Marshall Major Pitch Black Headphones Review

 

When we were first informed that Marshall would be creating a pair of headphones here in 2012, it seemed too good to be true. One of the most major brands in the amplification of sound, providers of sound for no less than Slayer, greatest creation of...

Marshall Major

 

It seems like everyone and their cousin's brother is making headphones now. It also seems like we've made a similar comment in almost every headphone review we've published over the last couple of months. In fact, both statements are true and we think...

Brilliant, live sound ; Accurate bass ; Unique aesthetic ; Well built

Uncomfortable for long term use ; Upper mids compress at high volumes

The Marshall Major headphones offer an aesthetic appeal that is uniquely Marshall and bring with that look a very live sound that we think many listeners will appreciate.

Marshall Major 50 FX Headphone Review

 

Marshall has been a force to reckon with in audio for half a century, with luminaries like Pete Townsend and others using their amps and gear in their live and recorded projects ever since. Ever since they added portable audio gear like headsets,...

Old-fashioned, retro design ; Well-built, with a thick cord and great padded headband ; Fully-functional remote/mic ; Nice straight gold-plated 3.5mm plug, with full-sized adaptor included ; Great, sturdily-built canvas pouch for carrying the headset...

None as far as I can tell

I can’t recommend it highly enough.

UPDATED: Since the introduction of the lower case “i” at the beginning of a device name it seems the sound reproduction world has been solely delivering tiny little chunks of plastic and other material to shove into your eardrum. For some however, we...

Marshall Major Pitch Black review

 

When Marshall audio equipment arrives, we always expect the best. But do its latest headphones deliver the quality we expect from this iconic brand?

Excellent audio quality ; Minimalist design ; Very comfortable

Not quite in Dre's league

Obviously, there's a plethora of great headphones out there, many of which we rate extremely highly. But we've not seen a pair of headphones that can deliver the same sound - both quality and volume - at this price. Just £100? Wow.

Marshall Major review

 

Nowadays, headphones aren't just a way of listening to your music without annoying people on the bus, they're also a fashion accessory. We've had plenty of cool-looking headphones on the the Pocket-lint test bench including Philips O'Neill The Stretch...

Cool design, decent audio

A little pricey, might be uncomfortable for some

A good all-round pair of cans that offer decent audio and a cool design, although possibly a little expensive for some

Rock N Roll flair in a contemporary set of headphones

 

Marshall has a long and glorious history in amplifier production. Chances are one of your favourite artists has used a Marshall amplifier at some point. Somehow, the sight of a Marshall stack at a concert provides a sense of comfort and familiarity,...

Lightweight, Work with almost any device, Cool design and a great cord

Sound quality is poor for all but mp3, No carry case or pouch, No volume control on remote

Marshall Major

 

Classy looks, good for vocals

Harsh treble, bass lacks oompf

Great retro looks and that famous logo don’t entirely make up for a slightly confused, shouty performance
