From guitar amp to headphones – traditional brand with style

Marshall’s story has something to do with rock’n’roll. Jim Marshall was the founder and spirit of the British traditional brand without which there would be no legendary bands and their equipment. Meanwhile Marshall releases their own headphones through the Lifestyle product line with Minor, Major and Monitor, which come in the Mashall-typical design, but do not only appeal to musicians.

Editor's recommendations: Marshall

Marshall’s Major IV closed headphones impress with their battery performance giving 80 hours of playtime along with wireless charging. Soft pads ensure a more comfortable fit, even after hours of use. The sound, on the other hand, remains unchanged. Its accentuated, yet well-measured bass gives both mids and highs enough room to breathe, although it slightly cuts off the latter in the uppermost nuances, which also slightly impairs its transparency. But in interaction with a Smartphone, both their sound and operation via multifunctional control button in Bluetooth mode are impressive. It’s a pity that Marshall doesn’t provide a carrying case, but with their practical folding mechanism, these compact headphones will fit in a large jacket pocket.

Marshall Major IV

Marshall’s Monitor II A.N.C. rocks! After all, these closed Bluetooth headphones have a high-quality finish, are very comfortable to wear and feature Active Noise Cancelling and app connection with many adjustment options. Their sound is quite homogeneous and pleasing with well-measured bass notes. The only thing I’d wish for was a little more self-confidence from the treble in favour of transparency. Unfortunately, the ear pads are not interchangeable, but this generally does not impact the durability of these robust headphones.

Marshall Monitor II A.N.C.

With the Major III Bluetooth, Marshall has a stylish and easy-to-use earphone for daily use that is already in its third edition. They score with punchy sound and rich levels. As far as neutrality and dynamics are concerned, they respond less precisely. I am particularly disturbed by the exaggerated presence which makes listening a bit exhausting, especially in rock music.
