I was using my Schiit Lyr today and noticed some burn marks on the tubes I am using. They are the stock GE 6BZ7.

They are an excellent upgrade to the beats by dr. dre which I was unfortunately using prior to these arriving. These are very neutral and open sounding and the lower end is not as muddy as the beats. I am expecting the bifrost and lyr from Schiit to arrive some time next week so I...

My headphones at the moment are sadly the beats so anything should really be an upgrade for me.
Are there any other closed headphone recommendations?

I will be listening to apple lossless files off of my laptop so I need an amp that can connect to either a headphone out port or preferably a usb port. For genres I enjoy listening mainly to jazz along with...
