Marshall Major headphones deliver retro good looks and impressive sound
Marshall is an iconic brand in audio and you can own a piece of it with the retro Marshall Major headphones that look good and sound great.
The headphones are actually made from the same vinyl-like material and texture as the famous Marshall amplifiers.
The vintage design includes a collapsible frame which means it can fold down and go anywhere with you.
It also has a spiral extendable cord and a headphone jack that looks like an amp plug.
Marshall’s styling extends to the stitched vinyl headband which is autographed by Dr Jim Marshall OBE himself.
It also has soft cushions around the ear cups so they’re comfortable to wear while listening to several albums at a time.
But while it has all of the features and looks of the past it also includes some of today’s conveniences.
It includes the remote and microphone on the cable so it can be used with your smartphone for making and receiving calls.
But looks are one thing. How do they sound? Just as Marshall amps deliver great audio – so do their headphones.
There are 40mm moving coil speakers in each ear cup so deliver quite bit of punch from such a small device.
When listening to the music through the Marshall Major smartphones we heard impressive bass and mid level and solid higher levels with good stereo separation.
While they don’t have the crisp and precise sound of more expensive headphones they still pack a lot of punch.
The headphones offers a snug fit and put the cups close to your ears to offer a slight noise cancelling effect so they’re good enough to use on a plane or public transport.
The Marshall Major headphones are priced at $179.95 and are available now in black, brown and white from Myer and Planet of Sound.
