"My Favorite Sealed Headphone" - InnerFidelity.com
Cutting-edge Design Meets Best-in-class Performance
NAD sound quality comes to a new headphone which combines best-in-class performance with cutting-edge design. The VISO HP50 over-the-ear headphone features innovative RoomFeel™ technology borrowed from highly acclaimed sister company, PSB Speakers. The over-the-ear design helps provide a degree of passive isolation from external noise.
According to Tyll Hertsens in his November 1, 2013 review for InnerFidelity.com, "Simply put: The NAD VISO HP50 is my favorite sealed headphone to date for general purpose use… These headphones have a very pleasing, somewhat warm sound that doesn't get in the way of the details."
RoomFeel technology translates the warm, open sound of the live performance directly into your private headphone experience. The result is a headphone innovation that dramatically expands the whole soundstage. Your music will sound so rich and natural, you'll think you're listening to a set of high-end loudspeakers.
Multi-Click Remote with Microphone
The NAD VISO HP50 features an Apple three-button multi-click remote with microphone for full control of all Apple music and call functionality right at your fingertips: Play/Pause, Volume, Skip Track, Previous Track, Fast-Forward, Reverse, Make and answer calls. It includes a high quality microphone for voice-calling and device control with Siri-compatible devices.
Dual inputs add to the convenience. The detachable headphone cable plugs into either the left or right input. The ultra-soft noise-isolating earpads assure listening comfort.
In addition to the standard tangle-free ribbon cord, the HP50 comes with a second stereo cable, custom-designed carrying case, mini accessory travel pouch, and aircraft/stereo adaptors.
The NAD VISO HP50 comes in three finishes: Black, White, and Red.
"In a word: Fabulous! I keep on wanting to write that these are a warm and punchy sounding headphone, but it's just not quite true...well, they're warm and punchy when the music is, and the bass is well extended and very tight, but they're also articulate and clear in the treble, and well balanced throughout the mids."

Audio Advisor - NAD VISO HP 50 Over-Ear Headphones

|The best reasonably-priced cans you can buy|
The audio quality of these headphones is remarkable. The treble is crystal clear and there is palpable bass. I use it with an ADL X1 portable DAC and you can get world-class quality for a fraction of the price of the big boys. Excellent soundstaging and very involving. No wonder pro audio reviewers like Tyll Hertsens and Steve Guttenberg loved these cans. These are closed back phones so may not be the last word in airiness but I prefer that my neighbours arent disturbed as I commute.
