24bit has posted a review of the NAD VISO HP50 headphones ($299) at Headfonics. His conclusions:
“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 a musical headphone to me and seems setup for those who either prefer this type of flat response ( there are a lot of audiophiles who like this ) or studio engineers who need a solid pair of monitors. Studio’s in general are going to love this headphone and right now I cannot think of a single closed back sub $300 set that even remotely came close to the overall usefulness of this headphone. It’s one of those well rounded headphones with no real weaknesses.”
