Editor John Darko of Digital Audio Review travels the distance with the PSB M4U 2 Headphones to hear how these active noise-cancelling cans stand up to everything from busy streets to noisy airplane engines. Favouring the design inside and out, Darko explores the acoustic benefits of the M4U 2’s ‘weightier’ active mode with a ‘tighter and leaner’ bass response, and choses this ‘super-sturdy’ noise-canceller for his next long haul across the world.
“Build quality is super-sturdy – a well-cushioned metal headband with metal hinges for foldaway storage.”
“The textural information reproduced on the plucked bass sample at the core of “Her Face Forms In Summertime” is stellar. Ditto bass definition and fortitude.”
“This is where the PSB M4U 2 can-can into a field of their own: aesthetics that draw the attention of the Beats (by Dre) crowd with a sound that far surpasses the same. Effective noise cancellation seals the deal on these being my choice for future long haul travel.”
