Product Description

Color: Black

PSB took its 40 years of sonic expertise designing loudspeakers and packed it into the M4U 1 high performance headphones, which offer PSB's exclusive Room FeelTM technology. The M4U 1 provides the same musicality as the award-winning M4U 2 headphones, but without their amplification or Active Noise Cancelling circuitry. The M4U 1s were named the 'Best $300 Headphone' by Geoffrey Morrison and a panel of judges at The Wirecutter magazine.

Enjoy "Room Feel" in a Headphone
For at-home or on-the-go listening, these passive mode headphones are designed to give you the experience of Room Feel for a more true-to-nature sonic experience that doesn't take anything away from the musical performance - but without all the fuss. Just put them on and enjoy. No batteries or switches necessary. Just pure, simple sound.

Extended Comfort
Listen longer in extra comfort. The ergonomic ear pads are gyro-suspended and self-adjusting to give you a precise fit. They also naturally isolate your music from the outside world. The lightweight and extremely soft replaceable ear pads allow you to lose yourself in those extended listening sessions. The expandable headband also adjusts easily for a more customized fit.

Lightweight and Ready to Go
On a train, on a plane, from your computer to your bedroom, PSB headphones are lightweight and ready to pack up anywhere you want to go. Fold 'em up into the protective travel case and you'll never be far from true hi-fi listening. Two tangle-free cords are included, one standard and the other featuring an in-line remote to play, pause, or skip music. This cable also includes a microphone to take calls from iPhone or Blackberry. Other accessories include a protective travel case, extra ear pads, a microfiber cleaning cloth, a 1/4" stereo adaptor, and a dual input flight adaptor.

Very good sound quality.
Timm K.
They look fairly big but better than I thought, if you're spending this much money on headphones, you gotta be proud of them and enjoy your music, that's it.
littlecolombia
By themselves, the soundstage is more expansive, with clarity across bass, mids, and trebles without being overly boomy or sibilant.

I needed a closed pair of headphones to use during late-night listening sessions, when my wife and daughter are asleep, and where my (VERY) open-backed Grado PS500's leaked too much sound. The Grado's are amazing, and had they made a closed headphone, they could simply sign me up. So I began a journey to find the ideal audiophile closed headphone, which would also isolate noise effectively in a passive way, and ideally be portable. I tried the Beyerdynamic DT1350, great treble, punchy bass, and good mids. It just wasn't as "FUN" as I was looking for. Additionally, it got uncomfortable being supra-aural on sitting on the ear. I also tried the VModa M100, as I had read it was more accurate than their previous offerings. Ok, it is incredibly built, military grade even. But it was just still too colored for me, adding bass in places that didn't need it, and overpowering the mids. The treble was fairly good, but a little rolled off at the limits. Next I tried the Sennheiser Amperior. This is a good headphone, and many will like it. I thought the highs were a bit zazzy and hot, especially with "S" and "T" sounds. Of course, the source was critical, and the better the quality of the file, the better the output. I just couldn't put my finger on why I didn't want to keep them, but the clamping force was the deciding factor. Throughout this search of trial and error, I came across several glowing reviews for the PSB M4U 2's, which featured active noise cancelling. I had never been a huge fan of the way added electronics altered the sound quality and transparency of these types of headphones, but many respected audio publications said they were different. Then I read that PSB had recently released a new model without the active noise cancelling.Read more ›

I spent weeks looking for a pair of closed-back headphones that would work well in a noisy office environment. I finally decided on these and couldn't be happier.

I tried the Sennheiser Momentum, AKG 550, AKG 551 and Audio Technica ATH-M50s. In short:

Sennheiser: Beautiful craftsmanship but only if you have newborn baby-sized ears. I have completely normal sized ears and these were excruciatingly uncomfortable. It's amazing to me that so much thought can be put into a product but completely miss on something as seemingly obvious as this.

AKG: I really wanted to love these but in the end found them too harsh and not a great value. For $250 you get the cans in a cardboard box. That's pretty much it. The 551s rip out the nice cord on the 550s and replace it with the world's crappiest looking microphone. Very comfortable, just didn't like the sound much at all.

Audio Technica: Great all around and cheaper, but in the end the PSBs just sounded better.

I love the sound. I love the case, all the accessories, the mic is handy on occasion. I can wear them for hours and they're comfortable (once you get used to the clamping force). My lone complain is the glossy finish (though a microfiber cloth is included!). I don't know why companies continue to make glossy black plastic that shows every single fingerprint. But, when they're on my head, doin' their thing, I can't see them anyway, so who cares?

Let's start with the packaging - very Apple-esque - in fact i have the box sitting in a display cube next to my desk
Comes with a really cool hard clamshell carrying case with pockets for included accessories (1/4 adaptor and airplane adapter)
The aesthetics on these cans are interesting. It's a plastic sort of laquer which would make you think it's going to break easily but it's extremely sturdy and give the cans a really cool futuristic look. They strike the perfect balance between fashion foward without being garish like Beats typically are.
Now on to the good stuff- the sound from these are very impressive. Excellent channel separation, great sound isolation, and clear and tight across the entire frequency range. Bass is very impressive for those that listen to EDM and Hip-Hop. Since I am mostly an indie rock listener I am going after the mids which are usually tough to get right but the PSB's hit them dead on.
The ear pads are plush and don't make your ears sweat. I do notice a very minimal amount of discomfort when wearing for over 4 hours but that's to be expected and taking a 10 minute break alleviates this issue.
My setup is Windows 8 + MusicBees (directsound) out playing mainly FLAC or 320 ogg vorbis streams from Spotify outputted via USB to Schiit Bifrost DAC + Magni headphone amp.
Like any higher end can's / IEM's you are wasting your money unless you have a good DAC in your chain.
Very happy with these. My next upgrade will be to the LCD-2's when I win the lottery :)

Using this only for computer audio listening. Plugged into Audioquest Dragonfly, the sound is very detailed and balanced, with no overemphasis anywhere in the audioband. Very good sound quality. Even lowly MP3s (256 and 384 kbps) sound great. With lossless rips from CD, I have not heard other phones for the price that are better with the Dragonfly. Earcups and the 'phones overall are supremely comfortable and provide good isolation on planes/in airports.

Honestly, the Dragonfly/M4U 1 combo is so good, I find it hard to pick a winner between this and my "real" headphone setup (AKG K701 with Violectric HPA V100 headphone amp) when playing the same source material. Although the AKGs are even more comfortable to me and just may sound a bit "airier" (they're open-back, after all). But with the recent pricedrop on the Dragonfly (sells for $200 now), the Dragonfly/M4U 1 combo costs about a quarter of what the AKG/Violectric set me back (once the Cambridge DacMagic and interconnects needed for the latter combo are factored in).

Also, these are sensitive enough to be driven directly (w/o portable headphone amp) sufficiently loudly by my HTC Amaze and Nexus 7 (2013), though volume levels on both devices are basically almost (HTC) or fully (Nexus) turned up.
