Marshall Headphones The Marshall Major | Available Now

By - November 16th, 2010


“There is arguably no piece of equipment that says Rock ‘N Roll more than the Marshall amplifier….” A lot of over-the-top statements are getting thrown around with the release of the Marshall’s first headphone, The Major (which we previewed last month). It’s easy to start getting into all the Jimi Hendrix/Eric Clapton/Gods Of Rock history with these, but first some specs: the Taylor is an ear-cup style headphone with a 15.4mm moving coil dynamic speaker, and the phones include a 40-inch extension cable, along with a 6.3mm adapter, for audiophiles who want to use these for at home-listening to a shelf unit. They are foldable for travel, and compatible with all 3.5 / 6.3 mm music players (yes, that includes the iPod). Marshall teamed up with Zound Industries (creators of Urban Ears) for the production, so real headphone-specific expertise is built in. And about that Marshall styling? There’s a reason people are talking about it: these headphones have an undeniably unique style. Available from the Marshall Headphones website.
