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...

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 (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 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.

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.

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

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

The design is practical too. Metal rails enable the earpieces to be adjusted to ensure a good fit. Furthermore, the ear cups to be folded inward making the Majors compact enough to be ported about easily and we even managed to cram our set into a...

The Marshall Major headphones offer a cool design and pretty good sound quality. It's just a shame they're so uncomfortable to wear.

Design is reminiscent of the famous amps ; Decent sound quality

Painfully tight headband

The Marshall Major headphones look good and sound good. It's a shame they're so uncomfortable to wear, though -- we can't recommend headphones that hurt. Hopefully Marshall's next effort will bring the same amount of rock, with a little more padding.
