PSB M4U 2 review


If you're not an audio hound, you may not have heard of PSB Speakers. The Canadian-based company isn't exactly a household name in the US like Blackberry is, but then again, look how that turned out. Flying slightly under the radar has worked pretty...

Excellent balance and instrumental separation ; Brilliant detail and dynamic expression ; Solid noise-cancelling ; Deep feature set ; Extremely comfortable

Not especially stylish ; A bit pricey

PSB’s M4U 2 is a superb example of a premium headphone that does almost everything right.

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 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.


Expert review by:



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 Speakers M4U 2


Uneasy lies the headphone that wears a big fat price tag.

"These are some of the best headphones I have."


These are some of the best headphones I have, and I have a lot. They sound great no matter what you through at them. From music to movies. (I plug then into my

Great for everything!

None that I have found.

Consumer review by:

"way overpriced, uncomfortable, ineffective, bad service"


You'd be crazy to buy these without trying them first.

I can't find anything that I like about this product or the company.

heavy, cancels bass sound by adding hiss sound, attachment broke, and the company was not interested in trying to fix the problem. Squeezes the head. Announcements from the cabin crew on airplanes is ear-splittingly loud!

"Best cans at 300$ price point.Suitable for all genres."


A must buy can for 300$ price point. Best cans at 300$ price point.Suitable for all genres viz., Classical, Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, RnB, Dub Step, Piano music, Unplugged, Trance, House, Electronic, Dance, Country etc.They are the only headphones to get all...

Excellent reproduction of sound that they make bad recording sound really.Passive noise isolation,you needn't listen to songs at full volume,35-50% vol is enough.Extra ear pads, detectable cable ,nice carrying case and cleaning cloth.

Had to spend all of my savings to buy these(cheaper against M4U2s),slightly uncomfortable(head-force)however afterwards one becomes used to. With the sonic quality they offer one forgets about the discomfort.1 yr warranty in India(2 in US/Canada).

"Superior Noise Canx Cans"


From the first moment I used these I could immediately tell that these headphones were clearly aimed at the upper end of what is quite a competitive market for noise cancelling headphones. You can tell straight away from even the quality of the...

Very loud tick when you have the amp turned on
