Try wrapping the auxiliary cable in aluminum or copper tape. Not sure if it'll work, but I've been meaning to try it myself.

I'm pretty sure it'll work since an electric field can't penetrate a closed conducting surface.

Let me know how it turns out if you get to it before I do, good luck!

I experienced that popping sound as well.  It was too loud for me to deal with.  I'm returning my pair and moving to the Zik 2.0.

I have no popping sound at all.

uhmm I thought the interference is coming from the internal amp, since I only hear it with ON or ANC.

I've had a chance to compare the PSB M4U 2 to Beats Studio and the PSB beat the Beats hands down The Beats had a heavier bass than the PSB, but the balance was off witht he Beats. The mids and the high-ed were lost in comparison.The PSB sounds more natural. The Beats sounded a bit tinny.

I see, not sure then. I just know my cables are much more sensitive to interference from external electronic devices when they are hooked up to any amp. Assumed noise was coming from there.

Does anyone know how to wire a balanced cable for the PSB M4U 2 such that the amp mode works? Thanks.

Is it possible to do a dual entry cable ?

Hey everybody. I just got a PSB M4U 2, but I'm having a hardware issue with it and was wondering if y'all could assist. I tried contacting PSB directly, but they just told me to return it to seller. Sure, I could do that, but I'd have to RMA it back to Amazon and all that nonsense -- so maybe I could just fix it instead. Here's the symptoms:

 

*Passive mode is perfect

*Amp mode actually makes sounds softer

*NC mode actually makes external sounds louder

*When I unplug the cable from the phones, the NC audibly kicks in and starts cancelling external sound

 

So, obviously the monitoring function has somehow defaulted to always being on. Unfortunately, clicking the monitor button on the cable doesn't do anything at all. This behavior manifests with both cables, so the issue must be in the phones themselves -- which is a little strange to me, because NC seems to work fine when no cable is plugged in.

 

Has anyone experienced anything like this? Any ideas on what I could try? It's all a bit ironic, because I'd be perfectly happy if there were no monitoring function available at all -- but obviously always having the monitoring function turned on is unusable.

Are you plugging the right end into the headphones?  The straight end goes in the headphones and the 90 degree end goes to your source.  It does sound like you have a defective pair.

It's possible, but the problem is knowing how to wire the cable so the amp & NC works.

I find the clamping force not enough (so if I press on the ear cups to my ears, then it sounds fuller and more realistic). It is a brand new pair. Is it just me? frown.gif

Many complain of the clamping force being to much.

Try shortening the headband as much as possible to tighten it up.

Thanks for the advice. That actually worked lol. When I shortened it, on first touch of my head it seems too short and only clamping the top part of the ears. Didn't realize need to wait a couple seconds for it to "settle" into comfort.

Huge fan of my new PSB M4U 2's. Although I have to admit than when I first tried them, I panicked a little. I heard a use cracking noise every time I moved by head. Luckily, this disappeared after I greased the iron parts of the headphone.
