NAD Viso HP50 Black

 

The headphone comes in three colors -- black, red and the white you see here. It's well constructed yet fairly lightweight for a full-size headphone, weighing it at 8.0 ounces or 226 grams. As far as extras go, it comes with two 4.2-foot (1.3m)...

The NAD Viso HP50 offers impressively accurate, clean sound and is well designed and comfortable to wear. It folds flat for storage in a nice carrying case (which is included) and comes with both a straight cable and one that integrates an Apple...

Somewhat expensive; some remote features may not work with Android devices.

The NAD isn't head and shoulders above the competition in its price class, but it does sound really good and should be given careful consideration if you're looking for an audiophile-grade headphone that won't break the bank.

NAD HP50 Viso Over-the-Ear Headphones

 

In this category of entry level audiophile headphones I look for several key components. First is a balanced sound, second is comfort, and third is value. We all like to find that product that presents a great value and makes you feel like you are...

NAD VISO HP50 HEADPHONES

 

The NAD HP50 are good critical listening headphones with a unique look and a decently durable design. They have a well-balanced sound and a stable fit that's good enough for sports, but they're a bit too tight on some heads. They also do not block a...

Good audio reproduction. ; Easy-to-use and stable design.

Poor noise isolation. ; Tight and slightly uncomfortable fit. ; Bass delivery varies significantly across users. Sensitive to glasses.

Bob Barrett auditions the NAD Viso HP50 over-the-ear headphones, which were designed by Paul S. Barton of partner company PSB.

The NAD Viso HP50's sealed design provides effective isolation from environmental noise while also managing to sound more like you're listening to music from loudspeakers in a room, with a more natural, open, and three-dimensional sound ; The NAD Viso...

The gloss finish of the ear cups picks up fingerprints easily

In the NAD Viso HP50, I've found a closed-back, audiophile-grade headphone for everyday use that sounds more like an open-back design and has a more reasonable price than typical audiophile headphones. The Viso HP50's balanced sonic presentation makes...

NAD VISO HP50

 

The NAD VISO HP50 is a game changer in my view, there isn't really anything quite like it in the closed back mid-fi world. I have quite a lot to say about this one so sit back, relax and enjoy.

I regard this headphone as the best closed back $300 and under headphone of recent times. I think it is superior in sonic quality to the likes of the Momentum, M-100 and the Denon D-2000, but the HP50 is also vastly inferior in musicality. This is not...

NAD VISO HP50

 

A set of headphones designed for use with Apple products but they work on other devices, Apple do have high standards – as well as high prices – so the headphones here give excellent sound quality as well as a good frequency range.

Yes as we mere mortals using a PC know Apple kit is expensive and these are designed for Apple use but they work just as well with a PC or audio system. Open the box and you know it’s luxury, first way it can be closed again as you do not have to...
