So for my first step into the world of high quality home audio I ordered a pair of these headphones and I'm looking to get an amp that will properly drive them.

I've heard some people talking about the Lyr but I was wondering if anyone knew if a Bottlehead Crack would be up to the task and if so which would be more worth my time.

 

(I know its largely subjective but I appreciate any input!)

Just make sure that it has enough power to properly drive orthos, after that, it is all about preference. Some like certain amps, while others like other amps.

Power is not an issue between those two. I would probably have to recommend the Lyr because of its lower output impedance. The Crack is nice, but is really mostly optimal on high impedance headphones (120 ohms +) as it is an OTL amp. The Lyr seems to be much more suitable for the relatively low impedance (50 ohms) of the Mad Dogs.

I would probably follow this recommendation.  I've got two OTL headamps plus the Schiit Asgard.  I love tubes, and really enjoy the OTL's with my HD650's and ATH M-50's, but the Mad Dogs sound better on my Asgard than with either of my OTL headphone amps.  If you'd like to do tubes with them, I'd suggest trying to hunt down a Decware Taboo with the headphone out.

You've just made me very happy! Can't wait to try them with mine. 

 

What do you think of your 650 out of the asgard? It's the only real amp I got right now and I thought they worked pretty nice with the cans (but you need to turn the knob a lot higher), but I'd love input from someone with tube amps too.

Just got my mad dogs with dog pads today. I will post some impressions and comparisons tomorrow after i get some time with them but so far so good. I can say however that they are VERY comfortable.

 

More to come.

Interested in hearing your Mad Dog / HE-400 comparisons.

I just got my mad dogs!  First off the these are really comfy headphones!  I will comment on sound when I get some burn in time on them.  my setup is

 

Ibasso D7 (with spdif out coax)--AVA vision dac-- Decware mini torrii.  I use to own the LCD2 rev 1 but sold them  due to the weight on the head and so far the mad dogs are light and comfy...loving it.

 

enjoy all

Both candidates for Speaker Headphones of the House are now in attendance! After hearing them debate a few (musical) issues, I can tell it will be a tight race...

 

Stay tuned for news at 11!   beyersmile.png

Unfortunately i have the HE-4's not the HE-400's, but i will do a comparison between the two as well as the LCD-2 Rev 2.

I wish I could really give you that opinion, but my Asgard and Mad Dogs are my work setup, so they're currently a half hour drive away from me.  I can definitely say that the HD 650's make for a great combo with a Decware CSP2+, but I haven't really tried anything else with the Asgard yet.  I intend to bring it home over a weekend to do some comparisons, but right now, I don't think I'll have the time until after RMAF/CanJam.  (Who knows? At that point I may have even more to throw into a comparison test).

 

I can say that the Asgard + Mad Dogs make for an excellent pairing even before considering the total cost.
