PSB M4U 1 headphones

The PSB M4U 1 headphones offer detailed sound and long-lasting comfort in a portable design. (Red model shown)

Long revered for their musical honesty and superior value, PSB speakers have been a favorite of audiophiles and industry insiders for over 40 years. Now PSB has created headphones that pack the same sonic realism and precision as their speakers into a portable package you can take with you anywhere.

The M4U 1 delivers accurate sound with clarity and balance for a true presentation of music as it was meant to be heard by the artist. The closed-back design helps keep external noise at a minimum while ensuring that all the musical goodness stays sealed inside. Comfortable adjustable ear pads and a cushioned headband make these sleek headphones wearable for hours at a time.

One-button control of music and calls

The M4U 1 comes with two detachable cables that connect to either earcup. One cable includes an in-line remote and microphone for use with your Apple and Blackberry devices. Full track control is at your fingertips with the multi-function button. You can even answer calls on your iPhone® or Blackberry as the M4U 1 becomes a phone headset. Switch seamlessly between calls and music without touching your phone or removing your headphones. The M4U 1 also includes a standard cable, just in case your listening device isn't compatible with the remote cable.

They fit very well and they sound good, they also have other great features with a phone jack and cable and sound adjustment capabilities and other features as well, Crutchfield customer service is great, they are all very kind and are very informative.

Features

Overview: The PSB M4U 1 headphones are part of the Music for You (M4U) series of high performance headphones. The M4U 1 has an over-ear design, which blocks out much of the external noise, but also adds to the comfort. The headphones come with two 5' cables (one with an in-line remote/microphone and one without), airline and 1/4" adapters, an extra set of earpads, and a semi-hard zippered storage case.

Room Feel: The M4U 1 has Room Feel technology, which gives the headphones the same true-to-nature sound as a pair of PSB's in-room loudspeakers.

Ear Pads: The soft earpads are designed for comfort and fit. The ergonomic ear pads are gyro-suspended and self-adjusting to give you a precise fit. The M4U 1 comes with a spare pair of earpads.

Cables: The M4U 1 includes two 5' tangle-free cables, which can plug into either side. One cable is designed for use with your smartphone, and includes an in-line remote and microphone. The remote lets you answer and hang up your call, and play/pause, skip forward, and skip backward. The controls are compatible with iPhone and Blackberry. The other cable has no in-line remote/mic. A dual-input airline adapter and 1/4" stereo adapter are included.

Specifications:

  • Frequency Response (+/- 1.5dB): 20-20,000 Hz
  • Sensitivity (1kHz/1mW): 102dB
  • Power Handling: 30mW maximum
  • Impedance: 32 ohms

Why did you buy this?

review on Wirecutter [ Jon  Dec 10, 2015 ]
Fantastic sound. Detailed and revealing, but relatively neutral and natural. Well balanced frequency response. Not accentuated in the high or low frequencies. Smooth mid range frequency response. Comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. [ Thomas  Mar 13, 2017 ]
Daisy at Crutchfield recommended it and the ratings were good [ Ken  Dec 03, 2015 ]
