I believe the DT880 graph is smoothed A LOT more than the HE4. (1/3 DT880 vs 1/24 HE4)

I'm looking at them, are you on your mobile? They're also on the album portion on the upper right hand corner of the page (if you're looking via PC)
For what it's worth, those two graphs shouldn't be compared together since they aren't on the same measuring setup. If you search for purrin's graphs on the DT880 2003, they are on his newer setup (along with the HE-4 measurement). The treble spike doesn't look as crazy on his new measuring setup.
That's a good question, I haven't tried it on either one of those! I've only tried the HE-4 on the Ember, Vali, and Emotiva mini-X. I'd rate them like this: Ember>Vali>>mini-X. The mini-X was very congested and grainy, not for me. Ember is the most spacious and analytical while not sounding grainy at all. Vali is smooth and not quite as spacious, more intimate.
The Lyr sounds like something I need to try. Energy and impact are the two things that the mini-X had going for it but the congestion and graininess had me jumping off the bandwagon as soon as I jumped on, haha. The Lyr could very well have the good aspects of the mini-X without the downfalls.
