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.
InnerFidelity review is up, seems we agree that these are better than your typical portable headphone in scalability with better sources and amps.
I notice it on mine as well, seems to pick up interference fairly easily. I don't use mine with a phone so it's not an issue for me. I would contact Cypher and report back here.
If you like the looks of Hp50 then that's an easy decision as they sound better overall than the Momentum, though they are a bit more laid back.
