"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

Quality built , I got the red ones and are very attractive. The sound is superb. Voices are very clear and are out in front of the music. Instruments sound great thru the low, mid and high range. All in all a great pair of phones. Recommended.

|Excellent Sound and Overall Design|
I read somewhere the designer of these was trying to create headphones that could capture the sound of listening to speakers and I think he did a pretty good job of it. I'm not an audiophile, but I spent a lot of time researching headphones. In terms of build quality, these look and feel like quality headphones. The construction is sturdy, and the lay-flat design with the nice soft leather case is perfect for traveling or even just commuting. Though these are not noise canceling, the isolation is fantastic. The soundstage is very impressive for closed headphones, as well. I listen to classic rock, jazz, classical, alternative, and some electronic.

|Wonderful Headphones with Good Balance|
These are easily one of the best sounding headphones out there, especially for the price. Thier sound is extremely neutral and balanced, with a hint of warmness. Bass is punchy and extends very well into the sub-bass frequencies. Mids are smooth, not as forward as other headphones so they to blend well into the music and vocals sound very natural. Treble has just the right amount of energy and clarity, lending a sense of airiness without being fatiguing. I would definitely recommend trying these out if you're looking for a great sounding closed back headphone.

|Best $300 Headphone Out There|
I LOVE my new NAD cans! These headphones are light on the head and sound so clean and natural. The Bass is not overwhelming which I love. I have B&W cans too, I like these HP-50's better due to their natural sound. These have to be the best $300 headphones in the world.

|These Are A Steal|
After listening to a TON of headphones I am happy to say the HP50s are the steal of the headphone offerings. I felt they had comparable clarity and detail to over ear headphones in the $400 range. But most of all, they were easily the most comfortable of all the models I tested.

|Very good for the price|
These are very well made & very elegant sounding. Also a perfect size & balance. Sonically, they are very good...just not as good as my $1,100 Oppo PM-1 reference 'phones.

|A Very Good Deal|
These are a great deal, great space with these offering excellent spatial imaging for closed headphones. I bought these on sale so they were a very good deal.
|Absolutely Amazing Sound!|
I bought my NAD Viso HP50's 7 months ago and i can say without any reservation - these cans are absolutely amazing. I cannot believe how great they sound for only $299. These are the best cans I've ever had. Brilliant sound!

|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.
