Marshall Major (Black) review: Marshall Major (Black)

 

Introduction The closed-back, on-ear Marshall Majors headphones carry noise-canceling functionality for your ride to work, school, and anywhere in between. Priced at $100, the Majors deliver excellent sound detail and functional design elements like a...

The uniquely attractive Marshall Major headphones eliminate outside noise and exhibit an ample sound stage that complements any type of music.

The vinyl ear cushions retain heat and the over-ear design can be uncomfortable after several hours of continual use.

The Marshall Major headphones live up to Marshall's strong legacy with a familiar shape and excellent acoustics to match its line of amps.

Marshall Major

 

Having proved its mettle as an amplifier manufacturer, Marshall is trying its hand with a pair of headphones.

Well-built, Stylish looks, Decent sound quality

Cheaper, better sounding rivals avaialble, Somewhat uncomfortable

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

Headsets from Marshall and Sony : Marshall Major & Sony MDR-570LP
