Acoustically optimized ear cups and specially-developed 40mm drivers keep the music sounding as accurate, clear, and natural as inside the recording booth. Fashion-forwar

I find that a lot of phones today are designed to deliver very heavy bass. The NAD's have solid bass that is clean and not muddy. I find myself adding a little EQ in the mid-range, but this could just be personal taste. These are very well balanced phones.
Wearing comfort is quite good - even for long periods of time. I have a large head and have to extend the phones to the maximum extent. Still, the fit is good and unlike the Sennheisers the ear cups are big enough to cover my ears. I don't like active noise reduction phones and the NAD's offer good isolation without coloring the music as active phones can.
Headphone are very subjective. However, I can recommend these without reservation.
Since I wrote the above I had a chance to use the phones on 2 1/2 hour flight. I found the noise isolation to be good, but not as good as some in the ear phones I have used for several years. The NAD's do a better job on higher frequencies, so the low frequency rumble in a jet was noticeable. Still, my listening experience was enjoyable.
After break-in, these are remarkably good headphones that offer great sound staging (not simply between your ears but beyond them and in front of you with layers of depth), good placement of performers, and the ability to listen for long periods without fatigue. They are well balanced across all ranges with very good bass (particularly with well engineered and mastered material), wonderful rich midrange, good instrument separation and focus, and very good detail in the upper ranges. I'm 61 and my hearing begins to diminish above 13.5khz but I clearly hear the sizzle and decay of cymbals very well with these phones. I would say they lean towards the lush presentation but are not veiled at all.
Last but perhaps most important, these are very enjoyable and listenable headphones. I have some significantly more expensive headphones that are going up for sale now - they just don't sound as good or are as fun to listen to as these Visio HP50's. Great job NAD.
Please note that the sound will change for the better after a period of at least 48hours of use. I simply put my media player on repeat and placed the headphones straddling the box they came in for a couple of days and only then did I do any critical listening.
For 2 days I used them on and off several hours. I then went back to my ultrasone and I was really surprised on how much clarity especially the mids I have been missing all these days..
Nad hp50 are very close to neutral. Even at high volumes the treble is very smooth unlike my ultrasone. The bass is well present, tight and you can feel it and it doesn't bleed into the miss.
I was ok with the comfort levels with respect to my head. I guess for my head there's some gap between the head band and my head which is what my main problem is. Only if I keep my head in the proper upright position looking up, the headphone cups seals my ears well and I could clearly feel the difference in the sound stage..But if I look down or any small head movement is changing the sound... for example if I look right then the sound in right cup sounds more pleasing and vice versa.. May be its my head shape I guess and if I don't look up(photo attached) the headphones sound very flat and also I can hear more ambient noise.. Definitely I see a problem in the cup design ..
Other than that boy these are great headphones and for the money you are getting almost same detail that you would get in the upper class audiophile headphones. I have tried shure 1540, sennheiser hd700, Audeze el-8c and I am so happy with the performance of these little hp50s.
All my listening is on my iPhone 6s. I know they would reveal more detail if you pair it up with amp..
