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.
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

The Marshall Major is a good all-around headphone that may be the only headphone a person needs for multiple uses. The Marshall Major Hedphones have a nice and uniform sound quality, tough and rugged construction, all while being lightweight and comfortable throughout extended periods of use.
Pros: Nice and Uniform Sound Quality, Tough & Rugged Construction, Lightweight & Comfortable, Foldable & Collapsible Design for Storage

Excerpt: 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 cans and Sennheiser Adidas HD 25-1-II . While both of these headphones got good scores, there is a danger of style taking over from substance.
Pros: Cool design, decent audio
Cons: A little pricey, might be uncomfortable for some
