PSB Speakers, well known for affordable excellence in loudspeaker and headphone design, introduced the M4U 8, wireless Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) headphones with Tri-Mode operation and RoomFeel technology. The M4U 8 is PSB’s first pair of wireless headphones and the company’s most advanced design to date. It has a MSRP of $599.
Intelligent Noise Cancelling
The M4U 8 employs Tri-Mode operation, which means the headphones have three ways in which you can enjoy music while on the go. Active with ANC mode is recommended for music listening where ambient noise could interfere with the enjoyment of music, while Active Only mode is recommended for music listening where ambient noise is not an issue.
Both of these modes rely on the two rechargeable NiMH AAA batteries included with the headphone, designed so that you can swap out depleted batteries for freshly charged ones easily. Listen all day and all night with up to 15 hours of run time in Bluetooth or Active modes.
Unlike some other headphones with ANC, the M4U 8 can be operated passively when battery power has been depleted or by those preferring to use an external amplification device. The three modes are easily changed with a toggle switch located on the right ear cup.
The Best Sound in Any Environment
The M4U 8 features PSB’s exclusive RoomFeel technology, which makes music sound more natural by considering the effects of the room on music playback. Almost all recorded music is monitored using direct radiating loudspeakers to determine the acoustic balance for the final mix. RoomFeel scientifically takes into account the “room gain” that occurs when playing direct radiator loudspeakers in a room. The result is a much richer and more natural listening experience.
Particular attention to comfort and ergonomics has been placed in the design of the M4U 8. Weighing less than 362g, it’s relatively light for a pair of full-size, active headphones. The unique two-way adjustable ear pads are gyro-suspended to conform to your head. The softness of the ear pads adds to the comfort and allows the M4U 8 to be enjoyed for hours on end. The expandable headband offers a wide range of adjustment for a personalized fit.
The M4U 8 folds easily and is supplied with a rugged travel case and connection accessories for travel and storage. Tangle-free cords are supplied for wired connection and for USB connection to a computer. The headphones can also be paired with most smartphones and used for phone conversations. A “listen through mode” allows you to momentarily listen to the outside world as well as having the ability to answer a connected phone. Two built-in, hands-free microphones provide enhanced clarity.
