With Marshall amps being the go-to choice of many famous rock musicians, it came as no surprise that when the brand launched its first set of personal headphones, they became an instant hit. The iconic design elements and Marshall’s guaranteed expertise on sound also helped with their popularity. Now the UK-based brand has launched the latest generation of its classic-look headphones, named “Major IV”.
The Major IV’s 40mm custom-tuned dynamic drivers deliver roaring bass, smooth mids, and crisp treble, while an updated ergonomic design provides improvements to the overall shape and fit. New, softer cushions also provide prolonged, comfortable listening. The headphones offer a maximum of over 80 hours of wireless playtime through wireless or USB-C charging for 3 hours, while the quick-charge function allows 15 hours of listening with only 15 minutes of charging.
A new multi-directional control knob is distinctive to the headphone series, and on top of the generic options to play, pause, skip, make volume adjustments and the basic power on and off, Marshall has added smartphone compatibility to keep up with modern times. The 3.5mm socket is another key feature on all Marshall headphones. With Major IV, this can be made use of when power is running low, or even to connect with another set of headphones to share music with a friend.
