Just OK - Costs too much for just OK

ScottM, Crutchfield
1 February 2013
  • Summary: The sound was OK. The sound stage is fairly transparent and airy but the bass is almost nonexistent. The noise reduction does two things badly: It reduces the nonexistent bass to well less than that while at the same time reducing the amplification of the mids and highs that are left. Additionally, my pair made an almost imperceptible high pitch whine and that got annoying fast.
  • Pros: The spectrum of sound created by these may be pretty narrow but what there is sounds darn good and is not at all tiresome to the ear. They are very solidly built and quite comfortable.
  • Cons: The price is too much for just OK sound and crummy noise cancelling. The Ziks are a much better unit all together.

Don't Believe The Hype

Larry B, Crutchfield
18 December 2012
  • Summary: I held on to my PSB M4U 2 headphones for a few weeks. During that time I had the opportunity to travel with these headphones. I found the noise cancelation to be virtually nonexistent. I admit the sound quality is pretty good, but so is the sound of my $199.00 Sony's. I'm returning the PSB M4U 2's and opting for the Bose QC 15's with also good sound but with actual noise cancelation .
  • Pros: Good sound
  • Cons: Nonexistent noise cancelation

Uncomfortable with a surprising issue

Kevin, Crutchfield
3 October 2012
  • Summary: These headphones sound incredibly good. As close to perfection as I've ever heard. The noise cancellation works very well. But the things just squeeze me head a little too much. My ears aren't particularly large, nor do they protrude too far from my head, but the ear pads pressed against the lower back cartilage in my ears such that I couldn't make it through a 2 hour flight (and my ears ached for about an hour afterward).
  • Pros: Increidible sound, solid noise cancelling.
  • Cons: Uncomfortable, comically large case, flaky connector.

Good, Not Great

BigMac, Crutchfield
2 September 2012
  • Summary: I'll be honest, I was expecting more from these headphones. I know there have been many rave reviews by audiophiles and consumers alike but for me these headphones just didn't wow me like I thought they would. For one, the headphones are comfortable but my ears get hot quickly and cannot wear them for more than an hour before having to remove them. Secondly, the sound is good but not impressive.
  • Pros: Quality Build Comfortable Flexible Configurations
  • Cons: Average Sound Quality Ears get hot quickly

Good headphones, lousy manual, worse support

seth, Crutchfield
22 April 2012
  • Summary: It comes with two cables, but the manual doesn't explain which is which or why. The manual reminds me of Ikea, lots of vague pictures, not much help. No phone number on the manual, but the website will tell you. Then you get a voicemail system that doesn't offer customer support. Persist! Finally reached a human, who connected me with a gruff guy who hadn't seen the product and didn't have a manual. He basically told me to pound sand.
  • Pros: Sound good
  • Cons: Company isn't ready to sell a product like this yet

Beat It !!

Jmo, Crutchfield
13 April 2012
  • Summary: It took me a while to figure out what headphones to buy, the reviews, web video's, going to stores, really not wanting to spend $300 + bucks , but when. I saw PSB's I knew I was going to get something just a bit better then the beats, souls and Bose. Well my first impressions and first thoughts are I made the right choice. They are really comfortable !! And made well they don't feel cheep or over plasticky. They sound really great, true not hyped.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Great sound, good style, quality
  • Cons: Expensive !!!
