PSB M4U1 - Thoughts? - Page 37

post #541 of 552

I have PSB M4U1 and my wife has Nad HP50 and both sound quite similar. I cannot wear the NAD HP50 as I have a smallish head and they do not fit

I got these today for only 75$. Superb sounding can for sure, but the pads are not durable at all with my country tropical weather.

Lightly used. The former owner bought a new B&W P7, which imo, is a (much) worse sounding can compare to these PSB. It has a more quality build an a bling bling factor going for it though.

The stock cable jack is a bit tricky. It seems a tiny bit longer than usual, so that It only sounds good with the stock 3.5mm to 6.5mm converter when I plug in the Schiit Magni.

I'm looking for a M4U1 replacement cable.​ Looking at the stock cable the straight jack that plugs into the cans seems to be 4-poled, so I would like to know if any cable witth both 3,5", three poled jacks will work or I need a special cable for the M4U1.

 

Thanks for your help.

For your replacement cable, what would make the M4U1 would sound better is to have a Y cable that delivers the same sound to the left/right and plug into both sockets of the headphones. Trust me when I say this will sound better.

Thanks for your answer, JWolf. Is there any aftermarket Y replacement cable suitable for the M4U1? It's a very rare headphone here, in Spain, which is really a pity, 'cause it has a great sound, neutral and quite natural. A great companion for my Fiio X5 II.

I had someone make my cable.Maybe you can find someone here who can make you the cable. Or look on eBay to someone who makes aftermarket cables and send out a messages asking if such a cable can be made and how mich for the length you want.

Thanks for your suggestion. Still curious about the four pole jack.

That's so you can maybe use a cable with a control on it.IMHO, for the M4U1, there's no need.

Hi i have been using my m4u1 about 1 year now but now i just change to a 3.5 mm balance to 2.5 mm balance and the diference is so noticible. My current player is AK 300. The separation is definetly much better than the stock cable.

Thanks, Astelnet. What cable are you using?
