Congrats on the 650!! Regarding to the amp...just get the lyr with nice tubes and be done. very_evil_smiley.gif

I was interested in the Valhalla rather than the Lyr. I read somewhere that an OTL design is the best match for the 650s... Maybe I'll rather try my first DIY with a Bottlehead Crack...

Yep, they do.

 

And congratulations!  Welcome to the club. :)

Good, I need one, thanks!

Before I bought my HD650, I was deciding between the Senn and HE500. I asked Jason of Schiit which amp to go best with each cans.
He told me to pair HD650 with Lyr, and HE500 with Asgard.
He also said that he would rank Lyr, Valhalla, Asgard, in that order, as the amp to go with HD650.
 
Hope it helps.
Caveat: I am now using Lyr, but I have not tried the other Schiit amps.

I also have Valhalla/650 combination and I love it. It is possible that it is too smooth and lush sounding, however, and going with a solid state amplifier - or a hybrid, such as the Lyr - might provide a better balance.

What about the Crack/Glenn OTL?

The Lyr is my next purchase so I will let you know when I get it! ;-)

+1, with the right tubes the Lyr/HD 650 is a fantastic combo.

When I was deciding whether to get Lyr or not ... it was like .. well this guy ^^ got 5.5k posts so I better believe what he is saying :D + Skylab (probably one of biggest "monsters" in positive way, here on forum got Lyr pretty high on his amp list)

 

+ @$%^ I never saw company with better customer support. 

 

My Lyr got pretty fuc*** up on way to me ... broken power switch being main problem. When I asked Jason about this ... he just told me he will send me 2 switches for free from US to EU. Don't think any other company will do things like this. (Btw, it was used Lyr not new from Schiit !)

Oh and ... I'am still thinking about that new/old pad conversation we had some ages ago. Somebody provided this link -> http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/116427-REG/Sennheiser_050635_H50635_Ear_Cushions.html , when I get new pads from here will they be the new ones ? bigsmile_face.gif or is it possible they still have old in stock?

 

I feel like mine are totally deformed, tried washing and it didn't help.

 

ps: Taking out foam between driver and ear will screw up sound biggrin.gif tried this too wink.gif

I finally re-united with a pair of these bad boys after 3.5 years.

 

 

Nothing but the HD 650s sound like the HD 650s..
