Schiit Valhalla vs Schiit Lyr for HE-500

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
As the title says, which amp would you guys recommend more for the HiFiMan HE-500s, or does it not really matter? I have enough money for either one so that is not a problem, I just want to spend it on the right things.

Thanks

From what i had read, vahalla is for higher impedance, and lyr is for power hungry headphone. He-500 requires alot of power so i woulr recomend the lyr. Btw i use lyr with my he-400 and i like it very much

I know this is an old thread but the Valhalla is wonderful with my HE-500's once the Valhalla has warmed up for an hour. The immersive detail is utterly incredible and rivals all my vintage gear. 24/96 and above music never sounded better on this! If the Valhalla isn't warmed up though the highs distort and crackle with the HE-500 but after an hour its total bliss. 

It's rare I use the Valhalla though I usually use one of my Vintage amp's.
