B&W P7 vs NAD VISO HP50 - Page 4

post #46 of 89
Hi Everyone--

I would love to hear anyone else's comments regarding these two cans' comfort. I have a large head, and always have comfort issues with closed cans.

I can actually get the B&W $55 cheaper so I'm leaning toward them.

I listen to a range of music, inc a lot of metal, will use them movies and gaming, and guitar playing.

I currently love the comfort of my hd598, but want something closed.

The hd598 is pretty nice. I demoed it side-by-side next to the B&W P7 at best buy. Didn't have any comfort issues during my short demo listening, but usually comfort issues only pop up after you wear em all day-ish.

 

I really liked the AKG K545 when I was demoing headphones at best buy. Maybe another option to look into.

They won't be as comfortable as the HD598s, but I've had no issues wearing my P7s for 2-3 hours at a time. I had some clamping force issues in the beginning, only because I was wearing them as on-ears...until I found I can actually get my biggish ears in them. SQ-wise though, the P7s get my vote. To my ears, they are a fun set of headphones!

Thanks, guys!

Yes, I think a long demo is in order. Glad to hear these are comfortable for those of us with big heads and ears, which is why I won't go for the momentums.

HP 50 may sound great, but for an on the go all purpose phone, I would not want to be seen in public wearing these squarish things. Would rather rock the Momentum

Looks and sound matter equally for me out in public. At home, sound and comfort matter most

Just goes to show you that the sound did not overcome the way it looks. tongue.gif

What are your opinions? Which one should have the title?

 

I know Tyll loves the NAD VISO HP50, so I´m the most interested in that one and the RoomFeel feature interests me ´cause I´m also a speaker / studio monitor guy, but you never know with headphones. I´ve been trying out some other headphones Tyll liked, like the UE9000/6000, but they were just awful (bloated bass and very dark/muffled treble). But then again with many other headphones I agree with Tyll´s reviews.

 

So please give me some valuable insight, since I can´t audition these anywhere. Would appreciate it! I like a neutral sound, like Stax SR-009. But I also like some bass, not over bloated, can be slightly more than the Stax, but fine also with the amount of Stax bass. I like more low bass (under 150Hz), not the muddy upper bass (150-300Hz). But I want clear and smooth mids and treble, not dark.

 

Couple things I should mention also. The Sennheiser Momentum bass amount is already too much bass for me. HD 650 bass amount is fine, but they are very muffled in treble. Also LCD-2 is too muffled. One contender is also the new LCD-XC, but it´s a bit out of my price range at the moment and I´m afraid it doesn´t have enough treble that is the "warm Audeze signature sound", but I don´t know if they have increased it for their new headphones. But I have the LCD-2 and I´ve tried the LCD-3 and they are just too dark for me.



The P7 has more bass in my opinion, it doesnt sound AS GOOD as the P5 for some reason, maybe because the way of the two design. Also the Momentum is more comfortable to me, the P7 pinch my molar and it just annoying, after a while it start to get hurt.

Nad Hp50 vs ZMF t50rp  anyone compared them ?

post #56 of 89
The P7 pluged into my e11 sounds like between the hd600 hd650 the audio Technica 50 for the bass but a little better for my ear
the hd800 for color over sound and even grados headphones for that some smoth in the highes
in short, the P7 is a close headphones but acts like open with like taken the goods from lots of audio hifi brands and entwin to one
I never had the honor to hear the Nads headphones or the b&o and comper them

As for the senn's momentum i had heard them .. nothings special
they are good but sometimes the bass was to me muddy the P7 play very well and uniqe
post #58 of 89
I love the Momentum. I own two of them. One I've had for a year, one I've had for a couple months. The one I've had for a year sounds a little bit better, but the other one is starting to catch up as it burns in.I prefer HD 600 and 598 for classical, but the Momentums are quite capable all arounders. With mediocre files, they can sometimes drown in their own richness, but they sound awesome with 320 mp3 and up.

Have not had time with the P7, but the P5 and P3 were good.

The PSB 2 was very good, sounding as good as the Momentum. I did not care for the u shaped lower fidelity sound of the Momentum on ear.

The hd650 way better then the hd600 for my ears/taste
has more bass and deep sound the hd600 preform like a studio headphones for use mostly
the hd800 were perfect but the bass was light for me
the px100ii is very good to go with but the hd229 is AMAZING thats for my senn's collection
im looking for a good amp for the P7 any recomends ?
And how are they going to preform on Tube amps someone knows?
