance to compare side by side but even just a few minutes gave me enough information to notice the difference between stock and tubes power supply. Even right now I'm using HA-1 as Dac only and use tubes amp to drive HD800. My attempt to get rid of...
Had no chance to hear Bifrost plus Lyr 2 but did the original Lyr against WA7 with stock power supply and preferred Shiit stack over WA7 . Also heard WA7 with tubes power supply with stock and Sylvania 5814A and would recommend it over stock power supply to improve clarity of details while 5814A tubes will affect bass
I don't want to start unwanted debate but I own 4 different cables and for me Draug 2 is the best for HD800
But you have to know how to do measurements and what those settings mean to get the proper results, while with graphic EQ you just play with the sliders until you get desired sound
That's closer to the truth
Loud enough doesn't mean they as good as intended
