Product Description

Headphones Marshall
Headband headphones Marshall Major

Manufacturer's Description

Rock ‘n’ roll has created the world and no brand has shaped rock ‘n’ roll more than Marshall. Like all supreme forms of life, rock ‘n’ roll and Marshall rests on top of creation not as a result of conscious calculation but has gained their symbiotic power by trusting instincts, being unpredictable and keeping both ears open.

Marshall was spawned in the early 1960’s by Jim Marshall who, by request from young guitarists Pete Townshend and Richie Blackmore, started selling guitar equipment in his drum store.

Jim soon begun building his own amplifiers and thanks to his unprejudiced mind combined with certain twists of electrical fate the Marshall amplifiers were blessed with a sound much heavier than anything heard before. The Marshall sound was born and the tone for the future of rock ‘n’ roll had been set.

The revolutionizing Marshall amplifiers were soon picked up by the era’s most progressive rock ‘n’ roll rebels. The Who, Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton were some of the legends to be who felt that they could use the Marshall sound to change popular music into something completely new. Marshall’s keen ear to the demands of these artists together with unforeseen changes in production and materials kept the Marshall sound evolving, entangled as one with that of rock ‘n’ roll.

Rock ‘n’ roll has changed a lot since these days but its soul remains the same. With Marshall Headphones it is now time for Marshall and rock ‘n’ roll to introduce yet another bold push into the unknown.

The Marshall heritage of big stage performance is expanding to the individual enjoyment of good music.

The heavy sound of Marshall has been carried over the world for nearly 50 years. Breathless roadies and roaring trucks have worked hard to make Marshall heard all across the globe. Now, time has come for you to carry this magnificent burden of rock ‘n’ roll all by yourself.

Spending half a decade on tour with the most prominent and untamed musicians builds experience and a feel for what really works. This unparalleled amount of wisdom has been distilled and fused into every part of Marshall Headphones.

Nothing has been compromised when expanding the Marshall heritage of big stage performance to the individual enjoyment of good music. These headphones are conceived from Marshall’s time-tested fundaments of performance and endurance, designed to thrive on daily use and to render music the way it was meant to sound, no matter what your flavour is. The greatest of effort has also been put into the aesthetics, making the headphones ooze of that iconic Marshall look.

The Major encloses vast amounts of the massive Marshall legacy. The exterior of the headband is made out of the same vinyl used in Marshall amplifiers and it bears the original Marshall texture. Besides being straight up dazzling.

The Major is a solid workhorse with great stamina, designed with non-stop, all-day listening in mind.

So, I got these through on Wednesday, and as soon as I put them on my ears, I just didn't want to take them off, they're seriously comfortable. They do however, ache a little after a couple of hours but if you move the position a little, you're good to go.
I'd seen a few reviews on them and I can confirm that the sound quality is pretty awesome - vocals are crisp, background riffs are clear, bass is great. Bear in mind that obviously if you're listening to dubstep, the bass tends to fill up about 85% of the song and that in itself can be handled by the headphones fine, but in another sense is ridiculous because that's an overkill of bass, and you can only expect studio quality headphones to really handle that. I'm a metalhead and it's a perfect for that and pretty much every other genre.

Now, for the whole "They were a lot smaller than I thought" - Yes they are, however, they do cover my ears, and you need some enormous ears for these to stick out of.

Oh another thing - Holy hell, they look amazing! Seriously one hell of a good looking pair of headphones! They are durable too, nice and strong build, there is a spring on the back of the 3.5mm jack which helps the wire to avoid being bent and severing the internal wiring, which actually does seem to work pretty damn well.

Another issue - I noticed that when I put them on first, you feel a prickling on the outside f your ears, it's really strange, but I think it's to do with the grill cloth that goes over the speaker, it must catch onto the little hairs on the outsie o your ear, but when they're in place they're fine.

To conclude, these are a fantastic all round great pair of headphones, definitely recommend them if you're looking for great sound with great style.

Nice sound balance, good bass, with details. The sound is realistic. It fits snuggly on your ears, but comfortable. It is on-ear (supra-aural) closed-back headphones, not over ears (circumaural), so it does not completely shut down outside noise. So it may not be suitable for office use or recording, but perfect for just listening to the music on-the-go. It is super-cool retro minimalistic looking, and I am really satisfied with price and quality.

I mostly listen to music on my HTC Desire HD smartphone. Up until now I've been disappointed with the sound from a variety of headphones from the likes of Sony, Panasonic, Sennheiser & Beats by Dr.Dre. Bass & volume have always been somewhat lacking.
A phone doesn't have the power to drive a full-size set of headphones, whilst small truly portable headphones don't isolate the sound well enough.
Not so with the Marshall Major headphones! WOW!!! They deliver on all fronts with all genres of music. Finally the very experience of listening to portable music is no longer a compromise.
I am revisiting all my favourite songs & artists & picking up nuances I've never previously heard. The volume goes satisfyingly high, the bass goes deep & rich, whilst mids & highs are crisp & clear. The majors really do offer a detailed, expansive soundfield.
Marshall have come up with a solidly-built pair of headphones that firmly, but comfortably grip the head, allowing an immersive listening experience.
I only have two ever so slight niggles. The white Marshall branding on the outside of each earpiece looks rather cheap & plasticy. Also there is no carrying bag or case supplied. Other than that the Marshall Major headphones look very cool in a retro kind of a way.
To summarise, if you want to get the best possible sound out of a phone or MP3 player, then I really cannot fault these headphones. I am amazed at the value for money & delighted with my purchase.

Ordered these just before Xmas and as starter headphones they are good quality for the money. Good rich but not overpowering bass balances out with the mid tones and subtle but clear high's . Not as good as grado for the same money but lushous looking with the leather strap gold plated 3.55 mm jack. Very comfortable to use , wore them all night without noticing that they were there . If you are looking for a good place to start then these do not disappoint

Sound is amazingly clear and I'd say generally well balanced but, as of a personal taste, too much treble in comparison to the rest - I had to change my ipod's EQ settings to find the right balance. Other than that, very powerful sound! Can be very loud but without distorting and at low volume also extremely clear. The bass is good - I listen to a lot of hip hop so good enough! I reckon these are probably at their best when listening to rock (given that IT IS Marshall it's understandable :) )

I won't give it a 5 star rate because isolation is relatively bad - but bear in mind that I used to use in-ear headphones so you cannot top that isolation. I can hear people talking around me and cars passing by on the street but I guess for this price range it's acceptable, and also, the quality and clarity of the sound make up for that.
Also, above about 2/3 of the volume everyone around you can hear what you are listening to but the good news is that above 2/3 my ears would explode lol

The build is fantastic! Unboxing is a great experience and love the details!!! Specially the golden plug and spring to protect the wire. Also love the spiral wire as it still gives the length but doesn't get all tangled in my bag. The cushions are very comfortable and overall they give you a tight grip on your head. The only downside is that it is slightly too tight - but I solved this by forcing it open and it got a bit more loose. I personally also really like the size and shape - they don't make me look like a koala bear!
