I'm looking to buy my first set of headphones after many years of IEMs, my last pair being Shure SE846's. I have tested the PSB M4U2 and loved the sound with the amp turned on. I have also been reding reviews for the Nad HP50's, which sound like a great choice too.

 

Which phones would you say had the better overall sound?


Tough call...I never had the M4U 2, I had the M4U 1. I now have the NAD. I loved the sound on PSB and I love the sound on the NAD. There were a couple of reasons I exchanged. Main reason is vanity, I really like the look of the NAD better. Although neither are going to make a fashion statement. Some may think I am crazy but I think the PSB had a little bit better sound to my taste???? Flip a coin you will be happy with either..the PSB's are heavier but the weight was distributed ok(not great).

Thanks for that. I put an order in for the Nad's yesterday so now eagerly awaiting their arrival. If they're as good a sound as the PSB M4U's then I think I'll be in for a treat.

Hi Everyone,

Well I pulled the trigger on these after having some folks look at both the momentum and these. The reviews about the sound convinced me finally I am a big midrange and soundstage fan. I hope the treble is not too roled off for my taste and that i will be able to find a shoulder bag that fits these.

Hopefully have these tomorrow to give them a spin!

Greetings, Anouk,

Hello once more,

I need a dac/amp to pair with the hp50. I use my iphone when on the go and at home i have the audioengine a5+ speakers. So i need a small dac/amp to use with laptop and iphone. I was thinking about th emeridian explorer v2. That is portable and can work with ios albeit with apowered usb hub. The headphone output is however 5 ohm so that seems a bit high.

Are there any other recommendations htat work with laptop/ios that have a headphone output and lineout and have lower ohm headphone out?

Thanks,

Greetings, Anouk,

You might look at a FiiO product, not sure which one. Do you need a DAC? If it is portable use, how do you plan to override the DAC in your DAP? Not sure you can, but I could be wrong.

Got my set yesterday, they have a lovely balanced and airy sound. The cable is a bit short though, can anyone recommend a decent alternative cable please?

Hi,

Well my nad hp50 arrived today, pretty quick from denmark warehouse.

The headphone is actually not as large as i feared it might be. Although the cups dont really want to stay folded and the cable is flimsier than i thought it would be and i dont like that you dont get a tactical click when you volume up or down.

The sound is quite nice albeit a bit thinner then i thought it would be, i thought treble might be too muted for me but it i snot. Bass is also quite good.

Soundstage is very nice for a closed can.

I think these are just more neutral then what i am used to.

These have ample volume with y iphone 4.

I am a bit afraid of how much these might leak sound though. I dont listen at that loud volumes but hwen i have these in my hands with music playing i still can hear it. I will have to ask someone to listen for it when i have these on my head.

I am still curious how i might like the momentums overears so i might have to get these to compare but i would have to send one of them back.

Perhaps the momentums sound would be a bit warmer/fuller more exciting?

Greetings, Anouk,

Do you mean you're just holding them in your hands? If you want to get an idea of leakage, cover the cups with your hands, that's how I usually do it. When I've done that with my HP50s I find the leakage to be quite low, no way would it disturb anybody unless you had it stupidly loud.
