Product Description

The Story of Marshall…So far!

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 Minor...

Marshall’s trademark heavy sound has reverberated around rhe world for more than five decades. The Major 50 FX is a commemorative version of the Marshall Major, featuring boosted sound and gold detailing on the outer ear cas, embodying the classic marshall look, the inner ear caps are lined with fret detailing borrowed from the 50th anniversary line of amplifiers and a vinyl hedband that’s inscribed with the dae and place the legend was born: London England 1962.

The Marshall Major incorporates a wealth of exciting features. The headphone is built with super soft ear cushions for maximum comfort and is of fully collapsible construction, perfect for storage and transportation. The Major is compatible with any 3.5 / 6.3 mm music player using the (6.3 mm) included adapter and comes equipped with microphone and remote for use with your mobile phone. Combined with excellent audio and a tangle resistant fabric cord, the minor is in it for the long haul.

The Major...

The Major encloses vast amounts of the massive Marshall legacy. They have a simple, yet stylish one colour design in classic black or white that has real eye-catching impact. In addition to this great look, it incorporates quite a few exciting features.

The exterior of the headband is made out of the same vinyl used in Marshall amplifiers and it bears the original Marshall texture. The super soft ear cushion means no matter how hard and heavy the music, the super soft cushions will rest lightly upon your eyes, so no matter how long you’re listening to your favourite music, you will not endure sore or aching ears. The Major comes equipped with microphone and remote for use with a mobile phone using 3.5mm plug unprotected two-way standard (ie. Blackberry, HTC, iPhone). This means that you can take calls and pause and play your music with ease. The Major is delivered with a 6.3 mm adapter for use with with your amplifier, stereo or any sound source adhering to the 6.3 mm. This makes these headphones compatible with both 3.5mm and 6.3mm music players. Furthermore, the fully collapsible construction means if you by chance would like to take The Major off of your head, they are foldable for easy storage and transportation.

Combined with excellent audio and a tangle resistant fabric cord the Major is a solid workhorse with great stamina, designed with non-stop, all-day listening in mind. Rock and Roll to your favourite music today with Marshall Major Headphones – Pitch Black!

These were by far the nicest phones I demoed at around this price range. Comfortable, clear, nice bass and excellent build quality. The biggest, most apparent difference however is that these headphones are LOUD, especially when A/B compared with the Sony range. I can listen comfortably on the tube with my volume set at 10 or 11 out of 15 whereas before, using my sennheisers for example, I would have to crank it right up.
The sound is still very detailed, drums sound great for example, toms and kick drums sounding big and round and dynamic. You can hear the space between sounds far better than the competition, which sounded compressed and flat in comparison.

I bought these at full price in the shop where I demoed them so as to avoid delivery times, missing the package etc and I can happily say that despite the price tag I am totally satisfied.

Important note! I decided to write this review becuase the previous reviewer stated that the mic only works with apple products. I am using a Samsung Galaxy SII and it works fine. Only thing that doesn't work is three clicks is supposed to skip back a track, which it doesn't. Two clicks to skip to the next track does work though and is very useful.

Here are some other points I noted:

Sony: Quiet and plasticky but have a detailed sound.
Audio Technica: Nice enough sound but flimsy build quality
Sennheiser: Sound deteriates as you go up the range! £45 model was quiet but had nice bass, these are the type of folding headphones I had before. £55 was maybe more detailed in high range but was lacking bass and the £99 model sounded horrible, thin and phasey... steer clear!
Shure: Great sound but too bulky for my taste and not cheap!

Lovely retro styling with Jim Marshall signature on inside, and classic Marshall logo on each can. Generally great sound quality (exceptional for guitar solos) although a little grainy at fully volume, but you shouldn't need them on full anyway. Overall a brilliant buy!
FYI: THE MIC ONLY SEEMS TO WORK ON APPLE PRODUCTS :(

I've now owned both the original Marshall Majors which were recently exchanged under accidental damage warranty for the new 'mic' Majors. The review is exactly the same for the most part with the 'BUT' coming at the end...

Bought mine in October 2011 after becoming fed up with my excellent - but "breaky" Koss Porta Pro headphones having to be continually sent back due to problems with the headphone jack. I finally decided to spend a bit more - well quite a lot more actually - on a decent pair, so available for testing in a well known high street retailer, I finally went for the Marshalls for a number of reasons:

Pros:
They look cool as hell and any rock fan worth their salt will already know the legendary Marshall branding
Tested side by side against more expensive pairs, these sounded as good, if not better, than many of them
Paired with my Nokia N8 (far better music player than my iPods), these kick serious butt for guitar orientated music
Build quality seems high
Soft ear cushions and tight fit reduces sound leakage on public transport
The Coiled guitar style lead allows movement without the need for an annoying two or three metre long cable

Cons:
I have a fairly large head (or so I'm told!) and they can become almost painfully tight after a while. They can be repositioned of course but even this has no effect eventually: probably good to give your ears a rest after a few hours of Metallica or Slayer though!
No carry case: shame really as they can still get damaged if thrown into a busy back pack

All in all, a good buy and easily better than Dr Dre's costing twice the price...

Now the BUT! While the old Majors were compatible with ALL devices utilising a 3.

I'm extremely particular when it comes to audio equipment and I have gone through a myriad of high quality headphones from major manufacturers such as Sony, Phillips, JVC, Pioneer.. Sound quality of course is the de-facto selection criteria, however comfort is a close second for me, especially if you are going to wear these for prolonged length of times.. and this product has both.

Marshall is renowned for quality professional audio products and they prove it yet again with these headphones. Sound quality is excellent, bass tones are deep and clear, mid tones are punchy and the high end is bright and clear. They are also loud.. you won't be disappointed when you crank up your volume, especially if you're travelling on public transport with high ambient noise.

I was shopping for headphones that had an in-line mic for use with my iPhone, which this product includes, along with a call answering remote button which is very convenient, allowing you to leave your phone in your pocket when answering calls. I wanted these "gimmicky" features without having to purchase a "gimmicky" low quality product.

Some observations you might want to consider...

- The remote does not have volume control, therefore if you receive a call from low-volume caller then you'll need to reach for your phones volume control.
- The chord isn't long, although the curly chord design does actually stretch quite bit. This is really designed for personal comfort, therefore you don't have a couple of meters of wire tangled up in your pocket. I find the length perfect for walking around with your audio player in your pocket. However, if you are looking for a product to hook up to your Hi-Fi (or any audio equipment) that is over 1.
