NAD Viso HP50 : Another superb headphone from Paul Barton? - Page 94

I think headphones last a long damn time.  I did get rid of a Grado SR60 after about 20 years, but I could have had it repaired.

 

Hey thanks for the response! That’s good to know that the cables are replaceable. I saw that they’re compatible with the V-Moda cables, is that what you would use?

Yeah I definitely agree about the M50s, they’re my other pair of headphones and I feel like they’ll last forever unless I really screw up!
 
I guess now that I think of it, for the most part they’ll either be at home or on my head, but the one scenario I’m worried about is if I have to pack them in my backpack with my laptop which I think is around 5 pounds. Assuming I use the HP50 case, do you think they would hold up under that scenario or do you think I’d have to carry them in a separate bag? It's something I definitely never worry about with my M50s lol. 
 
Also, as far as the creaking, is that something that hinders the listening experience or it’s just kind of something you notice when you’re picking them up?
 
Thanks!

 

If you retract the cups before transporting they will be fine, since the fragile parts will be protected.

 

I think not everyone has reported creaking, so YMMV. If you do get a creaky pair, it will affect the listening experience. I returned the HP50 in favor of HD600, but if I recall correctly only one cup creaked, and it did so intermittently when my jaw moved (e.g. yawning).

Yes.

I have no worries at all about the build quality of the HP50s.  They seem very sturdily made to me.  Unless you plan on standing on them or doing some other crazy thing to them, but that would apply to any headphone (except maybe the German Maestro 8.35s!)

This hp is starting to become more and more comfortable. I was wearing it while watching some show, then I moved back forgetting the fact that I'm wearing one, then the cable dragged my laptop off the cooler (OMG).

 

Weird.

NAD replied the following, when I was asking recently....

 

EDIT:

Have to add , that I selected "Germany" within the contact form.

I don't know, if Dynaudio also provides NAD replacement parts in other countries.

If the distributor in your country does not carry these, then recommend you contact NAD via their

website https://support.nadelectronics.com and submit a support request.

The NAD Viso HP50 is a well crafted and very comfortable headphone, and I travel with mine in a backpack, but i don't think the earpad hinges would be very forgiving under some tension at the wrong angle, so I usually keep them at the top of my bag and i haven't had any issues.
