Terrific sound and value

Jim, Crutchfield
7 December 2015
  • Summary: The NAD Viso HP50 headphones are a terrific value for the money. The expansive and detailed sound stage is accurate in its reproduction and separation is excellent. Treble, midrange and base are well balanced without an overemphasis on bass.
  • Pros: Good separation and detailed sound throughout the entire range. Fantastic value for the price.
  • Cons: The shape of the headband is not the most flattering (a bit square looking) for those who care about that, but they are comfortable for extended periods of listening.

  • Summary: So I am exhausted from listening to so many headphones and I am happy to say the HP50s may be the steal of the headphone offerings. I felt they had comparable clarity and detail to over ear headphones in the $400 range.
  • Pros: Comfort and good isolation. Good warm, detailed sound.
  • Cons: The flat headband shifts a bit when moving your head and could have been a tad more padded.

Velvety Sound, but short on bass

Mark A, Crutchfield
18 June 2015
  • Summary: Overall, they sound great. Silky smooth highs and velvety midrange. Perfect for jazz, and any genre of music that doesn't have a lot of low end. For rock, I found them lacking, particularly on bass-heavy tracks.
  • Pros: Velvety midrange and silky smooth highs. You'll hear subtle notes and undertones in your music that you've probably never heard before.
  • Cons: Bass is lacking, especially for those tracks requiring a lot of low end impact.

  • Summary: Just great / rich sound from these headphones. They seem to do just about everything well. I would describe the sound as rich, smooth, lively and dynamic. I was comparing these against my Audio Technica ATH-M40x and Beyer DT860.
  • Pros: Nice rich sound, throughout the freq. spectrum. Silky smooth sound.
  • Cons: For me, the bass can sometimes be a tad much (I am def. *not* a "bass head"). However, I don't think the bass is overcooked - it's just accurate. Compared to my Beyer headphones, it's a contrast... but maybe not such a bad thing, just takes getting used to. Also, there is a creaking soun...

Great sound, more comfortable than I expected

Peter, Crutchfield
22 April 2015
  • Summary: The only reason I'm not giving these 5 stars on sound quality is that they're not playing in the same league as $1000+ headphones. For the price, they're excellent. I compared them with my Sennheiser HD580s (my preferred neutral headphones) doing some critical listening (The Sixteen singing...
  • Pros: The sound is excellent, the cable you can attach to either side is a great design, and all the cushions are wonderfully soft and snug. They're also closed headphones, which are hard to find (at least good ones).
  • Cons: There's a single point of contact (pressure point) due to the headband design, but as mentioned in the review, it turns out not to be a big problem with these (and it usually is for me). They also look a little goofy. My only wish is that I could extend the headband one click larger or bend the...

Excellent sound

  • Summary: I love the sound of these headphones. They are very detailed, with nice full bass that is not over-emphasized like in some others that I listened to. They fit my large head well, and are very comfortable overall.
  • Pros: Excellent sound. Very well built.
  • Cons: Not super attractive compared to some of the other headphones Pressure point after extended use

Wonderful Sound

Jim, Crutchfield

  • Summary: This is a great sounding headphone. Very balanced, clear, and non fatiguing. The only negatives are the squarish headband looks a bit odd when wearing them (though they are comfortable), and I wish sound isolation was a bit better.
  • Pros: Sound quality even with portable device, comfortable.
  • Cons: Sound isolation could be better, squarish headband design looks a bit odd when wearing them.

Clarity and detail

  • Summary: These headphones are great sounding and comfortable. I wish they looked a little less odd when worn. The headband does not follow the shape of your head, but the sound and comfort allow me to forgive this aesthetic flaw. <br /> <br />
  • Pros: Build quality Sound Comfort
  • Cons: Appearance of the headband The mid-treble push of these headphones can seem slightly overdone on some recordings Not as noise-isolating as expected

  • Summary: I was looking for a pair of general use closed-back headphones with a replaceable cable that I could use for games, movies, and music. <br /> <br />After a solid 2 days of burn in time, these things really open up and sound amazing.
  • Pros: Open, clear, sound that competes with $400 headphones Compatible with V-Moda BoomPro microphone
  • Cons: Plastic on the ear cups feels a little cheap
