Nope, they are highly efficient. However, if you feed them from a better source, they improve.

Correct on both counts!

Definitely, highly efficient :D

They are designed for portable use in terms of efficiency, not in terms of size or appearance IMO.

To NAD's credit, it says right on the box they don't care about my lifestyle, they care about sound, to which i think they've succeeded.

Why don't you bend the headband a bit? I'm pretty sure you could obtain better results...

...also, the pads don't appear to be replaceable. :(

As others have noted, these are really efficient 'phones, they also come with a mic'd cable which is designed for smartphone use (amps aren't compatible with the mic portion, but should run fine).  So a phone is sufficient enough.  As with most headphones, a different source/amp can make a big difference.  

 

Their weight also helps them loads as well.  This is actually one of the things it has over the P7 in terms of portability.  The P7 have some weight to them compared to the HP50 (from memory).

To be honest, your head shape doesn't help that much either...

 

Headband wasn't too flexible IMO.  The Square headband is a little rare, but I don't mind the look.

Honestly, these sound too good to care about the shape when it's worn. Have some pride; embrace your inner audiophile knowing what's on your head slays the majority of what people listen to on the streets. :)

+1, definitely worth it. I just need to save a little bit more. Did anybody get to remove the pads? Is it even possible?

Nice, that definitely leaves some room for pad experimenting. Stock pads are annoying in my opinion.

They can't be worse than the Momentum...

They are completely different. The Momentum have smaller pads but my ears sit better inside them. I found them comfier. The NAD have bigger pads but my ears touch the driver, which is very uncomfortable for me. It's a matter of preference. I would search for a thicker pad if I were to get them.

They're both on-ears for me. lol I did like the feel of the HP50s better.

Yeah, it depends a lot on the size of your ears as well. I have really small ears. That's why momentum feels better.
