Summary: I quite like my marshalls for travel, and daily use on the bus. Rally like the retro look and sound is fairly good for allround use.
Pros: -Nice design, -Fairly noise isolating, -Good for travel and phone usage (remote (albeit no volume control), light, chord doesnt tangle), -Decent sound
Cons: -Lacking in bass (didnt really notice it until i played acoustic jazz, with deep bass and hip-hop tracks), -My ears get sore and warm after a couple of ours wearig them, - Pricey - you pay for the marshall brand name.
Summary: Discovered new sound in the music I've been listening to. Great set of headphones if you are into classic rock. Not very useful for low bass sounds. I've owned these for five months now. Not planning on buying another pair soon.
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.. i just listen to anything that sounds good basically.
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!
Good alternative to $300 Noise Reduction headphones.

Summary: These are perfect for those that want something highs quality and unique. They are definitely geared to the rock/acoustic listener. A great $90 headphone.
Pros: These are perfect for those that want something highs quality and unique. They are great looking, fantastic sounding rock n roll headphones. Acoustic cuts sound particularly good. Build quality is sound.
Cons: As mentioned in previous review, these are not for the hip-hop listener or those looking for thundering bass.
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 are made of plastic with a rubery feeling to it, hinges are metal attached to the leather( or leather look?) headband with a plastic pieces responsible of the folding.
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.
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. Even the box's design is exceptional!
The non-detachable cable is thick enough but still flexible, doesn't tangle or get in the way.
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. I had a pair of AKG K172 HD, and decided to go for these for my commuting needs.
The Major headphones look very nice. They are built quite solid and can handle a fair share of abuse.
Pros: very easy to drive, portable, look good, have microphone
