Phenomenal Headphones with Incredibly Detailed Soundstage!

SteveJaws, Crutchfield
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I have had the chance to audition several pairs of headphones over the past two years ranging in price from $35 to $1,500. Having seen many reviews of the M4U2 headphones including Sound & Vision's 2012 "Product of the Year" award, I was very anxious to try the M4U1's when they were released from PSB.
  • Pros: Unparalleled Dynamic Sound Quality! Comfort.
  • Cons: Absolutely None!

Excellent, Natural Sounding Audiophile Cans

Lawdog, Crutchfield
26 December 2013
  • Summary: The PSB M4U 1 is an excellent audiophile headphones set. My wife did a lot of research on quality headphones in this price range and landed here. I am very happy. They are very comfortable on my head - snug, but not too tight. Having said that, I have note yet worn them for more than a few minutes at a time at this point. The sound is extremely pure and neutral. I would say "balanced." If you are looking for a bass emphasized sound, there may be better options.
  • Pros: Excellent neutral sound, comfort, extra ear pads, selectable cord plug-in location
  • Cons: No Noise Cancelling if desired

PSB M4U 1 Review

Mancy, Crutchfield
19 December 2013
  • Summary: I am currently using these with my computer and I will give an updated review once my dac/amp arrive. Even with using onboard audio I have noticed an audibly better experience versus my other pair of headhpones, Steelseries Siberia V2. I am not bashing the V2's as I still use them for gaming but I hope this review will help people who come from the same background as me, one who uses their computer for everything(gaming, movies/tv and music).
  • Pros: Sound quality is great. Can distinguish individual instruments in my favorite songs and I have noticed sounds I never knew existed before. Delivers a balanced sound. When you are listening to your favorite albums, lying on the floor with no other distractions you will see what I mean.
  • Cons: Only con so far is the comfort factor if you were to use these for extended gaming sessions. The way I use these headphones for listening to music (lying on the floor, just focusing on my music) they are PERFECTLY fine. If I were to play 3 games of Dota 2 straight or hammer out some Dishonored however, I would prefer my V2's.

User Review

12 December 2013
  • Summary: PSB M4U 1: A New Standard is Born               Intro          I am quite sure that many of you, myself included, have started on the seemingly never ending path to finding the perfect set of headphones. Terms such as too bright or too dark, mid-bass hump and recessed midrange, peaky treble and accentuated sibilance, are enough to drive a sane consumer mad. Or at the very least an unnecessary waste of one’s hard earned money.
  • Pros: Accurate, natural sound filled with great energy and resolve.
  • Cons: Nothing that comes to mind, but nothing is perfect either; There is always room for improvements.
