Go for a Speaker test in your local high fi shop, its worth it.

The HP 50 is quite nice, but I found it a little less engaging than I liked. I think a little more dynamic quality (even if that results in more colouration) would help the HP 50. I wouldn't call it boring by any stretch, but I couldn't describe it as engaging either.

My impressions are the same.  The HP50 sounds too laid back, that lively genres like EDM/hiphop/etc sounds less exciting.  Thats why I got a MOE for those purposes.  I guess theres really no such thing as an all-rounder headphone

I bolstered up the ear cups with some speaker wire.  It is a soft plastic, round wire, about 5/16" diameter and 8" long. 

 

My ears are now comfortably enclosed in the ear cups, the bass is tighter and the sound stage opened up.  An all around improvement to the SQ in my opinion.


I found the earcups tended to squash/compress after a few months and decided to try this mod. - i used 2 core electrical manins cable in the absence of spare speaker wire and this is about the smae width size and worked perfectly - i found them more comfortable and the bass seems less boomy at times so a good result.

 

Thanks to peterinvan for the tip

Looking for a headphone for portable listening, I will be listening to house, hip hop, pop and rock.

Hp50
Focal spirit pro
B&w p7
M50x
Pro700mk2
Beats solo 2

Must be usable with no amp via my iPhone 6 plus. Any opinions would be appreciated.

STOP! Post your questions, "Help!", "Recommendations", "Looking for..." threads in the Help & Recommendations Forum not here.

 

Based on nature of your flurry of posts over the past few days, and your purchase and return of Senn 700s, it might be best for you to start in the help and rec area noted above.  In addition, do some basic research using the wealth of guides published by Jude and others located throughout the forum.

 

And I have never used amo with any of my i devices :D

If you don't mind the look and you're not a bass head then the hp50 is an excellent all rounder. If you want something with more bass, better looking and fairly good sound then the solo 2 is excellent.

If you think the NAD Viso HP-50 is very good, wait till you try the new Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7.

 

This new model unexpectedly is that good.

I have both the NAD and the technicas and I like the NADs better in many ways.
