After one week of use I think I'll sell the NAD VISO HP50
I bought them for several reasons: Inner Fidelity Wall of Fame, the name NAD, the Room Feel Technology, and some reviews...
Couldn't listen to them before purchase..
I agree that they sound very neutral and accurate, but I need a portable headphone and for this purpose these simply don't make it for me.
- they don't look good on me, make my head looks like a square
- they don't isolate very good
- they leak a lot
- they are too neutral for my tase
I can't confirm that they're uncomfortable. They are very comfy for me, and the thin headband doesn't bother me. Also on longer listening sessions these won't hurt my head.
But they don't sit too good on my head, meaning that I often find myself readjusting them back and forth.
I have an impression that neither of the often compared headphones here in this thread will suite my need, since they sound more or less similar....momentum etc...
Maybe a V-Moda m100 will do the job, I dont' know.
I need something more fun, but still high SQ and highly detailed.
Something for mobile use, so no MrSpeaker etc..
Have an portable amp, so no problem if it needs amping
The V-Moda M-100 is very detailed and the sound quality is impressive but comfort-wise is horrible (didn't get to try the XL pads though) and they are extremely bassy, like 8db boost in the bass. Very V-shaped signature with recessed mids. I used to EQ them all the time. If you are into EQ'ing and can stand them on your head, go for them.
