I'd go for the Magni... Seriously. 

 

An incredible amount of amp for the money and size, and as good as any other mid price amp I've heard. And I've heard quite a few over the years. (haven't heard the Lyr though :P)

Barely acceptable. There is a lot of room for improvement. I had to listen to this combo for about three months while I was waiting for my BHA-1 to be delivered and I was glad to see it go.

There are countless threads dedicated to discussing ancillary components for the HD800. Why not pose these questions there?

 

Fwiw, It's a demanding headphone, infamous for highlighting deficiencies in a chain. Your source also has to be equal to the task. It baffles me that so much focus is placed on amping requirements. Sure, the HD800 demands (a relatively high minimum level) of quality amplification compared to other headphones, but too often people put all their eggs in that basket. The possibility that the source component is the culprit is often overlooked. Careful consideration has to be taken with all components when building a system around the HD800. Anyone who has spent time with this headphone knows this. Those who haven't will regurgitate the old myths of grating treble, lack of bass and unnatural imaging.

Listening to a 320kbps Busta rhymes and Chris Brown song that came on my Nexus (Why Stop Now) and I just discovered the amp in my Bose companions is better than straight out of the Nexus, plugged in my XB500's and actually smiled at the bass. Whenever I would read reviews and somebody would say something like "uncontrollable grin" or something when they listen to a new pair of cans, I would categorize them as weird. Well, there is more bass through the XB's and this Bose amp than I get in my car with the bass all the way up (which I can't stand anyways).
Albeit, I may be hysterical because I'm on some heavy meds for the flu right now, but wow. I did not think I could achieve this much bass in a headphone. If I could find a pair of headphones that sound the same as the XB500's, and fold I think I would be set for life.

 

I don't even want to imagine what this would sound like through a ZO2.3, or an iBasso, or any other bass boost amp. This is so incredible to me I turned on my computer, went straight to this thread and typed this. This is a basshead's dream!

And yes, this is all the headphone equipment I have. Right now I'm trying to find a 1/4in. adapter so I can plug these bad boys into a Denon home reciever I have, and turn the bass boost all the way up (out of curiosity)

 

 

 

 

Apologies for low quality picture, I cant find the cord that hooks my camera up to my computer.

 

I could probably put this in the "Non audiophile reactions" thread too :)

I'm on the fence about spending ANY of my tax return money on gear. I need to put a new roof on my convertible. If I do get gear though I'm on the fence between a Maverick Audio D1 Plus or a Matrix M-Stage :D
