Has anyone tested the NAD hp50s with the PSB m4u1 and m4u 2? I think the first post gave some comparisons, but I would like to see views of others too.
I know it's by the same Paul B., but since both m4u 1 and hp50s are priced at $299, I was hoping to gauge which would be a better buy in terms of sound quality and build quality.
I am more interested in the m4u 1s since it seems that some people hear hissing noises from the m4u 2s when the amp or NC is turned on. I think I'd rather save $100 and invest in qc15 later if I really need NC, which I doubt I would.
I like how the NAD hp50s were tuned, so I'm guessing that the m4u 1 is similar. I've heard that there are headband issues with PSB m4us, but for me, the NAD visa hp50s earcups seem rather fragile. In a previous post, I mentioned that it was possible to mute just the left ear with a push for the NAD hp50s, and that was a great concern for me. It could just be my pair that has this issue, but it really bothers me.
