That Schiit’ll blow out your eardrums

Schiit has taken two of the best adjectives ever applied to electronics – gorgeous and crystal-clear – and applied them beautifully to their new Lyr headphones amplifier.

Boasting 10 times the power of regular headphones amplifiers courtesy of two visible tubes, the Lyr’s sleek metallic design offer 32 ohms with zero feedback. This means your music will be deafening you faster and with insane clarity while you’re staring into the hypnotic red glow from the tubes. Which are replaceable as per your preferences, as it’s compatible with 6DJ8, 6922 or ECC88 – 6N1P type tubes.

For those unfamiliar with headphone amplifiers, they work to give you more volume and better quality, like a Brita filter for sound. It takes out that garbled, electrical background noise in your ears when you max out the volume on your laptop or iPod.

Probably your laptop. The German-sounding California company was probably aiming for the ‘listens to headphones at home’ market with this 7 lb sound ogre.

Schiit’s taking pre-orders now at $450 before their March 1 release. Check the full specs below:

  • Headphone Impedance: 8-600 ohms
