Bite the bullet and orders a Lyr for my HD650. Arrives later this week. Fingers crossed that it will be a good fit!
New Schiit Lyr: Hybrid 6W Headphone Amp. Yes. Six. Watts. RMS. - Page 55
Gear mentioned in this thread:
It pairs/sounds good with virtually all headphones IMO, except IEMs.
You may experience some noise floor with efficient closed cans like the M50s but I have not found that bothersome on my Denon D7000s and it can also be lessoned depending on the valves (tubes).

Well, what IEM's are you using? With my Etymotic 4S's it drives them fantastically well... as it does with my Beyer 880 / 600 ohm cans.
And, if you are hearing a raised noise floor, you might have some noisy tubes.
I don't any negatives about this amp... it's a must have!
