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 Feel™ 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.
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.

Audio quality is good, but for the price range not great value. I'd consider them as being very slightly better than Sennheiser 280s, which are much cheaper. For the price these go for, you could get some Beyerdynamic DT 770s, which I would consider much better than these PSBs.
There are some nice features here: the being able to switch the cord between sides is handy, although the provided cord is also too short to be practical for some uses. Overall, this is a flashy but not very comfortable pair of headphones, and you can get more for your money.
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.
