Pros: Versatile, multirole, excellent scalability, warm and smooth sound while still maintaining good dynamics, comfortable,
Cons: Looks good anywhere: on the desk, on the headphone stand, lying around the office, next to your badass dac/amp, on Instagram, except on your head.
I am pleased to say that the NAD Viso HP50 is a rare breed of multirole products that is good in all aspects, while being excellent in some. It's excellent plugged into my Burson HA-160D and my Objective2. It is good plugged into my portable gears, and even straight out of my iPhone 5S, which means you can use it for both portable and un-portable applications with great results. Other reviewers more experienced than I have stated what this headphone sounds like: It has a full bodied mids, slightly boosted bass, and an inoffensive treble. I'd say it follows similar signature as many other newer European offerings from Philips Fidelio ranges, Momentums, B&O H series, B&W P series, and Focal Spirit series, but with even more careful tuning and refinement. This kind of signature suits multiple genre of music, apparently. I think Paul Barton did superbly in the tuning and the refining of this headphone. If you can only have one headphone, this is what you should get. This, IMHO, is the F-35 of the headphone world
