57 years on flute. Never, ever used a lyre. I've never seen one that either doesn't mess up the angle of the flute or the embouchure alignment. Then there is the one that hangs around the neck down to the chest, where there is a butterfly nut attaching it to another section that angles up an has a lyre attachment that holds up (supposedly) your flip folder... And bounces up and down with each step.
Angle and distance of vision to the music seems to be the biggest drawback with the one you mention, along with the weight pulling down on the left arm.
It is much better to memorize your music in the first place than to depend on any of these contraptions.
