They are designed for portable use in terms of efficiency, not in terms of size or appearance IMO.  
I'm assuming he's referring to the fact that it wiggles a bit...
The hp50 is a bit more warm sounding, in comparison the PSB is a bit more forward and not as rolled off on the highs. If you're looking for gobs of detail the hp50 is not gonna do it for you.
If you find the NAD too warm then I'd suggest trying the P7
There's always a debate around that. Are you really breaking the headphones in or breaking your eras in, so to speak? Personally I don't care which is true, as long as I like the sound who cares? It's easy enough to test though, just take a new pair and an old pair and listen to them side by side and see if you can hear a difference blindfolded...
Nobody really complained about the price of the P7, and nobody is asking that they make them out of carbon fiber. Hell, make them out of the same plastic just make them with a better design, that doesn't cost a thing. I don't agree that they trounce the P7, each headphone has advantages and it comes down to which sound signature you prefer. The more I listen to the HP50 actually the less I like it, but it's still a very good headphone.
They fit me well, but I agree on the other points. They do sound great, but their appearance and build quality just leave too much to be desired. They look ginormous and square on my head, and I'm not a huge fan of the materials used. It's okay for a headphone to be ugly, but not one that's designed to be portable and worn out. Honestly I don't see this mentioned enough about these and maybe I'm being overly critical, but the design on these given their intended use is...
So do we seriously have NO comparisons between the new and old version yet, or did I miss it somewhere?
I actually agree that the Momentum is a more neutral headphone as I stated earlier in this thread. The InnerFidelity review summarizes exactly how I think the P7 sounds, they key difference being that I actually LIKE that sound and am willing to give up some midrange to get the detailed sound and great imaging and soundstage. I also think the measurements are a good indication of the shape of their sound. They don't account for imaging and soundstage obviously, but...
I believe that's only an amp, not a DAC and so not really comparable to the Theorem being discussed here.
