Marshall Major II Bluetooth Headphones Review

Overview

The Marshall Major II Bluetooth Headphones gives you the freedom and convenience of a wireless headphone combined with over 50 years of tried and true Marshall performance.

Design

The Marshall Bluetooth Headphones are beautifully padded with soft leather on the earcups and headband, making them extremely comfortable to wear day-to-day and even through long listening sessions. The over-ear headphones are smaller than alternatives which ensure that they can fold up into a fairly compact and robust package for travel. Plus, the over-ear design isolates noise fairly well without active noise cancellation.

Connectivity

The greatest strength of the Marshall Major II headphones is the ease of its connectivity. The rock-solid connectivity is achieved through Bluetooth aptX Technology which allows you to listen up to 30+ hours of music. The aptX technology also minimises audio/video syncing issues, allowing you to watch movies and videos without the dreaded lip sync.

The bluetooth’s headphones multi-function joystick button is also a great addition to the design. It feels robust and gets everything done with minimal fuss. Simply press the button in to pause or play, up or down to adjust skip or reverse track or left or right to adjust the volume. It can all be done incredibly quickly with a nudge of your thumb – and takes very little time to master.

The wireless Marshall headphones also come with a double-ended coil cord with mic and remote that is completely detachable and compatible with any music player that received a 3.5mm jack. When listening to music wirelessly, you can use the empty 3.5mm socket to share your audio with someone else, which is another nice touch.

Sound

As ever, the Marshall Major II headphones excel in sound. The headphones have a distinct sound that’s particularly at home when playing rock music, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t perform well across all other categories. The bass is incredibly solid and the sound is clear and they perform especially well for a pair of well-built wireless headphones for under £150.

They combine great sound quality, solid Bluetooth connectivity and long batter life (32 hours) with simple, easy-to-use controls.
