In every way IMO. You'll have to hear it to see it
The temptation continues.........
hi i'm considering these as are getting all the hype. I've never owned any IEM before as I always thought actually over ear headphones would give better SQ. I own a pair of NAD VISO HP50 so with that regard can you comment the comparison between the P1 and HP50 overall and from the lows to the mids to the highs. Sound stage and revealing details are important to me so please also comment on this between them if you can. Thanks!
I know, right?
Head-fi have done it again!
Screw you Head-fi!
*you will be alright me little wallet*
The torture is waiting for them to be available again before I pull the trigger. Now standing before them (and my wallet) is Canjam this weekend.
canjam = 100% wallet to 0%
Well, I was saving up for Ortofon EQ-8s, but these sound really tempting! If only I could try them both out side by side...
Nobody wins but my ears.
My pair just arrived at my local post office. Happy Face
I like the treble on P1, very crispy.
im waiting for mine TT
Staph! My wallet is crying!
I no longer own the hp50 but from memory the hp50 is a good bit bassier. That's why I say the P1 is harman target light. The hp50 was tuned with the harman target and I found it a bit too bassy to call neutral. IMO the P1 is more neutral than the hp50. My recollection is of the hp50 vocals being more intimate. This is likely due to the warmer nature of the hp50 and the slight dip at 1.5k for the P1. The P1 has better upper mid presence and I like female vocals and distortion rock guitars better on the p1. My memory is telling me the p1 treble is a bit crisper and a little more forward in presence. Regarding soundstage- headphones always seem to sound bigger but the p1 is more spacious within its own stage. It has more air and space between instruments and will sound more atmospheric with greater attention to low level ambiance queues. The hp50 sounded upfront and bold from my memory of it.
I hope that helps and maybe others can chime in with hp50 experience.
The e-q8 is a great single armature. Really awesome distortion rock guitars. Very upfront but head filling experience. If I could only choose one, I'd pick the p1 for being a better all rounder and better staging and spacial properties. But you can't go wrong with either, assuming the overall presentations fit your preferences.
Thanks for the heads up. Do you know if B&H is good with returns like Amazon? I just want an out in case they aren't what I'm looking for.
That would be nice. I hope it happens that way for me too.
