Summary: Bought this PSB M4U2 for a few days now,, super happy and excited - bought it from a headphone store. ( Headphone Bar - w. boardway, Vancouver bc )
I always wanted a noise cancelling headphone with passive mode and uses batteries than stupid rechargeable ones.. and I have been doing my research and listing on headphones for a month before purchase and now my wish has come true + this headset has a amplifier mode ,, which makes the music sound lively and hearing the...
Pros: Very detailed and well balance + good enough punchy bass ( I love the amp mode ) Stylish ,,but bulky looking
Summary: I've owned the Sennheiser Momentums, B&W P7's, Ultrasone Edition 8's, and other mid-fi portable headphones but I prefer these in terms of sound quality only.
Why? These headphone's have such an organic/balanced representation of all the sound frequencies that it really sounds accurate/natural opposed to accurate/cold or overly colored.
Sennheiser Momentum: Dull/bloated bass response, overly thick midrange, and recessed high frequencies.
Summary: First, a disclaimer. My Head is of an above average size. 7 3/4 (XXL)
These headphones are very well made. In the world of plastic, it's nice to see headphones put together with metal and screws, though plastic is still heavily used. Because of this, they are heavy and ridged. The problem with this, is if you have a large head then they clamp uncomfortably to your head. Because of the stylized ear cups, you will find pressure on parts of your years.
Pros: Amazing active (NC off) sound quality. Full range response.
Cons: Not comfortable for long periods. Active NC has weird distrotions sometimes.
