Imagine the best headphones you’ve ever heard. They'd deliver incredible, natural sounding audio with precision, punch and power.
They'd silence the outside world so you could hear even the most delicate details. And they'd take you from wherever you are and put you right in the middle of your favourite music.
That's what PSB's award-winning HD headphones deliver. They could well be the audio world's best-kept secret.
Power and passion
PSB headphones are the result of a passion for music that goes back more than forty years. As a boy, Paul Barton designed hi-fi speakers that he built in the garage with his dad; as an adult, he founded a business based on delivering the most natural, open sound it's possible to get.
By combining precision engineering, cutting-edge technology and psychoacoustic research PSB has continually pushed the limits of high-end audio.
It's garnered PSB tons of awards and a worldwide following, and the same passion, innovation and expertise is in every pair of PSB's innovative wireless headphones.
The flagship of the PSB range is the incredible M4U 8. It delivers something no other headphones can offer: RoomFeel. RoomFeel is a clever mix of smart software and hardware adaptations that makes you feel like you're listening to full-size speakers in an acoustically optimised room.
That's important because most music is mixed and optimised for in-room listening, not headphone listening. The results are jaw-dropping, with space and dynamics and a natural feel that you simply don’t get from lesser headphones.
One of the most important things about RoomFeel is that it doesn’t change the original audio signal. It uses what's known as "room gain", which is the energy and warmth that a room adds when you're listening to music on high-quality speakers, subtly enhancing the sound without ever adding unwanted artefacts or effects.
In the M4U 8 headphones, RoomFeel is made even better by PSB's noise cancelling circuitry. It uses four adaptive microphones – other brands use two – and one of the best noise cancelling chipsets ever created.
That's teamed up with hi-res AptX HD Bluetooth delivering 24-bit wireless audio. Together they make the outside world simply disappear so you can enjoy your music in incredible detail.
A design for life
At PSB, convenience and flexibility is almost as important as delivering incredible sound quality.
That's why the M4U 8 headphones give you easy NFC pairing, conveniently located controls on the headphone frame and some useful little touches such as the included cable for connecting to in-flight entertainment, a cable that you can connect to either ear cup so you don't have to run it across your body.
The headphones can be used in three modes: noise cancelling mode with RoomFeel when there's ambient noise, active mode with RoomFeel when there isn't any background sound to worry about, and passive mode if your flight is delayed so long you run out of charge. They're very comfortable too, with adaptive plush ear pads and ergonomic design that makes them so comfortable you won’t want to take them off.
It's all about substance, not just style. Every single design decision is based on delivering the most natural sound possible in the best possible way. There are no gimmicks, no unnecessary bells or whistles. Just the features you need to experience and enjoy your music just like the creators intended.
From the magical M4U 8 to the gym- and bike-friendly M4U TW1, PSB headphones deliver incredible sound quality wherever life takes you.
