In my opinion, the mids tend to roll off pretty quick as well. The fit is snug and although heavy, the leather cushion provides a really comfortable fit. I have heard really fantastic reviews of the NAD HP50, but i haven't tried it yet as I cant find a set here in the Philippines, so I can't really give out an opinion. Here's hoping it'd be available here soon.

There already is a seller of hp50 in Philippines: search and try techshop28. I already got one from them this xmas, for php12000.

I like the NAD/B&W P7, can anyone contrast them in SQ/sound signature to a basic modded Fostex T50rp?

(or the Focal Spirit Professional)

Not sure about a basic mod but I owned a ZMF Vibro for a while. The P7 has much more subbass presence and less mids. Soundstage similar size, both large for a closed headphone. The P7 lagged behind in naturalness and transparency.

Just can´t understand why? I´ve listened to´em twice, and it´s just a fact that MOMENTUM (and P7) sounds a lot better than NAD. Particularly when you pump up the volume = DANCE DANCE;)

that just means you prefer a v-shaped sound signature over the more neutral presentation of the NAD. hard to talk about subjective bests when we all have difference sound signature preferences. when talking about 'best' ppl are generally referring to sound quality attributes (like detail retrieval, soundstage, imaging, speed... etc) + a neutral-orientated sound sig. when talking about how much a pair of headphones makes you want to dance, that usually depends on a bass quantity emphasis. v-shaped sound sigs are extremely fun & do make you wanna bustta move ;)

 

I personally do think the P7 is a tad bit overpriced compared to the competition for what it brings to the table, but it is still a nice headphone. if you demoed it yourself & greatly enjoyed it, don't let other ppl's random opinions dissuade you.
