Marshall Major II

 

The Marshall Major II is a highly stylized set of on-ear headphones with terrific audio performance for the price.

Well-balanced, clean audio response with rich bass and crisp highs. Comfortable, lightweight design. Detachable cable

Plastic look not for everyone. Purists may find the headphones too bass-heavy

Marshall headphones, from their inception, have defied the gimmicky concept of invoking the look of the iconic Marshall guitar amps. Fashioning headphones and speakers this way could have been a great chance to skimp on actual audio performance in the...

Marshall Headphones Major II

 

For starters, the earcups have a more rounded design, and the hinges and headband are more flexible, and the headphones just fit your head better and are more comfortable to wear.

The affordable, comfortable Marshall Major II on-ear headphones offer improved bass performance and better clarity than the original Major model. The headphones fold inward and have a detachable cable with a one-button inline remote and microphone.

Inline remote lacks volume controls; no carrying case included.

The combination of an improved design and better performance makes the Marshall Major II a strong on-ear contender for around $100 USD.

Marshall Major II Headphones Review: Stellar Sound, Affordable Price

 

Marshall Amplification, made famous for its guitar amplifiers, also makes a number of other products including headphones. They were kind enough to send over a pair and we've tested them out for our Marshall Major II headphones review.

Lightweight, great sounding, affordable, mic/remote function, and the ability to hook in a second set of headphones to share your music with friends are all features which make these headphones well worth a look. If you’re in the market for a new set...

Marshall Major II Headphones Review

 

In the tech world, even with audio equipment, it's getting increasingly rare to see something that goes five years without a refresh. But, that's just what happened with the Marshall Major on-ear headphones. They were released in 2010 to mostly...

Very comfortable, effective passive noise cancellation, balanced and clear sound, can be linked to other speakers and headphones, sturdy audio cable, reasonable price

Sound can be a little muddled on more complex tracks, no carrying case included, plastic on the earcups and hinges doesn’t feel sturdy
