HP50 was very positively reviewed once. It was indeed a good portable option back in 2013-2015. I still have 2 of those HP50s lying around somewhere :)
HP70 however is not a wireless HP50! Despite what NAD marketing wants you to believe, the two models sound nothing alike. HP70 has no sub-bass. Low end is there in quantity, but unlike the HP50, it lacks definition. Mids sound hollow and distant with typical Bluetooth-brittle highs. Don't take my word for it, just google around old HP70 reviews.
In any case, it's Oct 2020. The portable headphone market has moved on... and so should you.
Just for clarity's sake, the HP70 is not a 2013 product. You're describing the age of it's predecessor. There is an advantage to buying 2020 era Bluetooth headphones and that is in the area of codecs. **EDIT to remove statement about lack of AAC** Most newer phones now have a somewhat fuller suite of higher quality codecs.
Great! I was going by Steve Gutenberg's review on CNET. He was complaining about using SBC with iphone. That makes it a good deal for people with i devices, too. I LOVE the design! If I hadn't ordered an B&W PX last night I would have jumped on these.
