PSB M4U 1

 

An upbeat, unfussy pair of headphones that should find many fans

Clean, lively treble ; Energetic sound

Sound loses composure at high volume

From the brooding tones of The Dead Weather to cheesy ’90s pop tunes, it’s the willingness to get the best out of a recording that makes these PSBs so appealing.

PSB M4U 1 headphones review: Beats for audiophiles

 

Costing $100 less than its highly regarded noise-canceling sibling, the PSB M4U 1, is a very clean, accurate headphone that offer first-class sound and won't break the bank at $299.

The ; offers excellent, clean, and accurate sound. The headphones fit comfortably and come with both a "plain" cable and one that has an integrated one-button remote and microphone for making cell-phone calls. A nice carrying case and an extra set of...

Like most hinged headphones, the M4U 1's hinges might pose long-term reliability concerns. The headphones high performance can make poorly recorded and compressed music (MP3s) sound worse.

The PSB M4U 1 delivers first-class audiophile sound at home or on-the-go with your mobile device.

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Good headphone- poor customer service

 

Purchased a set recently. The pivot where the earpiece mounts to the headband is now cracking. I called customer service and they said it can't be fixed. They offered me 25% off (which you can regularly find on sales) on a new or refurbished set (now...

Good sound and features

Design flaw on ear=cup mounting- they will NOT fix it.

"Best cans at 300$ price point.Suitable for all genres."

 

A must buy can for 300$ price point. Best cans at 300$ price point.Suitable for all genres viz., Classical, Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, RnB, Dub Step, Piano music, Unplugged, Trance, House, Electronic, Dance, Country etc.They are the only headphones to get all...

Excellent reproduction of sound that they make bad recording sound really.Passive noise isolation,you needn't listen to songs at full volume,35-50% vol is enough.Extra ear pads, detectable cable ,nice carrying case and cleaning cloth.

Had to spend all of my savings to buy these(cheaper against M4U2s),slightly uncomfortable(head-force)however afterwards one becomes used to. With the sonic quality they offer one forgets about the discomfort.1 yr warranty in India(2 in US/Canada).

Great headphone, but huge!

 

This has been called beats for audiophiles. It has great sound, is neutral and detailed, but they are glossy and fairly fashionable. In general, I like a V shape and listen to hardcore, metal, metalcore, so treble and bass add a more lively sound. This...

Accurate, detailed, and neutral. Responds to EQ

Too damn big!

Great overall sound quality, but...

 

These attractive 'phones are a mixed bag for us. The bright red color is certainly distinctive. Build quality, while mostly shiny plastic, feels fairly robust. Many aspects of their sound are truly outstanding, but (and it's a fairly BIG but) they...

Midrange purity, superb soundstage, excellent bass extension

Heavy, somewhat uncomfortable for long listening sessions

Fantastic balanced sound and probably Giant-Killers

 

***Others have provided ample images / specification overviews, so my review is focused on convincing you to try these out, with some comparisons to headphones in and out of its price range. A 5 Point Scale – 1 being Bad, 5 being Excellent / Industry...

Sound Quality, design/accessories, reasonable price, good comfort

Comfort requires some break-in, smallish earpads, optimized for devices not home-listening

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Still my favorite closed-back headphone under $500

 

These headphones are a steal for the msrp price (don't mind that I got a killer deal). I haven't heard any headphone come close to achieving the textures achieved by the PSBs. The chunkiness of Ska guitar, the ring of brass, the resonance of string...

Clarity, Texture, Balanced sound signature (leans a bit warm; to my liking), Efficient (easy to drive), Removable Cable, Isolation, All-rounder

Comfort (headband is fine, but ear cups are a bit small, cans are a bit heavy), Sound stage a bit intimate for my taste, bass present but lacks impact

PSB M4U 1: A New Standard is Born

 

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...

Accurate, natural sound filled with great energy and resolve.

Nothing that comes to mind, but nothing is perfect either; There is always room for improvements.
