I'm selling my HE4, Lyr, and D7000. Financial reasons. Looks like I'll be a PC360 and KSC75 guy for a while.

Oh it's cool. Money's a little tight, but I'll get by. Selling this stuff will alleviate it a bit. If anything, I know I'll be getting the D7000 later on again and probably just stick to those and my KSC75.

My Lyr has been sold already, lol. I really need the HE4 to sell. The D7000 can wait...

It's a shame I didn't choose an amp that could power orthos (don't get me wrong, I'm happy with my choice, but that rules HE-4/5/6 out)

My E9 powers it fine, but they definitely sound more alive on the Lyr.

I've been considering an HE-4, but I'd probably prefer a solid state amp.  I know I could do some funny business with a receiver, but I only have the room for a headphone amp sized device.  Is there anything like this that can really power orthos?

There are plenty of high powered SS amp, my current amp does nearly 4000mW out on a 16Ohms load.

Just remeber it's cheaper to keep it than to sell it and buy it later.
 
By the way this is a great thread.  Thanks for the info.  I don't have alot of different headphones and I got a HD-650 like 4 years ago with a zero and I have loved it.  I wish I had more headphones to try and a better amp, but I have a kid and one on the way so my fun budget when bye bye, but now I am older and make more money.

Anyone else tried the DT770 Premium 32ohm for gaming w/DH?
 
I've just got one and it seems pretty decent in CSS. It barely has any bass so could it be superior to the Pro/80 for competitive purposes?
 
I'd still like to try the AD700/K701/HD598 as I really want the best directional/positional accuracy.

Well, once my HE4 sells, the only can I'm buying back in the future may be the D7000. I'm gonna keep it very simple from now on. One headset, one music/movie can, one comfort can (KSC75). All aren't hard to drive, so my E9 is plenty, so no more need for a beast amp like the Lyr.

Coincidentally, been using the HE4 with the E9 all last night and I don't miss the Lyr at all. The E9 brings out more of the mids and lessens the control of the sub bass (the Lyr controls it so much sometimes it feels like it could use more sub bass), so it works better for bass heavy music. The Lyr has more mid bass, and a more realistic sound, but if I only had the E9 for the HE4, I would still recommend it over the K701, DT880/DT990 and all the other mid fi cans I have owned. The HE4 is that good, even through the E9.

The DT770/32 should be a stellar gaming can, as it has most if not all that makes t

The MMX300 one of the best headsets... its practically a DT770/32 with a mic.

I know you're a basshead, so I'd like to know what you think of the bass out of the HE-4. 
 
I'm also thinking that it might be a good idea to make recordings comparing CMSS to Dolby headphone, though I'm not sure what way would be the best.  Playing back a TF2 replay with a loopback is the best way I can think of.  Maybe even a toslink loopback?

Would the AudioGD FUN be able to handle orthos?

If the specs are honest it should handle anything short of the HE-6 unless you combine earsplitting volume with insane EQ.

Just bought an Ultrasone HS-15 off of ebay, it's basically their HFi-15g (which I also have) with a boom mic. I've been using the hfi-15g instead of my hfi-2200 in black ops for the past few days and found them to be very comparable. The 15g has much less bass than the 2200 which helped a lot. The 15g is also super light weight and I do forget that I have them on. I can't wait for my HS-15 to come in so I can stop using a clip on mic.
