Hmmmm...I will have to do a comparison. I have let the T51p rest as of late.

 

Gee, I must have about 6 comparison requests I need to fulfill :eek:

I just got my HP50's today and may I say it sounds absolutely wonderful. Unfortunately I don't own any other headphones of similar type to do a comparison so I won't comment on the sound (I like it and that's all that matters :D)

 

Comfort wise, I believe they are excellent. They fit me rather well, the earpad size is fine and also its nice and soft, it's quite light and the headband is comfortable although there is a slight yet concentrated pressure at the top of my head (this may not go well with some people). Build quality wise they feel quite sturdy, the fit adjustment for the headband worked perfectly on mine.

 

For my first full sized headphone, they are awesome. Great for metal music.

Congrats on a great first choice!

Very interested in these.. Going to test these out against the momentums, K550 and some other closed headphones tomorrow and getting the ones I like best  =D

I'm interested in these as well.  It sounds like the ideal home theater headphone for me.

folks, anyone knows where to get these in St Louis? My friend is in the states and she can help me to get these... really cant wait for the local release.... please....

Thinking of getting these as my first nice set of closed headphones (need for college). Is the soundstage on these adequate for gaming? I've also read some complaints of the cord length, how long is it? I'd mostly be using it in my dorm with the cord wrapped around my monitor going behind the desk.

Dont know if they have them in stock, but i'd try the Apple store in the St Louis Galleria.

I ordered the new NAD VISO HP50 and also an open can (HiFiMAN HE-400) as my 2 new and first (serious) full sized headphones.

 

Somehow I couldn't find any specs on the NAD. To they need amping or at least profit from it?

How are they straight from an iPod, Android phone, DAP etc..

 

Thanks

They dont need amping. Portable headphones in general dont need amping. Sometimes it may make sense because your can - like the L1 - is without amping just not loud enough. With the NAD you can easily reach volumes that emulate Motörhead live concerts.

They are easy to drive and sound just fine from an Iphone.  As with most headphones, they will benefit from an amp, but it is not needed for listening volume.

Thanks for the answers. I made my choice after a lot of research here, and the innerfidelity wall of fame. 

It looks like I choose a closed can that sounds like an open one (is this true at all in your opinion?), and an open can that sound like a closed one lool

 

I got a feeling that in the end ill prefer the Grado Sr80i from alessandro that are on their way also

 

We will see :)

The cable without the remote is about 115cm, which is really incredibly short. You won't be able to wrap it round your monitor without having your face against the screen hehe. You'll need to get an extension cable, or just swap out the stock ones. Their cable terminates in a standard 3.5mm plug on the headphone side.

 

Only had them for a day so I can't give definitive comments about the soundstage yet.

Thanks. So if I were to buy them for a desktop set up I should get one of these?:

Erm, there's another thing i should've mentioned: the jacks on the headphones are recessed - this means that the plug on the cables that you buy needs to be slim, in order to fit into the recessed jack properly. The cable you linked there will likely not fit, as the body of the plug is thick.

 

I don't really know which specific cables will fit, maybe someone else here can give some suggestions? some possible candidates are the v-moda cables.

 

I dont think it should be a deal-breaker for you though, in any case you could just use a common extension with the included cable. Something like this -
