Head­phones of the Year $500-$1000

Sound+Image - - Contents -

From the sis­ter brand of NAD and Blue­sound come th­ese Blue­tooth-equipped ver­sions of a pre­vi­ous award-win­ner (the noise-can­celling M4U 2). Bril­liant in ev­ery way is the $599 M4U 8 — the big and pow­er­ful ac­tive sound, their abil­ity to de­liver in-the-room as well as in-your-head de­liv­ery, and the most sen­si­ble set of con­trols for wire­less NC we’ve ever had the plea­sure of us­ing (no tricky touch­pads here). Some may think them a lit­tle large, even a lit­tle firm to the head; it mat­ters lit­tle once un­der their spell. Even via Blue­tooth the sound qual­ity is good; vo­cals are crisp, mu­sic big and en­er­getic with­out tran­gress­ing any fre­quency band. Back on ca­ble, they’re rich and full, al­most en­tirely free of bloat in the bass, and won­der­fully mu­si­cal. Our new ref­er­ence for wire­less NC.
