PSB M4U 1 headphones review:

 

Sometimes in the electronics world two comes before before one.

The PSB M4U 1 offers excellent, clean, and accurate sound. The headphones fit comfortably and come with both a "plain" cable and one that has an integrated one-button remote and microphone for making cell-phone calls. A nice carrying case and an extra...

Like most hinged headphones, the M4U 1's hinges might pose long-term reliability concerns. The headphones high performance can make poorly recorded and compressed music (MP3s) sound worse.

The PSB M4U 1 delivers first-class audiophile sound at home or on-the-go with your mobile device.

PSB M4U 1

 

In 2012, PSB, primarily known for its speakers, introduced its first ever headphone , the active noise-canceling PSB M4U 2 . It was hailed by many critics, including CNET, as one of the world's best NC models.

PSB M4U 2 Noise Cancelling Headphones

 

PSB is one of the latest speaker companies - joining the likes of Focal, B&W, Velodyne, and Paradigm - to jump into the booming headphone arena. In this review, we take a close look at their M4U Over-the-Ear Headphones.

PSB M4U 2 review:

 

PSB Speakers' new $399.99 M4U 2 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones may be the company's very first pair of headphones, but the engineers' smart design choices and superior sound put the M4U 2s at the head of the pack. They're fairly compact for a...

The PSB Speakers M4U 2 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones have really comfy earpads, keep working even after the batteries have drained, and sound great.

The M4U 2s are a bit more expensive than most top-of-the-line noise-canceling headphones.

The PSB Speakers M4U 2 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones combine above-average noise cancellation with excellent sound quality that's well worth the price for dedicated audiophiles looking to eliminate ambient noise.

PSB M4U2 review

 

Full-bodied, powerful and exciting, these headphones are superb travel companion

Exciting, engaging sound Big, powerful sound Flexible listening modes Punchy bass Clean, clear midrange Folding design

Slightly bulky for travel

With more than two years since their launch, many products would be starting to show signs of age, but with the PSB M4U2s, that’s simply not the case. They’re as exciting and engaging as ever, and can’t fail to score the full five again.

PSB M4U2 review

 

The PSB M4U2s have bumped the Bose QuietComfort 15s out of our Top Ten list of best headphones in style. Let's get the negatives out of the way: they aren't as light or comfortable as the Boses. But they're comfy enough, perfect for shutting out the...

PSB M4U 1

 

An upbeat, unfussy pair of headphones that should find many fans

Clean, lively treble ; Energetic sound

Sound loses composure at high volume

From the brooding tones of The Dead Weather to cheesy ’90s pop tunes, it’s the willingness to get the best out of a recording that makes these PSBs so appealing.
