Pros: Natural Representation, Soundstage "Room-Feel Technology", Nice Midrange, Integrated Amplifier

Cons: Noise Cancelling Is not the best, very heavy, On-ear clamping pressure, plastic design, Slight grain in the treble, Bass-transient are not the best

I've owned the Sennheiser Momentums, B&W P7's, and other mid-fi portable headphones but I prefer these in terms of sound quality only.

Why? These headphone's have such an organic/balanced representation of all the sound frequencies that it really sounds accurate/natural opposed to accurate/cold or overly colored.

Sennheiser Momentum: Dull/bloated bass response, overly thick midrange, and recessed high frequencies.

B&W P7's: Unnatural Representation, slightly thin midrange, loose bass, strident high frequencies.

Ultasone Edition 8's: They are like $1499. Better than the P7's and PSB's , but severely overpriced.

Bose QC 15: I tried to like them for their excellent noise cancellation but the sound is so horrible.

Sennheiser PXC 450- Dry, dry midrange, subpar bass response, better noise cancellation than the M4U2's but not better passive sound isolation.

the weight of the m4u2 isn't that heavy but it feels like a ton of lead on my head compared to other similar weighing phones, is this just me?
No it's not just you.
What a good and succinct evaluation of several headphones.  I am not the only one who finds P7's treble crossing into the shrill territory. To
add about Edition 8, these headphones have an unbearable treble.
Do you know the weight of M4U-2 ?
Thanks. The weight of the M4U-2's are 12.08oz (0.8Ibs) with the batteries
