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.
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.

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?
The sound of these headphones is excellent. It really is. Excellent bass response that goes very low, and nice highs with a good amount of sparkle. The mids/mid-highs set back a little in the mix. They are present, just laid back. These headphones basically have a slight "V-shaped" frequency response. I find the low mids (300-500hz) a little too much for my taste, so slight eq (less than -1dB reduction) solves it for me. Great sounds for the money, no doubt.
These isolate very well. As a test for leakage, I listened to music at a decent volume, sitting next to my wife who was watching a movie, and it didn't bother her. I also couldn't hear her, or her movie, unless I didn't have any music playing.
15/20 min into listening, and I notice the primary problem: Clamping force. Holy cow batman. Imagine a small child pressing their hands against the outside of your favorite headphones, against your head. At first, you may not notice a problem, and then you start realizing the sides of your head/ears start to ache. After 30-40 minutes, i couldn't take it anymore. I tried over and over for days, hoping the clamping pressure would let up, but it hasn't. I have an average sized adult male head. I have experience with some other headphones, a few that had some initial minor discomfort (Grado ear pads for instance). These take the cake on discomfort for me.
It's the one reason I am planning to return them, which is so frustrating, because I love the audio. If you have a smaller head, I imagine you'll get addicted to these headphones.
However, I am not so sure they are BUILT better than Beats or Bose.
As much as I love these headphones, I don't use them very often. So imagine my surprise after 5 months of very infrequent use, one of the headphones fell off the headband right at the hinge.
PSB requires that you go through the vendor for any returns, so I called Audio Advisor and requested an RMA. They were quick to answer and quick to respond.
Hopefully the headphones that I get back will last longer than 5 months.
