Marshall Major headphones mini-review

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Well I tried them at 32Ohm audio to day...and I gotta say for $99 they are well worth it. Nice small they even fold SMALLER! They had a Nice neutral sound, a hump in the bass a bit but it docent go very low, they were very clear as well  as well as being built very well. I only listened to them for a few minuets before passing them along but I gotta say I was very impressed.

This is very interesting...

I saw them way back when before Christmas and there wasn't enough information out on it so I didn't pull the trigger...

I guess now its starting to gain momentum

I was at 32ohms this weekend and listened to them as well...I was impressed.  Small, and they have the retro cool thing going on.  Sound was good, not great.  Punchy bass, a little muddy but not too bad.  I just listened for a few minutes before going back to the iem's :)

$99 might be a tough price point though.

Yea, some one was saying they were an UrbanEars repackage....but they really didnt sound like it.

The Minors are UrbanEars rebrands but the Majors are legitimately Marshall.

I think it's the UrbanEarz misconception that's stopping purchases...

along with the lack of review samples...

I love the look of these headphones. 


I don't really NEED them, but I'd like to buy them for the look.  


I got to listen to them briefly once, but I can't make a final judgement.


They really do look nice, especially in person though and I while I don't remember them sounding extraordinary (bad source, unamped), I don't recall them sounding horrible either.

I too like these, used right out of the phone or iPod sans amp.  Just picked them up.  The forward full 'mid-bassey' sound was appealing and differs from most all the other headphones I have.  But upon learning it has a mic and that that mic can control my Droid 3 to make calls and/or use voice commands was the deciding factor; and that's working quite well.  As great with Rock as you'd expect, but I think it's even better with Dance music.


Do I wish I didn't pay retail, yes.  But then again, I figured I didn't have to wait and didn't have to pay shipping.  So I splurged.
