So, I've been thinking about adding complimentary cans to my beloved HD650s to use with Lyr. I've been up and down the gambit of what would be complimentary to it.
There's the unattainable goal of the HD800s. I'd love that kind of sound stage and performance for classical, but honestly, for the $1500 they run, I could get a whole collection of the whole gambit of lesser cans. It seems kind of a silly direction to go until they come down in price.
Part of me is tempted by the orthos...largely just because I can because I have a Lyr and they're "better", right? I looked at LCD2....for a variety of reasons, it's not those. I'm considering HE-6. But for $1200 I might as well splurge to $100 and get HD800. That leaves HE-500 and HE-4. Both very reasonable options.
Then I keep coming back to K702 and DT880, the good old flagships. You know, back when they were the best thing around at any price. I keep hearing such good things about K702 paired with Lyr, and I know how good HD650 is paired with Lyr. It strikes me that a duo of the old flagships may trump a single top-tier can.
I don't intend to ditch my 650s. I love those cans. So it would be something complimentary to them that I'm in the market for.
For those that have heard DT880, K702, and either HE-500, HD800, HD700, etc on Lyr...which would you go for and why, specifically as a compliment to the laid back HD650.
Dude! It's like you're in my head!!! That's exactly what I'm searching for, also!
