B

Bass & Sub Bass

The NAD VISO HP50 bass is full-sounding with mid-bass and sub-bass that offer proper punch and depth.

Their lower frequencies are not tuned to be a basshead headphone nor a bass-only sounding one, still their style is very energetic and fun as to cover almost every music genre’s bass requirements without falling short.

Applying an EQ results in a substantial deeper sub-bass and some extra mid-bass punch, making them a much more bass-centered headphone.

Mids & Vocals

The NAD VISO HP50 male vocals are gentle and warm with a non-aggressive tuning but that do not fall into distant nor muddy sound. Lower mids exhibit a bit of mid-bass bleed, yet there is not a huge amount of congestion on them.

Higher mids offer satisfactory crispness but do not get forward nor harsh.

Overall, their mids and vocals are mellow and absent of harshness.

An EQ can, radically, clear up their lower mids and male vocals making them much less congested and present sounding while higher mids can be pushed for some extra crispness – still no boxy nor tinny sounding mids will be introduced

Highs & Treble

The NAD VISO HP50 highs are sufficiently bright and resolve an acceptable amount of detail for normal listening. They are far from being the brightest nor the most detailed headphone that your money can buy but they will offer a reliable amount of both – as to fulfill relaxed music listening sessions.

Their highs are not overly recessed but are certainly not forward nor a treble-centered headphone. Due to this, they are not a fatiguing sounding headphone, with nearly no piercing peaks and mild sibilance.

Using an EQ there is a noticeable addition of brightness, also detail can be squeezed out of the NAD VISO HP50 with good results but some slight fatiguing peaks will show up.

Sound Leak

The sound leaking out of the NAD VISO HP50 is inline with most average headphones (slightly less). This means that their sound will be heard by nearby people when listening to music at anything above moderate-high.

SI

Sound Isolation

The sound isolation provided by the NAD VISO HP50 is very strong and way better performing than most normal headphones. This will allow listeners to listen to music at relatively a moderate volume and still get nearly-absolute isolation from their surroundings.

C

Comfort

The clamping force of the NAD VISO HP50 is strong but not excessive, providing a very secure fit. Their large cups with cushiony lush leather pads and it’s rounded, soft headband result in a superb experience regarding comfort.

Despite the full-sized dimensions, the NAD VISO HP50 is very light-weighted and comfortable.

Listeners can relax and enjoy endless listening sessions without having to worry about discomfort issues.
