Amazing pair of headphonesMarch 27, 2014
So for a while I've been trying to find a decent pair of closed headphones to complement my open backed Sennheiser HD600 so that I could enjoy Hi-Fi sound on the go. I tried the Bowers & Wilkins and after getting disappointed by those I returned them and came across an article talking about these lesser known bad boys. The article I read ended up proclaiming that these headphones boasted a sound stage that rivaled many higher end open backed headphones such as the HD600. I laughed and said we'd see about that. As soon as they arrived at my door I cracked open the box and noted the robust, solid feel of the headphone and set to test it out on one of my favorite songs (Counter Attack Mankind from Attack on Titan) and was completely blown away. They sound GOOD; far better than what I expected from a pair of closed headphones and at such a great price. The sound is clean, clear, and crisp; and they work amazing without the need for an amp (which is a big plus). One thing that should be noted is that the Viso HP50 does its best to accurately present the original audio of the music you listen to, so they're not going to be super bass heavy. Anyone expecting a pair of headphones that will emphasize bass and nothing else will be pretty disappointed with them. Everything is balanced perfectly; lows, mids, highs, they're all there and they're all bright and crisp. The detachable/replaceable cord is a huge plus for me as well. For the most part they are comfortable, but I wish the ear pads were deeper. The headphones don't clamp on your ears really tight, but I do feel the edges of my ears press up against the headphones, which might cause discomfort after some time. All in all these are an AMAZING pair of headphones for a phenomenal price, they're in the same league as headphones that are twice as expensive as these. In fact it almost feels like a crime getting these headphones at this price - that's how good they are. I can't recommend them enough, if you've somehow stumbled this page and have read this review then do yourself a favor and BUY THESE HEADPHONES! Your ears will thank you for it!

The Sound is Unique and worth every bit the price.April 8, 2015
Though I didn't purchase them at BB when they became available because BB did not have them in my area to listen to them, I found them near to me in the KSA in a Audiophile local shop in Khobar. I Compared them with Some nice Grados [SR 325e] which was same price range that was available. The Paul Barton "Room Feel" tech on the HP50's definitely makes a difference in soundstage to me compared to the Grados but the Grados have an excellent stage regardless. I only had Cd quality music to compare as I didn't have the HI Res DAP to compare with at the time. But the more I listen to the HP50's the more I cater to its unique sound. It has a flat response on the entire frequency spectrum to me [So those who love heavy hitting ridiculous bass that isn't defined you will not like these] and I think this really adds to the detail when I was listening to Jennifer Warnes tracks repeatedly. I will eventually settle on a pair of Grado's since there sound is incredible in there own style but my goal when getting them is for home use and it would be the RS2e's which our out of the price range in this comparison and a much nicer pair in comfort /sound/quality. I use these mainly for travel to and from Saudi Arabia back to the USA. I can listen to the HP50's for hours at a time. I've read for some that the cup and band is uncomfortable because of pressure and the quality build is noticeable when listening to music when they shift.one comment I read was... * they feel cheap and can hear the movement of the plastic frame which is a major downer*.... I didn't hear any of that in listening to any genre of music that I have so maybe its dependent on how good your hearing is ?? . I would highly recommend these for there unique "room feel" tech and the sound definitely is noticeable. Good Job NAD & Paul Barton....once again you and the sound engineer /designer came up with a great piece of audio equipment at a great price!
