NAD Electronics has unveiled the latest edition to its VISO headphone range – the on-ear VISO HP30. Featuring NAD’s RoomFeel™ technology, which combines “unprecedented sound NAD_HP30_Lying-Down_Red_Medaccuracy with the aural spaciousness normally associated with listening to a pair of high-quality loudspeakers in a great listening room”.

The VISO HP30 on-ear, closed-back design includes an internally damped acoustic chamber and  Ultra-low mass, high excursion 40mm drivers featuring neodymium magnets.

The ear cups are attached to the aluminium headband, and soft foam ear pads perfectly conform to the ear for a nice seal to isolate sound and provide long-term comfort. When not in use, the VISO HP30’s clever folding system and included custom-designed carry case make them easy to stow away.

RoomFeel involves calibrating the chamber design on both sides of the driver and adjusting the corresponding target response curve, which can be ‘tuned’ to get the desired response. Getting the correct ‘transfer function’ ensures accurate sound reproduction with natural aural spaciousness and balance as if listening to a pair of high-quality loudspeakers in a room. In addition, every VISO HP30 driver is individually calibrated, then matched as pairs within an extremely tight tolerance to the reference response.

“The HP30s extend our NAD VISO headphone range and we are delighted with the results. We believe that our RoomFeel technology implemented into the VISO HP30 proves again that headphone listening can be just as involving and enjoyable as listening to a great HiFi system in the home,” states Greg Stidsen, Director Technology and Product Planning at NAD. “The added bonus is that it makes the experience that little bit more personal. I think that anyone who loves music is going to love the HP30s.”

Available in three high gloss colours, Black, Red, or White, the NAD VISO HP30 comes with its own neoprene travel case, two detachable tangle-free cords – one standard and one Made for iPhone in-line remote control and microphone – and ¼” stereo and airplane adaptors.
