  • Summary: I've owned the Sennheiser Momentums, B&W P7'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.
  • Pros: Natural Representation, Soundstage "Room-Feel Technology", Nice Midrange, Integrated Amplifier
  • Cons: Noise Cancelling Is not the best, very heavy, On-ear clamping pressure, plastic design, Slight grain in the treble, Bass-transient are not the best

M4U 2

Steve, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Heavy and tight on the head. Not as comfortable as other headphones I've used. Great sound quality, and built-in headphone amp is nice, but I'm still not sure they are worth the extra weight and money compared to the $40 Scosch in-ear buds that I love.
  • Pros: Great sound, built-in headphone amp, noise cancelling.
  • Cons: Heavy and tight on the head.

Great (ANC) headphones, but with some drawbacks

JulesK, Crutchfield
6 February 2013
  • Summary: These are sleeper headphones, in that they don't seem to get a lot of press and have fairly limited distribution, yet have outstanding performance in many ways. If you can live with the ergonomics, they provide outstanding sound quality, decent comfort, and a lot of versatility. They work well as noise-cancelling, travel headphones.
  • Pros: Great sound quality in Active mode, more than serviceable noise-cancelling ability when needed, versatile.
  • Cons: Bulky and heavy, somewhat polarizing styling. Electronics could be better shielded as you can get static in Active mode depending on what is nearby. Build quality had issues early on, and the cables could be more supple.

PSB M4U 2 Headphones

Anonymous, Crutchfield
28 January 2013
  • Summary: I give these a 4.8 because the noise cancel setting EQ's the sound to a markedly different response than the active and passive settings. The active setting sounds great when plugged into my portable music player (OK, my iPod) and personal opinion I'd say the passive sound is slightly above average. I have a decent set of headphones that sound much better in active setting; not different, just MORE of everything.
  • Pros: Fit, passive and active response and music reproduction.
  • Cons: Noise canceling reproduction, although I may rethink this after I fiddle with the music/sound source's EQ settings.
