PSB Speakers have launched the M4U 8 MkII wireless headphones, a closed-back pair which features personalised audio and RoomFeel technology that aims to recreate the experience of listening to a hi-fi set in a room.

RoomFeel is said to bring greater realism to recordings and deliver the “experience of in-room hi-fi listening” through headphones through preset target EQ curves.

The headphones also include personalised audio from Audiodo, which takes into account a listener’s unique hearing abilities and adjusts playback for “anomalies from hearing damage, physiological irregularities, and even psychoacoustic perceptions” to improve sound quality. Calibration is performed through the dedicated PSB Headphones app.

There’s also active noise cancelling onboard with four built-in microphones to accurately monitor environmental noise. The PSB M4U 8 MkII headphones are said to deliver up to 25 hours of listening with ANC on, and charge with USB-C.

In terms of connectivity, the wireless headphones feature Qualcomm’s aptX HD Bluetooth codec – which offers listeners playback at 24-bit audio. If you forget to charge them, you can also use them wired with a 3.5mm cable.

The PSB M4U 8 MKII will be available on 10 November at a price of £349/$399/€449. It comes with its own carrying case, too.
