HE-500 paired with Schiit Lyr - Alot of undertone white noise

    I have been noticing on alot of tracks that there is alot of underlying white noise playing songs through my Schiit Lyr to my HE-500s.
    Does anyone know if this is a common problem with the Lyr? It seems to be more pronounced on acoustic and music that has moments of silence or breaks.

    i notice that too, but only from my right side ear cup,....any one?

    i would try pulling out the tubes and reseating them in the socket and seeing if that helps.
    does the issue persist with other cans? most likely the tubes, try switching them and see if the problem moves to the left earcup as each tube is responsible for something like 98% of the sound on their respective side.

    I'm running a pair of Sylvanias in my Lyr and the background is dead black with my HD650 unless I turn the volume up all the way with nothing playing (obviously). During normal use I've noticed no background noise at all that isn't inherent to the recording.
