Marshall Major 50 FX headphones celebrate rock icon

7 June 2013
  • Summary: The Marshall Major 50 FX headphones may look a little gaudy, but the company's rock tradition is safe with a premium build and exciting sound.
  • Pros: The, headphones feature a sturdy build and authentic Marshall details; they fold up neatly and store in a cloth bag; has integrated mic and three button remote; sound is exciting and suits rock music but are also capable of playing other genres.
  • Cons: At $170 the headphones may be too rich for some people's blood -- especially given the $50 premium over the standard model; they're not the last word in hi-fi, as they're lacking some finesse; not as comfortable as the Bowers and Wilkins P3.

  • Excerpt: Famous amp maker Marshall shook up the audio world when they released the Marshal Major and Minor headphones. A little over a year later, they’ve now added some phone-friendly additions to their flagship Major ($120) cans in the form of an integrated mic and remote. Both features function as you’d expect, allowing users to answer calls and flip through playlists with compatible phones such as the iPhone.

Marshall Major Review

30 November 2011
  • Conclusion: 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. However, their tendency to compress sound when driven with lower quality sources and the long-term comfort problems we experienced hold us back from making them a recommended product.
  • Pros: Brilliant, live sound, Accurate bass, Unique aesthetic, Well built
  • Cons: Uncomfortable for long term use, Upper mids compress at high volumes

Somehow, the sight of a Marshall stack at a concert provides a sense of comfort and familiarity, not to mention that distinctive wholesome Marshall sound. The question then arises, can Jim and his friends reproduce this in the mid-range headphone market?
  • Pros: Lightweight, Work with almost any device, Cool design and a great cord
  • Cons: Sound quality is poor for all but mp3, No carry case or pouch, No volume control on remote
