Marshall Major Headphones Review
23 November 2014
Summary: Marshall's largest headphone offering represents a well-constructed, compact set of on-the-ear cans. The attention to detail in the packaging, branding, and materials will not go unnoticed. Rock and alternative sounded best, but they work equally well for most genres.
Excerpt: Go to just about any rock concert and you’re bound to see a stack of Marshall amplifiers onstage. Due to their sound and reliability, countless musicians have relied on them for nearly 50 years.
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 $50 premium over the standard model; they're not the last word in hi-fi, as they're lacking some finesse; not as comfortable as the Bowers and Wilkins P3.
Excerpt: Marshall has been a force to reckon with in audio for half a century, with luminaries like Pete Townsend and others using their amps and gear in their live and recorded projects ever since. Ever since they added portable audio gear like headsets, Marshall has continued the tradition.
Pros: Old-fashioned, retro design, Well-built, with a thick cord and great padded headband, Fully-functional remote/mic, Nice straight gold-plated 3.5mm plug, with full-sized adaptor included, Great, sturdily-built canvas pouch for carrying the headset around included, Wonderful, fantastic audio reprod...
Summary: I'm a professional DJ/Producer. In my rider I ask that the venue supply the headphones. So I have at least 100 pairs of headphones, and that's after giving away the majority of them to friends. Not going to bother to run off every pair but I've tried just about every pair out.
Pros: Kick ass mids, great very detailed bass, SMOOTH detailed highs
Cons: VERY LONG burn in period on some, conservative estimate about 250+ hours.
Summary: This is actually the first "over-head" headphone i ever bought, but compared to my philips and LG tone+ this one is a lot more for 70$, i mainly use it on my gaming rig with sound card installed. i listen to rock mostly, bass heavy stuff and some r&b, alternatives..
Pros: Very detailed bass, mids and highs are awesome and it's Marshalls!
Cons: it's actually manufactured else where, not really over-head, and i thought it's BIG!
Summary: This is my review of the Marshall Major. I am currently living in Denmark and got these as a christmas present from the company I work for. They retail for a whopping $150 US, and that puts them in a very hard competition.
Pros: very easy to drive, portable, look good, have microphone
Summary: I got these as I needed a pair of portable decent sounding headphones. These fill that role pretty well.
The design is great! The dark matte finish is soft to the touch, the earcups are small and plastic but feel nice and solid, and the headband has enough padding.
Summary: Marshall Major
At first I had a hard time with the major and was dissapointed, mainly fit issues and sound. then I learned to "live with it" for what they are.
Build: no complains here, the build up is tough, nothing feels loose or flacid, the headband is well padded but not so flexible, the cups...
Pros: Good looking, well built, very portable, easy to drive, decent sound
Cons: a bit overpriced, sound quality is slightly below the rest, comfort issues.
