??? I don't think it's what TMRaven meant. In the video that has Jude and Paul Barton in it and also the one at innerfidelity with Tyll, Paul Barton talks of how he (or they) worked hard on making a good structure inside the drivers so that the sound does not get messed up the way that TMRaven said can happen.

Also, no space is still something to think of when making closed-backs I believe compared to a open-back design.

Heck, even open backs' metal mesh or whatever is put behind makes a difference (much like loudspeaker damping I guess (room treatment?)).

I'm saying the NAD drivers are way different because it only throws/leaks sound forward (towards ears), not forward and back like regular dynamic and ortho drivers. So it really is like regular speakers. So it doesn't get affected as much by being closed or open backed like the regular drivers. I think this is why it's so realistic and natural, and similar to speakers.

For anyone looking at best synergy with the NAD HP50, try the iFi nano iDSD. Just great. Really great. Had the time to really use the two critically and they just sound wonderful together with the iPhone 6 Plus and Onkyo HD Player app.

Ever tried them with the Chord Hugo Diamondears?

No, not yet. Looking forward to demoing it when I go abroad. Can't find any in my location. Too expensive, moreso without hearing it first. When I get bored on my current gears, would certainly consider it, though it looks like that's still too far away. What I have now are quite excellent. Back when I was considering the Hugo, I ended up buying HPs. I think it's my Audiolab that makes it redundant for me. Then for portable I have the iFi stuff, including the iFi micro iDSD, which many finds equally good if not better.
