Let me just start by saying that these are currently the best sounding (active) noise cancelling headphones on the market at the moment bar none and I have had the fortunate chance to audition a lot of them (including Bose QC15, Parrot Zik, Sony MDR series) I have unfortunately not managed to listen to the Polk Audio UF8000 so have not been able to make a comparison.

I have had these cans for about 1-2 months with about 15-20hrs listening time on them and here are my thoughts. My source is either an iPad, Cowen J3, Linn DS or directly from a Macbook Pro.

I'll start with the cons first so that we can end on a sweet note.
- Firstly, these are large headphones and even when folded down, they are not exactly compact. A hard case is included which is roughly the size of a well stuffed toiletries bag.
- The battery compartment is very poorly designed and prone to popping open and doesn't look very sturdy. I have circumvented this problem by using a tiny bit of blu tac to keep the cover down.
- These are not feather weight headphones so don't expect to put them on and not feel any weight. However, I do not personally find them uncomfortable to wear and have managed 2-3 hours listening with no complaints.
- The noise cancellation is not the best in class. (The Bose QC15 is definitely much better but is far inferior when it comes to sound)

Now onto the good stuff.
- Excellent details with good sound staging.
- The sound signature of these cans are fairly neutral. That being said, they don't sound flat at all. The highs are well fleshed out without being too sibilant. The mids are smooth and roll off beautifully. The bass is well controlled and doesn't muddy or interfere the mids.

The PSB M4U-2's

+ Sound quality and EQ balance
+ 3 sound modes, though you really need to use the internal amp
+ Robust design (unlikely to snap headband like Bose)
+ Extra wear parts included
- Not quite big enough for all head types
- Cable design is amateur
- Folded size still huge
- Fit/finish has minor issues

Best part (Sound Quality):

The most talked about thing on these headphones is the sound quality, and to be honest, it's the best I've heard out of noise cancelling headphones. I've had the fortune in my job of being able to sample a lot of different high end systems and while these won't touch the sound quality of a well amp'd open air sennheiser, they stack up at the top of all of the noise cancelling headphones for two reasons. The first is the focus on clarity, which PSB has achieved through a well matched internal amp and speaker pairing. The second major reason is the generally flat EQ, and this is where usual noise cancelling headphones fail. PSB didn't artificially pump up the bass (beats, bose) or try to match some model of what people think sounds nice (bose). It's clear that they just went for clear, balanced, sound... even with the ANC turned on, which is a welcome change. I had a couple of people around the office try these vs. the sennheiser pxc450's that I was replacing and everyone, even without knowing what they were listening for, identified the PSB's as the clear winner for "better sound". This was a bit ranty, but the sound quality is really the reason to buy the headphones.

Nitpicky things:

1. They aren't quite big enough for large heads. I have them on the max extension and it's just barely big enough for my "large" helmet size head.

I am writing this review, the first I have ever written, because I almost didn't try these amazing headphones due to the poor reviews on this site. The amazing reviews in the press and other sites convinced me to give these headphones a whirl.
When I finally decided to get a decent pair of headphones, my first pair over $120, I did a lot of research. I looked at hundreds of professional and consumer reviews. This narrowed my headphone list to the Sennheiser Momentums, V Moda M-100, Bowers & Wilkins P5, and the PSB M4U-2's. Note tgst most of these have a slight, if not extreme, base tilt. While I was able to listen to the other phones (among dozens of other headphones) in local shops, no one had the PSB's. One local dealer ordered some PSB's for me to try. While initially they didn't do much for me, after I played them overnight to let them burn in, they sounded absolutely amazing the next morning. The sound is well balanced with a slight base emphasis. While I am used to more base, the base on these phones is so deep and tight (precise) that I am thouroughly satisfied. I did a back to back comparison of these and the B&W P5's snd it was like going from 2D to 3D. The one drawback with these phones is that you will hear so much more detail. Some live recordings aren't as enjoyable anymore because of all the background noise that was blended over with bloated notes in my $1100 home Bose system and "premium" car system. The detail and crispness of theses phones was shocking to me. I hear beautiful subtltes in my eclectic music collection that I have never heard before. I have had no comfort issues with them and I wear glasses.
As other reviews state, there is a very slight hiss when the amp is turned on. However, I only hear it when the music is not playing.
