This is seriosuly insane sounding on the HE-500. Free and lossless.
3 hours straight on the HE500. I was about to go to sleep then saw your link to the album so I downloaded it and listened briefly thru the album but ended up repeating Dirt lovely 3 times.
Totally different cans, but my wife and I really like the AKG K550s. Not too expensive. Maybe you can demo them. I can tell you their ability to isolate external sounds and not leak (and she listens WAY too loud! ;-) is excellent.
Aah they can be found cheap which is a pre. Will they work well with Schiit Lyr?
Look into the Alpha Dogs. I don't know what your price point is, but the Alpha Dogs is one of the best bang for buck headphones out.
Yeah that one would be my choice if I could get them for the same price in Europa as in USA (599$ or 438 euro). But I can't so that one isn't an option
Custom fees of 25% and standard fee of 20-30 euro. So that adds up.
no worries, the akg k550 are a great pair of headphones!
edit: if you're thinkin abt goin portable there's the new akg 545
They are very easily driven, so the Lyr is almost overkill. But since you already own one...
I hate choosing. So I went to Marktplaats (Dutch Ebay pretty much) and wrote some people selling their closed cans. From Aiaiai to AKG K545; I wrote everybody with an offer. First one to accept my offer I take. That way I don't have to browse Head-Fi for three days untill I make up my mind, lol.
Portability would be a plus though. I'm in the train every once in a whole.
