Amazon is still selling the red version of the NAD VISO HP50 for $149 new.

I never found them comfortable, the pads were much too small for my ears. Sound was fine.

The NAD Viso HP50 (red version) is down to $150 at Amazon. Great sound, with a warm tone. Excellent mids. Removable cable.

Those are the pluses. On the down side, the pads are small and they look pretty strange when worn.

NAD Viso HP50 is a warm toned headphone, with great overall sound, but a very funky looking build. Currently $150 for the red version at Amazon.

Beyerdynamic Custom Studio, or the DT 770 Pro (80 ohm) are two more to consider. Might be borderline on needing an amp, depending on how good your PC audio is.

Hey all,

I have a question. I was looking at the NAD HP50s. (https://www.amazon.com/NAD-Electronics-NADHP50RED-VISO-HP50/dp/B00FA4XS8W)

Does anyone know why the Red pair is so much cheaper than the others? Is it a different build or something?

Edit: Im looking to replace the ones I have that broke and want to make sure before I ordered them.

Not sure if this is just a good deal, or a prime day deal, but the NAD VISO HP50 in Red is $149 right now. I love this headphone, and grabbed it when it dropped to $249 a while back and felt it was a good value then. At $149 its a steal.

Don’t get wireless headphones. You get lower sound quality for more money.

See if you can try on the NAD Viso HP50 somewhere. The sound is excellent, they come in black, red and white cups, detachable cable (with standard 3.5mm jacks at both ends), good isolation. Can be easily driven by phones and are pretty light. The sound is rather neutral with a warm tint and the soundstage is very good (listen to Yosi Horikawa’s “Bubbles” or “Letter”, see what kind of room it seems recorded in, compared to other headphones).

They’re supposed to be comfortable with glass-wearers. Can’t vouch 100% for this because each individual has different ear size and glass frame thickness, either try them on or buy from somewhere with good return policy. FWIW they’re compatible with the HM5 velour pads, which are kinda famous for offering amazing comfort, so they can be further improved if they need it.
